Abyssinian Cats!!

When I first saw the pets that came in the Sims 3, I was really disappointed that they all looked...well...WEIRD! So this may be the start of remaking different cat breeds and adding some that are missing. I started with Abyssinians, but I'm probably not going to go in a specific order, I just like Abys and Somalis (Which are basically long-haired Abys) so I started with the easier of the 2.
Breed Info from TICA. They are one of the organizations that arrange cat shows and registers breeders, so I decided to use their information for my cats.

The 4 TICA accepted coat colors for Abys are included and I tweaked and adjusted each of them separately so that they don't just look like different colors of the same coat. Even though Aby markings are so similar that game markings are extremely limiting, I tried my best and think they came out well. :D

Coat Colors:
  • Blue
  • Cinnamon
  • Fawn
  • Ruddy

The Eyes are CC, and I went a bit wild with the colors, but I really don't like the default eyes and Traelia did so well on their replacement set.

The cat personality traits are all blank, there are not accessories on the cats, they're all set to male, and they area all named after their coat colors with the last name "Abyssinian" so that you may exercise your creative freedom. Just don't re-upload the cats after you've added these things. Enjoy these lovelies and happy Simming!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
