Somali Cat

The Somali cat, nicknamed the “fox cat,” is described as a long-haired African cat. The nickname stems from its appearance: a bushy-tailed cat with large pointed ears and almond-shaped eyes. It is a medium-sized cat with a slender body and triangular head. The hair of the Somali cat is very fine and soft to the touch with four and twenty colors can be found on each hair. Ultimately, there are 28 different colors of Somali. Personality-wise the Somali cat is generally enthusiastic and full of curiosity, willing to play with others but also on its own.

The typical Somali Cat has an overall height of 8.0”-10.0" (20-25 cm) and body length of 11.0”-14.0” (28-36 cm). An average Somali weighs between 9-12 lb (4-7 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 12-15 years.
