    Overview

    This is the long-haired version of the Scottish Fold which originated in the village of Coupar Angus in the Lowlands of Scotland. There were long-haired individuals in the Scottish Fold stock from the very beginning of the breed, but when the official standard was written, it referred only to the short-haired version.

    Character

    The Longhair Scottish Fold cat has proven to be a popular variety proving that with a responsible owner and breeder management, it is no more of a problem than the button-nosed Persian or the Manx. These quiet, sweet-natured, easygoing cats are most content when they are around people which makes them very good with children.

    Appearance

    Longhair Scottish Fold cats have coats of varying length from medium to long; hair is longest on the ruff, leg britches (the long hair along the back part of the rear legs) and plumed tail. They come in many colors and patterns.
