The Scottish Visloukhay cat inherited her intelligent character from the British. She behaves with the royal dignity, not allowing herself to be hooligan or persistently demanding something from the owners, maintaining equanimity under any circumstances.
These cats do not really like to walk and do not differ in energy. But this breed cannot be called the lazy. If necessary, they show miracles of dexterity and become excellent hunters. But the key here is “if necessary”. If the cat has the opportunity to calmly receive everything she needs, from the owners, she will not bother herself with extra actions. If only to dispel boredom.
The owner will not have to worry that, having left alone, the cat will begin to frantically tear the wallpaper or jump on cabinets she is not interested. Most likely, she will go into her corner and quietly strangle him while no one at home.
These cats amenable to train and often amuse the owners, easily standing on the hind legs in the pose of the gopher. Features of the structure of the skeleton allow them to do this with ease and sit in this position for a long time.
It is difficult to imagine a more restrained and at the same time more devoted breed. The Scots are monogamous. They are attached to one person in the family and give him all their time and attention. This moment can become a problem if the owner is forced to leave home for a long time these cats do not tolerate loneliness and lack of communication.
With other members of the family, cats of this breed build ideal secular relations they communicate exactly as much as they need so as not to get tired and not violate the rules of etiquette.
The Scots are quite easily coexisting with other animals, but by virtue of character they try to keep them at a distance from themselves, their favorite places and, of course, bowls. These cats are pedantic and chopporn, the boorish attitude from the new companion can get them out of itself in this case, the cat will definitely and clearly make it clear how to behave how to behave.
These cats also get along well with children, showing patience and endurance in relation to them. But they do not like noise, so they can be afraid of active games and escape, hiding in a safe place.
Cats of this breed have thick wool, which must be combed regularly. It is better to do this at least 2-3 times a week. Otherwise, the wool will slide back and in large quantities to remain on the furniture and clothes of the owners.
Another important point that should be paid to special attention is to care for the ears. Cats of this breed have a characteristic bent structure of the ears. For this reason, sulfur accumulates in the ear shells, which should be regularly carefully removed with cotton swabs.
Conditions of detention
The Scottish Visloukh must have a cozy secluded place where it can take refuge from prying eyes. Ideally, you need to choose the option that would not be on the floor, but on top these cats are extremely susceptible to drafts.
Scottes are not only pedants, but also clean. Therefore, the owners should pay special attention to the purity of bowls and pallets. If you put fresh food in a poorly washed bowl or in a bowl with the remains of food, the cat may defiantly turn away and leave.
