Turkish Angora: The beautiful Silky Cat

Turkish Angora: The beautiful Silky Cat 1

Turkish Angora had made a welcome comeback when once thought to be gone forever. Since 1916, the Turkish Angora has been kept at the Ankara Zoo as a part of their natural breeding program.

The Turkish Angora Cat has been described as being a medium-sized, long-haired, medium-furred, grayish-white feline, but is commonly referred to as simply the Angora. The Angora is an indigenous breed, not artificially man-made, and has existed in Turkey since at least the 15th Century.

Angoras range from white to blue eyes, green, amber, yellow, or heterochromatic (e.g., one blue and one amber or green) with some being much lighter in color than others.

Turkish Angora

The Turkish Angora is typically thought of as being white cats with brown or green or blue eyes, although they can be found in other colors. They also vary greatly in their patterns, from tabby to tortoiseshell and, occasionally, calico. They are typically a medium to a large-sized cat, which is quite adaptable to captivity. The cat’s coat is short and dense. It is fairly resistant to dander but will shed more frequently than other types of cat.

The most common markings on the Turkish Angora Cat are a dense black furring, black spots, a light border that extends from the eye over the entire body, and dark spots on the legs, tail, and ears. The hair ring is the only distinctive marking that is seen on the Turkish Angora Cat. Their tails are straight, tapering toward the tip, which is unusual for felines. The tip of the tail can become black at times, and some Angora has brown tail tips, as well.

Turkish Angora

The Turkish Angora is a very strong-willed and independent feline, which needs daily walks and exercise, especially if he is not house trained. While this cat does not get along with other breeds, he does well with other types of cats, including the Persian and the Siamese, and with other dogs. he/she also enjoys humans and is quite social. This breed tends to be territorial, but it is a friendly breed and does well with other pets and families.

The first Turkish Angora arrived in the US in 1963. They were bred with other wild animals such as wolves, coyotes, and foxes. Eventually, the animals became tame and were introduced into the public’s eye. Today, the wild Turkish Angora can be seen around parks and in the streets of major cities in America.

The Anatolian Wild Cat was believed to be the origin of the Turkish Angora. Some believed the two were part of the same subspecies, but their exact relationship was never resolved. While there are some differences between the two, both remain wild cats. A few have even been bred into domestic cat form. No one is sure of their breeding history or how they arrived in America.

While it may seem like a relatively simple question, there is an essential thing to understand. As mentioned before, the Anatolian Wild Cat was a pure breed. While these animals have bred with domestic cats over the years, the two are still different animals.
The difference between these two different breeds is quite significant. In addition to being purebred, they are also more temperamentally and physically sound than most domestic cats. This means that they tend to be more likely to become housebroken.

Personality

Turkish Angora

Some personality traits of this breed include being extremely affectionate toward his/her owners and showing affection by scratching the neck or head of the person or pet to whom he/she is assigned. However, this affectionate nature does not mean that this type of cat cannot be aggressive. In fact, they can become quite defensive if there are humans around when the cat becomes confused or if there are unfamiliar people.

The personality of an Angora cat is different from one-Angora cat to another, depending on the individual and the type of owner and how they have been raised.

If a certain cat has been mistreated or abused, it’s personality can change dramatically, and may even display aggression towards another cat or persons. On the other hand, some Angoras seem to do well with a particular type of cat and do not exhibit aggression toward other breeds. A lot of personality traits are controlled by the owner, including exercise, food, health, and grooming habits.

Because this breed has a long history, they are somewhat rare, but you can get a Turkish Angora cat from many places around the world. They are not the same breed as the long-haired Asian Angora, so check out some of these websites before making your decision. These cats are sometimes sold as “American” because of their relatively short hair.
