Taylor’s cat is a rare breed known as the Scottish Fold. These cats are recognized by their distinctive folded-down ears.
According to Scottish newspaper the Daily Record, the breed has become popular in Hollywood with stars like Kirsten Dunst, Mia Farrow and Patrick Dempsey getting their own.
Some pet websites report that due to the high demand reputable breeders have been charging as much as $1,000 for one kitten.
