The Turkish Van is an energetic, intelligent, soft-voiced, and affectionate breed. Also known as "the swimming cat," the Turkish Van is famous for its love of water. It will swim or just lie in the water--most unusual for a cat. Its fluffy, foxlike tail is in perpetual motion.
The Turkish Van is a large, muscular cat, wide-bodied and large-boned. Like the Turkish Angora, the Van has long legs, but its feet are larger than its cousin's. A broad, wedge-shaped head supports large, wide-set ears. Vans may have amber or blue eyes, or one of each. The Van's semi-long, silky coat is somewhat heavier than the Angora's but is also not prone to matting.
Weight: 10-13 lbs.
