Let's meet Sylvania's latest family - The Maple Scottish Fold Cats

So who exactly are the Scottish Fold Cats? If you’re like me, you would have never heard of them before. However, in actual fact, Scottish Fold Cats do exist!

But let’s do the formal introductions first (as afterall, Sylvanians are usually very polite and well-mannered!) and meet this lovely new Family.

The Maple Cat Father is Theodore and Maple Cat mother is Georgina , who both work in the brand new Sylvanian Town.

Sylvanian Families Tram Driver

Theodore is the Tram Driver, and Sylvanians are often treated to his Free Guided Tour of Sylvania while enjoying the ride, as he often gives a running commentary while his tram travels along the gleaming cobbled streets and colourful buildings of Sylvania’s town centre.

Georgina is a bit of an entrepreneur and runs her own Gelato shop in town, with all the delectable flavours you can imagine. Of course, Theodore helps his wife’s Gelato shop along a little, by stopping his tram right outside her charming pale blue Gelataria. That’s a bit much temptation for most people! 

And then there are their two cute kids, Jasper and Milly and let's not forget the Maple Cat twins and Maple cat baby. Here they all are. What a handsome line up!

Sylvanian Families Maple Scottish Fold Cat see the similarity

A  Scottish  Fold Cat - do you see the likeness to the new Sylvanian Families Maple Cat Family?

The Scottish Fold is a breed of domestic cat with a natural dominant-gene mutation that affects cartilage throughout the body, causing the ears to "fold,” bending forward and down towards the front of the head, which gives the cat what is often described as an "owl-like" appearance.

They display surprisingly round features: a round face, emphasized by flat ears; large, circular eyes; a short snout (compared to other cat breeds) and a round body structure with short to medium legs.

Scottish Fold Cat information about the cat family

Scottish Fold Cats tend to be a very smart "people" cat with a temperament that's usually sweet, bright & quiet with an easy-going nature.

Where did Scottish Fold Cats come from?

The first known Scottish fold cat, Susie, was reportedly found roaming a farm in Perthshire, Scotland, circa 1961.
