---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

Abyssinian

Cat Breeds

MetPet.com

The Abyssinian is a domestic cat breed with a characteristic ticked or agouti coat.  Ticked or agouti means that each individual hair, from base to tip, has 2-3 different bands of color.  Abyssinian coats have the darkest band at the tip of the hair with the lightest band at the base.  Abyssinia, from which the breed gets it's name, is now known as Ethiopia.  In France the breed is known as Abyssin, in Germany as Abessinier and in Holland as Abessijn.

The modern Abyssinian is a medium-sized cat, with a long and slender build, large triangular ears, a moderately wedge-shaped head, a short, dense coat and a long tail.  The traditional Abyssinian color is known as Ruddy which is a burnt-red/orange/sienna color.  Today, there are a number of accepted colors both in the UK and the US including Ruddy, Red, Blue and Fawn.  The Somali, another recognized breed, is the long-haired version of the Abyssinian. 

The Abyssinian is generally regarded as an active, intelligent and playful cat.  It can be strong willed and requires attention and enough room to roam the house and be amused. 

The Abyssinian has been known as a breed in the UK since 1889 and was brought to the US a decade later.  It's origins may lie in pet cats brought from Ethiopia by the families of British soldiers during a short skirmish there in the 1860s or by deliberate breeding by cat fanciers in the UK.
