Turkish van

The Turkish van is a cat called “van katu” in its historic homeland, which means “Van Lake cat”. According to local legend, these snow-white cats caught mice on Noah’s Ark, and when they reached the land, Allah blessed them with his touch. In those places, which touched the divine hand, wool acquired a crimson hue. These cats came to Europe during the time of the Crusades, but their purposeful breeding began in England in the sixties of the last century.

Dense, muscular, elongated cat with short legs and a short wedge-shaped head – this is the Turkish van. Due to the high-located big ears it looks constantly alert. Oval eyes are most often orange, less often blue, in separate individuals one eye is blue and the other is orange. The paw pads and the tip of the nose are pink.

Wool should be completely white, long, silky, without undercoat. Color spots ideally should be placed on the muzzle from the nose to the front edge of the ears. The spots may be chestnut-red or cream. The tail is of medium length, fluffy, dyed from base to tip, with brighter rings alternating with pale ones. The Turkish van has a remarkable property – its silky hair does not fall down, and therefore it is easy to care for it.
Each cat can become a real tigress, protecting its young, and in particular it is characteristic of Turkish van cats. Kittens of this breed open their eyes early – already for 3-4 days, and in the third week of life they are already completely independent. They are characterized by enormous mobility and irreducible energy. For further successful socialization of the animal, it is imperative to constantly communicate with the kitten and gently, but persistently bring it up.

The Turkish van is an aboriginal breed that has retained many natural features. At home, these cats were excellent anglers, and their descendants retained the love of water. They love to look at the trickles of water, and they can even be taught to swim in the bathroom. After bathing they dry out quickly, but you need to ensure that the cat does not lie in the draft. It is believed that due to frequent washing these cats do not cause allergies.

Turkish van has a high level of intelligence, but at the same time, perseverance and even stubbornness. These cats, like dogs, choose one family member on which their love is focused. They are sociable, lively and cheerful, but they require a lot of attention, their maintenance in the conditions of a close city apartment can be problematic.
