REALLY??? Do they have that many cats in Arabia?
Well there's the Arabian Mau, Sand Cats are included in that area (freakishly cute things too), Persians are from Iran, which is close enough.
A recent study conducted on the DNA of a statistically significant sample of domestic cats has shown that cats (over 500 million of them) are probably descended from a sub-species of cat that originally inhabited countries in the Middle East.

So yeah I bet Arabia has a lot of cats.
