My name is Jenny, I am a nurse and a long-time cat lover. Working through the front lines of the pandemic made me realize that I really valued a nonjudgmental companion after my hardest days. I was searching for a breed of cats that were easygoing and cute. It wasn't long before I came across the Scottish Fold breed. I adopted two kittens to start, and they were the most docile and well-tempered cats that we’ve ever met. Initially, we did not plan to operate as professional Breeders. However, after falling in love with the breed and finding that everyone that met our cats did, too, we decided to do our part in preserving the Scottish Fold breed. I researched and read every single piece of literature that I could find about the breed. Pretty quickly, we decided that we wanted to dedicate the rest of our lives to these fluffy monsters. Queens Scottish Fold was born from the love of this special breed. In 2022, we decided to expand into breeding British Shorthairs as well. We are expecting kittens from our pilot golden program in 2023.
Due to my medical background, I treat breeding as both a science and an art. My top priorities are to breed healthy, well-adjusted, and sweet-tempered kittens above all else.
Osteochondrodysplasia is a disease that is unique to Scottish Folds. It was discovered that if a folded ear Scottish fold was bred to another folded ear, many of the offspring developed a severe crippling lameness early in life. Cats affected had shortened, malformed legs and tails as well as abnormalities affecting the growth plates and spine. Scottish folds should be bred ONLY folded ear to straight ear and are not to be bred by people who are not dedicated to the health and well-being of these animals. We genetically test all our breeding cats for the fold gene and never, ever breed fold to fold.
At Queens Scottish Fold, we take our responsibility to be an ethical breeder seriously and strive to ensure the well-being of all our cats. We are an ACA, and TICA (The International Cat Association) registered cattery and voluntarily abide by their code of ethics. All of our breeding cats are genetically tested, and negative for PKD. All our testing is through UC Davis Veterinarian Genetics Laboratory/Optimal Selection. We provide a one-year genetic health guarantee on all of our kittens.
We do not believe in cages or kennels. Our kittens and cats have free roam of our home (both floors and the basement!) and their own dedicated cat bedroom. Due to us living in Queens, NY, we have ample space to dedicate to our cats with every kitten raised underfoot. Our whole family is involved in socializing the kittens, they become accustomed to different people and loads of traffic in the home. We even train them from an early age to tolerate baths and nail trimming! The result is well-adjusted, cuddly, and social kitties that will make themselves right at home with you.
Our kittens come with age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, vet check, health certificate, health guarantee against genetic defects, and lifetime breeder support. We feed only raw feed and freeze-dried raw food ensures a balanced diet. We have multiple filtered water fountains, multiple scratch posts, large Himalayan salt lamps (to improve air quality), countless air filters, two Roomba vacuums, and four Robolitter Boxes to ensure your kitten will grow up in a healthy and clean environment.
