Cats have been a part of the Arab world since thousands of years. They were living in the deserts and in areas were communities were living.
As the deserts are slowly being changed to cities, the cat population of Arabian countries also moved closer to the populated areas in search of food and shelter. Most of them were living in and around the streets and very few were lucky to be taken into homes of people. Thus they were called the Street Cats in these areas. The large expatriate population living in these countries some times brought their pet cats from their own countries or were homing only well known breeds. The local people also followed suit and homed only well known breeds. Thus the cats originally belonging to this area were ignored.These cats can be seen in most of the Middle East countries, especially, in the Gulf Countries like the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. The Arabian Mau is a natural desert cat of the Arabian Peninsula. They are original breeds and strong survivors of the extreme climate of the Arabian countries.
