    Most cat breeds are prone to those same diseases… especially kidney disfunction. Don’t let that deter you from this breed.

    I had a beautiful Scottish Fold for 18 1/2 years. He was the most loyal, trusting and wonderful cat I have ever known. He was an angel kitty and I miss him terribly. Nutmeg 04/93 – 10/10/11

    We have a 6 month old scottish fold kitten. He is so cute, and yes he follows us all over the house and likes to lean on our feet when we’re in the kitchen. He is so snoopy and wants to get into everything, including the garbage. He is an absolute doll to have. He also gets along very well our other 3 cats. We love him and his habbits. This is my first scottish fold and we love having a lap kitty again. Our other 3 dont sit on us much. My only concern is , he loves to bite, and I am having a problem getting him to stop. HELP!!!!!!
