Somali Cat Behavior,Personality,feeding.

The Somali Cat is a variation of the Abyssinian cat. The Abyssinian is a shorthaired breed but its females sometimes produced a longer-haired cat. The Abyssinian was breed to be shorthaired so the longer-hair is a recessive gene. These semi-longhaired Abyssinians were considered to be inferior in the 1920s and 1930s and were just considered house cats. By the 1960s an American breeder discovered a semi-longhaired Abyssinian from her stud cat and was able to consistently breed for the semi-longhair and the Somali Cat breed was established. The Somali Cat is named after the country of Somali in Africa. The Somali Cat should only be breed within the breed or to the Abyssinian Cat.

The Somali Cat comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The Usual is gold-brown. apricot. ticked with black. The Sorrel is apricot ticked with cinnamon. The Fawn is mushroom ticked with fawn. The Chocolate is apricot ticked with dark brown. The Lilac is apricot ticked with lilac. The Blue is mushroom ticked with blue. The Somali Cat also comes in red. cream. and several versions of Silver colors and tortoiseshell colors.

Somali is a medium to large sized, lithe, well-proportioned cat with a distinctly ticked coat. It bears an uncanny resemblance to a little fox, with its large ears, masked face, full ruff and bushy tail. It has large almond shaped eyes that range in color from green, hazel to amber.

Somali is an intelligent and affectionate cat. It is very lively and enjoys human company. It is active, inquisitive and high-spirited in nature. Somalis easily mingle with children and other pets. They are very attached to their owners.
