turkish van

Standard

ted

hi my peoples

your

t4t

cat for today.

the turkish van

is a rare breed originating in ancient turkey.

i had some pretty old turkey the other day
it was good if a bit chewy.

this cat is big, 10 to 20 pounds, and muscular and strong.
they have powerful legs and can jump really high.

van

they are very active cats
and love to play and run
and they love to be in water.
they are good swimmers.

ok weird

they get along with dogs and people
as long as everyone knows who the boss is.

they are smart cats

they like to be petted but not picked up and held and loved on.

that boss thing again

their fur is semi-long and chalky-white with color only on the head and tail,
although, sometimes they are all white,
and they have wonderful fluffy tails

 short-haired tails are very nice too, you know.

their coat is like cashmere and there is no undercoat
the coat repels water and dirt

they shed a lot in summer but in winter have thick coats
with tufts of hair between their toes.

wonder if that is a problem when in the litter box?
mama hates it when I “track” litter.

scottish fold

Standard

teddypose

hi my peoples!

here is today’s

s4t

cat

it is a scottish fold cat

fold

these kitties are born with straight ears
but around 20 days old the ears
of half of them fold.

they come in all colors and patterns and have long or short hair.
their eyes are round and can be any color but usually copper.
actually everything about this cat is round,
their eyes, heads, and bodies.

they are well padded medium size.

i am bigger than medium but my padding is muscle
i have no idea what has made mama laugh so hard.

these kitties are smart and tend not to be shy.
they don’t hide and like to be around people.

i am not shy either but i don’t like people
so i go to bed when they are around.
there goes mama laughing again

scottish folds like to play in and drink running water.
some eat and drink with their paws.

they are cute but
they do have some strange habits.

newtoy

hi my peoples.

before i got busy with my feather ball
i looked for a

tp

cat

and i found this one

a peterbald

peter

it is often bald like the sphynx
but not as wrinkley.

they are from russia
and have different kinds of coats.

some are hairless and some have peach fuzz
some have downy hair and some wiry kinky hair.
sometimes they will be part bald and part down and part wiry.

sometimes they are bald but have hair on their face and feet.
and some of them have curled or crinkled whiskers.

these are some crazy cats!

their tails are long and skinny
and they have very big ears.

they are smart and loving,
active and athletic.
and they are very curious.

mama would say they are nosey
and get into everything.

i hear this all the time.
like it’s a bad thing!

norwegian forest cat

Standard

teddy

hi my peoples.

i found a big strong

tn

cat

it is a norwegian forest cat

these cats are big sturdy cats

norcat

they have very thick semi-long coats that are
water repellent  and not hard to take care of
since they don’t shed much.

if you lived in scandinavia you wouldn’t shed much either
it is really cold and snowy there.

they traveled with the vikings
being natural hunters they kept the ships
and homes free of rats and other small critters.

this is confusing to me
i thought the vikings traveled mostly on planes
to get to their games.
and they are pretty big and seems to me
they could take of the rats themselves
and not depend on a little cat.

norwegian forest cats are friendly and easy-going
and adapt to different situations with little trouble.
