I adopted Snowhite and Prince Charmin at a local rescue shelter. They are brother and sister and are almost 1yr. old now. They are amazing! They treat my Malteese as one of them. The male has one blue eye and one green. The female has green eyes. I just found out they are Turkish Angora's through reserch. I have owned cats all my life and knew these two were special. I thought it was unusual that they came running to play with the water coming out of the kitchen faucet. They run to the door to greet each guest and have to check out every shopping bag brought into the house. The male is larger then the female and has longer hair so far.They are BEAUTIFUL!!

I wrote towards the end of last month about us losing Snowdrop. Well since then we have taken in 2 Turkish Angoras (Ice and Snow)!!
I think at first my wife hoped they would be just like Snowdrop but its amazing how different in character they are!! They are so funny. We think that they are father and son and let me tell you the son gives the dad a hard time!!
We will also shortly be bringing home a Westhighland Terrier. I am convinced that it was Snowdrops legacy to make us once again a happy home.

Snowdrop came to us as a young cat no more than 6 months old. She turned up on our doorstep. We took her to the local vets and posted signs around our village where she could be found. No one ever claimed Snowdrop and she has been with us for 4 years. During this time she amazed us with her personality and antics - opening lever handles on doors and even partly bathing with my wife!!
Unfortumately she was run over and killed last week. We are all devastated by this loss especially my younger son, Tom and Liz my wife. She was a most loyal and loving companion. We have lost one of the family.

We have a young Maine Coon cat (18 months old) who is such a joy! She gets along beautifully with our two older cats (ages 12 and 9), and has even got them playing and exercising again. While she does not like to be held or sit on laps, she LOVES being petted and is very affectionate. She keeps herself clean and well-groomed at all times, and just knows how beautiful she is. I've never had a Maine Coon before, but would definitely get one again because they have lovely personalities!

We rescued "Kati" from a school yard where she had been dumped as a tiny kitten. In a matter of days, she had taken over our house and our hearts, and has been bullying us for 7 years now. When we ran across the Turkish Angora breed, we recognized her immediately: eyes (bright blue), length and texture of fur, personality. There is no doubt that she belongs to that breed. Being white and adventurous, she would get very dirty as a kitten and so became accustomed to being bathed at an early age and is brushed often also. She has brought a great deal of joy to our lives.

My Turk is about 3 years old and she is the sweetest can ever. She had bright emerald eyes which attracted us to her in the humane society. She is the most cuddly, sweet cat I've ever had. If we don't give her attention when we get home, she gets anxious. I would never give up my Lizzie for anything. I would definitely get another of this breed.

I have a black turkish angora. He weighs about 20 lbs. He is the friendliest cat I ever had. He survived Hurricane Katrina and 5 ft. of water with our other persian. We adopted him from a humane society when he was about 2 years old. He crawls in my arms every night like a baby. Of course, he has to sleep with me too. I wouldn't trade him for anything.

My cat looks exactly like the one in the picture. We call her Musang. She is very playful, active and seeks attention. She likes to hide inside cupboards and sometimes we cannot see her since her fur is like a camouflage. She takes boiled or raw fish daily. She does not like friskies or whiskas. She roams about in the garden and catches mice, cockroaches and even insects like the mosquitoes and flies and keep them in our shoes.

She is recently friendly with a brownish male cat looking a bit like a junior lion which we call Samba. We are very happy with her and love her so much.

I once owned a siamese kitten name Princess. She was mix. She was so cute. She liked to play and chase her tail. She is like a dog; she would carry her toys in her mouth. She ran away and never came back for a whole month. I loved her more than anything. She is very sweet and enjoys sleeping in warm places.

I had the most gorgeous "Blue" Maine Coon, his name was Thomas. I live in South Africa and there is not a lot of these cats around. He was huge, gentle, extremely loving and had the tiniest voice. I unfortunately lost him to poisoning in a spat of such events in the neighbourhood. Nobody is none the wiser about who did it. All I can say is that he was the most wonderful pet anyone can have. He was playful, walked on a leash (believe me, a cat that size causes comments), and was just wonderful. I have been looking for one, but they seem to be rather rare in RSA. I have two other cats, but none so absolutely loveable. It is the best cat to own as they are playful. The only down side was that he had a rather sensitive stomach and certain commercial cat food gave him diarrhea and that is quite a bad thing on a cat with hair that long. He didn't mind bathing much. He didn't scratch or even complain! He was 8 yrs when he died and still played like a little kitten. Thomas is sorely missed. There is no other cat breed like it!
