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.
HIGHLANDER CAT ~~~ Development of the breed began in 2004 and an early name for it was the Highland Lynx. No wild cat genes were used to develop the breed, rather the name refers to the desire to create a domestic cat with a powerful "Big Cat" look. In 2005, the name Highlander was decided on for this unique breed of cat. Pictured is a Highland Lynx. Her name is Sass and she belongs to SherBobs Exotic Cats in NC.
