Photos of Bahraini Dilmun Cat

A slide show of about 60 photographs by Kathrin Stucki of the Bahraini Dilmun cat taken in the back garden of a house in Bahrain. You can read about this cat on this page (opens a new window so can stay on this page).Photos: copyright Kathrin Stucki.

This is an interesting and rare cat. It could be a formally recognised cat breed but is not. It is possibly a wild cat hybrid but if this cat is a wild cat hybrid the wild cat part is becoming diluted by cross-breeding with domestic cats or community cats that have no wild cat in them. It is only found in Bahrain an island state in the Middle East.

    • The Bahraini seems to be more purebred – less variation in coat color types. The Arabian Mau seems to be a slender version of the European random bred cat. I don’t know what variation in coat types you can see with the Bahraini Dilmun. There is one with a tabby and white coat in the slide show. The featured cat in the slide show looks more distinct as a “breed” than the Arabian Mau cats I saw.
