The Egyptian Mau is a lovely, medium-sized, short-haired, well-built breed. They are, as it stands, the only domestic breed with naturally occurring spotted fur. Their hind legs are noticeably longer than their front ones, which enable them to be so much faster than any other domestic cat. Their large, green, expressive eyes are unlike any other domestic breeds, making them such a striking breed. Their coat is short, soft, and elegant, and the distinguished combination of spots and stripes make them a natural in the show circuit.
