Based near Morpeth, Northumberland. I previously bred Norwegian Forest Cats for almost 20 years, and now Somali. The longhaired version of the Abyssian which is one of the oldest breeds of cat is from the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. When in full coat, they are quite fox-like.
They come in several colours but only in the ticked tabby pattern. I focus on Wild/Ruddy/Usual which is genetically Black ticked tabby the dilute of that which is Blue ticked tabby but may occasionally have some kittens in other colours.
Somalis are super curious about everything going on in the house, they are there every time you open a door or cupboard. They greet you at the door, remind you it’s dinner time and love to curl up next to you on the sofa or bed.
They have mad half hours, where they chase one another through the house, they are good jumpers and climbers but like all cats, their favourite thing to do is sleep.
