History and Origins

The Turkish Angora is one of the oldest natural cat breeds, originating from the Ankara region in Turkey. Esteemed for its elegance and luxurious white coat, the breed has a storied history that dates back to the 15th century. Initially prized in its native land for its beauty and grace, the Turkish Angora became a symbol of nobility and refinement across Europe. The breed nearly faced extinction in the 20th century but was revitalized through dedicated breeding programs. Today, the Turkish Angora is celebrated worldwide, not just for its striking appearance but also for its rich heritage.

Personality

Turkish Angora cats are renowned for their vibrant, outgoing personalities. They are highly intelligent, curious, and enjoy being the center of attention, often performing antics to delight their human companions. Despite their aristocratic appearance, Angoras are playful and adventurous, showing affection openly and forming strong bonds with their families. They are sociable creatures that do well with children and other pets, making them excellent family companions. Their vocal nature allows them to communicate their needs and desires clearly.

Nutrition and Feeding

A balanced diet is crucial for the health of a Turkish Angora. High-quality cat food that provides a mix of proteins, vitamins, and minerals will support their active lifestyle and maintain their sleek physique. It's important to monitor their food intake to prevent overeating, as obesity can lead to health issues. Fresh, clean water should be available at all times. Consulting with a veterinarian can help tailor a nutrition plan specific to your cat's needs, taking into account age, weight, and activity level.

Grooming and Care

The Turkish Angora's silky coat requires regular grooming to maintain its luster and prevent mats. Weekly brushing is typically sufficient to keep their fur in excellent condition, although more frequent grooming may be necessary during shedding seasons. Their ears should be checked and cleaned regularly to prevent wax build-up, and nail trimming is also important. Despite their long fur, Turkish Angoras are relatively low maintenance compared to other long-haired breeds.

Specific Needs

While Turkish Angoras are generally healthy, they are predisposed to certain genetic conditions, including deafness, particularly in white-coated individuals with blue eyes. Regular veterinary check-ups are essential to catch any health concerns early. They are also known for their love of high places, so providing safe climbing opportunities will help satisfy their natural instincts and keep them entertained.

Training

Turkish Angoras are receptive to training due to their intelligence and desire to interact with their human companions. They can be taught to perform tricks, use a scratching post, and even walk on a leash with the right encouragement and patience. Early socialization is beneficial for their development, exposing them to various people, environments, and experiences to help them grow into well-adjusted adults.

Need to Know

Prospective Turkish Angora cat owners should be aware of the breed's energetic and affectionate nature. They thrive on attention and companionship, making them ideal for families and individuals alike. Understanding their grooming needs, health predispositions, and providing them with a stimulating environment are key to their well-being. With proper care and love, the Turkish Angora can be a joyful and loyal addition to any home, offering years of companionship and delight.

Adopting our new kitten from Purebred Kitties was a wonderful experience. The process was smooth and clear, leaving no room for confusion. Alona's kindness and genuine care shone through as she promptly answered all my questions. Thanks to the whole team, our new furry family member is now home and already cherished beyond words!

Purebredkitties has been absolutely wonderful. They made everything so easy and stress-free. Adoption specialist Kim A was fantastic, always going the extra mile to help me. She even responded to my email at 3 am her time! 😊 This whole experience has been truly heartwarming and rewarding.

Our experience with Purebredkitties was wonderful! Communication was great, and we even got to FaceTime with our kitten before bringing her home. She was exactly as we expected and is already doing great with our family after just two days. One small note is that pedigree papers weren't included and cost extra, which was a bit pricey since she arrived spayed. Overall, even though it was expensive, it was worth it. The quality and size of our kitten are amazing!

The whole experience of adopting a pet with this fantastic team has been nothing short of wonderful. Now, I have the joy of being a devoted pet mom to a gorgeous kitten I named Princess. I'm already looking forward to adopting another fur baby with Maria's help in the future. I'm absolutely thrilled and can't thank you all enough!

Proud mom of four Sphynx kitties! I adopted all of my adorable feline friends from Maria at purebredkitties.com, and I couldn’t be happier. Each one is a treasure, and working with Maria has been an absolute delight!

The whole journey to bring our fluffy bundle of joy home was fantastic. Maria is incredibly kind and always ready to answer all our questions. I really appreciate how seriously they take the health of the cats. Our kitten arrived with a minor case of the sniffles, likely from the airport travel, but it was easily and quickly resolved. Plus, the video call we had to meet our little guy beforehand was a wonderful way to get a glimpse of his personality and feel confident in our decision. I'm definitely recommending Purebred Kitties to all my friends who are looking to get their own Maine Coon.

I recently welcomed my second Sphynx from Purebred Kitties, and just like my first experience, everything went perfectly. This time around was just as smooth and delightful. I adore both of my cats—they're healthy, have amazing personalities, and are absolutely precious.
