Brief description of breed

At one of the American farms, a kitten with curved ears was born at one of the American farms. Who was the father of this cutie, called Suzy, unknown.

Primary colors

Today, the number of scottish-fildal colors includes about a hundred variations. And the color of the wool of the Scottish cat is not installed immediately. In half a year, the kitten expects the first molting, after which the children’s fur is changing on adult. Later, the colors may still be changed and finally installed only to two years.

The Scots has 2 main genes that are responsible for red and black wool colors. In addition, there is a third gene, called the diluent, which determines the saturation of the pigment. One of the two main genes takes the top, a combination occurs in a different order, resulting in various colors from cattle-fildys.

It is because of such a game of genes from black, a bluish color turned out, from chocolate – lilac and so on. In the formation of the color, such indicators are important as the degree of proscuration of each hairs of wool and the presence of stains, drawings. Among Scottish Folds there are also pure-white individuals. This means that they have no gene responsible for the color and suppressing the gene gene by other genes.

Point

Coloring in this case reminds the colors of the Siamese cats, that is, the basic color of the body is always light, and the mask, ears, the tips of the paw and tail – darker. There are subspecies with lilac, chocolate, creamy blue and even turtleclosures. This color arises due to a special gene that darkens the body areas at a lower temperature.

Tortie or turtle

The name of this rare color is derived from the English word “turtle”. Coloring form spots of dark, red or cream colors. They are black and or chocolate-red, blue or lilac-cream. At the same time, the colors are distributed evenly, so they do not need to be confused with tricolor cats. Normally, such a color is only in females. If the turtle scottish-fold of male is born, then this is the result of the mutation, and it will not bring offspring.
