Adoptable EMRO Cats - Updated August 20, 2014

We are happy you came here to look at our cats in need of a good home, and we hope you will find your new companion here. If you come here more often, please don't forget to refresh your screen periodically by pressing the 'F5' button to view the updated cat biographies.

If you are particularly interested in any new cat, please make an inquiry and put in an application for that cat. You find the application as well as other information about the adoption process on the Adoption Information page. There is no obligation to adopt until it is confirmed, and you have decide which cat is the one for you, and you will be considered next for this cat.

Many cats you see here are also available for sponsorship while awaiting adoption, and each cat may be sponsored by more than one person. EMRO also takes care of cats who are old, feral or have health issues preventing their adoption. These cats need Sponsors the most! You can find these cats HERE.

OFF-SITE - We have additional Mau-mixes and Non-Mau cats available for both adoption and sponsorship being fostered by volunteers or by rescuers. You can find these sweet-tempered cats looking for homes of their own HERE.

Also, please have a look at the Egyptian and Arabian Maus available for adoption under Dubai Arabian Maus  and Saudi Arabia (KSA) Cats.

We are always urgently looking for a Pet Escorts who are willing to accompany cats on their way to their new homes outside Egypt. Escorts are given a stipend of USD $50 (USA/Canada) or EURO 30. See Escort a Mau.

Unable to adopt? If you live in the Cairo area, EMRO is urgently looking for foster homes for some of our cats and kittens who would do better in a temporary, nurturing home environment. If you are interested in becoming a Foster Parent, click HERE.

Cats, kittens, and "Special Needs. Special needs" felines designated with the below cat icon indicate that they have Sponsors who have graciously volunteered to pay their travel costs out of Egypt. Potential Adopters need pay only the basic adoption balance plus the Pet Escort fee (if applicable) to get their adopted felines home.

EMRO's mandate is to rescue and rehome Native Egyptian Maus, Arabian Maus and Shirazi Maus, and all intakes are at the sole discretion of the founder: you may contact at info@emaurescue.org. Please note that EMRO, although a non-profit organization, is NOT government funded and relies solely on the donations and good will of those using its services. We are a small shelter and have very limited spaces for intakes. Pet quality Maus remain available through EMRO to any one interested locally or worldwide in helping save a Mau who satisfies our basic screening application and who are able to pay for its expenses to get to their new home (we operate on a cost-recovery basis).  However EMRO will also often recommend to a potential adopter to also consider the Native Egyptian Mau breeder closest to them (please check NESMAweb site).

We're Home! No more cold, hunger, and no more being alone!

Comments:

After missing for several years, Betty has returned!! Back and annoying the other cats with her feisty ways. She was one of the first cats to come to EMRO when the shelter was founded, but then she disappeared within the first year. She returned once about 1-2 years ago, then disappeared again.  It is believed that she lives across the park but has redis-covered that food is serve promptly 5:00 PM at EMRO! She is affection-ate to people, allowing her back to be petted, sometimes jumps up to have her head patted, and she rubs against people’s leg. Betty is sometimes moody/ tempermental, sometimes friendly, but can turn around and bite an ankle. This bow-legged beauty is otherwise special, as she one EMRO’s originals, like Cali, still around!
