Har fundet den først standard på den tyrkiske van.
"The Observer's Book of CATS"

There are numberless cats in Turkey, of many Colours, and with all lengths of fur. Bearing in mind the fact that one of the old names for longhaired cats was the “Angora” or “Ankara” cat, it is interesting to note that is one particular variety in Turkey today, which has an all white coat and green eye and one blue, known as the “ Ankara” cat. All white Angoras are now being breed in North America.
Another variety has a prolific long white coat, with a most distinctive auburn-coloured tail, ringed in light and dark shades. The head also bears auburn markings. The amber eyes are very large and lustrous and the nose, ears and pads are of shell pink. Although it is commonly supposed that cats dislike water, these even when young kittens, enjoy swimming both in fast-running streams and still water. Several pairs were imported into Britain and proved to breed absolutely true, so a standard are now several breeders exhibiting them at the shows.

Jeg håber at vi kan bevare den tyrkisk van som den er og den ikke skal laves om som så mange andre racer. Der findes ikke mange opdrætter af den tyrkiske van i FIFe hvereken i Europa eller uden for. Så vores standard bør følge de klubber uden for FIFe hvor vi købervores nye linier til avl hjem fra.
