The Abyssinian is a very active, playful, and inquisitive breed. This slender, short-haired breed is distinguished by its coat pattern, which is ticked in the manner associated with wild cats.

Though ruddy is the color most associated with the breed, "Abys" are widely available in blue, fawn, and red (also known as sorrel), as well. They are also available in silver tones, lavender, chocolate, and sex-linked red, though not widely in the United States.

Interesting breed fact: The Abyssinian as a breed was largely developed in England; although popular mythology has it they were of African origin, there is no actual evidence to support this theory. The breed was nearly eradicated during World War II. After the war, there were only 12 registered Abyssinians left in England.
