Ivan's Story...
2-5 yo Male Red & White Turkish Van

This sweet guy was an owner surrender. After he was left his owners called and called to check on him. He must have been loved. It would be hard not to love this soft little treasure. In the shelter he was so extremely shy he was unadoptable and in jeopardy. Right now he is a little sad, though he will come out to be petted and loved. He will be happier and blossom in his new home someday.

Turkish Vans are normally very active involved little troublemakers. Very agile they are great jumpers and infinitely playful. They will follow you around the house and help you will all your chores. Known as the "swimming cats" they like water and have been known to take showers with their favorite humans. He is a true Van with the classic patches of red on his head and the marvelous red tail. His fur is medium long, very soft and silky.

Ivan is litterbox perfect, eats wet and dry and seems to be in great health except for the wistful expression in his eyes. He is an unusually tender boy and needs very gentle handling. No homes with rough-housing kids or scary animals. He needs (and will give back) love and love and love. He was surrendered with Emma and she sort of strikes out at him occasionally and clearly dominates him. He is being adopted out separately and may be happier when separated from her. He is being fostered in Santa Cruz, CA. Contact Harriet at (831) 336-2983 or if you have questions, or send an Adoption Application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivan, a Davis Turkish Van cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Turkish Van for sale in Davis, or seeking a Turkish Van cat from a breeder in Davis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Davis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Davis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Turkish Van breeders who help with Turkish Van rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Davis paves the way for another one to be saved.
