The Abyssinian Cat

As far back as four thousand years ago, Abyssinian cats were a very original breed of cat in ancient Egypt. Zula was the first Abyssinian cat that was brought to Europe by a British soldier. This was quite after Britain’s victory over Abyssinia in 1868 during the Abyssinian war.

Although the Aby was brought to the United States in the 1900s, it only became popular around the 1930s. All around the world today, cat breed registries, such as The International Cat Association and The Cat Fanciers Association, recognize the Abyssinian cat. It is among the top five most popular cat breeds of the world.
