I've been a cat lover ever since I was a TINY girl. Grew up and got dogs and showdogs at that...but NEVER without a cat (for more than a few days)...now that I have my first kitten in sixteen years I remember how funny and wonderful young, active cats are and why I love them so much (the dogs are great, but my god cats keep you LAUGHING!!! May be even BETTER for the blood pressure even!). So a very long time ago I used to say that I'd some day get a purebred cat. I used to mention Abyssinians for one........I had a "fake" Maine Coon as a teenager..my big, sweet Freddy boy..........and I find myself attracted to Vans...I remember loving a picture of Van kittens in a book about 25 years (or more) ago. I've been googling Maine Coon and Turkish Van for days and revelling in kitten and cat pictures and devouring as much info as I can. THEN I remembered the Turkish Angora...and saying I wanted one..probably when I was only a teen. Been googling them like crazy! So it is between these three breeds for me. And.....I can't do it any time REAL soon Just got my Gigi DSH kitty and have the show dogs of course. Don't want to overextend myself, but I am JONESING for a Turkey!!! Anybody here show Turks, either Van or Angora? Know anything about them? also still love Maine Coons....still down to those three but almost convinced I want a TA colored.......................
