Abyssinian cat – Information, Pictures, Personality

Abyssinian cat is a cat breed that has specific coloring (a zonal one), which looks like the one that hares or rabbits have. The cat body coloring has no pattern on it. Such coloring appears because each hair has stripes which interlace (it is called ticking) – light ones (yellow or ochery) and dark ones (black or brown).

This happens because when hair grows its dark and light pigments lie mixed in it. Rabbits and hares have only one dark ring on their hair while abyssinian cats have two or three rings (double or triple ticking).

Such coloring is also called agouti.
