The Abyssinian cat is an intelligent cat among all the cat breeds, very people loving, extremely active and a cat that respond on interaction. They always watch what you are doing and then try to help you in doing that work, for example they like to help you to make a phone call; help you to make coffee or while cleaning cloths, in fact they try to include in all family activities. Abyssinian is not always the choice of everyone. Some people do get irritated when the cat copies them. Such people should select any other cat breed for their house.
Abyssinians do become good family member but try to bond themselves more with Adults and older children rather than young toddlers. Abyssinians are not vocal. They have a small bell like voice to communicate. They prefer to sit on higher places such as almiraas, refrigerators etc. They get on very well with dogs and will quickly teach the dog who is the boss. Once a relationship is formed between a men and an Abyssinian cat then there is no breed more loyal than an Abyssinian. Abyssinian expects attention on homecoming for 10-15 minutes. Like people, these cats become very lonely if left alone for a long period, so it is advised to have two as company for each other.
The Abyssinian is very loving and most demanding cat. They do need attention and settle well into your life. Like other cat breeds, they also become very attached to their owner. They are not noisy but very active and always like to play. Abyssinians are too tempered and usually gets harsh while introducing new pets. They are mischievous when they are young but as soon as they get older they slower down their movement. They always need a company. So if you are an outgoing personality also away from home then I would suggest not to keep an Abyssinian cat. They always need a space to play, a garden would be the perfect place for them because they love climbing, chasing insects and jump in the air.
Abyssinian Cat Behavior
The Abyssinians are very curious by nature and enjoy exploring the world. They always like to be in the middle of everything going around them. Normally it is very difficult to do work if an Abyssinian cat is around you. No matter whatever work you are doing like cleaning the house and garden or changing the bed sheet, Abyssinians are always around you to distract you.
Abyssinians are very curious by nature, so for not to get them bored always provide them with plenty of toys, scratching posts and best of all the ”love”. A bored cat will lead to destructive behavior, so make sure you make your cats life interesting.
