Egyptian Mau

We found in the Egyptian Mau one of the most elegant cats out there. Its history is linked to the dynasty of the pharaohs, a great empire that appreciated the figure of the cat as that of an almost divine being. The word “evil” is Egyptian, and means cat, that is, the Egyptian cat. In ancient Egyptian civilization cats were venerated figures and were protected as sacred animals. Killing one of these animals was punished like the death penalty.

CAT Spraying No More REVIEW

Cat Spraying No More is an excellent opportunity for the cat owners to learn about training the cat with a systematic approach. It helps in preventing the unwanted litter issues and other risks of bad feline behavior as well.

Numerous hieroglyphs were dedicated to the created breed which was selected by the same Egyptians to give shape to feline beauty. Their ancestors date back more than 4000 years, so we might be talking about the oldest cat breed then. It was Princess Natalia Troubetzkoi who, in the fifties, introduced Rome to the Egyptian Mau, a cat that was very well received for its beauty and history. We can now find wild specimens living near the Nile River. Find out more about this cat breed next on YourCatCareguide.

Physical appearance

We highlight in the Egyptian Mau a tabby in dark colors that stands out on the light background of his fur. These are round and defined spots that are all over your hair. The body of the Egyptian Mau reminds us of the Abyssinian cat although it is longer, more muscular and of medium stature. We find a genetic detail in his body, the hind legs are longer than the front legs. Their paws are small and delicate and need extra care, something that we will analyze below.

Finally it is good to point out that the Egyptian Mau cat has large, ripped eyes that curl up slightly. Eye color may vary from light green to amber.


We find in the Egyptian Mau a very independent cat, although it depends on the particular case. However, it is a great cat to have at home since it fits very well to coexistence and when you gain confidence is a caring cat. Although his character is independent, the Egyptian Mau cat is a possessive animal that likes to pay attention to him, providing him with toys and extra food.

It costs him to relate to strangers with whom he will be secretive (and may even ignore them), yet some traits of his character may make him want to be petted. We should get used to meeting new people.

Overall, we speak of a calm and peaceful cat although we should be careful if we have other animals at home like hamsters, birds and rabbits as it is a good hunter.


The Egyptian Bad cat does not need excessive care, it will be enough to pay attention to his hair and brush it two to three times a week, this way he will achieve a shiny and silky hair, beautiful by nature. A premium food will assure us the beauty of your hair.

In addition to the hair, we should pay attention to other aspects, which are of a routine nature, such as eliminating her bumps, cutting her nails and checking her hair and skin in general to see if everything is okay.


The health of the Egyptian Mau cat is a little fragile since it does not accept very well the sudden changes of temperature, for that reason inside the house we must maintain a stable temperature as much as possible.

Sometimes we often suffer from obesity, we should control their food and make sure we perform exercise regularly.

As we mentioned, it is a more sensitive cat and so we must be careful with medications and anesthetics. This also makes you susceptible to feline asthma, a disease of the allergic type that affects the respiratory tract.
