These playful and affectionate cats make excellent domestic companions that require minimal grooming.
Originating in Egypt, the Mau is one of the oldest breeds of domestic cats. This breed is one of the few domestic cat breeds that has natural spots. Historically, they were used for duck hunting because they enjoy fetching. Today, the breed is quite rare. These cats are extremely playful, active, and affectionate with their owners. They can be vocal if hungry and are very intelligent and quite independent. They get along with children and other pets, but may be wary of strangers. They are ideal companions for families with children, singles, and experienced cat owners. Grooming is very minimal for these cats.
