Somali Kitten

Don’t get a Somali Cat if you want a cat that’s just going to lie around the house all day. With all the virtues of his sibling the Abyssinian and adorned by a gorgeous semi-long coat, the Somali Cat is a beautiful and boisterous addition to any household.


Somali Cat

The Somali Cat is a playful, persistent cat who adores being the center of attention and will do anything to achieve and maintain that status. Everything is a game to a Somali Cat... some will play fetch, some prefer to chase that ball down the hall and then bat it up and down, until it rolls back to your feet for you to throw again.
