Aby-a-Day – January 31: Beauty in detail

Before I got Angel, I hadn’t ever really seen a red Abyssinian close up. Based pretty much just on photos in books, I believed they were just sort of faded ruddy Abys.

So not true. Their colour is described as “warm, glowing red, distinctly ticked with chocolate-brown,” and there should not be any black hairs at all. It’s subtle, but beautiful.


As you can see, even the back of Angel’s head is fascinating.
