The place for pets, and their owners

The Turkish Van…or Stanley on steroids


As promised, Nasty 1 from the brother blog sent me photos of his cat, VJ (whence the name Nasty?), a Turkish Van. This is a new breed to me, but I’ll tell you, they look really cool, and having done some online research, VJ is an good-looking member of his breed!
And Nasty 1 was right, this fella is a big boy. He looks very similar to Stanley, but about 4 times the size. I give you VJ, the Turkish Van, who apparently rules the house. Hey Nasty, tell us some more….IMG00041-20091021-2203IMG00043-20091021-2204IMG00042-20091021-2204IMG00040-20091021-2203

Finally, his face…IMG00036-20091021-2125IMG00038-20091021-2125IMG00039-20091021-2125-1

Excellent Nasty 1. Thanks so much! If anyone is interested, you can learn all about Turkish Vans here.

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.
