The Egyptian Mau has a reputation for being extremely fast on its feet. They look very similar to the cats found in ancient Egypt and depicted on the tomb walls of the pharaohs. These athletic cats have been measured to have speeds of thirty miles per hour. Not only that, their long, well-muscled hind legs allow the mouse to leap to great heights with the greatest of ease. Over the years, thanks to their naturally occurring exotic spotted coat and friendly, loyal and affectionate nature, the Egyptian Mau has become a popular companion, finding their way into the hearts and homes of many people in the UK and elsewhere in the world.
