Abyssinian cats reveal primeval cats’ disposition and nature. They are amazingly keen hunters and often turn out to be quite stubborn. However, once you gain their trust and affection, your relation changes to eternal love and friendship.
They like the company of other cats – on account of their strong will, they often lead the group of cats but are not aggressive in any ways. Usually they do not get into fights and rarely react with anger or annoyance to other cats’ taunts. They do not let themselves to be provoked and prefer to get to know other cats with no aggression.
In spite of being extremely curious and being able to look into every nook and cranny, Abys rarely cause any damage. They are agile, nimble and subtle – this enables them to weave obstacles and all the knick-knacks in their way. They are so slight, so petite and so light that they do not scratch furniture with their claws while jumping on it.
Abyssinian cats are high-jumping creatures. They are curious, inquisitive, intelligent and sensitive. Abys incessantly look for human’s attention, following their owners everywhere. They try to accompany their humans in every single chore – no matter if you’re about to make your bed, wash the dishes, do the laundry – the Abyssinian will definitely assist you in every activity.
These cats absolutely love hunting and chasing insects, running after their toys, climbing the cat trees – probably, the first one to get exhausted by the playtime will be… the owner and not the cat.
The unique sound that Abyssinians make is more like chirping than meowing. They will pay for your love and care with their calming purring, intense caresses, rubbing and their constant presence by your side.
