Coat

The Somali has semi-long, fine and soft fur. The coat is shorter on the shoulders and there is a dark stripe running down the back, starting at the neck and ending at the tip of the tail. A shorter length of coat around the shoulders is accepted. The color is called jaspering or ticking, which means alternating dark and light bands in each hair. The belly and chest have a uniform reddish color. Somali's definitive color, which is a reddish one, can take a while to develop.

Taking Care of a Somali

The Somali's fur needs to be brushed at least twice a week to remove dead fur and prevent hairballs from forming in its stomach. Somali also need to move constantly, so provide environmental enrichment with plenty of room for play, high places with shelves, burrows and scratching posts. In addition, basic care such as brushing their teeth, proper nutrition and periodic consultations with the veterinarian are necessary.
