Scottish Fold Kitties
All domestic cats are descended from the African Wild Cat.In the nineteenth century the concept of breeding cats for racial purity and selling them for exorbitant prices began in England. Breeding was constricted to native cats only and was increased to include other cats later.
  The Scottish Fold is a British shorthair cat with folded back ears and round eyes born in 1961 in Scotland. The Governing Council in Britain has banned the breed from all cat shows. “Others, such as the Sphynx and Scottish Fold, remain highly controversial, with some strong feelings against even continuing these lines.”(22)
