News flash!


George has retired from our breeding program. He is the most delightful Abyssinian, very high on the Aby-ness scale and probably would suit a family. He is 6.5 years old and is desexed, microchipped, lifetime registered with the council and up to date with vaccinations. George is trained on a lead to walk in the garden and is looking for a loving indoor home that has secure screens on doors and windows. A person owned by an Aby before would be preferred, who is used to shoulder/back riding Abys and their various antics. We also have a 1 year old Tawny girl, Rey, who is very sweet and would love a caring family to take her into their home. She is very playful and sometimes a little shy of strangers. 

 Please contact us if you would like to know more about George or Rey.

Next litter planned for later in 2024/early 2025

Please contact us if you would like to go on the waiting list.

We are a very small scale breeder so that all our animals are able to receive the love and attention they deserve. We only have 2-3 litters of kittens over the whole year. When researching from where to adopt a pedigree Abyssinian kitten make sure you adopt one that is house born and raised. The implications for their socialisation and social referencing is huge and will affect them (and you) for the rest of their life.

Welcome to Swift Abyssinians' website.

We are located in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs, Australia. We are registered breeders with Cats NSW Inc. and follow their code of ethics.

We started showing our Abyssinian neuter, Cenglow Swift in 2005. By the end of that year we had decided that we wanted to breed Abyssinian cats and acquired our first queen, Nile Runcible Cat, Billie. Towards the end of 2006 we purchased Tijah Dakota Red who was our first stud cat. Jazz followed who was a fantastic addition to our showing and breeding program. Jazz was the Abyssinian Breeder Exhibit of the Year in 2008 and a CCCA Champion. He performed very well on the show bench being awarded multiple Best in Show awards as well as receiving the higher award of Best Exhibit. Jazz was the Abyssinian Breeder Cat of the Year for 2010. In 2018, we have entered a new era with our studs: Swift Taj Burrow, Cenglow Rapid and 'George'. Taj was Supreme Cat at the 2018 & 2019 Abyssinian Breeder Show while Swift Abyssinians was most successful breeder.

2022 brought more changes to our breeding program with Taj's son, Swift Feel The Rhythm to be a future stud. 'Billy' from WillowPark Abyssinians and 'George' complete the Swift stud line up. Our future queens include Swift Blondie, a Fawn, and little Blue up and comer, Swift Lilli Pilli. In 2024, we welcomed Swift Jorge Lorenzo, George's son, who will take over stud duties from his dad.

Swift Abyssinians aim to breed active, healthy Abyssinian cats with good temperaments as pets. Also, we hope to produce some breeding and show quality cats. We raise our kittens in our home so they get all the love and attention they need. It also means they are exposed to the noise of washing machines, vacuum cleaners and people coming and going. When cats leave our home they are microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas. Our cats and kittens are inside pets and new owners are reminded that they are not to be let outside unsupervised or left to roam. Being an inside pet does not deprive cats of a good life; it prevents them from being lost, stolen or run over and protects the wildlife.

All breeding cats are PRA normal and PK deficiency free.
