Abyssinian's are one of the world's oldest known breeds of cats.  Although it looks like a jungle cat, they have also retained the look of the Egyptian cats we see in sculptures and paintings. In the United States there are four varieties, red, ruddy, blue and fawn..

It is not known where this cat actually originated. We do know the cat appeared in Britain after British Soldiers returned home from war in 1868.
