Somali (Abyssinian Longhair)

The name is fanciful as the breed was developed in the USA by the retention of longhaired kittens produced by the Abyssinian. The Somali is a well-balanced cat of foreign type and medium build, regal in appearance, lithe, hard, and muscular with a well-ticked semi-longhair coat. Should appear eager and active, shows a lively interest in its surroundings.
