Specific Health Recommendations


Scottish Kilts are susceptible to polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and cardiomyopathy. Besides this, these cats are very healthy.


Visit our health page for more general Munchkin information.


Scottish Kilts love being with their people and joining in whatever they are doing. They love attention. The last thing a Kilt wants is to be left alone for hours on end, so if you are often gone during the day, make sure to have another friendly cat around to play with. When you get home make sure to spend plenty of time with these little guys and give them plenty of lap time.
