Meet The Turkish Van “The Swimming Cat”

The Turkish Van

If you hear someone bragging about their Turkish Van, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were talking about an imported car. However, the Turkish Van is not a car but a rare breed of cat.  This rare cat has a one-of-a-kind coat. While most cats have coats consisting of three hair types, the Turkish Van prefers a coat of one hair type, with no undercoat. This makes her fur cashmere-like in both texture and looks. Plus, it’s water-resistant, which works out fantastically since they are also known as the “swimming cat”.  This cat not only loves to go out for a cool dip but also loves playing in the water.
