15 Reasons To Never, EVER Adopt A Scottish Fold


The Scottish fold is characterized by their unique, yet adorable appearance. They display surprisingly round features and a round body structure with short to medium legs.


Famed for their highly adaptive, playful yet even-keeled attitudes, it is easy to introduce them to new pets, people and settings.


We know what you're thinking; perfect adoption material right? Well you would most definitely be mistaken and here are 15 reasons why…


1. Adorable? Nah…


Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment ✌️Have a pawsome Monday 😽

Кого достал этот зубодробительно-холодный март, дайте пятюню✋🏻 Решила, что, может, я забыла, а, на самом деле, в прошлом году тоже в марте было холодно. Наверно. Скорей всего. «Ни-фи-га» сказал мне Инстаграм, и продемонстрировал прошлогоднее 5 марта, где довольная Лена в короткой куртке, кедах и – о боже – без шапки😱 На секундочку, на сегодняшний почти-конец-марта, после вынимания руки из кармана, она просто перестаёт существовать🤨 Надо подать идею Gucci разработать коллекцию специально для России. Модели представят дизайн весенних шуб, летних меховых платьев, а вместо голов в руках будут нести обогреватели «Ветерок». Стильно, эффектно, и главное, тепло👌🏼 #FromRussiaWithHeat

If you do decide that you want a Scottish Fold, see if you can find one in a shelter before deciding to buy.


If you want to get a Scottish Fold kitten, make sure that you don’t support the abusive kitten mills and backyard breeder industry by getting your new family member through a trusted breeder. Ethical breeders will want to meet you several times before they sell you a kitten, will let you see the kitten with their mom, brothers and sisters and will raise their cats in a home environment.
