The overall impression of the ideal Abyssinian would be a colorful cat with a distinctly ticked coat, medium in size and regal in appearance.
The Abyssinian is lithe, hard and muscular, showing eager activity and a lively interest in all surroundings. This breed is well balanced temperamentally and physically with all elements of the cat in proportion.
COAT LENGTH: Shorthair
The Abyssinian is extremely intelligent and very people oriented. They are inquisitive and have to have their noses in everything that you do. They love their people, and can be great lap cats -- when they want to be. They will quickly have their owners trained to their lifestyle.
"My Abys want everything - I know why people call them Aby-grabbys. They are endlessly curious and assume anything I like to eat should be for them too !! "
"My Abyssinians have been the joy of my life, which is never dull with them around. They are delightful company and keep me amused constantly. "
