Egyptian Maus have three colors that are accepted for show: smoke, silver, and bronze (which is brown tabby, without the silver gene).They are basically spotted tabbies who actually get their coloring from the silver gene
You learn new things every day and lutece is a very great teacher!I agree, you have a lovely little tabby and white domestic shorthair. Her pattern is broken mackerel which has some spots and some stripes. This is a common pattern in the domestic cat.

She is Uber cute, however I do not believe here to have any mau ancestry. Tabbies can appear to be spotted, but in reality it is just broken mackerel. Maus are really not common at all in the USA, and unless you have seen papers or a pedigree you can not be sure. In the almost non existent occasion for a pedigree mau is outcrossed. Therefore even if she did happen to be an extremely rare case, she would still be considered a domestic short hair.Thanks everyone
I didn't think she was a pure breed, but wondered if she had done in her due to her unusualarlongs.
She's extremely affectionate with me but not strangers. She's really curious about water too - sits or walks around the edge of the bath tub when my son is in the bath.
She's quite small and long but she's only 3 or 4 moths old so I'm still getting to her
