This super cute video by mugumogu, introduces Maru, a Scottish Fold cat, and helped him to become a “Youtube star”. Its quirky antics and playful nature makes him one of the cutest and most famous cats on the planet!

A Scottish Fold cat is a breed that has a natural dominant gene mutation that makes their ear cartilage have a fold. Their ears bend forward and down towards the front of their head. This feature makes them look somewhat like owls. This rare feature gives them a charming, unusual look and this, together with their good temperament, makes them one of the most sought-after breeds (therefore also more expensive).

The origins of the Scottish Fold breed can be traced back to one cat: Susie, a white barn cat who was found at a farm near Coupar Angus in Perthshire, Scotland in 1961. She had unusual folded ears and when she had kittens, so did they! A cat breeder named William Ross purchased one of the kittens and began to breed Scottish Fold kittens with the help of Pat Turner, a geneticist. Maru, and all other Scottish Fold cats, trace their ancestry back to Susie.

There are some Scottish Folds that have straighter ears, but their temperament doesn’t change. They are naturally good natured and can adjust pretty well to other animals. They are very friendly and affectionate. As you can see in the video, Maru is one playful pet and he is inherently curious, which is a trait that is notorious among cats. Scottish Folds are also known for sleeping on their backs and they pose in different weird positions that makes their antics so hilarious. They also have a soft voice that makes them all the more adorable.

When your pet cat gets older, you have to take note of its tail. A stiff tail can be a sign of arthritis – so you need to have it checked with a vet so that proper treatment is implemented. Another tip in caring for Scottish Folds is to comb their coat weekly to remove dead hair and to help distribute the oil that is naturally produced by their bodies. It’s also a great idea to keep them as an indoor-only cat to protect them from other diseases and danger from attacks by other animals.

Okay, so here’s the video, enjoy:
