Breeder of Non-Dilute Abyssinians

PureAbby is a CCA and CFA Registered Abyssinian Cat Breeder and a current member of the CFA Abyssinian Breed Council.

We are located in the Caledon Hills just north of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. We are intentionally a small Cattery which allows us to provide our cats and kittens with individualized care, love, and attention. We are not a cattery that uses cages. We are focused on breeding healthy, well-adjusted, athletic abyssinian cats with exceptional temperaments. Our Abyssinian program includes Ruddy and Cinnamon (Red) colors. We do not carry any dilute colors in our cattery.

Our cats are part of our family – and it is a rather large family! In addition to cats, we have 2 dogs, horses, and chickens. Our cats are born in our home and begin their socialization at an early age. There are a couple of aunts and an uncle who have made it their business to socialize and entertain the kittens as they grow up.  We keep our kittens until they are 4 months old, at which time they are ready to go to their forever homes.

Unfortunately, Abyssinians are not known for their large litters. As a result, PureAbby Cattery does have a waiting list for kittens. If you are interested in finding out more about our cats and wish to be on our waiting list, please contact us.
