You have taken your first step 👣 towards finding your very own wonderful Scottish Fold Kitten! 😻
Right now, you are at the crossroads: ↔️
On one side, a path leads to years of enjoyment with an adorable, loving, goofy but chilled Scottish Fold cat. So what’s on the other side??? 🤔
This path leads to a kitten that around the age of one doesn’t want to play or cuddle anymore. Or even get up to eat or use the litter box. She just wants to lie there and not move because moving hurts. 😿
But because she’s yours and you love her, you embark on a totally different, unplanned journey of vet visits and x-rays, worrying and using up all of your savings (holding off on taking vacations or buying nice new things) because of all of the bills and medicines and therapies to help your poor, sweet kitty. 🌡💉💊
So how do you choose the right path, the one which leads to good times with a happy, healthy, furry new family member instead of the one to heartbreak, sorrow and regret? 💔

I Love my Scottish Fold Cat!! A very large group which doesn’t allow cat sales either, so you are sure to get unbiased opinions. And if no one in the group has ever heard of your prospective breeder, it’s not a good sign!
