The 2008 study "The Ascent of Cat Breeds: Genetic Evaluations of Breeds and Worldwide Random-bred Populations" by Lipinski et al. conducted at UC Davis by the team led by leading feline geneticist Dr Leslie Lyons found that the Abyssinian has a low level of genetic diversity, a heterozygosity value of 0.45 within a range of 0.34–0.69 for all breeds studied, and has genetic markers common to both Southeast Asian and Western breeds indicating that cats from both Asia and Europe were used to create the breed.

She was an indoor/outdoor cat and loved to bring us gofers and mice and snakes. She was also good at catching moths and flies and eating them. Although regarded as comparatively obscure in the past as a breed compared to others, the Abyssinian ranked in 2016 among the top five most popular breeds by The Cat Fancier Association and The International Cat Association. [3]

The Abyssinian is a slender, fine-boned, medium-sized cat. The head is moderately wedge-shaped, with a slight break at the muzzle, and nose and chin ideally forming a straight vertical line when viewed in profile. They have alert, relatively large pointed ears. The eyes are almond-shaped and are gold, green, hazel or copper depending on coat color. The legs tend to be long in proportion to a graceful body, with small oval paws; the tail is likewise long and tapering. After a long fight against the grim reaper, our Abbycat finally gave in. Her vet did all she could but to no avail. So Adam and I were on our way home tonight from the Josh Ritter show (so, so good) and saw a bunch of Abby-like figures in the driveway to my house. I think that there had to have been at least 7 of them. An entire family. Old home week or something.

The source of the name is because the first "Abyssinians" exhibited in shows in England were reported to have been imported to England from Ethiopia, whose name was formerly Abyssinia. However, its true origin — according to genetic studies — is likely to have been the coast of the Indian Ocean in parts of Southeast Asia, and its introduction to Abyssinia (and others) was through colonialists and merchants stopping through Calcutta. [4] With their interest in playing with their owners combined with their curious intelligence, Abyssinians are known as the "Clowns of the Cat Kingdom". [3] They have an active, outgoing nature, yet tend to be quiet cats. They have soft chirrup-like vocalizations which do not sound like the expected "meow". They are affectionate and friendly toward people. Highfield, Roger (31 October 2007). "Cinnamon the cat could offer hope to the blind". The Daily Telegraph.

I'd hoped to keep more original parts--the cranks which have the nice detail of Raleigh herons integrated into chain ring (but with 44 teeth wasn't suitable for fixed gear with 20" wheels)--and the fork which with 26tpi would make headset installation problematic (notice the nylon bushing Raleigh used at top of head tube in lieu of bearings).
