These felines are known for theiroutgoing personalities and distinctive look.
The Abyssinian breed is believed to be one of the oldest cat breeds, with its roots in Ancient Egypt.
It’s thought that these cats were also offered to gods in Ancient Egyptian culture.
It has a triangular head shape with almond-shaped eyes in gold or green shades.
The ears are pointed, and the nose is short and slightly curved.
The Abyssinian is a medium-sized cat weighing between 6 and 10 pounds.
When it comes to health, Abyssinians have few major health issues known to afflict them.
On average, they live for 9-12 years.
Abyssinians are highly intelligent and can easily learn commands such as “sit” and “fetch.”
As a result, it is important to provide them with lots of mental stimulation every day.
They love playing fetch (yes, even though they’re cats) or using scratching posts.
If you have other pets at home, expect your Abyssinian to become best friends with them soon too.
Abyssinians are known for being very social cats who love interacting with people and other animals.
Due to their unique beauty and good nature, they have received numerous awards.
They won "Best in Show" at the prestigious TICA (The International Cat Association) show in 2017.
The breed’s success at these events means it is one of the most sought-after cats globally.
