Country of Origin: United States


The Somali cat belongs to the Abyssinian family and is longhaired. Although their entire body is longhaired their tail is especially long and bushy. Many breeds of cats shed their entire coat either once or twice each year, while the Somali coat does so gradually throughout the year.

Although the Somali breed of cat is not one of the larger cats it still needs a fair bit of room to move around. That is because they are very active and alert cats by nature. Because of this they usually enjoy to be kept outside as this gives them plenty of room and freedom.
