  9. As a cat owner, I glad to see that our feline friends are receiving their turn this week!!!

    We have an Abyssinian cat. For those of you not familiar with the breed, Abyssinians are believed to be descendants of the cats that were owned and worshiped by the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. They look exactly like the statues of the cats that were found in the tombs. They have beautiful red or ruddy coats that are “ticked” at the ends with black and wonderfully expressive eyes and mannerisms.

    These unusual cats were discovered by the British in Abyssinia (now Ethiopia), which was once part of Egypt. They were brought back to England in the 1880s.


    Abyssinians are extremely intelligent and friendly animals and make excellent companions. They follow you around and always want to be involved with what you are doing. Abys are highly interactive and trainable - my cat comes when she’s called, knows her name, and can play “fetch” as well as any dog. She never leaves my side - she’s a lovely kitty.
