Cat Breed of the Day: Turkish Van

Turkish Van

From Petfinder –  While you might be drawn to the Turkish Van for his fascination with water, you’ll fall in love with the breed for his other qualities. ‘Vans are energetic, agile, and intelligent. They are extremely healthy and, get along with people swimmingly,’ notes one Van owner. You may need a few months of working out to keep up with them, however; Vans are famous for their ‘action-packed’ temperament. They are talkative, demanding of attention, and show great gusto at dinnertime. Breeders also say that Vans are known for their attachment to their human companions, and sometimes that makes transferring a Van from one household to another difficult.

Do any of you out there own a Turkish Van?  If so how much do they love water?  We’ve seen numerous videos of Vans going nuts on sinks.  We love it!  Please send in any great pics or stories or videos of your Turkish Van.  In the meantime we hope you enjoy this gallery of Turkish Van kittens and cats.   Be sure to click “next” beneath each picture to view them all!
