There is a fast-spreading pedigree kitten scam doing the rounds. Scamsters are using the name and cattery name of registered breeders, creating credible-looking email addresses and are marketing kittens at exorbitant prices and even more exorbitant shipping fees. Of course the kittens do not exist and once payment has been received, the ‘breeder’ vanishes and the number no longer works. Some complainants have mentioned "West Africa/French accents" when they did, in early phases of the buying process, spoken to these fraudulent "breeders".
We urge you to please do due diligence and confirm email addresses and telephone numbers of breeders with the 3 South African cat registration bodies before responding to any adverts. If what is seen in an advert or email differs from what the registration bodies’ supply, BE AWARE! All reputable breeders would have to be registered with at least one of these bodies.

Abyssinian Breeders


Abyssinian - Show Cat


Abyssinians are extroverted, willful and intelligent, but are usually not "lap cats".

They are far too preoccupied with exploring and playing as they would in their natural habitat. 
Although very popular among breeders and owners, Abyssinians are shy towards strangers and tend to have a timid nature. 
They have quiet, engaging voices that can often be misleading. Abys, as they are affectionately referred to by their fans, need a great deal of contact with the family to keep them happy and can get depressed without daily activity and attention.
They generally get on well with other cats, although they need their space and the females can sometimes be irritable around other cats. 
Abyssinians are known for their curiosity and enjoy exploring their surroundings, including heights, although they are sensible cats that do not take unnecessary risks.
