Is My Cat Part Egyptian Mau? — 11 Comments

  1. We rescued a cat that came from Egypt. Here is a picture of her. Her fur is very different then any other cat have had. The only way I could discribe it would be that it is like bunny fur. She also has a belly flap, and can jump from the floor to above our kitchen cabinets.

  2. Hi Justine. Beautiful cat. She has a face which does bring to mind the face of the Egyptian Mau – slender and elegant. She looks as if she comes from Ancient Egypt 🙂 as she is statuesque.

    But she’ll be a random bred cat almost certainly. She may have some Egyptian Mau genes but I have to be honest and say that this is unlikely too. Non-purebred cats do vary quite a lot in their appearance and your sweet female has an elegant appearance but this does not mean that she is purebred.

    P.S. Today, in Egypt you’ll see random bred Egyptian Mau street cats. They are slender tabby cats. The Egyptian Mau that we see on the internet are American purebred show cats. There is no real connection between the two.

    Thanks for uploading the photo and commenting and sorry if my comment sounds harsh. It is not meant to be.

  3. This is my kitten!! She’s about 7 months old and such a big girl!! She’s obviously a dilute calico, but my boyfriend and I feel like she has some egyptian mau in her. We were wondering if anyone knew what breed she might be! She’s such a cute and sweet girl with a very bold personality.

  4. We rescued this little kitten from a shelter and we’re trying to figure out what breed she is. Can you help please??

    • Hello Elizabeth, your beautiful rescue cat is a slightly diluted (in terms of colour density) macerel/spotted tabby cat. She is a random bred or mixed-breed cat.

      She not a member of a breed of cat as recognised by the cat associations. That does not mean that she is any less of a cat, obviously. She is beautiful. What a beautiful coat! Thanks for sharing.

    • Your cat looks a like my sisters newly adopted kitten. Does he/she tweedle? And does he/she have any buttons on their tummy? If your cat does that then they are possibly part Egyptian Mau. What other breed do you think your cat is?

  5. I recently read up on a few breeds of cats trying to figure out if my cat is part Egyptian Mau. After reading a lot, I’m pretty sure she is, it actually explained quite a bit about her behavior. I suggest doing research on breed types. …I’m now fairly sure my Kitty is Egyptian Mau and Siamese/calico mix
