Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums.

Below is a picture of my best friend, Bekah, who is a short-hair purebred Somali. We got her when she was three, and she'll be four this summer.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! She may look a lot like an Aby, but she's a somali--she was a mommy in a breeding program (they outcross to Abys to increase the gene pool, but the longhair gene is recessive and she just didn't get it double-fold). Argh, that sounded long-winded... Anyway, thank you again! I've learned a lot from this website, enjoyed the stories you've shared--maybe someday I'll have something to offer, too.

Blaine, you certainly have something to offer. You're a cat lover, right? Please, come hang out with us in the Cat Lounge, discuss pressing issues in IMO, or share what knowledge you have with us in the Felines Companions Forums. We would love to get to know you, and you get to know many of us!

Ok Blaine , , I should of said any Shorthaired Somali or Longhaired Abysinnian is called a Abysinnian in New Zealand regardless of whether both parents are Somalis ,
