History


The exact history of Turkish Angora kittens is unknown but it is believed that this is one of the kitty breeds that evolved in the Turkish mountains. This breed used to be known by the name Ankara Cats (because of the city Ankara, Turkey) and have been sighted for centuries in the Middle East. Turkish Angora cats are one of the longhaired cat breeds that were first brought to Europe during the late 1500s. Turkish Angoras first arrived in the US during the 1700s.

Despite their spread, Turkish Angora kittens were almost destroyed due to crossbreeding with other longhaired kitty breeds. The Turkish government rescued Turkish Angoras in the 1900s by initiating a breeding program that was designed to save the completely white version of the Angora that had been almost lost due to crossbreeding with other cat breeds. They were successful and two Turkish Angora cats were brought to the US causing a resurgence in the breed.

Due to the Turkish breeding program in the 1900s, Turkish Angora kittens are usually all white and usually have blue eyes although one may be blue while the other is amber. Like many kitty breeds, Turkish Angoras do come in other colors as well, although white is the most popular. As this is one of the longhaired cat breeds, Turkish Angora cats have a full, brushy tail and a long, silky coat. Their body is generally lean and long.
