The Turkish Angora, as known today, is the most outgoing, beautiful, affectionate, intelligent breed known. This cat tends to attach itself strongly to one person, but is also very loving and playful with the whole family, as well as with strangers. Therefore, it is a fabulous family pet, as well a great pet for older or single people living alone. The males are the better pets and companions, being even more intensely loving than the females. Turkish Angoras love to jump and play. They often learn to fetch and do tricks. However, what they enjoy best is sitting on the lap of their owner to love and cuddle.Care: The Turkish Angora has a very silky, single coat, which does not mat. Grooming is a matter of a twice weekly combing with a rather fine-toothed grooming comb, or a slicker brush to remove the dead hair. However, during the spring molting season, more frequent grooming is essential to prevent hairballs.Style: The Turkish Angora is a small to medium-sized cat with a graceful, elegant style. They are long, slender having a muscular body with long legs and tail. The head is a smooth, rather pointed wedge with large, striking ears and eyes. Although the Turkish zoos only breed white, American breeders realized that that is a bad practice resulting in occasional deafness in the blue-eyed or odd-eyed whites. A deaf, white cat is still a fabulous pet, as they do not use language and do not miss the sounds that they have never heard. It is extremely hard to tell if a cat is deaf, as they compensate for their hearing lack so well with their other faculties.The Turkish Angora is accepted in all colors for show, except pointed or colors indicating hybridization with pointed cats. Cat lovers are learning the beauty and excitement of this wonderful breed in all its many colors now available!!!.
