Abyssinian kittens are very active and curious by nature. They are also clever, with one of their favorite pastimes being to watch humans doing things and then copying them. Abyssinian kittens love jumping and climbing, so often the tops of doors and high cupboards are their favorite places to perch. They can run extremely fast and are full of energy, craving lots of physical stimulation. For this reason they do very well in families with children or other pets who will join them in playtime. Abyssinian cats have long, muscular bodies, lovely big eyes, big ears and fairly thin faces. Their beautiful coats are thick and shiny without much need for grooming. They come in a variety of striking colors, including red, fawn, chocolate, lilac and cinnamon.
