100 Years of Abyssinian Cat Breeding. Well.. this Abyssinian cat montage shows you how selective breeding has slimmed down the Abyssinian cat and enlarged the ears over a period of about 100 years. It seems that breeders in general prefer a cat’s shape to be something other than the normal. I strongly dislike oversized ears that are out of proportion to the rest of the cat.
