Last year when I came here to visit my granddaughter, she was all interested in Turkish van cats. She read about how they like to swim.


During the year her family adopted two cats at the local shelter. One is a black cat and one is a mixed tabby. The mixed tabby came to the shelter as a stray when he was 5 months old. They named the tabby Blitz.


This year my granddaughter was still talking about Turkish van cats so I Googled them.


I started to wonder what was going to happen when she started talking about getting a third cat.


Her mother noticed that the on line photos of Turkish van cats looked just like Blitz.


So yesterday as an experiment they bathed Blitz.


He purred!


He likes the water and they are getting a pool. Turkish van cats are under the category mixed tabby. It seems he is a Turkish can mix.


Did you ever find that you already have what you are wishing for?


PS I’m still traveling. XD

    love the “already have what you are wishing for” idea…SO true with my children…we are looking into getting a cat and i keep idealizing the perfect breed or perfect temperaments and i think this cat will find its way into our life through a shelter or someone needing a home for their cat…had never heard of this breed before…neat story!
