A medium sized cat with a well-muscled build, the Somali is best described as a long haired version of the Abyssinian. Their colouring and beautiful bushy tail give them a fox-like appearance. Their eyes are big and almond-shaped and full of expression. The Somali comes in four basic coat colours – tawny, cinnamon, blue and beige-fawn. These four colours come in the silver range too.
