Well, actually, my sister has a British, very similar to your cat. Although the British and the Scots are very similar to each other, but you can identify some differences.

Ears. This is the main and most striking difference between these two breeds. The British are born only with short and wide at the base of the ears .. a bit set aside, standing, the tips are slightly rounded. In Fold Scots, they are also small, but folded down and forward (Scottish Fold).From the tip of the nose to the tip of the ears, a triangle should appear, and the ears, according to the breed standard, should not extend beyond the contour of the head. In Scots straight-eared Scots (Scottish Straight), the ear is narrower at the base, it is placed almost vertically, without a noticeable tilt forward and sideways. It is this form and the laying of the ears in the straights that determine the spectacular expression of the “folded ear” mutation in their descendants — the folds, when the ear completely fits into the contours of the head. On the massive, heavy head of the Briton, the narrow ears of the Straight look inharmonious. This is the main, but not the only, difference between the British cat from the Scottish There are also features of other parts of the body. - The body. Both representatives have an excellent athletic body: the chest is developed and wide, massive, but in Scots it is even from shoulders to pelvis, has more rounded shapes. - paws. The British are thick and short, which is why the animal looks too massive, the paw pads are round and large. The Scottish breed has paws of medium length, they are slender and proportionate to the body, although the pads are the same as those of the British counterparts. - Head.In the British it is round with well-developed cheekbones, and the second breed has a clear chin and an unusually strong jaw. In Scottish she resembles the head of an owl (this is one of the main differences). - Nose. In the British breed - short, wide and straight, with a small depression, without a stop. In the Scottish breed - short, wide, with a noticeable base at the forehead, without a stop. - Tail. This part of the body will also help to distinguish: in the British it is much thicker and shorter, the tip is rounded, and in the Scots of medium thickness it is flexible (sure!), The tip is slightly pointed. Scots have a vice: a hook on the tail, an extremely short, fixed tail. - Eyes. And those and others they are round, planted widely, this feature is only among representatives of the British and Scots. The second professionals gave the expression "babyface", that is, like a child, the color may be different, it depends on the color. - Wool.
