|Oh boy, do Turkish Vans EVER like water! Mine likes to hop up into the sink when the water is running, just so he can splash around a bit! Same with his drinking fountain. . . Toilets and showers are also fascinating places. We're getting him a wading pool this summer and will eventually landscape a small pond in the back yard for him.
Our Egyptian Mau also likes water a lot. We're convinced the Van taught him! Bailey likes to take his toys, drop them in the water bowl, and then fish them out again!
Haha, my cats also like to fish things out of their water bowl. But my Turkish van HATES water. When I bath her, she is very scared, but donâ€™t cry, and when she gets out she goes nutz hissing at herself. I canâ€™t get caught in the line of fire, but I never put her in water until she was a year and a half. But when chokabo is drinking from a bowl she knees the floor as if she is nursing, I think the longer a Turkish van is bred outside turkey they lose that water love.
But my Turkish angora as a kitten was really cute, I would take a shower and she would come in at one side and run across and jump out the other. It was a strange game and she stopped doing it, now she hates water. I think itâ€™s only if they are hot they like to play in water.
