Do you think this is a message worth putting out there? Then here are several ways you can support this site:
1. Make a donation
The most obvious way is by making a small donation. Here is a link to a PayPal pool set up for this purpose:
Link to PayPal Pool: Scottish-Fold-Kittens.info
Be sure and select “Send money to friends and family” in order not to have any extra fees!
Because I think it’s important for this information to be out there for a long time to come, I will accept donations to cover the costs of running the website. But once two years of fees have been covered in advance (ca. $40), any excess will be donated to an animal rescue organization for cats.
All donations of at least $5 will be listed below, including the first name and last initial of the person donating, the date and the amount, and at the end of the year how much was donated to which organization. I apologize but as a private person, who is not registered as a charitable organization, I will not be able to issue donation receipts for tax purposes.
Clarification of 12 January 2020: A malicious rumor has been put into the world that what I have written above is a threat to close down the website if no one chooses to donate to it. I want to assure everyone that if no donations are collected, I am willing to finance the site myself – it doesn’t cost that much. I would just have a bad conscience if I have less money left over for my favorite animal rescue organization.
You can donate directly donate to the Fellnasen e.V. instead. Their email address for PayPal is firstname.lastname@example.org, Memo: sfk.info Clinic. Send me a screenshot of your donation of $5 or more and I will include your name below in the List of Donors for this site. 😺
But, of course, you may read all the articles on this website for free. In face, I’m thrilled if you do! 🖤
List of Donors:
- Norman M. and Steffi B. have donated the hosting of this website free of charge since November 2019.
2. Send in your Kitten Pictures and Stories
Does your Fold suffer from hereditary condition? Then please send your photos and stories to Barbara Lynne at email@example.com and give us permission to share them on the website, Facebook page or wherever the texts appear.
Here’s a good example of what a page for your kitten’s page could look like, but single photos are also gladly accepted and published:

Use of these photos was kindly granted by their owners, free of charge. I would like to thank all of you for allowing me to include photos of your fur babies anywhere this text appears (online, in a shareable PDF etc.) in the hopes of preventing other kittens from going through the same thing.
If you have a Scottish Fold with issues and would like to donate a kitten picture or for their story to appear here, please contact Barbara Lynne at firstname.lastname@example.org
