My Scottish Fold Manz

by Debra
(Modesto, Ca)



I have had this cat from a wild litter since he was 4 weeks old.

He has no tail and has the flat ears.

He has recently developed Osteochondrodysplasia and is in a lot of pain.

My vet is doing the blood work to start a medication program.

The money I will (and have) spent is worth the joy he brings me.

The nature of these cats is so loving and he is a joy to be around.

Hi Debra. With his special looks and you having bottle fed him, I understand why you love him. I hope the medication works so that you can have many more happy years together. 🙂

Still it's interesting that Scottish Fold genes have somehow ended up in those wild cats.

Blade - the Manz/scottish fold
by: Debra

This cat came from a ranch in the central valley of California. His parents are both wild cats. A friend told me about the kittens born to this mother and when she saw a new litter, she robbed the nest while they were young. I bottle fed him for a few months.
His name is Blade because he can have a sharp edge at times.
He was born to a litter of only 3 kittens. Two of that litter looked like him with no tails and the folded ears. The third was normal looking.

Natural mutation
by: Michael

It is interesting that you say that Manz came from a wild litter. That implies that his folded ears came from a natural mutation rather than through deliberate breeding. I don't know how common folded eared cats are as feral cats. It is a thought.

Thanks for showing us Manz. He looks like he could have been purebred actually; an abandoned Scottish Fold purebred cat that was not to "type", meaning that the breeding program did not produce a cat that was inline with the breed standard.
