Green Valley, AZ
15 yr old ruddy male Abyssinian named Ramses.
"I'm a handsome Abyssinian who is looking for a new home due to the recent loss of my long time guardian. Im declawed, neutered, and up to date on all my shots. They say I'm quite mellow and healthy for a 15 year old. I have a Maine Coon buddy, Zuni, who is also looking for a home. We'd like to be together since weve been bonded for our entire life and we just couldnt bear the thought of another loss." Animal League of Green Valley - second time is a charm, they finally found a good home

Phoenix, AZ
8 yr old ruddy male Abyssinian (CraigsList). "We have an adult (approximately 8-9 years old) Abyssinian kitty that needs a new loving family and home. He is extremely loving and cuddly and always wants to be around people. We have a 2 year old and another baby on the way and unfortunately for him, my children come first. He really needs a true cat lover for an owner, someone that would appreciate his strong personality! He is super sweet and very loyal to his owners. He does well with my daughter, has never shown any signs of aggression towards her, but is obviously afraid of her and runs away if she tries to pet him. He is excellent with older children though. CraigsList - Owners were helped by So. Calif. Aby Rescue to find a way to fit him into their busy household and they are all happy now together. :-)

Glendale, AZ
Adult ruddy male Abyssinian named Harold.
"Harold is easy going, independent at times, a loving kitty that wants to be part of your family and home. He looks just like a mountain lion in real life. Strikingly handsome and ready for a permanent home. Harold is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered." Uncle Jacks Cats (& Dogs)

Fallbrook, CA
Senior blue neutered male Abyssinian named Pavlo. "VERY healthy, just had a dental and loves his people. He looks more like a mountain lion then a cat. He did have some teeth pulled because of the neglect he suffered before. He loves to sleep on the foot of the bed and loves wet food as a snack. Adoption fee $50." Rescue Me - California Abyssinians, Doggies Inc.

Redding, CA
4 year old ruddy spayed female Abyssinian named Xena. "This gorgeous and exotic purebred Abyssinian came to us from horrible circumstances and we have had her and 3 other related cats for over a year. These poor babies were forced to live in tiny cages, stacked one on top of the other and never cleaned. As you could imagine they came to us with some serious health issues, but nothing that couldn't be cured with medication, proper diet, and a clean environment. This girl probably suffered the most but as you can see now, she is happy and healthy. Xena is about 3 to 4 years old, very friendly and sweet but if you know the breed, they can be quite active, almost wild in nature sometimes. Zena resembles a miniature cougar, with that lithe, muscular body structure. Anyone who adopts this precious girl will be very lucky. If you'd like to find out more about the breed, please do some research before applying. Xena is NOT good with other cats or dogs. IF you have questions, feel free to call our Executive Director, Janie Hopper at 530-276-9364 (evenings after 6 p.m. are best)." Rescue Me - California Abyssinians, Resq Animal Coalition

Whittier, CA
Adult fawn spayed female Abyssinian named Samantha aka Sammy. "Sammy, that is short for Samantha, but I prefer Sammy. I am a ten year old fawn girl and I just want to be loved. I can sit next to you while you are doing whatever humans do and be very happy. While you are doing that I will just relax and be my beautiful self. My purrfect home would be with a single person that is very quiet. I am very fortunate for my foster mom and dad because my life would have been very difficult without them. I am declawed on all four paws, am deaf and have an auto-immune skin condition which requires a simple pill every day. If you want to take me home then visit the web page." Southern California Abyssinian Rescue

Pleasanton, CA
5 yr old declawed ruddy spayed female Abyssinian named Alice.
"Alice is such a different girl than the one who came into rescue 4 months ago. For the first couple of months, anytime Alice did not agree with her foster mom leaving the room or getting too near her when she was eating, she would attack her foster mom's feet and lower legs. We see this with upset declawed cats at times. But Alice has moved beyond where she was. With patience and time, Alice has become the girl she is today. Now she comes into the house, follows her foster mom around, lays near her or sits in her lap when she watches TV. Alice allows kissing, hugging on her terms and petting while she is eating. She is a talker so be prepared to carry on a conversation. Alice eats high quality, grain free cat food and does better on canned food than dry food, which unsettles her stomach at times. Her foster mom is happy to talk to potential adopters about the best diet for Alice. Alice is not a cat for everyone. She should not be in a home with young children and really likes men, although she has become very close to her foster mom. She would prefer to be an only cat or with another calm girl and would probably do well with a gentle dog. Weighing in at 13 1/2 pounds, Alice is FeLV/FIV negative/negative, current on vaccinations, micro chipped and litter box perfect." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Los Angeles, CA
2 yr old ruddy spayed female Abyssinian named Ravenna.
"Ravenna is a 2 year old ruddy Abyssinian. Ravenna needs to be kept on a raw food diet as she is prone to gaining weight and also having some intestinal issues if she doesn't get a good quality food. She really loves a cooked diet too. She is ultra affectionate like many Abys are and wants to be with you helping you in any way possible. She gets along with dogs and some cats. If you are interested in meeting her please contact us for an application and we can tell you more about this wonderful girl." New Homes 4 Animals

Davis, CA
8 yr old cinnamon neutered male Abyssinian named Otis.
"Hi, I'm Otis, a gorgeous red Abyssinian boy who is very sad right now because my owner passed away. I had been with her my whole life and we really loved each other. Right now I am living with my owner's son, who is very concerned about finding the right home for me. I have been with him for 8 weeks and if I do say so myself, I have adapted very well to my new environment. Being an Aby, I play a lot and even though we are not known to be lap cats, I do nap in laps from time to time. I enjoy people and love to be petted and will reward you with rubs and head butts. Oh and I will want to sleep with you. If you have been around an Aby boy, you will know we are very loving and want to be with our owners. You will be happy to know that I have no destructive habits, like scratching inappropriately or spraying and am strictly an indoor boy. Hey, you never know what dangers lurk outside. I lived with another cat at my owner's house. Even though we didn't play together, we still respected each other and I have to admit it was nice to have someone else around for company. But if you have another gentle cat, be sure to introduce us slowly, please. Recently, I went to the vet and I'm a healthy boy. All my vet records will come with me to my new owner. Are you the lucky person that I will share my life with?" Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Pleasanton, CA
9 yr old ruddy male Abyssinian named Sir Tut. Owner was older and could not live on his own anymore, so Sir Tut ended up in a "shelter" then rescued from there by Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue after losing a lot of weight and being very unhappy there, poor guy. Is now lots better! :) 8.5 lbs and a bit picky about his food, but reasonable. He is less reasonable about other cats, so needs to go into a home that has a cat-friendly gentle dog, or only-cat home. He has many good years of life left! Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Los Angeles, CA
7 yr old cinnamon male Abyssinian named Riley. "Riley is the most gorgeous color, a flaming red rather than the more subdued one that we have seen in rescue. He is very loving and extremely devoted to his person but does NOT want to share with another cat and can become fiery in their presence. He recently has taught himself how to use the toilet. He has not had health problems - he recently had a dental and has lost all the babyfat he had when he came into rescue and is ready to find a home." New Homes 4 Animals

Santa Cruz, CA
2 yr old blue female Abyssinian named Apples. "What a beautiful little treasure she is. We have no info about how Apples came to be in the So California shelter where we found her. She arrived with a rather rough coat so we have been giving her high quality food, baths and flea med's. She probably is allergic to fleas. She grows more lovely by the day. Her blue coat has peachy overtones which are very becoming and go with her beautiful green eyes that set off her colors so perfectly. She is a lovely, playful friendly young girl. She LOVES attention and will make her pleasure known with much purring and rubbing of her head all over you. She is such a nice little girl. She has a tender heart and sweet nature. Apples is friendly to other cats although we don't know about dogs I would guess she would probably be ok with them. She could gain a few ounces but seems to be in good health. Her finely detailed Aby body and delicate almost elfin feet are a delight to watch as she prances around. She eats wet and dry and is litterbox perfect. We do NOT ship cats. We will place cats out of area but you must arrange to come and meet your new friend in person." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

San Diego, CA
Senior cinnamon female Somali (longhaired Abyssinian).
"Gorgeous purebred spayed female Somali cat available to home with no other cats. Prefer home with quiet older person or couple, she had never been around young kids or a real noisy household. Have had her for several years and she is not happy living with my other cats, wants to be queen of her own domain! She is *extremely* affectionate with people, a total lap cat. Beautiful cinnamon color, looks like a little fox. Somali cats are basically a longhair Abyssinian. I will be very particular about who she goes to so be prepared to tell me about yourself, household, etc. The photos here are kind of old, her fur is longer and more full." Craigslist - Southern California Abyssinian Rescue helped the owner to place this beautiful girl

Vacaville, CA
5 yr old cinnamon female Abyssinian named Ali.
"Ali was surrendered to rescue in April of this year when her owners moved and could only have one cat in their new home. Ali is a delightful, beautiful clear red color, petite and friendly Abyssinian. She weights under 6 lbs. She will delight you with her athletic feats. Her perfect adoptive home would be indoors with adults (maybe also older respectful children), where she can be a part of her family, helping you on the computer, cooking, styling your hair, sleeping with you or whatever she may want to be involved with. Ali is shy around dominant cats and would be happiest being an only cat or with another calm cat. Ali is healthy, current on vaccinations, spayed, FELV/FIV neg/neg, and micro-chipped and litter box perfect." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Davis, CA
6 yr old blue male Abyssinian named Rickoshay.
"Rickoshay, aka Ricky, is a purebred blue Abyssinian boy. His original family purchased him from a breeder at the age of 5 months, and until recently he led a very happy life, which for an Abyssinian means being totally involved with his family. Then one day a ride in his carrier meant something far worse than a visit to the vet for shots: Ricky's family was moving into a "No Pets" apartment, and Ricky was abandoned at a shelter. Ricky is a big boy and very handsome. He is beautifully coated and has stunning gold eyes. Like most Abys, he is never far from your side, and yes, he will sleep in the bed with you. By day, he is curious and playful. Ricky would be best as an only cat or with a very docile companion kitty. He is fully vetted, altered, tested, and microchipped." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Vacaville, CA
4 yr old blue male Abyssinian named Mr. Blue Boy.
"Mr. Blue Boy came into rescue when his owner died. He sleeps with his foster mom, next to her under the covers. He follows her around the room and of course typical of an Abyssinian has to help her put on her make up, brush her teeth and pick out her clothes for the day. He talks to her while she is in the shower and sits on her while she reads at night. But someone meeting Blue for the first time will not see this wonderful, loving boy. In a new environment it will take a while for Blue to come around and feel comfortable with his person, but by putting in the time by being patient, you will be rewarded with a wonderful, loving companion for years to come. Mr. Blue Boy needs to be a single cat. When in the room by himself he is out all the time and is an interactive member of his foster home. Mr. Blue Boy will come to you healthy, altered, FELV/FIV negative, current on vaccinations and microchipped." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Los Angeles, CA
7 yr old cinnamon male Abyssinian named Riley.
"Riley is the most gorgeous color, a flaming red rather than the more subdued one that we have seen in rescue. It matches his temperament. He is very loving and extremely devoted to his person but does NOT want to share with another cat and can become fiery in their presence. He needs to find a home without any other animals. He recently has taught himself how to use the toilet. He will take some time to acclimate to a new home and so wants a nice calm existence, with lots of bird watching and interactive play with his new person." New Homes 4 Animals

Pittsburg, CA
2 year old ruddy female Abyssinian named Magnolia. "Magnolia was a pregnant stray that was trapped in Richmond. She delivered her beautiful babies who have all found homes and went on to take many other homeless babies under her wing. Now it is her turn - she is looking for an only cat household where she can reign as queen. She is a beautiful Abyssinian - approximately one year old. Of course she is spayed, has her shots, free of fleas and parasites, has a microchip, and carries 30 days of FREE insurance. Magnolia could go into a foster to adopt situation if you needed time to get to know her. She is currently in foster care in Pittsburg, CA and shown for adoption at the Concord Pet Food Express by appt. Noesark Animal Network & Cat Support Network

San Diego, CA
Adult cinnamon female Abyssinian named Abby.
"I adopted Abby after her original owner had to move; now I must move and cannot take her with me. She is an Abyssinnian and was originally purchased for $500.00. She is hilarious and has crossed-eyes. She would do best in a home with no more than one other cat. She is a lot of fun and needs a lot of love and attention. Please only respond if you will be able to love her like crazy!" Craigslist -- Southern California Abyssinian Rescue found a good home for her. :-)

Vacaville (Pleasanton), CA
5 yr old female cinnamon Abyssinian named Ali.
"She was surrendered to rescue when her owners moved and could only have one cat in their new home. Ali was pretty upset by all the changes in her life but that is behind her and she is ready to go to her forever home. Ali is delightful, a beautiful clear red color, petite and friendly. She weighs all of 5lbs. 11oz. She will delight you with her athletic feats and carry on a conversation with you. Her perfect adoptive home would be indoors with adults (maybe also older respectful children), where she can be a part of her family, helping on the computer, cooking, styling your hair or whatever she may want to be involved with. She would be happiest as an only cat or with one other calm cat." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

San Francisco, CA
5 year old ruddy female Abyssinian named Sadie. "Sadie is a five year old purebred Abyssinian and is just about the cutest we have ever met. She is extremely affectionate and has a wonderful personality. At her foster home she currently lives with one dog and three cats. We think she could do well being the only cat or the only other pet in a household. She very much likes to sleep, eat, and follow her pet humans around the house "helping" them with various chores. Be warned, she loves catnip! She has been diagnosed with IBD and is currently on a prescription diet and anti-inflammatory medication that is working well for her. We are confident that if Sadie found a loving home who can keep up with her medical needs, she would make a wonderful, fun, and loyal companion. She is in great health other than her IBD. IBD care cost is about $70 a month for food and medicine. Part of her adoption fee will be transferred directly into prescription food and medicine to get you started. If you are looking for an Abyssinian who is well-mannered, outgoing, affectionate, social, and cute as a button then Sadie might make a good choice! She is fostered in San Francisco. Email us an application to come meet her today." Wonder Cat Rescue

"TBird is exceptionally sweet and does not have an aggressive bone in her body. She is in foster care because she was not happy with the other cats in her home.

Julie will come to her forever home with vaccinations current, microchipped and spayed. She is fostered in Pleasanton. Please Note: To the right home, a tax deductible donation will be accepted in lieu of the standard adoption fee." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Union City, CA
9 yr old
blue male Abyssinian named Eeyor. "Eeyor came into foster care because his owner died. He went to live with the mother's daughter and her two male Abyssinians and unfortunately the pairing wasn't meant to be. Eeyor had been an only cat for many years and was used to all the attention so being at the bottom of a 3 cat hierarchy didnt work. At the top of Eeyors list for a new owner is someone that will love him as his first owner did. He will happily return the love. Eeyor will be where you are. If you sit he will climb in your lap. If you let him, he will lay across the keyboard if you are on the computer. He loves to be petted and purrs with delight. Eeyor had the teeth problems so many Abyssinians have and his teeth were removed due to Stomatitis at 8 months of age. He does fine eating both canned and dry food. He will drink water out of a bowl but loves the running water fountains that are out for animals. He is friendly, loves to play and is very cuddly. Oh, he even likes to sit on shoulders. Eeyor is neutered, current on shots, and FIV/FELV negative." Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

Los Angeles, CA
4 yr old ruddy female Abyssinian named Zena.
"This moving from home to home is getting quite tiresome for me.  I really would like to have a furrever home with someone to just love and accept me for the beauty queen that I am.  A home where I can play, look out the window, eat, sleep; is this too much to ask?  I am a good listener and office helper. My foster person lets me knock pencils off the desk all the time.  Look deep into my eyes and realize  you are falling... in... love... with... me.  Oh, yes, I am four years young and spayed.  Let me live with you and I won't let you down."

Adult ruddy neutered male Abyssinian named Copper. "'Find a penny pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck.' You've heard that one, right? Well clearly, I'm the shiny copper penny that you should be picking up! My name is Copper and I am a striking guy if I do say so myself. I sure hope that you are looking for your personal lucky penny because I am it! I arrived at MaxFund after having been found at a bank. Ironic really, given the whole penny thing. Alas, some nice folks brought me to MaxFund, where I had a bit of a rocky start. You see, I am what is known as a feral cat, meaning that I have not spent much time around humans and am not quite sure what people are all about. Over time here at the shelter I've learned a lot and I am coming around at my own pace to this new way of living. I have to say, I'm quite fond of living indoors and being well taken care of, though I still have some learning to do with respect to interacting with people. While I may not be a cuddly lap cat, I am a great guy and I want to learn how to love people. I can promise you that I will give it my best effort and I ask that you do the same. With patience and time I just know that we'll be the best of friends. Just remember, you've found your penny you just have to pick it up, adopt it and take it home with you!"

Atlanta, GA

Bella Blue is an adult blue female spayed Abyssinian with beautiful green eyes found wandering around midtown Atlanta by two kind young ladies who then found us and brought her to us. Our vet did a physical exam, and although she voiced her objections, she was sweet natured and never offered to bite and enjoyed being petted. The vet agreed with us that the large sore on her neck was originally caused by food allergies and gave her a steroid shot to calm it down and allow it to heal. We added a gentle salve as well when she got here and gave her a grain-free food for now.

