They are fine-boned and elegant, with a wedge-shaped head, a long silky coat and a plumed tail, and often described as a "ballerina-like" cat.


Author Victor Seroff re Composer Claude Debussy: Debussy's cats were always Angora, always called the same name, and allowed to meander through his workplace.
