We made a diagram, showing the three types of fold-ears in Scottish Fold cats!
Many of you asked about single, double and triple-folded ear varieties in Scottish Folds. As you can see in the close-up, Basil Farrow has three accordion-like folds that make his ears so tiny! Generally, the more desirable ear traits for this breed are — more folds, creating small ears with a nice shape, lying flat against the head.
When you “unfold” it and look closely, you can see Basil has a great example of a triple-folded ear.
He has a rounded head and face, with a short nose — an ideal profile for Scottish Folds.
A perfect circle, from every angle.
Cats often wink to communicate!
This new Sony DSLR camera lens captures his thick fur.
Photo taken with a f 1.8, 50 mm lens, also known as Nifty Fifty.
The 1.8 aperture creates the shallow depth of field seen here, or blurry background.
This way, you can focus on one thing – a fat pink paw, for example – and blur out the rest, for a compelling image!
The 50mm f/1.8 camera lens is ideal for portrait shots.
Not all cats enjoy modeling, but Basil Farrow does.
He opens his big eyes wide, and looks straight at the camera!
Love how this DSLR lens lets in a lot of light, and allows bokeh effects (those bright dots of light in the background).
