The graceful Egyptian Mau is not only one of the prettiest cat breeds in the world, but also one of the oldest breeds of domestic cat known to man. What’s more, the Egyptian Mau is the only naturally spotted cat in existence. Numerous depictions of spotted cats can be seen in ancient Egyptian temples and scientists believe that the Mau’s ancestors were the exact same cats who were worshiped as gods in the ancient kingdom.

PERSONALITY

Apart from having a magnificent coat, Egyptian Mau owners and enthusiasts claim that the breed’s temperament and personality are what really stole their hearts. These cats are devoted to their humans and prefer being adored by their family than by complete strangers. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t friendly – they just choose their friends wisely. The Egyptian May is also very playful and loves participating in all sorts of feline games. They can be very loud, but their voices are sweet and melodious. They are wonderful companions, but these spotted felines are not for everyone. If you are, however, willing to dedicate a lot of time and love to the Egyptian Mau, the perks of owning this cat will be manifold.
