What first draws your attention to the Highlander is its incredible ears. Standing tall, open, and with a slight backwards flare, they bring to mind the large tufted ears of the Canadian Lynx. The dominant curl gene, which was introduced to this breed, makes the ears more noticeable and exotic in appearance. The Highlander's ears have more of a vertical crimp than a horizontal one. Having this vertical crimp makes the ears stand tall and open. The ears should not fold back into a tight curl. This breed's chin and muzzle are also very noticeable. The muzzle, long and squared-off with large whisker pads and resting on top of a well-defined deep chin, evokes the image of a wild cat.
What most people like about this breed is the substantial body structure. Watching a Highlander move is pure beauty as their long hind legs flex and the heavy, pronounced muscles ripple between their shoulder blades, reminiscent of the wild cat. The Highlander’s feet are most impressive; they are large with prominent knuckles, built for the stamina for which the Highlander is known.
Anchored on the muscular hips of the Highlander is a natural short tail. Ranging in length from 1 inch to hock length, it should be thick and preferably articulated. Though a straight tail is preferred, sometimes slight twists and kinks may be detected. Many times there will also be a noticeable fat pad at the end of the tail.
