When we bought our cat (she is four years old now) we were told she is half Maine Coon and half Somali. What bothers me is, I see some Maine coon in her, but I believe that she is half Abyssinian. I heard, and I may be wrong, that a Somali is really just a long-haired Abyssinian. My cat, Molly, (oh, she is really beautiful!) does not have long hair at all. Especially the tail. It is not all long and fluffy like a Somali. She has the beautiful almond eyes and ticked color...oh, she's a ruddy color. I guess it just confuses me, but that is what the receipt said when we bought her. (Molly's mama was the Somali, and daddy the Maine coon.) Any insights, please?
