I'm new

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm new to this forum and to owning a kitty. I adpoted Jessie from Castaway Critters and they told me she might be a Turkish Van. Does anyone know anything about that breed you could share with me? Jessie is 8 months old, all white with a black/ smokey spot on her head. My aunt has had cats since before i can remember, so I've been around cats my whole life. I've never seen anything like Jessie.

Welcome!! Vans are beautiful! They generally just have color on their heads and tails. I had a foster once that I believed to have some Van blood, his coat was incredibly soft, like cashmere as the breed discription says, and he had the coloration. I"ve never felt another coat like his.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of Jessie! (Lol, that's my name too)

I will post some when I get home.

I checked out the link you provided. Jessie is not quite as furry as the cats pictured, but her fur does feel as soft as cashmere.
