If you want a kitten to be a highland, you must use highland or fold ear with highland gene
Please know the pedigree of your cat before you match it
If there is no proof of pedigree, it’s not recommended
Because it is more controversial to fold the ear and erect the ear, we must have regular breeding to ensure that it is true
Otherwise, when I was a child, I might have broken my ears for one day or two
The kittens that come out like this will have problems
Please refer to Zhang Xinyi’s example of two “yingduan” giving birth to folded ears
It shows that one of his two English short ears is broken, but the shape can not be judged
Yes, because the folded ears themselves are matched with British or American ones. If two ears are matched, the offspring will have a great chance of genetic diseases. As long as there is a folding ear gene, whether it is a vertical ear or a folded ear, it is considered as a folded ear cat. It is better not to match two folded ears, but a folded ear cat with two vertical ears (commonly known as folded ears) can match. If there are any questions, I suggest you go to Baidu’s “folding ear cat”, I believe your questions will be answered
The highland cat is a Scotch cat with folded ears and erect ears. Highland fold eared cat is a mutant of the cat with folded ears. Because of its long hair, it can also be said to be a name for the cat with long hair. Its character is not very different from that of ordinary cat. Folding eared cats are born with sweetness. They like to be involved in everything you do, but they are usually quiet and don’t make noises to disturb you. Although their sports talent is average, it doesn’t mean they don’t like playing, but they prefer to be accompanied by their owners. Folding eared cats like to sleep on their back. When they are idle, they sit there like otters and look out the window.
The difference between highland cat and Scotch fold eared cat is that it has long hair and short hair. However, the tail bone problems often occur in the breeding process of short hair individuals. A very excellent short hair folded ear often has tail bone defects, and the tail joint is not flexible or the tail length becomes shorter. This is a big problem that confuses all the fold ear breeders, but the situation of this problem in long hair individuals is much better.
In the CFA cat show, short and long hair ears are divided into groups, not in the same group.
All of the progenies of the two groups were long hairs. The breeding of long hair and short hair, or between short hair and short hair, depends on whether the short hair cat carries the long hair gene. Long hair and short hair without long hair gene all have short hair. Long hair and short hair with long hair gene have both long hair and short hair. Two short hair, both sides need to carry long hair gene, offspring have the probability of long hair.
In foreign countries, especially in the Republic of China, the long hair folded ear is very popular because it is more like the round head without ears and the gorgeous long hair than the short hair. Many breeders will specially breed the long hair folded ears. But in China, because of the lack of knowledge, some people do not know the long hair fold ears, and think that long hair must be a string. On the other hand, the peddlers used jinjila string, or even dropped a thread from Persia, to fold their ears, and gave birth to long haired kittens, which were named as rare high fold ears to make huge profits.
The color of most Highlands in China is silver gradients, which is due to the broken ears and short English of silver gradients. Because of color breeding, the probability of carrying long hair gene is relatively high. As a matter of fact, highland ears are as colorful as short haired ones.
In terms of breeding, the present CFA recognized highland fold eared cats are simply as follows: first, the next generation of long haired folded eared cats and long haired Scotch fold eared cats is called highland fold eared cats; second, long hair folded eared cats bred by a short haired cat and British or American short haired cats are also called highland fold eared cats.
Blue cat color is best with blue cat color, and short lines are best matched with short lines, otherwise they will be nondescript offspring. The atavists are still short haired cats. The long hair gene becomes an invisible factor. The kittens may fold their ears or erect their ears, and the blue cats will have short dark stripes with tiger spots.

Don’t mix your ears. This is the reason for the spread of genetic diseases. Because the pedigree of one side is not clear, it can’t judge the incidence of the disease. And “ear” is not a big misunderstanding that non professional breeders can distinguish. That is, whether you look like a standing ear cat or a standing ear folded cat is recognized as the most difficult breed, so parents should sterilize it if they love it Because once there is a problem is irreversible, and now the market environment is that the general purchase of cats is not guaranteed, so do not breed yourself, and there is a real ear cat does not contain the ear fold gene
It is said that all ears have genetic diseases, which will appear in about eight years. Nowadays, many people use pure folded ears and short beautiful kittens, so that the kittens born will have folded ears and beautiful short ones. If the pure white ears were folded, the stripes on the body would have many shapes, and some would even look like the cheese cat, with only the markings on the head

You can find a pair of Scotch eared cats

The Scotch fold eared cat, a purebred cat with a defect in the fold ear gene, received and
The 2-point-1 is standing ear, but it can only be named after the Scottish Fold ear cat
It can’t be named after American short haired cat or British short hair standing cat!
My cat, is it British or American
You don’t even have a diagram. You can ask CFA or CAA for verification
(the cat breeds recognized by CFA and CAA have purebred names)
Better not. American short and British short face shape and hair color have a big difference, giving birth to a baby will be nondescript. It’s better to match the short ear and the short English.
