This makes the Abyssinian look statuesque. There is another photo in this gallery that also has that flavour. I think it is suitable because it reminds me of the ancient Egyptian statues of cats that look remarkably like the Abyssinian cat. This is a cat that has long legs. It is a slender cat breed and the Egyptian cat statues have long legs. See the original photo on Flickr – I have adjusted it a bit. I think I have improved it.
