Scottish Fold kittens are possibly the MOST adorable Kitten there is. But as YingYing said, thanks to the fold of their ear being caused by a cartilage defect if the breeding isn't extremely careful there can be some problems with joints and such. However, outside of that they are a generally healthy breed, but you should be careful.
But they have really great personalities too. Little Owl-like calm and sweet cats.
I too would like to look into getting a Scottish Fold, but I'm torn between rescuing a cat from a shelter (where I doubt many Scottish Folds can be found) and contacting a respected breeder :/ All three of the cats I've shared my life with have been rescues and I strongly believe in adopting over breeding. But I probably won't be making this decision for a couple years as I'm still a student ^^
They are cuties and I agree, I tend to want to rescue kitties from a shelter, just because we can give them such better lives. Maybe I'll get one later in life. Thanks guys for the info regarding the health risks as well.
There is a scottish fold alley cat in my neighborhood. I always though that he got into a fight and that is why his ears were like that until I was watching a cat show and saw that it's an actual breed. Let's just say he is one tough looking alley cat lol. I have tried to pet him but he wild and runs like the wind lol.
All kitties are pretty babies!! I got my big guy at the pound a few years ago. He was about 2 years old (but the pound always says that if they don't know for sure).
They had him listed as a Siamese, but I knew better (long haired, eyes were not crossed and he was quiet). Figured out much later that he may be a mix of either a Ragdoll or a Birman, or both.
He has turned out to be the best cat I have ever had or been around.
