BREED PROFILE:
Turkish Angora

Turkish Angora
The ideal Turkish Angora is a balanced, graceful cat with a fine, silky coat that shimmers with every movement, in contrast to the firm, long muscular body beneath it.

Turks are not only intelligent, but extremely adaptable, loving and playful, which makes them an excellent choice for families with young children, and lively companions for senior adults. They readily accept dogs and other animals, but their assertive natures often make them the "alpha" pet in the household.

COAT LENGTH: Longhair
CHARACTERISTICS: Originated in Turkey; silky intermediate length coat; long body; several colors and patterns
PERSONALITY: Busy and curious

Elegant, finely-boned creatures, Turkish Angoras are graceful, energetic and usually the first to welcome visitors into your home. It is also not unusual for a pet Turk to act as the "host" at a party or other gathering, inspecting and interacting with every guest. It is no wonder that they are often considered "dog-like!"
