We had a house Rabbit Called Big Bunny who died on October the 4th 2003. We never thought we would stop crying as we loved him that much. My Husband was not a big fan of Big Bunny on account that Big Bunny did not like him and kept spraying him. He said we could not have another house rabbit, but could have a cat. Previous to Big Bunny we had 4 Persian Cats who died of old age. At first we were going to get a Siamese who i was going to call Ming the Merciless but we saw an advert for Egyptian Mau's in Huddersfield and went to visit. We were immediately charmed and a little chap called Sohbek climbed on to my Daughters lap. It transpired that Sohbek was born on the same day around the time Big Bunny died [2am] We knew it was just meant to be. Unfortunately Sohbeks breeder Ed wanted to keep Sohbek for his breeding programme so we hung on and took one of his Daughters from his first litter Sobekoteo Mwsheri [Muse] In time Sohbek Joined us and Ed and i held a cat in partnership [Kyrie] Ed introduced us to showing and we showed in the years where we were waiting for recognition status. We were very dedicated and went out every 2 weeks religiously. I am pleased to say that Muse won the first Champion ticket when recognition was achieved. We now have 7 Maus 2 boys and 5 girls of which 2 are neuters. When Mr Higgins moans i always say well if you had just let us have that 1 house Rabbit. We are dedicated to the welfare of the breed and proud to be part of the Egyptian Mau Club

I was first introduced to this lovely breed at the Supreme show in 2006 when I was showing my brown tortie Burmese.  I was breath taken by the beauty of the Mau's, and I knew I had to own a Mau for myself! I obtained my first Mau in 2007, a silver girl, from Kay Jater, a breeder based in Bristol. Earlier this year, with great excitement, I travelled further afield and imported a bronze kitten from France. I am now the proud owner of two lovely Mau's, both neuter girls.

Since 2011, my involvement with the Cat Fancy has steadily grown and I have worked my way through the GCCF stewarding scheme. In 2014 I was accepted on to the stewarding section of the Mau Judge Appointment scheme. I am now a pupil judge for the Mau breed and (fingers crossed) hope to qualify as a full judge of the breed in 2017.

Only ever had rabbits as a child but always loved animals of any variety. it was not until i married Amanda that i had my first dog, then came more dogs in the shape of German Shepherds which is when we started showing and breeding GSD's.

I have never wanted a cat until i saw the film cat women and i saw a beautiful silver spotted cat which reminded me of a snow leopard. After researching the cat i saw, i found out it was an Egyptian Mau. We was then lucky enough to find a local breeder with kittens and eventually adopted our first mau.

The moment she came into our house i was smitten. We now have 3 females and one male which we show and breed as a family hobby.

I have grown up having animals, my first was a Black Labrador which I had when I was 3yrs old, as I grew so did my love for animals, especially German Shepherds which we used to breed and show.

We got our first Egyptian Mau a few yrs ago after researching the breed, not knowing how a kitten would settle in a house with 4 dogs we brought Kiya home, within a few weeks she had the dogs under control.

We now have 4 of these beautiful cats, we enjoy showing and breeding & our eldest son Connor is part of the GCCF young Exhibitors Scheme.