Some cats are allergic to grains (two of our pet cats are) and some are allergic to other things such as fish, chicken, or other meats in their food. It will take a while to figure out which one of these she is allergic to, but we have done this successfully before and feel sure we can help her fully heal too. As you can see from the picture on the right, she is getting a lot better in the biggest place where her skin was red and sore. The other sores are taking a bit longer to heal, but we think she will be all better soon. Then comes the process of figuring out how to keep her well and without sores.

Vet guesses her age to be 8 years old plus/minus a year. In great health, her teeth especially are in great shape. She is purring now instead of grumbling. :-)  Also, we are happy to announce that she is Feline Leukemia and FIV Negative! She got more medicine and is continuing to improve!

The microchip didn't help, as it was never registered further from the rescue that implanted it in Missouri (number was disconnected and Information didn't have another number for a rescue with anything similar to the name).

Bella Blue has now gone to her new home! She has a new diet and our ongoing support, as well as our gratitude to her new owner!

ruddy spayed female Abyssinian, formerly named Rocky. Baby's Irritable Bowel is still with her (she throws up occasionally) despite TLC and a special diet, so we may be taking her back if the new owner needs our help to find out the magic cure so she can have a long term solution (probably 1/4 Pepcid AC half hour before eating and twice weekly B12 shots). Baby gets along with other cats and everybody she meets, including children and is very affectionate. Found a great home for her and she is doing much better there.

This beautiful sealpoint Siamese female was rescued from a kill shelter in Augusta, GA after Animal Control found her wandering the streets.

1 yr old blue neutered male Abyssinian. He is Feline Leukemia Positive! "Jared has issues with his eyes and has limited vision but his spirit is very much intact.  This boy is such a character, he will do all sorts of tricks for attention.  He plays like no one's business.  He doesn't realize he is sick and besides his eyes, you can't tell either.  HELP will cover all his medical expenses for his lifetime. If you will just give him the chance he deserves, he deserves his own family." If you have other cats that are FeLV positive or want an only cat, Jared would make a wonderful companion.

3 year old blue female Abyssinian named Foxy. "My previous family is going to have a baby now and heard all these horror stories about cats and babies. They decided to donate us to Help For Homeless Pets so part of our adoption fee can help some of the other special kitties looking for homes. So my sister (Velvet) and I have to find a new home. We are good with other cats, kids and dogs too. We are looking for an indoor only home. We prefer somebody who is familiar with our breed. We are beautiful, sweet and well mannered kitties. Everybody who sees us just admire our soft fur coat and stunning eyes and color. We are both Declawed and spayed and current on our shots.

2 year old blue female Abyssinian named Fiona. "I am unfortunately forced to put my two wonderful cats, Juniper and Fiona, up for rehoming. I am moving from New Hampshire to New York City, and can not bring them with me. I will only place them together. Juniper, 7, is a big (~ 14 lbs) long haired white cat that brings a Maine coon cat to mind. Fiona, 2, is a small (~ 6 lbs) Abyssinian. Fiona is unaltered but I will only place with someone that will have her fixed. They are both affectionate and sweet, but are generally pensive around new animals, so I'd prefer them to go to a home with no other animals. They haven't been around kids much, but have been good with them when they have. I want to place them somewhere that they will have a lot of room to run around. They have always been indoor cats. Rehoming fee applies to ensure you're serious about them. I love my cats and will only put them in a good home." Craigslist

She is full of personality and generally has a great disposition! Pina is a great cat that deserves more love and attention than we can offer her now.Since the arrival of our baby and our full workload, she's not been the happiest cat and doesn't interact with us as usual-and has come to the point of hissing at visitors and at us and becoming a little more demanding in her personality. I would like to find her the right home to make her happy again. I'm sure once she has full attention and alot of love and time together, she will definitely offer you 100% aby love." Infinite Hope

Well, smart move--they are adjusting after having been dumped at the shelter, and are looking forward to a loving, compassionate and appreciative home. These beauties, a boy and a girl, both altered, vaccinated, microchipped and negative for felv and fiv, will be very special additions to the right home. They're ok with other pets, but prefer not to be amidst chaos. They're under a year, maybe about 8 months old.

7 yr old fawn female Abyssinian named Anya.

"Anya is a terrific, petite, 6 pound cat in perfect health (no meds, no special diet etc.).

She loves riding on your shoulder and basking in a sunny window. She has her claws, of course, and always uses the litter box. We got her as a kitten from an Abyssinian breeder so we have been her only owners.

We are also proud owners of a ruddy 8 year old male Aby who Anya has been very happy living and playing with. Anya could live with other cats and maybe even dogs (she has not lived with any dogs but seems comfortable with them when she has seen them at the vet).

