Pictures of my new brood!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I mentioned a while back that I would soon begin breeding Turkish Vans Well, I've now got my foundation cats straight from Istanbul Introducting. . .

Patik


Patik is a brown-tabby male. He's 1 year, 8 months. He's a nice boy, terribly virile, and does not spray (lets hope he stays that way). He's got a kink at the bottom of his tail from an accident as a kitten, so he'll never show, but he makes lovely kittens.

Sabre

She is one of Patik's kittens, 7 months of age. She's also a brown-tabby. She has the softest coat and is very lean and muscular.

Fistik

This brown-patched tabby and her 2 month old brother red-tabby, Afacan, will be going to our Breed Council Secretary. They are also out of Patik. I'd have a photo for Afacan, but he's so lively, I can't get him to stay still. . .

Minnosh

She's a tortie and white, not at all related to Patik & crew. She's got great type, I'm very excited about her.

I am IN LOVE with Minnosh that girl has stunning type - Is she from Turkey as well. You cats are lovely but I love your stud and Minnosh. Minnosh also has incredible markings, boning, facial structure and eye placement from what I have learned of the breed.

Gorgeous, I remember you saying that you were looking into the more unusual colourings, and certainly here in the UK I haven't seen many tabby Vans! Congratulations, your crew look wonderful and I wish you every success!

Yes, Minnosh is also from Turkey You're spot on about her boning, facial structure, and eyes. She's also as sweet as can be and has a coat like cashmere. I think Patik is already in love with her, he's been calling her name ever since he accidentally met her!!

Thats very cool. How hard was it to bring them out of Turkey. I know the TA have a difficult time with the whites and the colors even come with lots of paperwork. I work with Siberians and sometimes getting cats from breeders in Russia who are isolated is a lot of work and lots of money, but well worth it.

Please do share pictures of their kittens when they come about in the future - Will be curious to see their type and development. Do they like water and will you be showing in the NY area with them - I will be in NY in June/July timeframe to visit some friends.

Funny you should ask about taking them out of the country It was quite an adventure, I'll PM you with the details

I'm in region 7, but often head up into region 1 as well. I might be in NY, just depending on the show I'll look at the CFA schedual and see what's going on during June/July.

I'd love to hear the details too, actually. My boyfriend is from Turkey and half-jokingly has offered to bring me back a kitten someday, but I imagine it would be much easier for him to get me a Turkish moggie than anything with any sort of pedigree.

Your cats are beautiful, by the way. Almost made me wonder if I should have gone for a Van instead of an Angora, but I love my dainty little boy.
