This breed of cat is originally from Ankara, Turkey, where white copies, known as Anakar Kedi, are revered as a symbol of purity. It is a very ancient race, as it is aware of her existence since Byzantine times. The importance of these animals in Turkey is such that there is a legend that the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, when he returns to the world of the living, he will reincarnate in a Turkish Angora.
This cat has a small to medium size and is characterized by its elegance and agility. His body is lean and muscular, pointed ears and their eyes are large and oval, and we can find in any color and even disparate.
His coat is medium length, well known and woolly and can form a collar around the neck of adult males. The coat color may vary, but certainly the most appreciated is white. We can also find them with fur in shades of chocolate, lilac, fawn and cinnamon.
It is a very temperamental cat, but also knows how to be docile and affectionate, especially with children. It is very independent and intelligent, and likes to play, especially with small balls that can travel with the entire surface of the house where he resides. With a little patience we can train it to return the balls thrown at him, just as you would a dog.
The house will surely find it uploaded to the most unlikely places, and she loves climbing the most inaccessible places, but not to worry, because it has a special ability to overcome all kinds of objects and obstacles, so that our objects run no danger.
Probably not what you’ve ever seen, because if your cat is healthy will not be visible, but cats as well as the eyelids that open and close, have a third eyelid, called the nictitating membrane whose primary function is to protect the animal’s eyes.
This third eyelid is a membrane that is located on the corner of the eye, and has a gland that allows the cat’s eye is always well lubricated. As we said, not usually visible, and is usually the one who controls your state veterinarian when you press gently on the cat eye, at which time it becomes visible in the corner of the eye.
The main functions of the third eyelid is also lubricate the eye, protect it from external aggression and help remove foreign bodies that may have been introduced into the animal’s eye.
When the third eyelid is visible, it means that your cat has an eye problem such as an ulcer, inflammation or injury. This is because, in these cases, external eyelids tighten and cause the appearance of the eyelid that covers the eye partially or totally, to allow healing and prevent it from getting worse.

In Thailand, Sriracha Zoo, a tiger was pregnant, but it went wrong, and gave birth to three little tigers premature very low birth weight. A few days after Mom died and were no longer the same. Several veterinarians examined, all agreed that he had the tiger was depressed because of bad pregnancy and subsequent death of her cubs.
But were not the appropriate remedy to cure the depression of the tiger. From that moment began a campaign to find a tiger cub, so she helped raise him and out of depression. It began with the contacts to different parts, but nowhere had a small breeding available for the tiger.
There were so many contacts and meetings to resolve the problem; someone suggested the idea, surrogate mothers. We have seen mothers who raise animals of other species. After having the consensus on the issue had to be found to foster children, which is anything like their children. But another problem arose; they found no puppy of that age like small tigers.
The only thing you could get was five piglets, but had another problem to overcome, not look like their children. In piglets, we produced a garment similar to the skin of the tiger and the tiger was so accepted them as true sons. Look at the pictures, words no longer needed.
Like people, dogs and cats have an immune system that is always tested against external threats. For this reason it is necessary to apply appropriate immunizations from a very small, so you do not have to deal with serious problems.
At this point there is again a very important similarity with what happens to people. Both dogs and cats have a special vaccination schedule to be followed to the letter.
