Physical characteristics

They mostly have a white, silky, medium-long length coat, no undercoat and fine bone structure. There seems to be a connection between Ankara Cats and Persians (see below), and the Turkish Angora is also a distant cousin of the Turkish Van. Although they are known for their shimmery white coat, currently there are more than twenty varieties including black, blue, reddish fur. They come in tabby and tabby and white, along with smoke varieties, and are in every color other than pointed, lavender, and cinnamon (all of which would indicate breeding to an outcross).

Eyes may be blue, green or amber, but it is often a combination of one blue and one amber. The W gene responsible for white coat and blue eye is closely related to the their hearing ability, and presence of a blue eye can indicate the cat is deaf to the side the blue eye is located. However, a great many blue and odd-eyed whites have normal hearing, and even deaf cats lead a very normal, if indoor, life.

Ears are sharp and relatively bigger, head is long and wide. Another characteristic is the tail, which is kept parallel to the back.

Behavioral Characteristics

Turkish Angora is an intelligent, adorable and very curious breed, very active throughout their life-span. Angoras love to bathe with their owners (another link to the cousin Turkish Van cat, which is known as "the swimming cat"). They also tend to bond with their owners and try to be the center of attention, often doing their part in conversations. They usually don't like to be held for long, but like to stay in human presence, happily playing for hours.

Turkish Angoras are also very fond of high places, such as the tops of doors and bookshelves. Owners of Turkish Angoras should be careful to avoid letting electrical wires dangle out in the open. The Angora will chew them with their exceptionally sharp teeth. Turkish Angoras are also known to run the household by supervising every activity of their owner.

History

Like many domestic cats, it is likely that Turkish Angora descended from the African wildcat and led the way to Persian cats. The mountainous regions of Turkey allowed for confinement of the long haired breeds like Turkish Van Cat and Turkish Angora, and it is reported by French biologist de Buffon that long-furred cats have originated in Asia Minor.

Longhaired cats were imported to Britain and France from Turkey, Persia and Russia as early as the late 1500s, though there are indications that they appeared in Europe as early as 1300s due to the Crusades. The Angora cat was recognized as a distinct breed in Europe by the early 1600s. Attempts to breed them outside Turkey yielded little success. One theory speaks about the strong negative electrical fields dominant in Central Anatolia, especially in Ankara.
