Meet the Abyssinian

Abyssinians have unique “ticked” tabby coats where individual hairs contain different colours. This gives a beautiful sheen look to their fur, which looks stunning under sunlight. As they grow into adults, Aby’s become lean and muscular with long legs and tails. They also have relatively small paws, making them look like they are standing on tiptoes because of their long legs. Moreover, their athletic figure gives them the appearance of a wild cat.

Their faces are cute yet distinctive, and they have wedge-shaped heads. They possess slightly too large ears, large almond-shaped eyes, and an M-shaped marking, all of which add to their adorability. They have an ‘always alert’ look, making it difficult to tell how relaxed they are. This is due to the forward-facing ears and the shape of their eyes.

You’ll find Abyssinians in various colours; however, the most common is a warm, reddish-brown base with black ticking. There are also silver Abyssinians, but these are a separate group. As for their eyes, most have either gold or green eyes, but sometimes it can be a mixture of both colours.

Classed as a medium-sized cat breed, your Aby will likely weigh between 8 to 12 pounds (3.5 - 5.5 kg) once fully grown. Their average lifespan is between 10 to 15 years.

Abyssinian Temperament

Despite looking like a wild cat, Abyssinians are one of the most loving cat breeds who adore spending time with humans. In fact, they possess an almost dog-like desire to follow their owner around the house.

Aside from being loyal and loving companions, Abys are extremely intelligent, super playful, and curious explorers. They seem to retain their high kitten-like energy as they age and love regular play sessions. Therefore, an Abyssinian is not a lap cat.

Because of their desire to explore, don’t be surprised to find your Aby sitting atop the fridge or a door. In fact, these cats will make it their mission to reach the highest places in the house!

Abys are a social cat breed and display great confidence when meeting new people. They are not one to hide under the sofa and instead will lap up the chance for some extra attention.

Another reason why Abyssinians are similar to dogs is their ability to learn tricks and be trained. However, because they are so bright, if you don’t take the opportunity to train them and teach them the rules when they are young, they will quickly be running rings around you!

10 Reasons to add Abyssinian to your Family

  1. Good with other pets - They are great with other animals, including other cats. They also get along with dogs much more than many other breeds, primarily if you socialize them young.
  2. Very adaptable - They adapt and deal well with change, such as moving house throughout their lives.
  3. They like children - They love children and have the confidence to play with them rather than run away. However, they are intelligent enough to stay away from very young children, such as toddlers, who may cause them harm.
  4. Low maintenance - They require a low level of cleaning. You do not need to wash your Aby. Instead, you should brush them once a week or so and wipe them down with a cloth from time to time.
  5. They will make you laugh - Because of their crazy antics of zooming around and jumping up to high places, your Aby will fill your home with laughter and love.
  6. They make excellent companions - Some cats are so independent that you can often forget you have a pet. However, this is never the case with an Abyssinian. They will always be in the same room as you and will stay right by your side as you work, eat, sleep, and even go to the bathroom with you.
  7. They can learn tricks - If you’ve ever wanted to teach a cat some tricks, now is your chance. Abyssinians are generally trainable, and it’s not uncommon to see an Aby playing fetch with its owner.
  8. They are not loud - Although an Abyssinian will follow you around, they will usually do so in a quiet way. They are not super vocal, and if they are meowing, it’s most likely because they are hungry or want to play.
  9. They are known to be very healthy - Unlike some cat breeds, Abyssinians do not have a wide range of potential health issues. They are likely to maintain good health throughout their life if well cared for.
  10. They make brilliant family cats - Because of their friendly nature and goofy personality, they quickly become a much-loved and essential family member.

Best Homes for Abyssinian

Because Abyssinians are social with adults and children alike, they do well in family homes. They are also a good choice if you have other cats or pets. They typically do not take too long to become comfortable around other animals.

One thing to note about Abyssinians is that as they love to be around people, they would be most happy in a home where someone is home most of the day. So, if you’re a housewife or you work from home, an Aby could make your perfect feline companion.

Abyssinians enjoy being outdoors and exploring their surroundings. Therefore, if they have access to the outside world, they will be most happy. However, if you are not keen to let them free roam, they are easily trainable to walk on a leash.

It is also totally okay to keep an Aby as an indoor-only cat. However, you will need to ensure their environment has enough stimulation to keep this high-energy breed entertained. Cat trees, climbing spots, and lots of puzzle toys to challenge their intelligent mind will help to keep them happy and fulfilled indoors.

