Cat Breed Description

The Somali cat is perhaps most easily described as a longhaired Abyssinian, although over time, the types have diverged some and these breeds no longer look like exact counterparts. The lively Somali cat has a bushy tail that led to the nickname "fox cat". Its dense, soft coat is ticked in the manner associated with wild cats. Their semi-longhaired coat requires little grooming, although some individuals with a denser undercoat may require more regular brushing.

The Somali personality is extroverted, active, inquisitive, very affectionate and people-oriented. They can be stubborn and obedience is better won with love and praise than with punishment. Many Somalis have become successful therapy cats.