Anya is in need of a home without children as she is very protective of children (we now have a newborn and a 19 month old toddler). She is terrific with kids coming to visit and has been wonderful around our 8 year old twin nephews, but a kid free home is what the baby girl needs! We will just be devastated to see Anya go, but know it will be a better long term solution for her.

Please email us if you have a good, cat lovin' new home. We are happy to fly Anya wherever necessary to find her a new home."

He doesn't need to lie directly on them, but prefers to sit at the foot of the bed. He spends the night sleeping in enclosed items, a tunnel or a bed with a roof.

Adult cinnamon male Abyssinian named Aengus. "Aengus is a shy boy that needs so time to warm up to people. Trust us it is worth the wait when he does.

2 year old ruddy female Abyssinian named Sheba. "I have a 2 year old spayed ruddy female abyssinian named Sheba,  that I can no longer take care of.  I am having family issues that keep me from being able to take care of her and feel it is in her best interest to find her another home.  She does have a couple of quirks you will have to deal with.  She does not like to be picked up or held.  She also has a very sensitive stomach and when she gets stressed she has loose stools.  Due to the issues that I am having it has disrupted her routine and she has started removing hair from her tail in several spots. She does not like other aby cats so I do not think she would do well with other abys, however, I do not know about any other type of cats.  I have only seen her get upset with seeing another aby.  She loves to play and will get up on me to be loved on.  She is very smart." Atlanta Abyssinian Rescue / Craigslist - Owner found a wonderful patient new person for Sheba.


Flower Mound, TX
Adult cinnamon neutered male Abyssinian named Bradshaw. "Meet Bradshaw. This handsome boy came to a shelter as a stray and appeared to have been on the street for awhile. Several vets have concurred that he is a full bred Abyssinian Red Sorrel. He does characterize all the habits and traits of that breed. Totally social and at home with kids, dogs, and cats. Wants to be with his people at all times. Will follow you around and be at your side when you are sleeping, watching TV or reading a good book. He will definitely make someone a wonderful companion and friend." Humane Society of Flower Mound

9 month old cinnamon male Somali (long-haired Abyssinian) named Raider.
" Raider is a nine month (DOB Feb 2010) old red somali kitten. He is fully vetted (neutered, FIV/FELV negative, up to date on vaccinations, has been wormed, microchipped and flea treated) and is ready for his forever home. Raider ended up in rescue after his breeder lost their house. This kitten is WONDERFUL! He is exceedingly outgoing, very affectionate and loving. Raider does have the HIGH energy level typical of this breed. This boy would do best as either an only cat OR with a younger, smaller female cat. Raider has some food sensitivity, so he absolutely must be fed California Natural Chicken & Brown Rice. The food is available at store retailers - so it's not expensive, nor is it hard to find." South Texas Persian Rescue

Richmond, VA
Beautiful 3 year old ruddy Abyssinian female.
"Three year old Abyssinian cat in need of good home. We are not the original owners, cat was left behind by previous roommate due to personal issues. We have been caring for it for about a year. Cat lives outdoors but can come inside and is litter trained. In good health, but have no records, from what we know she is up to date in all shots. Beautiful, smart cat with a lot of personality. Of rare origin and breed. Really hoping to find her a good home because quite frankly we are not cat people and have gave her nothing but love and shelter and food but with our new residence we can no longer take care of her without her being in danger of being attacked by the neighborhood stray cats or neighboring dogs. She has a few scratches on her ears because she recently got in a scuffle with another cat and we really don't want to have to make her stay in our small yard. We also have a free never used never opened LitterMaid self cleaning self litter box, approximately $130 value (another thing left behind by the roommate) for you to take as well. Please serious inquiries only. Thank you!" Craigslist

Arlington, VA
6 year old ruddy male Abyssinian named Rocky.
"Meet Rocky. This handsome, special needs kitty is very easy going and laid back. He loves attention and squeaks with joy when you pet him. His owners could not take care of him now that he is a known diabetic. They were going to put him to sleep but one of our veterinarians decided to foster him until we can find him a home. He will need insulin shots every day." Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, Inc.
(Please note: Some cats can recover from diabetes with a high protein, no grain diet (sponsored link to Amazon.com for a book that explains how entitled "Your Cat:Simple New Secrets to a Longer, Stronger Life" By Elizabeth M. Hodgkins, DVM). Like people, exercise and less calories resulting in best weight for size is also helpful. Look for 40% minimum protein in dry food & 10% minimum protein on side of can in canned food. Make sure to give your cat plenty of water either with a drinking fountain and/or canned food.)

