The Arabian Mau is a breed of domestic cat that was developed from the desert cat, a short-haired native to the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula. This cat has adapted very well to the city life and the extreme climate of the desert cities.
The Arabian Mau cat is recognized as a formal breed only by one fancier and breeder organization and cat registry, the Germany-based World Cat Federation (WCF).
The Arabian Mau it is a natural breed. It is medium in size, with a body structure that is rather large and firm, not particularly slender, and with well developed musculature. The legs are comparatively long, with oval paws. The head appears round, but is slightly longer than broad. The nose is slightly concave curved, when viewed in profile. The whisker pads are clearly pronounced, with a slight pinch. The chin is very firm. The eyes are slightly oval, large and slightly slanted. The cat may have any normal cat eye color, and there is no relation between the eye and coat colors. The ears are large, slightly forward and sideward-placed, high-set on the skull. The tail has medium length and tapers slightly towards the tip. The coat is short and lying close to the body. It has no undercoat and is firm to touch. It may not be silky, but is noticeably very glossy.
