The Somali, also known as Fox cat, is often referred to as the "cat with the smiling face," which is just one of its charming traits. They are medium-sized cats that pride themselves on being of an alien type, and are known for being both highly intelligent and incredibly beautiful. They thrive around people and form strong bonds with their owners. The Somali is also known for having a real zest for life, which makes living with one of these fierce-looking cats very enjoyable. However, those looking to share a home with a Somali will need to register their interest with breeders, as well-bred kittens are hard to find.
