ABYSSINIAN CAT ©Aby Sphere
Among my favorite breeds of cat
The name ‘Abyssinian’ refers to Ethiopia, but most of the stories about the origins of Abyssinians refer to Egypt. 
Genetic research suggests the breed originated near the coast of the Indian Ocean, where colonists may have purchased animals from wild animal traders. The breed was developed in Egypt
These felines owe their special coat to one dominant mutant gene known  as Ta. Each hair has a base color with three or four darker-colored  bands; the hair is the lighter colour at the root, and the darker  “ticking” color at the tip. This ticking is found only in the Somali,  Abyssinian and Singapura.
Abyssinians are extroverted, extremely active, playful, willful and  intelligent. They are arguably the most active breed of cats. They are  usually not “lap cats”, being too preoccupied with exploring and  playing.
They are sensible cats that do not take unnecessary risks. 
As one might  expect from such an intelligent and physically capable breed,  Abyssinians are known to be formidable hunters. 
They adore toys and can  play for hours with a favorite ball. 
Some play fetch.
