3. Turkish Angora
Originating from Turkey, the Turkish Angora has been recorded as being around since the early 17th century. It’s believed that these cats are the origin of the mutation of long hair and the white color pattern in cats.
Owners of a Turkish Angora know just how much these cats love attention and it’s recommended that these cats be left alone for no more than 4 to 8 hours a day. That being said, these cats act well around people and their life expectancy is anywhere from around 15 to 18 years. These social and intelligent creatures are also known for having heterochromia, a mutation that gives them two different eye colors.
