 In the North America, Colorpoint Scottish Folds are extremely rare, and quite controversial in the cat fancy.  They have long been accepted for championship competition by CFF, TICA, and CCA.  In fact, our colorpoint folds were instrumental in getting this unique color-pattern accepted in both CFF and TICA.  In CFA, pointed folds are not allowed, and are not registerable, presuming the color is a result of direct  hybridization to other breeds (Himalayans, Siamese, Birmans, etc) to attain this color.
 
Colorpoint Scottish Folds, are a natural occuring phenomenon.  Since the early days of the breed, folds were bred to any unrelated cat to insure its genetic diversity.  Some of those cats were taken from shelters, and many of those cats carried the colorpoint gene.  Since our lines are directly descended from those cats, colorpoints often appear in our litters.  The gene often remains hidden appearing only occasionally in random litters.  Colorpoint British have been accepted and shown in Europe, and all British are acceptable outcrosses for Scottish Folds.  In fact, many of the folds being shown and bred in Eastern Europe are colorpointed folds, in large classes of over twenty colorpoint folds.  There are no cat shows in this country were one sees more than five Scottish Folds entered, in all classes combined
 
Colorpoint folds are beautiful, with the dark points dramatizing the folded ears.  Because colorpoint folds get their color from colorpoint British or from natural populations, the eye color is nearly deep purple, rivaling even the cornflower blue of today's ragdoll.
