Series of side elevation drawings of Somali Cats in assorted postures

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.

Cats (Felis catus), often referring to as domestic or house cats, are small carnivorous mammals that are typically domesticated as pets by humans. First kept for the task of hunting mice, cats today remain popular pets because of their companionship. Cat breeds vary by origin, size, and coat types.
