About Abyssinians cats

Abyssinian cats are amongst one of the most popular cat breeds in the world. This is because they are such a breeze to have in the home. Easy to care for, very friendly and totally gorgeous, the Abyssinian cat breed can't be described as anything short of a joy.

You are unlikely to find an Abyssinian cat curled up quietly out of the way. Instead, these active cats will take an interest in any task you do with an utterly charming curiosity.

If they aren’t affectionately by your side, they are probably off exploring any and every hidey hole in the house they can find! An Abyssinian cat is a loving companion who will help you enjoy the lighter side of life.

Benefits of fresh cat food for Abyssinian Cats

Like all cats, Abyssinians can enjoy many benefits when regularly fed fresh cat food. Switch to fresh and see these improvements:

● Improved weight management

● Better digestion

● Shinier, healthy coats

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.

At KatKin we are demanding better. We provide fresh cat food made with 100% premium ingredients. All our recipes are formulated by vets to ensure they are nutritionally complete.  Switch fearlessly to KatKin with your Abyssinian and see the benefits for yourself.
