Cats are obligate carnivores and Abysinnians are no exception. This means that they are biologically engineered to get the nutrients they need from meat. However, the industry standard falls short of this. It is not uncommon to see cat food made with little meat, of poor quality, which is cooked at high temperatures to last on a shelf for months, even years.

When your Abyssinian kitten is young, it is recommended to split their daily food into 3 - 4 servings. At KatKin, we perfectly portion your Abyssinian kitten’s food into daily pouches. This means you can provide your kitten with all the nutrients they need by dividing one pouch into 3 or 4 meals throughout the day.
One pouch of KatKin fresh cat food will satisfy your Abyssinian cat daily. This is because we tailor to every cat we meet. We take into consideration your Abyssinian cat’s age, weight and activity levels and create a pouch with the exact daily calorie and nutrient levels your Abyssinian needs. Healthy eating couldn’t be easier.
Whilst no cat is fully hypoallergenic, Abyssinian cats are typically considered ok for people with milder allergies. There are a few reasons why Abyssinian cats may be less likely to cause a reaction. Firstly they shed less, which means they leave less dander around. Abyssinians also produce a lower than average amount of Fel D1, a protein responsible for skin allergies.
No, although Abyssinian cats are named after the country now known as modern day Egypt, they did not originally come from there. Geneticists have shown the Abyssinians are more likely to have originated from South East Asia. Abyssinians gained their name and association with Egypt because this was where they were first imported to the UK from. Another reason why Abyssinians are mistakenly thought to have come from Egypt is that they closely resemble cats depicted in ancient Egyptian paintings and sculptures.
All cats are special, but Abyssinian cats are unique because they are one of the oldest cat breeds. Abyssinians can be traced back to at least 4,000 years ago. Mummified cats found in ancient Egyptian tombs discovered by modern archeologists look similar to the modern Abyssinian. It is thought that their heritage goes back even further in history to their Asian origin. Abyssinian cats are also special for their large ears and distinct ruddy coat.
