Note: To ensure
that our visitors are not confused about what a
Turkish Van looks like, we are restructuring this
section of the site. We are happy to see your photos
of your babies, but will not
be making any new postings to these pages for a while.
Welcome to "Snapshots",
our gallery of Turkish Van and Van-alike cat photos.
What is a Van alike? That is our term for a kitty
that looks very much like a purebred Turkish van, but
who does not have pedigreed ancestors. They will be
van patterned, semi-long haired cats just like their
purebred cousins. This section really expanded thanks
to our visitors who have sent in the wonderful
pictures of their cats. We have photos of cats from
around the world. These include both the purebred
Turkish Van and those that look a lot like one. Make
sure to check out all of the pages as we continually
add new photos as they are sent to us. We are now up
to 17 (WOW) pages of wonderful photos of a variety of
beautiful Turkish Vans and Van-alikes. Please ask for
permission before use of any of the photos in this
|Do you have a
Turkish Van or van-alike? We would love to
feature their picture here.** see Note
** Please send
us their digital file in a .jpg format (please
keep overall photo size less than 20KB).
I will not use blurry photos and don't
have the time to do major editing to them.
Remember, this is a site about Turkish Van
cats, so if you would like your kitty
featured here - it must be a purebred or look
a lot (van patterned and
semi-longhaired!) like a Turkish Van. Please
include a few lines about your cat and we'll
add it to our site in our next update. We do
not post kittens or cats for sale here.
NOTE: We are not currently posting any new photos.
