The Egyptian Mau is an ancient breed of Egyptian cat thought to be at least 3,000 years old! The Egyptian Mau is a medium-sized, short-haired cat and the Egyptian Mau is one of the only cats to be naturally spotted.
The Egyptian Mau is the fastest of all the domestic cats and has been known to reach speeds of 30 mph, making the Egyptian Mau a keen predator, probably due to the fact that the Egyptian Mau has longer back legs than most cats.
A pure-bred Egyptian Mau is fairly rare to find today as most has adopted attributes of other species. The Egyptian Mau is a descendant of the African wild cats and is well known for its intelligence.
The Egyptian Mau is a slender yet muscular breed of domestic cat making the Egyptian Mau both elegant and powerful at the same time. This, along with the well-known chattiness of the Egyptian Mau, makes them popular pets today.
As the Egyptian Mau is the only naturally spotted breed of domestic cat, the Egyptian Mau is often bred with other domestic cats in order to produce slightly spotted kittens.
