The variety of cat breeds in recent years, few people will be surprised, but in this regard, some representatives of the tailed kings are becoming undeservedly forgotten. These include the Turkish Angora, a cat that once you meet, you will not be able to look away and remain indifferent to grace and beauty. If such specimens appear at exhibitions, then a huge crowd of admiring spectators gather near their cages, as they simply enchant with their aristocracy and flexibility.
The birthplace of these animals is Ancient Egypt, then, together with ships and merchants, the Turkish Angora, a traveling cat, came to Venice and other countries of the world. The further she found herself from the country of the pharaohs, the more she changed. Once in the mountain villages of Turkey, cats reminded the inhabitants of their fur with goat hair, from which thin, warm threads were spun. And those and other animals were namedAngora, so this species got its name and took root in Ankara (the villages were located exactly at its current location).
It is generally accepted that the real Turkish Angora is a cat that has exclusively white hair. The color of the eyes of this aristocrat has its own meaning, according to legend, the blue-eyed one is able to forgive the sins of those people with whom she lives, the beauty with yellow eyes brings kindness and tranquility to the house. A cat with green eyes promotes peaceful and balanced relationships in the family. The ancient Turks were especially kind to odd-eyed beauties, they were called "Ankara Kadi" and were considered to bring happiness and financial well-being.
Turkish Angora is a cat that rightfully bears royal titles, it used to be a frequent resident of temples. These aristocrats are not pretentious in food, they never meow loudly, they are distinguished by their special cleanliness. The coat of the Angora cat always looks well-groomed, despite the length, frequent combing is not necessary. By the way, it is believed that for a real purebred beauty, her fur must shimmer when walking. For some time, this species was unfairly forgotten, "thanks" to the British Society of Cat Fanciers, who decided to distinguish only the Persian or long-haired breed.
Only after a long period of time, representatives of the aristocratic caste have been reborn and give us the opportunity to enjoy their presence. Turkish Angora is a cat whose photo conveys nobility and laid-back grace. Because for a long timeexclusively white representatives were crossed among themselves, this was expressed in hearing problems. This is probably why, as compensation, Turkish cats have a very strong immune system. The current breeders of the breed do not limit the color of pets, therefore, a variety of colors will be provided to you.
If you want to bring into the house an affectionate, sociable and gentle animal, then the Turkish Angora cat is exactly the contender. These magnificent animals are extremely intelligent and curious, no matter what you do, they will always be watching and being around. Turkish cats are absolutely not afraid of dogs and get along well with other representatives of the animal world, they are refined, able to become an indispensable and devoted friend to their owner.
