Here is another quiz about a purebred cat; this time the Turkish Van. This is an interesting cat breed mainly because of its long history in Turkey, the country of its origin. It originates from the area of Lake Van. It’s origins are the source of some of the questions. The Turkish Angora is another interesting breed from the same country. They are linked in my view and indeed may be the same original cat, separated by selective breeding in the West over a long time by American and European breeders.
Of course, the Turkish Van is a moggy (non-purebred in the terms of the Western cat fancy) in Turkey but nonetheless still a pure cat. In fact the Turkish Van moggies of Turkey are more purebred than the purebred, pedigree Turkish Van cats in the West, in my view. This is because selective breeding gradually draws a purebred cat away from their origins so you end up with very little connection with the past.
The quiz is primarily if not exclusively a true or false quiz so there are simply two possible answers, one of which is correct, rather than a long list of alternative answers. This should speed up the quiz but the questions are quite tricky, at least some of them. Enjoy. If you get 100% you’ve done well.
