This is by far the saddest looking critter on our list of the most expensive cat breeds in the world.
As the name implies, Scottish Folds originated in Scotland, sometime around the early 1960s.
This breed can be easily recognized for its folded ears. This is caused by a dominant gene that impacts the cartilage in its entire body.
In some cases, you can find Scottish Folds for about $800. However, this breed can cost you more than $1,500.
Despite their melancholy appearance, Scottish Folds are far from depressing creatures.
Scottish Folds are generally happy, energetic cats that enjoy socializing. Additionally, they love attention.
Health can be something to worry about with the Scottish Fold, as it is prone to degenerative joint issues.
