Somali


Though its name would indicate an origin in Somalia, this breed first appeared in the United States. However, it was named Somali because it derived from an Abyssinian. Despite its medium-length coat, it does not tolerate the cold. The CFA recognizes the Somali in four colors; ruddy, red, blue and fawn. Light and quick on its paws, the Somali is swift as a fox and every bit as intelligent.
