Looking at an Abyssinian is like looking at an ancient Egyptian cat. The exact history of Abyssinians are shrouded in mystery. Abyssinians are the oldest breed of cat and is assumed to be one of the earliest descendants from the African wildcat, the ancestor to all domestic breeds of cats.
Abyssinians are medium sized cats that move with lithe and grace and have long, slim, well-defined muscular legs. Abyssinians have slightly rounded heads with big ears. They are lively and active. If you provide ample play, they will love you for life. But don’t expect an Abyssinian to be a lap cat. Abyssinians LOVE water.
They are very interested in all that goes on around them. Abysinnians want to participate in your activities and will reward you with so much love and affection.
