FAQs, Photos, and Information on the Turkish Van Cat

we rated with RSAC


The Turkish Van Site is dedicated to providing information on the unique and lovely Turkish Van cats. Since 1988, my friend Deb Hayes and I have been working to promote and preserve this unique and intelligent breed of cat. Although we had not seen one at that time, we were intrigued with all we had read and decided that we would work together to further the Turkish Van cat as a breed. We have learned a lot about Turkish Vans since that time and our enthusiasm for them has not waned. They are truly wonderful cats with a distinctive personality and beauty that you have to experience to fully appreciate.
