Duchess – Turkish Van Kitten – 5 wks old & 8 wks old

This is my adorable kitten named Duchess playing with her feather toy. Her breed is Turkish Van. In the pictures she is 5 weeks old (the toy mouse next to her is 3 inches long and she weighs about 6 ounces). Then, she is shown at 8 weeks old (on 6 Dec 2008) being very playful and active in the video. For more info on the Turkish Van breed google it &/or go to: www.turkishvancat.org http (search: Turkish Van Cat) cats.about.com (search Classic Turkish Van Cat Association) cats.about.com (search Turkish Cat Society) For a complete picture gallery of classic Turkish Vans from birth to 13 weeks old go to sevimli-hayvan.com Other Info: – Turkish Angoras (western) are all white and less muscular than the Turkish Vans. – Classic Turkish Vans (eastern) are white bodied with auburn markings on the head and tail and can also have various colored spots on their bodies (show quality is usually up to 3 spots only) – Turkish Vans can also be white bodied with black markings and spots — or a mixture of black/auburn – Turkish Vans can have markings that encompass the entire head or typically two top head markings along with variable to no body markings and still both be Turkish Vans. – Turkish Vans originally came from Lake Van in Turkey (it is noted that they may be Kurdish/Armenian), then they were bred in Britain/Europe/UK, and now they are bred in America. – Turkish Vans are known for their love of water and are also called “swimming cats”. – It is now illegal to take any Turkish
