Turkish Van Cat

The Turkish Van is a rare and ancient breed of cat that developed in central and southwest Asia and brought to England. This semi-long-haired breed is known for its van-patterned coat as the name suggests. The van pattern is where color is designated to the head and tail of the cat, leaving the rest of its body white. The Turkish Van cat has not only a unique coat, but also a coat that is water repellent and similar in feel to cashmere or rabbit fur. Considered one of the larger cat breeds, the Turkish Van has substantial strength paired with high energy.

The typical Turkish Van Cat has an overall height of 9.0”-11.0" (23-28 cm) and body length of 14.0”-17.0” (36-43 cm). An average Turkish Van Cat weighs between 7-18 lb (3-8 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 12-18 years.
