Abyssinians are more interested in water than most cats. They aren’t the only breed to be water babies, of course, but they’re less afraid of getting wet than your average cat.
This is based on a photo of an Aby swimming in the Black Sea that was posted on the Facebook Abyssinian Cat Club. I wish the water around here was warmer (and cleaner!) – I wonder if Jacoby would like to add swimming to his repertoire?
