‘Ruya’ is the first Turkish Van to be made up to Imperial, the latest in a long line of Akadamar firsts. She is a direct relative to Supreme winner 1995 and 1996, Akdamar Bazisey Mahsus.
Hill illustrious pedigree and history is all there and present in Ruya.
Breeders, Joyce and David Johnson, are thrilled at her elevation to Imperial and wish to thank all the judges who set her upon her road to success.
The Johnsons also have praise for Our Cats News & Features Editor, Nick Mays who, upon meeting Ruya at her first show, remarked then, and in his show report: ‘This is certainly one to watch for the future’.

Ruya certainly IS one to watch - she is still young and her show career is still very much in progress. Joyce and David say of their wonderful girl: ‘Watch this space!’
