The Egyptian Mau is a breed of cat known for its spotted fur and outgoing personality. It is the only domestic cat with naturally occurring spots on its short coat. Egyptian Mau cats are lean and generally weigh about 12 pounds.
An extra pouch of skin near the hind legs allows Egyptian Mau cats to get extra extension while running and jumping, and they are often playful and outgoing in nature. Egyptian Mau cats are known to be easily trainable, and some owners even leash-train. The cats are very smart, able to fetch their toys on command. These cats require lots of attention and playtime from their owners.
