im a cat lover... WITH NO CAT!!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
most forum type places i have gone to totaly ignore these "new member" posts but I may as well drop one because i come to these forums with a specific goal.

I grew up with a large very smart cat that had the interesting traits of never liming trees and going out of his way to fight dogs. (there was some wild blood in this cat I guess)

that was many years ago and lately i have been finding a yerning for a new cat companion. I currently live and work in korea so I started looking up differnt kinds of cats and a few specific traits have cought my eye and I am looking for a cat with these traits so that i can try and get one next time I come to the states to live or visit.

specificly i have been reading about savvana cats (serval/domestic mix) and Turkish Vans. the traits that interest me the most are their inteligence; they learn games like fetch, affection; people oriented enough to stick with their owner on walks or relaxing outside, and since i like to swim and go fishing I would like a cat that enjoys such activity also.

mostly i am here to learn about how and where i can get one of these breeds or a differnt breed with similar traits (if any other exist) and also simply because i like cats and have been lurking for a bit and love the tales that some of you spin.

Welcome aboard! We care for a couple of Turkish Vans (you do not "own" Turkish Vans, you "care for" them, if you are fortunate enough for them to share your home with you). Your posting describes them quite well. You can find breeders all over the world, and they travel all over the world for breeding purposes. Here is a place to start if you wish to locate and/or chat with breeders of the Turkish Van.

If we can tell you more about the Turkish Van, or if you would like to see some photos of our lot, just drop us a private message or e-mail - your choice.

Nice hearing from you, and we really do like to talk about the Turkish Van - a truly marvelous breed.

Ann & Jim, on a Texas beach. along with Samwise and Molly.

Welcome to TCS! Until you find your own cat (or two), TCS is an absolutely wonderful place to vicariously enjoy cat-parenthood (I don't think the word "ownership" quite fits) I look foward to seeing you in the forums!
