The Abyssinian is very athletic and active. People are transported back to ancient Egypt when seeing an Abyssinian for the first time- their elegant form reminds you of Bast, the ancient Egyptian Goddess of protection.
This breed has a distinctive "ticked" tabby coat and dark facial markings and has a unique way of standing and walking- they are tippy toed!
