|You could be. Turks have high set ears and very wedge shaped faces. We tend to be vocal and "talk back" when our people speak to us. We are VERY curious and intelligent. We like to take inventory of anything our people bring home in a bag. We may throw temper tantrums if we don't get our way by racing around the house and saying "Urrr, urrr, URRRR"! We have a sense of humor and like to pull pranks on our people and the other critters in our homes. We get cold easily because we don't have an undercoat, so we love to curl up in warm spots. We keep tabs on our people by following them around the house and waiting for them at the front door if they leave on an errand. We have very delicate bone structure; we're like Arabian horses or Salukis-very elegant and lightly built.
Not all white cats or all cats with bi-colored eyes are Turkish Angoras. They are actually a fairly rare breed. Only 16 remained in a zoo in Turkey during the 1960's, and we're all decended from those cats.Turks can come in any color or color combination except ticked coats. Turkey no longer allows the export of Turkish Angoras. We are considered sacred cats by the Muslim people because the Prophet Mohammed was said to have kept five white Turks as his companions. We should all be considered sacred, don't you think? ;-)
