Today’s pedigree Abyssinian looks like the sacred cats that are depicted in ancient Egyptian tomb paintings. The name Abyssinian comes from the country to the south-east of Egypt that is known as Ethiopia today. The Abyssinian is a medium-sized, lithe and muscular cat with an arching elegant neck and distinctive large ears.
The original Abyssinian cat has a ruddy coloured short-haired coat, with a rich golden brown base ticked with black although you can get fawn, blue, lilac and silver coloured breeds. The ticked coat is one of the breed’s distinguishable features. Abyssinian Cats are inquisitive, playful creatures by nature, often energetic and enjoy hunting.
Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank Broadley FRBS.
