Abyssinian

One of the most popular cat breeds. The Abyssinian with a regal bearing, were possibly worshiped by the ancient Egyptians.  This cat has also gained significant popularity in cat shows, mostly due to its unique ticked coat colors. They  usually mix well with children and other pets and like to join in family activities.


Abyssinian

Origin: Ethopia /Egypt.
Colours: Ruddy, red, blue and fawn.
Temperament: Intelligent, inquisitive active,playful and companionable cats.

Features:

The Abyssinian with lithe and muscular body shape has a modified wedge-shaped head, large, alert, pointed ears, and large, expressive, almond-shaped eyes. A ring of dark color on the eyelids accentuates the eyes, making the cat appear to be wearing black eyeliner. The body is long, hard and muscular, with slim, fine-boned legs and feet. Another trait that sets the Abyssinian apart is the ticked or agouti coat pattern, characterized by alternating bands of color  on the hair shafts. Each individual hair is decorated with light-colored bands contrasted with dark-colored bands. The lighter or ground color lies closest to the skin, and the hair shaft ends with a dark tip. This gives the coat a distinctive stippled appearance. The coat is medium in length, long enough to accommodate two or three bands of ticking.

I have a 16 year old cat. Keeps getting constipated. Very painful bowel movements at times(crying out, howling). He eats both dry and wet(canned) food daily. I have tried adding some cooking oil to his food, but this doesn't seem to help. He won't take the malt stuff from a tube. Any suggestions? Thanks. Ken
