My little abyssinian

I've had a few cats,a Persian, normal housecats, one pure Abyssinian and one part Abyssinian. Abyssinan cats are not like any other kind I have known. Like Siamese cats, which I have read they are related to, they get especially attached to one person. My cat is very affectionate, especially to her favorite person, me. They have a small voice which is a plus. She likes to sleep close to me at night, and wants a lot of attention. We live on the fourth floor, and she is an indoor cat, except she sometimes she goes to the roof, and the balcony, but never goes far. Abyssinians like to stay in the highest point they can find. She is very playful and an excellent bee hunter ( a hobby of hers in the summer time). She is a bit more like a dog than a cat sometimes, greets you when you come home, doesn't like to be alone ( you preferably need to have another cat to keep it company), and can behave like a watchdog to strangers (A new babysitter once was so afraid of her that she locked herself in the bathroom and we had to come home early). The minuses of having an abyssininan based on my experience that it needs a lot of affection and can get almost to clingy at times,and it has a sensitive stomach (at least mine). Abyssinians are definitely my favorite cat breed so far and I highly recommend it if you have time to give it the love it needs
