Aby-a-Day – Day 345 of 365

Angel, while being a purebred Aby from a CFA breeder, isn’t really very well bred. Her confirmation is not at all up to the CFA breed standard: It states that Abyssinians should be “medium long, lithe and graceful,” but Angel is more stocky, bow-legged, and, well, she’s built like a brick. The TICA breed standard says Abys’ legs should be “Proportionately slim, long and well-muscled. The Abyssinian stands well off the ground.” Angel’s legs are short, and she has a much lower center of gravity than most Abys.

But that’s okay. Her head, inside and out, is as Abyssinian as it gets.
