Turkish Angoras

 We no longer breed Turkish Angoras but we have kept our wonderful Marvin de la Perle d'Antalya, neutered


Turkish angora origins from frontier beetween Persia and Turkey, around Van. It was introduced in Europe during XVIIth century where it was most appreciated. During XVIIIth, it was considered as a royal gift. It conquiered all the world. Then it was used to create longhaired breeds, as Persan.Then, it was forgotten and almost disapeared from Europe during XIXth century. During XXth century, Ankara zoo programmed to save this breed. Legend tells it was so rare that exportation was sentenced to death for a native, to life emprisonment for foreign people! In 1959, an american woman, Mrs Charles Weed discovered it in Ankara zoo and introduced it in the United States.


Its silky semi-longhaired coat and its extraordinary temperament make this cat an exceptional one. Its is traditionnaly white with blue, gold, amber or odd eyes. All colors also exist. Its favorite place is around your neck.
