Cat breeds with floppy ears
The Scottish Fold is the most well-known kind of floppy-eared cat. All cats have flat, straight ears at birth, but by the third week they are fully erect.
The same holds true for Scottish Fold cats. The distinction is that most Scottish Folds have an ear fold by
the time their ears are upright. There are certain Scottish Folds, though, that don't genuinely seem folded.
In contrast to the upright ears of the majority of other cat breeds, the American Curl's ears are curled rather than folded, yet they nevertheless
have a "floppy" look. Cat guardians from all around the world now highly prize cats with these distinctively curled ears.
The Oriental cat breed features huge ears and a wedge-shaped skull. Although only show cats are permitted to have straight,
upright ears, some Oriental cats have lower ears that may even curl over at the tips. They appear large and floppy as a result.
