Abyssinians are one of the oldest known breeds in the world, their beginnings tracing back to ancient Egypt. The first "abys," as they are affectionately known by those who love them, were shown in 1871 at the Crystal Palace Cat show in England. These cats are tabby genetically, but should show an absence of tabby markings. They are an extremely intelligent and active breed that is very people oriented but not necessarily a lap cat. They like to know what you are doing, and want to help!
Somalis are the semi-longhaired counterpart of the Abyssinian, and are often referred to as the foxes of the cat fancy. Their personalities are very much like the Abyssinian; intelligent, active, loving, and very loyal companions. They have been a CFA Recognized breed since 1979.
