The Abyssinian is never happier than when in human company, and it is surprisingly comfortable with dogs too, despite its cautious streak. This elegant cat has a distinctively shaped head and wide-set ears, but its personality is more boisterous than its regal bearing suggests. Lively games and plenty of interactive play will keep this intelligent and curious breed content.
To ensure your Abyssinian cat is protected in the case of an emergency, take a look at our cat insurance policies.
|Colour:||A warm golden-brown Abyssinian with black markings is classed as ‘usual’. There are other colours too though, such as chocolate, sorrel (a rich cinnamon), blue, lilac and fawn.|
