The Abyssinian Cat
The Abyssinian Cat is considered to be one of the oldest breeds of familial Cat in the world, as the first domestication of the Abyssinian Cat happened in early Egyptian times. It is considered that Abyssinian Cats were sold and bought on the banks of the River Nile by brokers, where the African Wild Cats existed in their resident habitats. Abyssinian Cats are most simply recognized by their “ticked” fur which gives their coat a mottled form.
They have a wilder appearing look when evaluated to many breeds of domestic cat in recent times. They have large ears on top of its broad head, and the big almond-shaped eyes of the Abyssinian are still unique to this breed these days. These cats are average sized cat with a long and burly yet slight body and a moderately small tail. Although today, the Abyssinian can be establish in a range of diverse colours from blue to lilac to red, the dense, silky fur of the Abyssinian was firstly silver or fawn in colour.
