My husband brought home a stray kitten, we call her Calypso, and it looks to me an aweful lot like a turkish van. I'm fully aware of the low probability of this but I just watched something on animal planet about a family who found a stray havanna brown (an equally rare breed). Is there an expert out there who can tell me what breed(s)this adorable domestic long-hair has in her? Her eyes are gold-green if that helps.

I have found picture of turkish van calico and angora that look like her mom and her. She is long haired and looks a lot like your kitten, and her mom was short hair. Daddy was long hair from what my husband said he was a angora. I would like to know this as well she may be mix but it she is mix with particular breeds. Her feature are distinctive.

I know it isn't a certified cat breed, but it looks to me as a hybrid, a mix between a Turkish Van and a Calico.

Turkish Van!

Your cat looks an awful lot like a Turkish Van. I found my cat at a pet store for free when she was a kitten because she was part of an unwanted litter. I just realized after doing some research that she has to be a Turkish Van or at least a major part Turkish Van. There is also another stray cat that hangs out around where I work that looks just like her and just like a Turkish Van (maybe her dad??)so they can't be THAT rare. Does she like water? My cat loves to splash around in her water bowl and I never knew why until now! We can hardly get the bowl down before she splashes it all over herself.
