Their long, lean body gives Abys the ability to jump from great heights.
They’re an athletic feline with low body fat due to its fast paced metabolism. Compared to other medium-sized cats, Abys are not one to sit in place for long. They are curious creatures that consistently love exploring their habitats.
Abys are also known for their unique coat. Unlike other cat breeds, Abys have bands of color on each individual hair strand which results in a “ticked” pattern. In addition, the hair running along their spine is often darker in color, adding to the Aby’s beauty.
People often comment how the Abyssinians resemble depictions of ancient Egyptian cats. Their muscular body, arched neck, large ears, and almond shaped eyes make them look wild.
