Cat Breed Description

The Abyssinian personality is friendly, outgoing, interactive, and inquisitive. This slender, short-haired breed is distinguished by its coat pattern, which is ticked in the manner associated with wild cats. They are fearless and can get themselves in trouble if not properly supervised. They wake up with a "to-do" list and don't rest until everything is checked off. Abyssinians can be very stubborn and difficult to distract once they have an idea.

Though ruddy is the color most associated with the breed, Abyssinian cats are widely available in blue, fawn, and red (also known as sorrel or cinnamon) as well. They are less commonly available in silver tones, lavender, chocolate, sex-linked red, and tortie.
