The name Algerian cat is an old name for the Abyssinian cat. This begs the question why? It is thought that the Abyssinian cat, an ancient breed of cat originates from areas that are near to the Indian Ocean, which is on the east side of Africa. Algeria is located on the northeastern boundary of Africa. This is some 2000 kilometers from the nearest possible country of origin Egypt.

Anyway it seems that at one time it was thought that the Abyssinian could have originated from Algeria or it was just a nice name that evoked the color of the Abyssinian cat.
