Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is a statuesque breed with her muscular, vividly spotted coat and gooseberry green eyes. The Mau, the Egyptian word for cat, is highly intelligent. She adores toys and will stalk anything that moves. A loyal, constant companion, this feline prefers being the only pet in a household as she does not readily adapt to other cats or dogs.
Living Considerations
  • Prefers being the only pet
  • Not hypoallergenic
Did you know?
Extremely athletic, the Egyptian Mau has been clocked running more than 48 km/hr, making her the fastest breed of domestic cat. A unique flap of skin extending from the flanks to the back knee gives this breed greater agility and length of stride than other breeds.
