The confident and alert Abyssinian (Aby) is thought to be one of the oldest cat breeds. The six- to 10-pound, moderately vocal cat stands out for his ticked coat, which comes in a bevy of colours, including a reddish ruddy, chocolate, cinnamon, blue, lilac, and fawn—as well as a silver version for all of these colours.
The intelligent and curious Aby is highly active and athletic. He spends his days climbing up to high places, exploring every nook and cranny of your home, and diligently supervising whatever it is that you’re doing. They are a happy cat who’s sometimes called the Aby-silly-an because of his playful nature. He does best with a person who spends a lot of time at home interacting with him. He also prefers to be the only cat in the house.
The Abyssinian’s distinctive look is believed to be the result of a mix of several beautiful breeds: Siamese, Burmese, and Russian Blues.
Life expectancy: 9-15 years
