Hi everyone, we are new to the cat breeding world and we are getting confused with all the articles and books we are reading.

we have a lovely TICA and WCF ny24 queen that we are planning to breed officially (we have even submitted licence request to our local council) once she is ready of course in a few months time.
We are starting to look around for a lovely boy and we are aware that we need a straight eared stud due to all the ethical and health problems that could occur if we breed fold with fold. This makes sense!!!
What we are not understanding is what straight boy breed are we allowed to breed that would allow us to register the litter later.
If we find a lovely BSH boy will we be able to register the litter with TICA even if both parents are technically two different breeds (Scottish fold and BSH)?or do we need to find a Scottish straight boy to be able to register them with TICA?
Your expertise on this is much appreciated
Thanks in advance

Thank you Goldycat.
We did see this in the TICA breed standards what we were not understanding the term outcrosses. So we can potentially find a BSH suitable and breed her.
will this not ruin the quality of the blood line of the of the litter shown on the pedigrees? Example our queen has 5 generations of only SFS cats, no BSH or other straight ear breeds are shown from both her parents.
sorry for all the questions we just don’t want to make a fatal mistake from the very beginning.

It's impossible for her to only have SFC in her bloodline. Breeding two Scottish fold cats result in severe genetic deformities. You need to breed to a british or american short hair. Please do genetic testing first to ensure no genetic health risks. Scottish fold cats are prone to a lot of health issues.
