The Turkish Van cat, a natural breed that originates from the Middle East, is known for its unique pattern.

The breed got its name from its distinctive pattern which involves a colored head and some tail markings.

Solidly built, this semi-long-haired cat has a very powerful body and takes up a full 3 to 5 years to reach full maturity, according to online pet adoption website Petfinder.

Playful and extremely active, this cat can usually be found in Iran, Iraq, and eastern Turkey, according to the CFA. Around 100 of them are born in the US each year, making it one of the rarest cat breeds in the world today.
