The Turkish Angora is a medium sized breed, originating from the Ankara region of Turkey (formerly known as Angora).
Playful and athletic, the Angora can often be found on a high perch, such as bookcase or shelf, in the home, where it has a prime spot to observe the comings and goings of the household.
They are known for their shimmery white coats, but colouring such as tabby and various smoke shades is not unusual. As it is semi-longhaired, the coat of an Angora does need regular combing to keep it knot free.
Angora cats are easy to train because of their intelligence and desire to interact with humans. They get on well with other pets and children and often pick a specific member of the family to be their constant companion.
Life expectancy: 15-20 years
Originating country: Turkey
Temperament: Intelligent, protective, helpful and playful
Interesting fact: Some of the most prized Angora cats are known as ‘Odd Eyed’, due to their eyes being a different colour (commonly one amber and one blue)
