I also have an account with Flickr on which I publish more of my photos (I tend to restrict what I upload to deviantART to those with a bit more artistic or aesthetic merit).

I'm open to granting permission to older images which I've not set to be CC, so feel free to ask about a given image.

Hi!, I'd like to ask for your permission to use some of your abyssinian pictures for a project I've to do for university.

And, sorry for my ignorance, but what fur color has your abyssinian? It's difficult for me to difference between cream, sorrel and ruddy u_u

Hi, I'm happy for you to use them in your project!

I have photos of two Abyssinians. My newer photos are of my current Abyssinian, Theo. His breeder has recorded him as "chocolate". You can get variation in coat colours though - I think Theo is perhaps on the lighter end and perhaps a little more reddish in hue than some, although he's not as gingery as a sorrel would be.

My previous Abyssinian, Simba, was a "usual" which is called "ruddy" in America.

The UK breed profile has a range of colours - different cat clubs around the world may recognise less colours:…

There's a bit of information about the history of the colours here:

I hope that helps - if you have any more questions do ask!

I wanted to share with you the auction for the print of the abstract artwork I did with your stock photography.  

100% of the proceeds from the auction are going to go to a local, non-profit cat foster organization here locally.  I am making 0 profit, I am donating the purchase of the printing job so i won't even take a cut of the cost it was to have it printed.

The print came out gorgeous!  thank you so much for posting such wonderful images of cats.
