The Abyssinian Cat



The Abyssinian is the cat of the Ancient Egyptians originating from Abyssinia which is now Ethiopia. They were originally bred in Egypt and had been used for years for hunting purposes. Abyssinians were highly worshipped in Egypt and had even been mummified in many cases as documented in archeological findings. In fact, some pictures of cats in hieroglyphics found in Egypt have bodies that resemble very much what an Abyssinian cat looks like today. This cat was first domesticated in 1868 when a British soldier found a female kitten in Egypt. It is widely believed that this kitten was the source of todayís modern Abyssinian cat line but this is up for debate.

They are medium in size, elegant looking cats with limber muscular bodies, long slim legs, smallish paws and strongly pointed ears. A strong green or yellow color can be found on the eyes. The eyes can feature a strong outline around them. This can be very light in color.

The shape of this breed of cat is unique. It features a wedge-shaped head with thin legs and a well-defined nose that is aligned properly with the chin. Also, some additional markings can be found on this catís face. The ears will be easily distinguishable because they are very pointy.
