Turkish Angora Family

The Turkish Angora should be provided with adequate perches and cat trees. The coat needs to be brushed every day. But lacking of the undercoat, the coat is relatively easy to care for as it generally does not knot or tangle.


Turkish Angora Cat

The Turkish Angora is believed to have originated with the Tartars in the Ankara region of central Turkey centuries ago. Turkish Angoras are exceptionally intelligent and athletic and welcome challenges. They are curious and thrive on learning commands and tricks.
