The Wonderful Loving and Intelligent Somali Cat!

by Sue

My Somali cat is a wonderful, loving and people orientated cat! He walks on a leash, takes showers with me and always loves to kiss and give head-butts! He can open drawers and he even likes to eat pizza!

I have never seen a more loving, playful and intelligent breed! When we take him in the car; he sticks his head out the window like a dog!

Just a wonderful little guy that loves life and people! People are always amazed how much he liked to walk on his leash; but it just comes naturally to him! If you think that cats are aloof then you have never met a Somali cat!


Hi Sue… I would love to see your boy. If you have a picture or can get one please email me at:

For those who are unsure a Somali is a long haired Abyssinian cat.

I love them too

Hi Sue. I couldn’t agree more – Somalis are loving and wonderful cats. Also to me they are the best looking cats around, but that point of view is probably down to the fact that I once have had one myself. 😉

If you search for ‘Ivanhoe’ here on the site you’ll find his photos. His story had a sad ending, but I’ll drop that for now and only think of the good memories.

Besides the qualities you list, I have found Somalis to be curious and totally fearless. And they focus 100 percent on whatever they are doing. When they’re playing nothing can distract them from that – and the same when they feel it’s time for cuddling. No stopping until they say so.
They very much have a mind of their own, but as you say – not aloof in any way. They are very affectionate and in a family they’ll choose their human and bond very strongly.

They are active cats and crave a lot of attention, but for people who can offer that, the Somali is definitely a good choice.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment written by visitors. It is a way visitors can contribute to animal welfare without much effort and no financial cost. Please comment. It helps this website too which at heart is about cat welfare.

As the picture shows, Somalies are very curious and totally fearless. So of course – we always checked to see where Ivanhoe was, before anything was turned on. 😉
