A few months ago we got Casper from the local animal shelter. We chose him purely for his personality, and the only history they knew about him was that he was found as a stray. When we first brought him to the vet, she told us that he was actually a breed, called a Turkish Van cat. I looked at some pictures, but they all had coloring on their tail, he only has a little near the base of his tail. Well today we brought him in to get neutered, and the vet called and asked us if we knew who his parents were and who bred him. I said we didn't know. Well, I just thought I would see what you guys thought, here are some pics! https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/16945_img_4830.jpg https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/16945_img_4834.jpg We are going to go pick him up soon, so we'll see what they say.
