A-Z: Egyptian Mau
Mau's are descendants of wild African cats. The term Mau means cat. These felines are built like cheetahs. An extra skin flap makes them one of the fastest breeds and allows them to run up to thirty miles an hour. Their coats are naturally spotted but the spots are only on the edge of the fur. Their coat colors are silver, bronze and smoke. A black rim around the edge of their eyes accentuate their beauty and gives them the look of wearing mascara. Their moon-shaped eyes change as they mature.
These wonderful felines are very loyal and possessive of their owners (and toys).
They do shed. To help keep this down, stroke them with the foot of an old pair of pantyhose on your hand.
They have few health issues and can live past fifteen.
