About the Somali

The long-haired cousin of the Abyssinian, Somali cats are a combination of beauty and personality.

They are the epitome of everything most people want in a companion animal: lively, alert and actively engaged in everything that piques their curiosity, but when playtime is over, they will seek all the attention and affection their caretakers are willing to give.
