Abyssinian Cat Breed

The Abyssinian is a beautiful short-haired breed of long-haired domestic cat with a beautiful "ticking" tabby coat where each hair is banded with other colors. In professional terms, they're called simply Abyssinian. The original breed name was given to the breed by an Abys, who found that the black Abyssinian cats living in his native land had certain characteristics which he was able to pass on to the rest of the breed.

It's interesting to note that the name Abyssinian came from an Arabic word, meaning" Abyssinian." Because the breed was in short supply during early times, its survival was dependent on traveling and trade. It was through the intermediates of traders and merchants, that the first Abyssinians were bred.

This lovely short-haired breed has a luxuriant coat that's completely self-cleansing, providing a lustrous shine. The double-layered coat provides optimum protection against the harsh weather conditions in the desert. These animals live in the wild only in the most rugged areas, so you're unlikely to see them in the milder parts of the country.

The Abyssinian Cat Breed is medium-sized with a sleek body, rounded ears, and a tail that is easily curled. They have an independent temperament and do not do well as pets. Their good qualities include their sweet temper, beautiful color and markings, and their intelligence. They're also very affectionate and have a tendency to be clingy when young.

If you'd like to get more than one cat, an Abyssinian may not be the best choice, since they can become possessive. However, an Abyssinian with some neutered males and females will fit in just fine. If you have other cats at home, you can even try pairing them.

Watch out for medical issues. An Abyssinian kitten can get very sick if not properly cared for. It's important that you know all about any potential health problems in your breeding stock. The Abyssinian tends to be born with the "semi-permanent" or "wild" spots on its face. If you're planning to show this cat, keep him indoors during the pregnancy to prevent him from being born with these.

Grooming is an important part of owning Abyssinian, but you'll need to brush and bathe them frequently. When it comes to their hair, though, they're more than happy to let you do it. The hair on these cats tends to be very thick and shiny. If you have two Abyssinian cats, each should get its own brush. You can bathe both at the same time if you want.

These cats love attention, and they get it from you. They tend to look forward to a day of cuddling with you, and they even sleep with their belly to you. They can be quite reserved, however, so keep their environment as quiet as much as possible and don't let them out of your site unsupervised. If you're going to show this breed, you'll need to make sure he has a fenced-in area outside his home when he's not with you.

Because these cats are somewhat larger than their counterparts, they don't do well in the apartment. They can overheat very easily, especially if you allow them outdoors for extended periods. This is because when they're home all the time, their metabolism increases which make them burn energy quicker.

Grooming can be an issue with this breed. This isn't because of their short hair. It's more of the fact that they have a tendency to snip at their own hair. If you aren't accustomed to having your cat shaved, it can lead to irritation. You can reduce the risk of this happening by using products specifically designed for sensitive skin. The only other thing to remember is that you're going to have to get used to their hair being long, rather than short, in order to make this type of grooming style work.

Abyssinians are one of the few breeds that have virtually no pattern of any type. This means that if you're going to get a pair, you're going to have to do a bit of "muscle memory" when choosing the right color. While this may sound strange, it can be done. Basically, all colors in the Abyssinian breed have to be mixed up somehow, and there are far more variations in terms of mixing colors within the breed than you would expect.

The final pro point is that the Abyssinian is extremely easy to groom. They are very active, and they shed a lot. This, however, is great for your carpet. These cats love to clean themselves, and they will clean your carpet automatically when they're not using it.
