Turkish Van Cat
Drawing of a Turkish Van Cat with dimensions for typical length and height

The Turkish Van is a rare and ancient breed of cat that developed in central and southwest Asia and brought to England. This semi-long-haired breed is known for its van-patterned coat as the name suggests. The van pattern is where color is designated to the head and tail of the cat, leaving the rest of its body white. The Turkish Van cat has not only a unique coat, but also a coat that is water repellent and similar in feel to cashmere or rabbit fur. Considered one of the larger cat breeds, the Turkish Van has substantial strength paired with high energy.

The typical Turkish Van Cat has an overall height of 9”-11" (23-28 cm) and body length of 14”-17” (36-43 cm). An average Turkish Van Cat weighs between 7-18 lb (3.2-8.2 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 12-18 years.

The Singapura cat is a natural breed originating from Singapore and once was used as a tourism mascot for the country. Known to be one of the smallest breeds of cats, female adults can weigh as little as four pounds (up to eight for male). The Singapura cat is relatively stocky, short-haired, and well-muscled. It only comes in one color: a ticked beige coat pattern, and is distinguishable by its pointed ears and large eyes. Although this cat may be soft spoken and small in size, it is known to be very extroverted and maintain its kitten-like playful attitude into adulthood.

The typical Singapura has an overall height of 6”-8” (15-20 cm) and body length of 9”-12” (23-30 cm). An average Singapura weighs between 4-8 lb (1.8-3.6 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 11-15 years.
