History [ edit ]

The Anatolian cat, also known as Turkish Shorthair, is a unique natural breed that originated in Turkey (Anatolia) where it is called Anadolu Kedisi, meaning Anatolian cat. Anatolians are similar in type to the Turkish Van. Today this breed is spread through many Turkish regions and is exported to Europe and USA. Regrettably, despite their unique characteristics, many Anatolian cats have been exported and registered as Vans or Angoras but some German and Dutch breeders are making great efforts to preserve the breed. The Anatolian cats are known for their jump strength and striking love of water.
