GenieMau Serenity AstartesMau was born on 6th March 2016 to Natango's Ghaniyah of GenieMau; THE Bronze Egyptian Mau. Ghaniyah is currently the highest scoring Bronze Egyptian Mau in the UK, and is the background of our Astartes Mau header.
Serenity's lineage is decorated with Grand Champion, Imperial Grand Champion, Olympian, and Best of Breed awards.
Her sire is C.F.A. Grand Champion Maunarch Pharoh of Geniemau, and her dam is Silver Olympian and Imperial Grand Champion Natango's Ghaniyah of Geniemau. We are extremely lucky to have been able to acquire a breeding queen from Ghaniyah. To put things in perspective, The Supreme is the cat equivalent of Crufts, and Ghaniyah won Best of Foreign Variety Supreme in 2012 ('Foreign' meaning she is pitched against numerous other breeds), and Best of Breed Supreme in 2013 (meaning, Best Egyptian Mau in the show).
Serenity was collected after a long drive north to take ownership from the breeders who kindly met us half-way.
Once home, she settled straight in. By constantly trying to befriend Leo, she keeps us on our toes as we juggle cats between one room and another. Serenity might want to play, but Leo has other plans, and it's important we wait until Serenity is ready.
When the cat pen is built, cat juggling will finally be a thing of the past, and we can allocate each sex their own section of the house.
Serenity loves to play fight with tickle sticks and soft toys, plays fetch with toy mice, loves to climb onto shoulders of whoever is holding her, and extremely affectionate to any household visitors.
Every cat develops its own unique personality, and while Leo loves to lay on my legs in the lounge, Serenity would rather cuddle up to my wife, unless there is an affectionate visitor she can milk for attention.
Serenity is an extremely well behaved, playful, loving cat, and we look forward to entering her into cat shows towards the end of 2016.
P.S. Serenity is either very appropriate, or inappropriate, depending on your point of view. Appropriate for me, because she is as full of action as her shiny namesake.