Animal Allies Winchester -- Thanks to Animal Allies this beautiful girl was rescued and a good home was found for her quickly!

Merrifield, VA
8 yr old ruddy male Abyssinian named Max.
"Due to progressively worsening allergies, which have now caused me asthma like symptoms, I am reluctantly forced to find him a new home. Max is the most loving, affectionate cat I have ever come into contact with! He is laid back and not the most active of kitties, but he LOVES to snuggle. His favorite activities include cuddling on the coach, cuddling under the covers and drinking out of a running water faucet. He is not a picky eater and has never scratched, bitten or “missed” the litter box. Mr. T and Max have been together since they were kittens. They love each other and must be adopted together. Please limit enquiries to the Greater Washington, D. C. area." 4Paws Rescue Team

 8 yr old male ruddy Aby - "Brutus was transferred to our shelter from Virginia Beach Animal Control so we do not have much information about his past. He may take a few minutes to warm up to new people and should not be adopted into a household with children. Brutus would do best with a quiet adult family. We do not know how he behaves around other animals." Virginia Beach SPCA

12 yr old ruddy spayed female Abyssinian named Cynni.
"Hi I am Cynni! I am about 12 years old. However, if you watch me in action you'd think I was two. My beloved owner passed away and I would desperately love to be your new best friend. I am very sweet. I love to eat, play and be petted. Please say you'll give me a wonderful new home!" Whatcom County

Kirkland, WA
11 yr old blue neutered male Abyssinian named Ramses. "Ramses is a gorgeous blue Abyssinian born 10/1/02. He is an affectionate cat who loves people. He has a high energy level and needs a home in which he can run around to tire himself out, followed by a warm lap and cuddles with his people. He loves to be cradled like a baby, and he is thrilled by kisses! Ramses can be dominant with other cats, so we recommend a home where he can be the only cat. However, he gets along well with dogs given a proper introduction. He would make a good family cat in a home with older children. After being abandoned, Ramses was found in the backyard of a good Samaritan. He was weak and emaciated, and was suffering from a condition called Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which interferes with digestion. With help from MEOW he received the medical care he needed, and his condition is now well managed with a special diet and oral steroids. Now that he can absorb nutrients, he is healthier and more active than ever. While he is technically a senior cat, many people think he is a kitten when they first meet him. Ramses is currently in a foster home but if you would like to meet him or have questions, please call or email us, or come by the MEOW shelter in Kirkland." Meow Cat Rescue

Lynnwood, WA
12 yr old fawn female Abyssinian named Judy. "If your arms or lap are empty they won't be for long. Judy is a sweet, very affectionate 12 years young kitty with a heart of gold to match her fur. Easy with a purr and hard to put down, you won't wonder where your new companion is because she will be right at your side, if not on your shoulder. Judy has a heart murmur that needs a follow up evaluation. Come visit her at PAWS and she will have you saying "Judy, Judy, Judy. Where have you been all my life?" Judy's adoption fee is $75."

Seattle, WA
Adult ruddy male Abyssinian named Izzy. "Izzy the Abyssinian is a very active cat with lots of love to give. He's fairly health for a purebred, but suffers from IBD and will need to be kept on a strict diet to avoid flair ups. Email the rescue for more information on this condition. His foster dad reports no issues with Izzy's health on a venison diet. Izzy is good with other cats, but adores people the most. He gets along very well with kids enjoying their attention. He is a fairly active cat and as the picture shows, really likes to be at eye level with his people. Please email if you would like more information on a cat as this is the most efficient way for rescue personnel to communicate. Only call if email is not possible. Thank you for understanding." Seattle Persian and Himalayan Rescue

Seattle, WA
4 yr old ruddy male Abyssinian named Ducky. "I adopted Ducky, a retired 4 year old Abyssinian cat whose good looks and great temperament made him the genetic foundation of a breeding program, from a great breeder on the eastside a couple months ago, but he was never able to get over some aggression issues he had with my two female cats. He is a truly awesome cat who loves people. His breeder is aware of the issue and we've both been looking for a new home for him but haven't turned anything up, so I'm casting a wider net. He's currently living in my bathroom and gets all the attention I can spare, but he wants to be a part of the household badly. I'm asking a $100 rehoming fee."
The breeder has him now and found a great home for him.

