Van breed has lived in the vicinity of the city of Van (Turkey) for centuries. It is a breed that likes the water, We have seen many of them swimming in the Lake Van. It has a reputation for being a terrible pet to have at home. He is smart and friendly, but also a friend of broken household items, of maullar frequently and feel jealous of any other animal that side by side. In addition, given the scarcity of the race, few veterinarians are encouraged to sterilize them or castrate them.

Its most notable feature is their almond-shaped eyes genetics, often they are each a colour. The most valued members, in general, they have an eye for color ámbar-verde and another blue. They tend to have a genetic tendency to deafness, like any other breed of white cats and domestic dogs.

To increase the population of Van breed, the local Government of Van instituted a program that paid to residents the equivalent to 200,00 $ per month to keep a cat breed. This program was completed by suspending.

Outside Turkey, Van Kedi can be recognized as a variant of the Turkish Van instead of a different race color.



This race, the only member of the Group of Asian long-haired, Persian chinchilla of the Baroness Miranda Von Kirchberg dates back to the same mating of the cat and the Burmese. The longest hair did not appear in the first generation, but later.
The only tifTanie is recognized in Great Britain. The FIEe is the burmilla, in the Group of Asian Britain, and in North America has become confused with the Chantilly/Tífany. In Australia there is also a breeding program of the tiffanie.

The tiffanie inherited their aspect of the Burmese, and his spectacular coat of the Persian chinchilla. It is not as long or as thick as a Persian, so it is much easier to care for. It also has a silky necklace and plumed tail. It is not as expressive as the Burmese or as quiet as the Persian, why owners and their breeders consider it more balanced and perfect long-haired cat.

Tennessee Rex

The Rex Tennessee is a natural mutation that spontaneously appeared in the Tennessee Valley in the summer of 2004.
Cats are covered from birth with a coat of curly hair, a very soft consistency. Curly hair is more prominent in the neck, shoulders, chest, legs and tail.
Skin shines in the light with a rich satin appearance which intensifies the colour of the fur. The glossy side believes that it is an expression of the mutation of Tennessee Rex on the stem of the hair, along with curly hair. The glossy effect is due to “air bags” the stem of the hair. The hair seems to be more fragile in the hind legs, until it disappears completely in the area. In general the cats do not appear to have the tendency to baldness seen in some of the other rex mutations.

The Rex Tennessee is a medium to large cat, with a type of semi-cobby body and a short, thick neck. The ears are medium-sized to moderately large tipped slightly rounded and broad at the base. The eyes are round and large almond-shaped to sleep when it is warning. The eyes may be of different colours. The nose should be straight and without relief. The chest is filled with hair completely Rexed, extending from the chest to the stomach. The torso is great, long, rectangular, but not thin, very curly from the base of the ears and wavy hair towards the hips. The body is muscular and athletic. The legs are in proportion to the body, large, round, totally Rexed. The tail is of three-quarters of the entire body and completely Rexed.

The temperament of the T-rex is friendly and affectionate. His appearance is that of a healthy cat, strong and solid, with a unique and peculiar coat.

Turkish van

The range is a range that appeared natural and isolation in the mountainous area of Lake Van, to the East of Turkey, where it has been documented for centuries. It became known abroad when two specimens were brought to Great Britain, in 1955. North America did not arrive until the Decade of 1970. In Great Britain, the entirely white variety, the Turkish vankedisi, also sometimes called van kedi, It has increased its recognition thanks to the CGGF, but it is still virtually unknown in North America.

The impressive pattern of the fur of the cat, that just color in the ears and tail, known simply as van. Their strict standards of color extends to the eyes, It must be amber, Blue or one of each color, This being the classic look of this race. Although it is elegant, silky hair and sweet expression, the van is not a cuddlier cat, but an active and independent cat, famous in his homeland for his ability to fish and swim.

Can reach a meter in length from the snout to the tip of the tail.

This equivalent to the Burmese short hair cat created a New Zealand nurturer, June Mateer. His first crossing of a Burmese and a Oriental short hair striped cinnamon created a dotted seal pup, showed that the East had the recessive gene for the dotted. The dominant feature of short hair Introcujo, He returned to cross to the Burmese to create desired shape and pattern. This race bragged. j, provisionally called Burmese short-haired, It was recognized by the registry CATZ Inc of New Zealand in the 2001 with the name of Templecat other records still do not accept it.


One of the most popular breeds in North America, the Tonquinés is a hybrid of the Siamese and the American Burmese. These hybrids have existed to produce two mutations in tips, and it may reveal, in fact, the true identity of the 'chocolate Siamese"documented in the Decade of 1880.

Now recognized as the founder of the burmesa race, Wong Mau, was Tonquinés, because he produced two patterns of fur kittens. However, until the Decade of 1950 breeders did not begin to work to create and refine hybrids.

The race was developed and was acknowledged for the first time in Canada, and today it is accepted by major records on both sides of the Atlantic, Although some records still argue if the tonquinés is truly a race. Given that the characteristic coat is a mixture of two genetic patterns, the two genes are present in all tonquineses cats, and all mating may produce the Siamese pattern or Burmese cats. But this is not the only race that produces variants, the debate is more a matter of degree than of principle.

The coat of the tonquinés pattern is called mink. Patterns Siamese and burmeses genes are recessive two, and neither dominates the other; Thus, a cat with a copy of each shows this third level of shading to half way between the two. This subtle pattern on a silky fur covers a moderate and balanced complexion, and that is complemented by striking green eye color. Gregarious and friendly fun, the tonquinés has the typical oriental breeds affectionate nature, but it is less noisy than most, and it has a higher than average life expectancy.

It is surprising that this breed healthy and sociable never reached great popularity outside of North America. While in the continent is one of the ten most popular breeds, It is relatively rare in Europe and Australasia.

Most of the owners claim that their cats are very intelligent, and the owners of a tonquinés are not the exception. While there is no evidence that a race is 'smarter' than the other, recognizes that the tonquinés, as the parent breeds, behaves in the manner more extraverted spectrum of feline behavior. One consequence of this is that the tonquinés is favored by families who want their cats are like a dog as far as possible.

The toyger is a creation of Judy Sugden. At the end of the Decade of 1980 began to use their Bengali, along with a domestic cat striped mackerel and a cat of the India, to create a tiger in miniature. The cat who created, originally called California toyger, It has been exported to Britain and Australia, and it seems to have potential for one greater acceptance.

In the standard of breed, lodas parts of the toyger, from the nose to the tail, they are described as "muscular". The short coat, thick, Orange has a brightness of «destello», as the Bengali, and the striking striped pattern lacks the curved lines and the dorsal stripe striped mackerel. The toyger is still a race underway and should gradually seem increasingly to Tiger aspect.

As to the nature, the toy-gers should be gregarious, but relaxed, intelligent and adiestrables.
