The Turkish Van likes playing with water and is the only cat known to swim of their own free will.
While loyal, loving and affectionate, the Turkish Van is highly intelligent and highly active. They need plenty of exercise which can come from exploring outdoors or playing with interactive cat toys.
Turkish Vans are not recommended for families with very young children, as they are muscular and often stand on their back feet when challenged and tend to play quite roughly.
