Egyptian Mau Breeder Directory

Egyptian Maus are a small-medium sized short-haired cat breed. Along with the Bahraini Dilmun Cat, they are one of the few naturally spotted breeds of domesticated cat. The spots of the Mau occur only on the coat. There are no spots on the actual skin. The spotted Mau is an ancient breed from natural stock; its look has not changed significantly as is evidenced by artwork over 3,000 years old. The Egyptian Mau is the fastest of the domestic cats, with its longer hind legs, and unique flap of skin extending from the flank to the back knee, providing for greater agility and length of stride. Maus have been clocked running over 36 mph (58 km/h)

Temperament

The Egyptian Mau has often been thought of as aloof and shy. To a certain extent, the breed can be, but the breed has a special affinity with its people. It is a close bond that is so different than with other breeds. A typical Mau will command your attention. It will not allow you to push it away, as it craves the touch of the special person(s) that are his and his alone. It is the center of your world, and the Mau knows that by this he takes over your life with his incredible, but gentle persistence of being the sole factor that has any reason for existing. The breed is intensely loyal and yet happy to go about his business of being a cat. But when it is ready for you, there is no stopping the love, attention, and adoration of the Egyptian Mau is going to bestow upon you.

Health

Taking care of Egyptian mau cats is easy. An occasional brushing and nail clipping is all that's needed to keep them clean. Like all cats, Egyptian maus look after most of their grooming needs on their own. They are moderate shedders. Any Egyptian mau breeder will tell you that these cats have abnormally high sensitivity to anesthetics. Pesticides and vaccines can also pose dangers. Beyond normal degenerative conditions seen in aging cats of all breeds, including feline inflammatory bowel disease and feline arthritis, these cats are generally healthy.
