Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to -- Aloş, the gorgeous, yet derpy cat!
Aloş is a Turkish Van, a breed of domestic cat commonly seen in various cities of modern Turkey.
Fun fact! The Turkish language has letters for "ch" and "sh" - they are "ç" and "ş" respectively. This means Aloş is pronounced "ah-loe-sh!" We were forunate enough to have reached Aloş's owner and got an inside look into Aloş's story as well as his hilarious purrsonality!
When Aloş's owner first found Aloş, he was found as a stray on the street, said to be very neglected, weak and very, very stubborn. Aloş's owner took him in and has told us that Aloş completely lives by his own rules, stating, "He doesn't listen to me but I love him so much."
Even though Aloş himself is very fond of sleeping, he never lets his owners sleep at night. If Aloş has three characteristics to sum him up, his owner gave the words, "beautiful, angry, and funny."
Aloş is a gorgeous white cat with heterochromia, a groovy mutation that leaves each eye to be a different color. And both of Aloş's colors are quite striking against that gorgeous white fur of his! Get ready to fall in love with Aloş! And be sure to follow him on Instagram for all the adorable, gorgeous and derpy pics of this floof.
