Scottish Fold

Scottish Fold
Cost: $500-$3,000

These curious kitties owe their hefty price tag to two things: their reputation as an unusually loving companion and their distinctive physical traits. A dominant-gene mutation gives their ears an adorable fold, and they’re known to sit in “Buddha position,” -- straight back, legs, out, paws on the belly. If that isn’t cute enough, they tend to suddenly flop on their back and fall into a deep sleep.
