Egyptian Mau Kittens: Adorable, Exotic, and Beautiful

100375Egyptian-Mau-image1

If you have ever seen Egyptian Mau Kittens playing in a grassy yard, you will understand why many call this cat breed one of the most exotic.  These playful felines are one of only a few cat breeds that have natural spots on their coats.  Many people who have owned these cats will tell you that they are very unique animals.  But you might run into a problem trying to find a kitten to call your own because these are somewhat rare animals.  While there are breeders across the country, finding one locally might prove to be a challenge depending on where you live.  But a quick search online may help you in your endeavor.

What Are The Characteristics of These Animals?

Egyptian Mau Kittens are really cute but when they grow up they turn into a truly beautiful animal.  When fully grown, these cats will have a small to medium frame with a short spotted coat.  But these cats are known for something else other than their looks.  Having longer back legs makes these cats can really run fast. In fact, they are the fastest of all domesticated cats.  With a top speed of up to 30 miles per hour these animals can out run just about any other pet.  So if you are planning on getting one, make sure you have plenty of room in your home so they can run around.  These cats are not for those who live in tiny apartments.  Another characteristic that makes this animal standout from the rest of the crowd is there vocalizations.  They will often chirp and produce very strange sounds when excited.  While many people find this interesting, be warned that you might get awakened in the middle of the night with strange sounds.

So Is This Animal Right For You?

While these cats can be very pricey they are very easy to keep.  You won’t have to worry so much about grooming because a daily brushing is all you will need to keep these cats looking beautiful.  But these cats are going to need lots of space to run around. If you have a back yard that these animals can safely run around in while being supervised, that would be great.  But if you live in a small apartment you might want to avoid bringing one of these animals home.  So if you have the proper space and enough time to play with them, this could be the breed for you.
