There’s something about a Scottish fold cat that’s downright irresistible, isn’t there?

We haven’t quite put our finger on just what appeals to us about a cat with folded-down ears; perhaps our admiration for them is based, at least in part, on our affection for Maru, another Scottish fold whose well-documented love of boxes has made him an international phenomenon.

This particular Scottish fold has just discovered a plate of meat on the table and is willing to go to great lengths to investigate. Apparently sitting like a human is nothing new for him, either; owner tansokunyan’s YouTube channel is full of videos of him sitting upright.


An interesting side note: Scottish fold kittens are born with straight (not ‘folded’) ears, and some Scottish folds’ ears never fold over at all.
