Question by Lady in the Feathered Wings: Where can I find an Egyptian Mau?
I just LOVE ancient Egyptian culture! I don’t know if anyone shares my enthusiasm? But if so please do share! I live in California on the central coast and this area doesn’t seem to have any leads at all as to where to buy one. Not even animal shelters!!! I’ve been to pet shops here and had no such luck! So, please if you have any leads.THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!

That’s because there’s only about ten breeders in the entire country. Not sure why you say “not even animal shelters!” Less than 3% of cats are ANY breed so it’s rare to find a cat of any breed at a shelter other than the occasional Persian that gets dumped because the idiot owner doesn’t want to keep up with the grooming they need. And pet shops? Pedigreed cats aren’t sold there. Only no-breed backyard breeder ones.
The ONLY place to get an Egyptian Mau is from a TICA, CFA or ACFA registered Mau breeder. Even pet quality kittens START at around $ 1,000.
