This is a photo of a Van cat. These cats come from the Lake Van region in eastern Turkey. They have two different colored eyes. This one has a blue eye and a gold eye. I am told they can swim.

Our last night in Istanbul we ate at an open air restaurant. Our meal was interrupted by piercing screams from the other side of the restaurant. One of the diners was terrified of cats and one of them had wandered under her table. The waiters had to stand guard around her table while her meal was boxed up to go. We all had a good laugh about this. Seriously this is not the country to visit if you are afraid of cats. (In the kitty's defense, the cats in Turkey are quite harmless.)
