The Scottish Shorthair belongs to the Scottish breed group, along with the Scottish Fold. Both breeds come in longhair and shorthair varieties, and Scottish Shorthairs are identical to Scottish Folds - save for their straight, upright ears.
Scottish Shorthairs are medium-sized cats with an overall round appearance. They retain a sweet, kitten-like disposition throughout their lives.
Females tend to weigh about 3 to 4.5 kilos in weight, while males tend to be about 4 to 6 kilos. Many cats may be smaller or larger than average.
Children And Other Pets
Scottish Shorthairs are relaxed cats with sweet personalities. They adapt well to different home environments—making them suitable for just about any type of family.
These loyal cats enjoy snuggling with their people and are world-class nappers. But when something gets their attention, they'll sit up like a prairie dog to see what's going on. Though not rowdy or overly energetic, they do like to play and can learn to fetch.
Scottish Shorthairs are generally quiet cats. But when they have something to say, they use their tiny voice to get your attention.
Scottish Shorthairs are playful characters and will get along well with both children and, once properly introduced, other family pets.
