The Abyssinian ~ is a breed of domestic shorthaired cat with distinctive "ticked" tabby coat. (curious about breeds, i read that these guys are Dolichocephalic or long headed, like Greyhounds and wolves and Siamese cats).
Abyssinian Cat - a friend of mine had a male Abby, named Simon, that was so strong it had pecs. also survived a fall from a story apt window and after that, whenever he didn& want to be in side.he JUMPED from the floor. amazing breed, really sb
