Egyptian Maus are one of the oldest breeds of domestic cats. They have spots on the tips of the hairs of their coat and come in five colors. They typically land on their back feet after leaping and can jump as high as six feet in the air. They are one of the fastest domestic cats thanks to their long hind legs, capable of running at a speed of 30 miles per hour. The Maus can change their facial expressions and eye color from green to turquoise. Maus supposedly have a long gestational period of about 73 days and tend to be sensitive to anesthesia and medicine. Egyptian Maus do best as the one and only pet since they don’t care for socializing or sharing their owners with others.
