After researching many different breeds we settled on getting a Scottish Fold. Being in New York City we thought that it would be easy to find a breeder close by. In fact there are few. We contacted many breeders but no one responded to us fast enough. We then looked geographically further away. We wanted a male between 6 months to a year old that was calm, not too energetic and not too chatty. We found “Quietimes” site on the web and saw several kittens that looked like they would fit us perfectly. We emailed the web site and within minutes Sue called us back. We gave her our thoughts and she gave us her recommendations. We called her back several times with a myriad of questions about the cat we were thinking of and each question was answered thoroughly and calmly. By the following hour we had our Fold. His name was JoeJoe. Our 7 month old kitten had his arrival date set and we were waiting. Sue called us and said the weather was getting cold and would we mind if JoeJoe came a bit sooner. We wanted to be as caring as Sue. When we finally brought him to the car he was so small with huge amber eyes folded ears and the color of an orange creamcicle. No hissing, biting or clawing. When we got him home it took him several days to relax as he must have been scared. He did not like being picked up and would dart away and hide in spaces I didn't think he could get into, really very small and narrow spaces. It was actually pretty amazing to see. Slowly over the next few weeks he has claimed the entire apartment as his own. Once he is in his spot he loves to be pet and stroked. He loves his paws massaged and his belly rubbed and his ears scratched. He is calm when he is being groomed and doesn't flinch when his nails are trimmed. He never sleeps further away than two feet from our bed. He is a quick learner as he in the past month can sit, stand up on his hind legs, shake hands, high five, down, lay on his side and roll over on command. We had a 2 year old over the house last night and the boy had his face directly in our cats face and nothing at all happened not a peep. In all this is a spectacular breed for a calm, stable and even tempered feline pet. Thank you so much Sue the best!! Show | Edit | Destroy
