Your cat looks like a typical domestic short hair to me. Egyptian Maus are rare cats, and it is unlikely, first, that a breeder would sell an intact cat, and second, that an owner of such a valuable cat would just let it roam around looking for a one-night stand. Purebred cats often share similar personality traits (Maine Coons seem to be hard-wired to play with water), but these are not usually used to identify a cat's breed. Cat show judges go mostly upon body configuration and color. You should look up Egyptian Maus on the Cat Fanciers' Association website--they have an interesting history. Not all EMs have spots--apparently there are black ones, for example, but I didn't see anything about calicos. Anyway, you're a very pretty cat, with an owner who loves you.

The unique thing about Egyptian Maus is the spots. You are likely a DSH.
