Seeking a Warm Spot in Your Heart and on Your Lap

Seeking a Warm Spot in Your Heart and on Your Lap

Poe is a very affectionate and interactive cat. He will participate in any family discussion and be there to keep you warm. His vet believes he is an Egyptian Mau.

The Egyptian Mau is a lean, athletic cat with a history dating back at least 3,000 years. These cats are known and loved for their lively, outgoing personalities. Regal and intelligent, this rare breed is social and needs to be kept busy. Egyptian Maus tend to be affectionate and friendly with everyone, but they will likely select one member of their family to spoil with extra attention.

These bold, curious kitties love to engage in playtime and will impress you with their athletic abilities and lightning-fast reflexes. Some Egyptian Maus will even make a show out of leaping and jumping in the air. Undoubtedly, these energetic felines will make a lively addition to your family!

The Egyptian Mau is a medium-sized cat typically weighing between 6 and 15 pounds. They tend to have a lean, muscular build and a long tail. A runner’s build, you might say!

Coincidentally, many people liken Egyptian Mau cats to Cheetahs. Not only do they have spotted coats, but also the same flap of the skin leading from their belly to their hind knee. This skin flap is thought to increase their range of motion, enabling them to run faster and jump higher than the average cat. In fact, some Egyptian Maus have been tracked sprinting at speeds up to 30 miles per hour!

You may also note that the hind legs of Egyptian Mau cats are slightly longer than their front legs. Again, this helps improve their range of motion, making it easier for them to jump high in the air or run very fast.

You’re sure to be struck by the glowing, almond-shaped eyes of the Egyptian Mau. Their eyes are typically lined with black, making them stand out even more. Their triangular head features wide set mildly pointed ears, which contribute to their curious facial expressions.
The Egyptian Mau is a regal, intelligent cat. They are very loyal to their people and often bond most strongly with one particular person but are affectionate and loving with everyone in their family unit. They can be a little standoffish to strangers at first but will usually warm up quickly.
Generally, they may be a little shy at first and even run and hide, but given time, they will soon be approaching the stranger for a cuddle.
They are playful and have an endearing sense of humor, they often learn to retrieve toys thrown for them.

Poe is best suited for a household where he is the only animal or with another social feline.
