Random Cat Fact #2
Okay, so we all know cats are fast. Really, really fast. Have you ever seen a cat run from a hungry Rottweiler? We can be pretty fast when we want to be. But really, what is the fastest cat? Well, that would be the Egyptian Mau, one of the oldest breeds of cats! The Egyptian Mau (which means "cat" in Egyptian) can reach up to speeds of 30 miles per hour! Now that cat has some scary neighbor dogs! Why is this? Probably because of their long legs, and a unique flap of skin extending from the flank to the back knee, which allows for great agility and large steps. Run, kitty, run!
