Abyssinian Kitten - The Abyssinian is one of the oldest breeds of pedigree cat and was one of those exhibited at the very first cat show held at the Crystal Palace in 1871. It is generally agreed that this breed originated in Egypt, and certainly the ticked coat pattern would have been the perfect camouflage for wild cats living in the dry, scrubby North African habitat.
The Abyssinian ~ is a breed of domestic shorthaired cat with distinctive "ticked" tabby coat. (curious about breeds, i read that these guys are Dolichocephalic or long headed, like Greyhounds and wolves and Siamese cats). #catbreeds
