TThe 6th Egyptian Mau in the History of the Breed to earn the prestigious title of Distinguished
And here are the fabulous cats that earned the Cheetah her title!

|GP Emau's Chiaroscuro||Also like daddy....||Elegance incarnate|
GP Emau's Lord Osiris
|More Taphe, affectionately nicknamed the evil princess...||This girl is a wannabe show cat. Despite a late start,
and sporadic showing she became a grand at 7 and a half and earned at least one Best cat
during her on again off again career...
Other than her first litter, which gave us Tease, and one with Soleil, which gave us Pyramid and
Chiaro...Cheetah has made most of her matches with our one and only Ghost. To be honest, if
that match keeps producing babies like the ones you'll see here, they'll be forever together! She's
an incredible mother and her babies seem to be, without fail, incredibly exotic, spotty and
One after another, the spottiest things you ever did see... and now I have my Karma Chameleon,
the girl I have been waiting for for so very long.
Cheetah and Ghost - Curtain call...
Cheetah's last litter produced just one very spotty boy - a bronze who by the looks of him will
follow right in the footsteps of older brothers Sunny and Goose for trouble and fun! He has a
mouth on him and does not seem to mind having his doting mother all to himself!
CHEETAH & GHOST - Do it Again.... This time Seven
is the Magic number!
WOW! Seven in this tummy - and not small babies either!
No wonder she was so big.... Largest baby 4.6 ounces,
smallest 3.6... All typical Cheetah/Ghost spotty fools.... So
contrasty, Five boys, two girls.... Six silvers, one bronze...
The ultimate no-nonsense mother, Cheetah had no
problem keeping track of them AND Comet's four! She
did not even seem overwhelmed .....I on the other hand
was quite overwhelmed!
|Sunny and My Karma Chameleon...||Cheetah boy...|
|Emau's Here Comes the Sun of Mauraj||Cheetah does it again with her bronzes - not warm, but oh so
Cheetah and Soleil
GP Emau's Chiaroscuro
and in championship.....
GC Emau's Pyramid Scheme!
|The ethereal Pyramid||Such a silly goose||and such a sweet child...|
Cheetah very efficiently and calmly birthed four lovely silvers and blessed me (Finally!) with
four females. Such a good girl - she was the perfect mother as always...
My Pyramid at just a few weeks! I waited so long for her....
Cheetah girls getting older....
|Pyramid a little bigger||Pyramid practicing the turtle||Pyramid still trying to turtle!|
Cheetah and Ghost - Third time around...: Suerat, Niles,
Neferu and of course starring ....Goose!!!
|P Emau's Rare Edition ||This silver boy is about 5 months here....|
|Oh my! It's a Duck, Duck, GOOSE!||Actually it's GP Emau's Mau or Never at his first show - just
barely 4 months old!!!|
|Wow Wow Wow It's....GP Emau's Oasis||The Dancin Mauchine looks so grown up...|
|GP Emau's Taphenes Of Lovemau became the
oldest Egyptian Mau ||
in CFA history to earn the title of grand when she
picked up the go ahead points at the tender age of 7 years five months!|
Well, the timing wasn't mine, but the match was a good one as usual. the next one scheduled. Those
two love birds took things into their own paws and decided the time was right - Cheetah and Ghost
were pleased as punch with each other... The gold standard has been set with past litters and we had
high expectations. I had my order in of course, a silver girl, spots the size and shape of Taphe's and
Jungle's, a muzzle like Nephthys', a coat and contrast like Safari's (or Taphes's) Profile like Taphe's
or Nephthys, color like Sunwapta, Ethan, or Oreo! I figured that if she'd give me that girl, I could
quit! Well, not quite there....Four lovely children, unfortunately, all boys (Yep, you read that right -
BOYS... I was not amused, not one little bit). All very lovely. Three silvers, Suerat, Niles, and Neferu,
and one bronze, Goose...
|A little fox at sleep ||Goose, Niles and Suerat (Emau's Mau or
Never, Emau's Oasis and Emau's Rare
Edition)||Oops! Woke the fox up!|
|Spots spots spots||Brotherly love - for now...||The whole crew - you can see why it's
duck, duck Goose...|
|At least with Maus this can be their good side!|| |
Ghost and Cheetah - Magic the second time around as well!
We repeated of course, and surprise of surprises, the second time around was EVEN better than the
first.... Five babies. Four silvers, one Bronze. Three boys, two girls. Taphe, Bronze female,
Sunwapta, silver male, Oreo, silver male, Ethan silver male, and Nepthys, Silver female
Sunwapta, Silver male. It was hard to pick from the boys, one was
more fabulous than the next - each and everyone just as good or
perhaps better than their older sisters Jungle and Safari. Sunwapta was
probably the sweetest of the boys though... He is another one of those
wonderful gentle souls with a playful edge. He went to live with Rob in
Florida and is busy bringing sunshine and love into Rob's life now. He
was so easy-going that when Rob, who flew in from Florida to pick him
up, took him back on the plane he came out of the carrier and let the
other passengers hold and adore him while he purred and enjoyed
himself... Sunwapta spends his days riding Rob's shoulders and his
nights curled in the crook of Rob's arm.
Emau's A Dash of Oreo, silver male, (Pictured right), lives in Northern
Virginia. Oreo was much like Sunwapta with perhaps a little more of a
zen for play. Like the rest of the litter, spotted all over and sweet sweet
sweet.. He went to live with Jennifer and Jimmy in DC.
Ethan, silver male (pictured left) Yeah,
another spotted fool - perfect pattern
gorgeous. Sigh. Why do they all have to be
boys??? Ethan has an interesting housemate
- Joey, a Scottish Fold! Ethan made a
rather impressive show debut in late July
1998. He lives with a wonderful; couple in Massachusetts. You can see
more of Ethan on the Show Scene page...
Emau's Nephthys of New Kingdom, Out of CH Matiki's Mia Cheetah, By Emau's Ghostrider.
Nephthys makes her home with Melissa Bateson and is currently living in England as one of the
foundation cats that Melissa will use to try to get the Maus accepted by GCCF. Nefi, as she is called,
is an elegant child with legs that just won't quit and spots, spots spots...
|Nefi has the longest, most elegant legs!||Nefi as a baby!|
GP Emau's Taphenes, bronze spay out of CH Matiki's Mia Cheetah of Emau,
DM and by CH Emau's
Ghostrider. Taphe makes her home with Mark of Richmond
VA. She is one of of the few bronzes that we have bred. Like
her older sister, Jungle, she has big ,beautiful spots and a body
that literally feels like silk over steel. Her eyes are huge and
green green green. Her nickname is "The Evil Princess "and
she has earned it - she makes Thunder, Mark's long-suffering
Devon Rex, absolutely miserable with her antics. Mark is
getting another Mau, Comet's Mir, to give the evil one (who
meets all visitors at the door with a purr and a bump, mind
you!) a run for her money....Taphe was born thinking she was
royalty. She expects the world to cater to her and has no fear of ANYTHING. Taphe made her show
debut as an ADULT and shocked us all by making three finals as an open! We were very proud!
P Emau's Welcome to the Jungle, out of CH, Matiki's Mia