Sammamish, WA
13 yr old blue Abyssinian male. " Good news in that we just got Slater back from the vet & the cat is no longer diabetic..we changed from an allergenic diet to a higher protein diet and his labs are now normal, plus he is not showing any signs of his old allergies. I am nearing retirement.  We are desperately looking for someone to adopt Slater. He would have to be an only pet as he is very territorial and does not tolerate other cats.  He is a beautiful and loving cat." National Abyssinian Rescue A local nurse adopted Slater.

Milwaukee (Franklin), WI
Three 10 yr old purebred Abyssinian cats.
"My parents have three female purebred Abyssinian cats that we "rescued" from an animal breeder about ten years ago. When we purchased them, the cats were stuck in a small cage, only handled when given medicine. Fast forward ten years....and the cats, while beautiful, still need a lot of tlc. My father just doesn't have the time or energy anymore to try to work with them. The only other option to someone adopting them from him is the humane society. The three cats are all in perfect health, all are sisters, all about 10.5 years old. One is slightly overweight but slight is the key. The cats are blue, ruddy, and red. These cats are gorgeous! All three are fixed, all three are litter box trained without an accident in years, but all three haven't been able to even be picked up in the time my parents have had them. However my parents haven't tried either, so we are talking about nonprofessional rehabilitates trying to rehabilitate three cats. Please understand these cats won't just disappear into your house, but also aren't lap cats unless you are skilled with them. They purr, they are friendly, just need more attention or a different type of attention. They have no experience with kids, and while in a house with dogs, the dogs were not hyper or chasing them. As I said these are purebred cats, very expensive if buying as kittens or cats.... And all we ask is they go to a loving house. The alternative is the humane society, and we fear the worst there."

Oshkosh, WI
3 yr old blue male Abyssinian named Baby Blue.
"BABY BLUE...is a gorgeous SHOW QUALITY BLUE ABYSSINIAN. He is neutered, has his claws, weighs a sleek 7.5 pounds and is 3 years old. For a long time things went well but gradually Baby Blue started harrassing some older female kitties in the house and is making life very difficult for them. It is in all the cats' best interests for Baby Blue to have a home of his own. He currently gets along superbly with another young male but does pick on one other male and both females. Baby Blue would do very well as an only kitty with a doting adult. He's so easy to spoil, forgive and love all the time. He would be fine with older children. His intensity would be too much for younger kids. He likely would do fine with a dog." Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue 262-654-0764

Whitefish Bay, WI (Milwaukee, WI)
8 year old male ruddy Abyssinian named Leo.
"We thought he would adjust to a puppy 2 years ago and did not. His life is not happy and he would be happier with a family on his own. We are looking for a good home for him. He is neutered and has all of his vaccines. He is in excellent health and has had regular teeth cleanings." A great home was found for him through this website! :-)

Young adult
male cinnamon Abyssinian named Ramsey. "Hi, I am here awaiting my forever home. I hope that it will be with you. Do you have room in your heart and home for me?" Sheboygan County Humane Society Ramsey's adopter says: "He is huge for an Aby. I don't care. He is a hoot! He has the Aby personality. Love him already.  The shelter was great. I can't believe what great care he received there. And thanks for helping me find him. I named him Riley as he will have the life of at my house. Also means (he's a) jovial guy that others want to take care of because he so nice."

Kenosha, WI
4 year old
cinnamon female Abyssinian named Rosie. "Rosie came to us from a vet clinic in northern Illinois. Her previous owners had left her there to be put down because they wanted to travel and  just didn't want to take care of a pet any more. The clinic refused to put Rosie down and she was signed over to them. In the course of their examination of her it was found that she had a painful eye ulcer that had never been treated and was in the process of rupturing the eye.  So one of Rosie's beautiful bright gold eyes had to be removed to save her further pain and infection. She is otherwise a perfectly healthy young cat and is not on any medications." Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue

We go through Petfinder and Adopt-A-Pet regularly looking through hundreds of listings every week that are listed as "Abyssinian" for purebred Abyssinians who are homeless in shelters, sometimes close to being euthanized. We also are on the National Abyssinian Rescue email list and put available Abys from it on this page. People contact us directly to ask for help in placing an Aby, too. We NEVER get a listing from an individual website trying to place a cat or kitten!

If you know of an Abyssinian who is in a shelter or in need of a new home, please contact us with the information and a photo. We will do our best to make sure the Aby gets a forever home as soon as possible by contacting rescue organizations in the area and listing the Aby on this page. If there is a correction or update, please contact us with that information also. Thank you for caring.
