Egyptian Mau – Battery Hill

Hiya! I’m a little girl looking for my furever home 🥰 I have three other littermates, and we live indoors with both mum, dad and our human slave. I was born on 26/9/23, it is our mother’s second litter. Our human slave doesn’t want to rehome us until we are three months old, that makes it Xmas! I’m on a raw diet of human-grade meat and mum’s milk when I don’t like what’s offered. I love chasing whatever silly stuff is attached to a string, classic cat, I know. My eyes are turning copper gradually with a green ring, and I look like a mini panther. The human thinks I’m the sweetest of the four of us, because when we are alone, I never go far away from her, and I’d always go check on her to make sure she’s ok. (You know humans, not very independent as a species.) I thought I had locked in to a furever home about two months ago, but the hooman had apparently changed her mind and just disappeared. I feel sad about it, but it’s probably a bullet dodged. If you are my human, please reach out. I can’t wait to follow you around 😜

Key Characteristics Of Egyptian Maus

Are Egyptian Maus Family-Friendly?

Yes. They make excellent family pets. While they can be reserved with strangers, they’re affectionate and playful with family members. Their playful nature makes them good companions for children.

Suitable Environment

These cats appreciate space to roam and high perches from which to survey their domain. They’re indoor cats but will appreciate a secured outdoor space or a catio.

Other Considerations

Every Egyptian Mau has a unique spot pattern, much like a human fingerprint.

They can reach speeds of up to 30 mph, making them one of the fastest domestic cats.

Their hind legs are longer than their front, leading to a distinctive graceful movement.

How can I take good care of my Egyptian Mau?

Nutrition

A diet tailored to their specific needs is essential. Opt for high-quality cat food with a primary ingredient being a genuine meat source. Given their high activity levels, Egyptian Maus burn more calories than some other breeds and may require a slightly more substantial diet. Always ensure they have fresh water available, and consider occasionally giving them wet cat food to diversify their intake.

Grooming

Their coats have a fine texture and can benefit from a weekly brush to remove any loose hairs, reduce hairballs, and keep the coat in a gleaming condition.

Exercise

As one of the most active domesticated cat breeds, Egyptian Maus demand regular play. Engage them with toys that mimic prey, such as feathered wands or laser pointers, to encourage their natural hunting instincts. Providing them with a cat tree or vertical spaces will also satisfy their need to climb and perch.

Training

Their sharp intelligence and agile bodies mean Egyptian Maus excel in training sessions. Not only can they understand basic commands, but they might also thrive in agility training. This not only serves as a mental stimulant but also helps meet their exercise needs. Using positive reinforcement techniques, like treats or praises, will yield the best results.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

They are moderately vocal, often communicating with soft chirps or meows.
