Widgen is 20 pounds and not heavy, long angora type fur, never matts.
A van is a cat that is mostly white with only color on it's head and tail (small spots of body color are tolerated, but not in the rings). So it's not exactly a color, but a pattern, like mitted or tuxedo. But it kinda is 'cuz it's a mostly white cat... And although it isnt a breed in itself, there is a semi-long-haired breed called Turkish Van that has this characteristic and their coats have been said to feel "cashmere-like"!
I wish I lived closer!!!! Although