Frequently Asked Questions About Abyssinian Kittens

Why should I choose an Abyssinian kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
The Pedigree Paws work with the very best licensed breeders from the UK and Europe. This guarantees that your new family member is healthy, well cared for, and will grow into a physically and mentally healthy pet. Despite kitten mills being illegal in the UK, some unlicensed breeders still focus on the quantity of kittens rather than their quality of health. That’s why our mission is to fight pet farms by supporting the best breeders and the hard work they do to protect animal welfare.
Is an Abyssinian kitten the right pet for me?
If you’re looking for an active yet quiet kitten who will make you laugh and shower you with love, an Abyssinian kitten will be perfect for you. They are very social cats who love to be involved in the family rather than do their own thing. Because of this, an Abyssinian kitten is ideal if you want a furry companion who isn’t just part of the family but the centre of it. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a calm, relaxed kitten who will snuggle with you as you settle down to watch your evening shows, an Abyssinian may not be best for you. As they are high energy and intelligent kittens, they prefer to be on the go, exploring new parts of the house, or watching the birds outside.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
We completely understand that in the pet breeding industry, it’s hard to know who to trust. However, we’re pleased to say that the hundreds of previous customers who entrusted The Pedigree Paws in finding their forever furry friend are happy with the result. We have plenty of testimonials on our website to back this up, too. So, if you want to avoid getting a kitten from a pet mill or you worry about being scammed, ordering a kitten from The Pedigree Paws is the most trustworthy and ethical choice.
Are Abyssinian kittens from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Yes, we only work with breeders who follow our strict health protocols. Firstly, all of our Abyssinian kittens are thoroughly health checked, dewormed, microchipped, and have received their complete set of vaccinations. Secondly, we ensure the parents of all the Abssininian kittens we sell have been DNA checked. This is because some cat breeds can be susceptible to genetic diseases. So a DNA test can both prove that the kittens are of the Abyssinian breed and that they do not have any genetic mutations present in their DNA. This will assure you that your kitten will not develop health problems later down the line.
When can I receive my Abyssinian kitten?
We know that for many people, the smaller the kitten, the cuter they are. Even so, it’s important that kittens are not weaned or taken away from their mother or siblings too early. Early weaning can result in a whole host of development and behavioural issues. To prevent this, we like all our Abyssinian kittens to stay with their mother and siblings for at least 10-13 weeks before coming to you. The exact duration, however, will depend on the breeder.
Can I see the parent of an Abyssinian kitten?
Absolutely! Whenever buying an Abyssinian kitten, or any other cat breed, we recommend that you see the kitten’s parents. Seeing a friendly and healthy Abyssinian mother cat gives you peace of mind that your new kitten will be healthy too. As a fully transparent and trustworthy company, we will arrange a video call for you with the breeder to show you the kittens and their both parents.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of an Abyssinian kitten?
Yes, all our Abyssinian kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as GCCF, TICA, FIFe. The exact registration will depend on the location of the breeder. For example, in Great Britain, most Abyssinian kittens will be registered under GCCF.
Are the Abyssinian kittens from The Pedigree Paws from good breeders?
Yes, The Pedigree Paws offers kittens only from the best breeders that adhere to strict breeding and animal welfare policies set by international cat fancy organisations. In addition, we select the most passionate breeders who can prove that they work hard to protect their health and well-being. Our breeder selection process is comprehensive. For example, we ensure our breeders treat their animals like family members rather than a product to sell. In this way, we know the Abyssinian kittens will grow into the loveable, funny, and quirky cats they are and display all the beautiful qualities of the Abyssinian breed.
Are Pedigree Paws Abyssinian kittens raised in a family home or breeding facility?
Our Abyssinians are raised in a clean and loving family home environment with their parents rather than a commercial breeding facility. There are various reasons why kittens should not grow up in a commercial breeding facility. Aside from the main priority of breeding facilities being to make money, this environment is more likely to be unclean. Plus, the kittens do not get the individual care and attention needed, which can lead to poor health, well-being, and development. Abyssinian kittens raised in a family environment are not only well cared for, but this environment ensures they are well socialised and comfortable around people. Thus, they will be happy, friendly kittens who will adapt to their new home quickly.
How can I help settle my Abyssinian kitten into their new home?
The good thing about Abyssinians is that they are one of the most adaptable, confident and sociable cat breeds. Therefore, most Abyssinians should adjust to the new environment within a few days. However, there are certainly some ways you can help your new Aby feel at ease and reduce any stress they may feel. Firstly, you can ask the breeder to send the kitten to you with a towel or blanket with their mother’s scent. The feline pheromones that mother cats give off are incredibly calming and can help your kitten feel safe. Secondly, you should introduce your Aby to just one room in the house first, giving them a chance to get used to a small space before exploring the rest of the home.
