    Egyptian MauDon't the black spots on this cat really show up against the silver background? This is a Silver Spotted Egyptian Mau, which is the only natural spotted breed of domestic cat.

    The Egyptian Mau comes in the colors Silver, Bronze and Smoke. Regardless of color, this breed always has a random spotting pattern, although the spots are sometimes a little more difficult to see on the Smoke color. The spots can be small or large, round, oblong, or irregular shaped. Their expressive eyes must be a gooseberry green color, with distinctive mascara lines.
