Turkish Angora Cat

The Turkish Angora Cats are a natural breed that originated from Turkey and flourished there for centuries. They are highly regarded in Turkey as part of their national heritage. A few of these lovely cats were taken to Europe in the 16th century by travelers to Turkey. Some were given as gifts to the French royal family. Turkish government created a breeding program in several of their zoos to protect and propagate their breed. Today in Turkey the white Turkish Angora is highly prized.

They are long, slender having a muscular body with long legs and tail. They have large, almond shaped eyes with color ranging from green, gold, green-gold, copper, blue, or odd-eyed. Ears are pointed and large, eyes are almond shaped and the head is massive with a two plane profile. Pure white is the main color of Turkish Angora, they come in other colors too. They have a kinked or abnormal tail. There seems to be a connection between Ankara Cats and Persians, and the Turkish Angora is also a distant cousin of the Turkish Van Cat. Like almost all other breeds, of cat, Turkish Angora females tend to be smaller than males.

The Turkish Angora, as known today, is one of the most outgoing, affectionate, intelligent breeds known. This cat tends to attach itself strongly to one person, but is also very loving and playful which makes them an excellent choice for families with young children, and lively companions for senior adults. The males are the better pets, being even more intensely loving than the females. Turkish Angoras love to jump and play. They often learn to fetch and do tricks. However, what they enjoy best is sitting on the lap of their owner to love and cuddle. Turkish Angoras are graceful, energetic and usually the first to welcome visitors into your home.
