This race, the only member of the Group of Asian long-haired, Persian chinchilla of the Baroness Miranda Von Kirchberg dates back to the same mating of the cat and the Burmese. The longest hair did not appear in the first generation, but later.
The only tifTanie is recognized in Great Britain. The FIEe is the burmilla, in the Group of Asian Britain, and in North America has become confused with the Chantilly/Tífany. In Australia there is also a breeding program of the tiffanie.

The tiffanie inherited their aspect of the Burmese, and his spectacular coat of the Persian chinchilla. It is not as long or as thick as a Persian, so it is much easier to care for. It also has a silky necklace and plumed tail. It is not as expressive as the Burmese or as quiet as the Persian, why owners and their breeders consider it more balanced and perfect long-haired cat.

Scottish Fold

The origin of Scottish Fold was a white cat named Susie, It was found on a farm near Coupar Angus in Perthshire, Scotland, in 1961.
The ears of Susie made an unusual fold in the Middle, making it asemejara to an OWL . When Susie had kittens, two of them were born with folded ears, and one was acquired by William Ross, a farmer resident of the town. Ross recorded the race in the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) in Great Britain in 1966 and he began to breed Scottish Fold Kittens with the help of geneticist Pat Turner.

The programme produced 76 young in the first three years, 42 with folded ears and 34 with erect ears. The conclusion of this is that the mutation of the ears is a simple dominant gene, one of them provides the gene for straight ears, and one parent provides the gene for folded ears. Statistically the 50% of the kittens are born with folded ears.

Three months after the birth of a female named Snooks, Susie was hit by a car. All Scottish Fold cats share an ancestor common to Susie.

The race was not accepted for exhibition in Europe and withdrew the GCCF registers in 1971, due to the crippling deformity of extremities and the tail in some of the cats, In addition to genetic difficulties and problems in the ears, infections, dust mites, and deafness.

However the Scottish Fold were exported to America and the race continues playing through crosses with British Shorthairs and American short hair . Since then, the Scottish Fold breed has had no problems of mites or infection, Although the accumulation of wax in the ear can be higher than in other cats.

The distinctive physical traits of the breed, along with his reputation as unusually loving companions, It makes the ear folded very requested pets despite their high price, much more than kittens of the more common races.

The Fold are also known to sleep face up and sit with your legs stretched their claws hidden in its belly. This is known as the “position of the Buddha”

The life expectancy of a Scottish Fold is of 15 years.

Persian

Middle long-haired cats are still a symbol of status from the first time that they arrived in Europe. They were brought from Persia to Italy by Pietro della Valle, and from Turkey to France by Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc, both in the early 17TH century, and since then they have had several names. At the end of the 19th century, for budding fashion of cats in Great Britain, He began to raise these cats with the name of penalties, According to the first guidelines created by Harrison Weir. The Persian was one of the first breeds recognised in Great Britain, and towards 1900 It has been accepted in all records that exist today. However, for some time called long-haired cat, that sometimes caused confusion. This breed has a high incidence of retained tesLÍculos and polycystic kidney disease.

The Persian was one of the most popular races around the world during the 20th century. It is still by far the most popular in North America, Although his leadership has declined in recent years, and in Britain recently has ceased to be at the top. It is a sturdy cat, has a squat body, thick legs and chest width. The head is round, and ears, small, with long hair at the base. The eyes, very separate, they are big and round. The nose of the early Persians was much less compressed than the current contest, and the Europeans tend to have more long than in North America, where has concern for their health problems led some farmers to move away from the norm and to deliberately raise a breed of doll face Persians.

Persian Calico

On the other hand, the fur has become longer with each generation, and you can reach 12 cm long in cats of contest.
They are quite lazy and prefer to stay indoors. His long hair need much maintenance, daily grooming requires a considerable investment of time. The growing popularity of the exotic It has been damaged.
