Abbyssinian Profile

General :
Colorful cat with distinctly ticked coat, medium in size and regal in appearance. Lithe, hard and muscular. Well balanced temperamentally and physically.
Head :
Modified, slightly rounded wedge without flat planes: the brow, cheek, and profile lines all showing a gentle contour. A slight rise from the bridge of the nose to the forehead, which should be a good size, with width between the ears and flowing into the arched neck without a break.
Muzzle :
Not sharply pointed or square. The chin should be neither receding nor protruding. Allowing should be made for jowls in adult males.
Alert, large, and moderately pointed: broad, and cupped at base and set as though listening.
Eyes : almond shaped, large, brilliant, and expenssive. Eyes accentuated by fine dark line, encircled by light colored area.
Medium long, lither and graceful, but showing well developed muscular strenght without coarseness.
Legs and feet :
Proportionately slim, fine boned. Paws small, oval, and compact. Toes: five in front and four behind.
Tail :
Thick at base, fairly long and tapering.
Coat :
Soft, silky, fine in texture but dense and resilient to the touch with a lustrous sheen.
