Cats are sometimes accused of being aloof and treating their owners like servants. Abyssinians are the exact opposite!
This devoted and affectionate cat thrives on company. In fact Abyssinians are so loyal they will become depressed if they are ignored.
Where I'm From
Abyssinians are believed to have originated in either Ethiopia, formerly know as Abyssinia, or possibly Egypt. The breed spread throughout Europe after being taken back from North Africa by British soldiers in the 19th century.
What I Look Like
They are one of the most graceful looking cats, with short hair, a slender build and fine bones. They grow to a medium size with large, wide-set pointed ears.
The Abyssinian's coat is one of its most distinctive features. Kittens are born with dark coats that gradually lighten, developing a unique fine fleck known as 'ticking'. The most common coat colours can range from warm reddish brown to chocolate shades.
Abyssinians have almond shaped eyes. Eye colours can be gold, green, hazel or copper.
Looking After Me
This breed is very low maintenance. Their short, low shedding coat means they need only the occasional light brush. Brushing their teeth as well will help prevent periodontal disease.
Abyssinians have been associated with kidney disease, which may be due to genetics.
Am I the pet for you?
Abyssinians are great with children and other pets.
If you're after a playful, extroverted, curious little companion, an Abyssinian could be just the right cat for you.

Kittens form social relationships with other kittens they meet in the litter, whereas two cats that don’t share the same mother, takes much more time to ...
