This ancient cat is an excellent family pet that loves to play and show its affection.
One of the oldest cat breeds in the world, this cat is believed to be a descendant of a sacred Egyptian cat. They are believed to have originated in Africa. These quiet, yet super playful cats are very people-oriented, intelligent, and enjoy being around their families. They may be reserved around strangers, but are very affectionate with their owners and try to be involved in all household activities. They are very compatible with dogs and other household pets. They are ideal for families with children, singles with other pets, and experienced cat owners. Coat care is minimal, however cleaning their large ears on a regular basis is important and can be done so with moistened cotton swabs.
