Adoptable Cats

Most of these cats have been prepared to travel to North America to other countries that only require basic and rabies vaccines. The animal may be able to travel immediately or within 30 days, once an appropriate pet escort to the adopter's region is found.

Any cats for Europe (rabies testing and microchipping - see cats with **) are noted on their bios. A three month quarantine is required for these cats (spent at EMRO), and many have already finished this and only await pet escorts (and adoption!). Note: Not all European countries have the same process of a 3 month wait after rabies test and microchipping. Please check with your country's guidelines for small animal import.

Any cats for UK or Australiasia require a 6 month quarantine/residency in a country that is rabies free. Currently, cats would do a residency in France or Bahrain, after which the cat would be escorted (if in France) or shipped (flown) to the respective country, that is, directly to the UK. A further month of quarantine applies for Australia. For details, contact us.

NOTE: Most adoptable cats may also be sponsored while awaiting adoption, and each cat may be sponsored by more than one person.

To begin the adoption process, a questionnaire application must be filled out and sent to adopt@emaurescue.org or to info@emaurescue.org as an attachment. If you are unable to use this method, please email us. For the adoption application, please use this Word document by downloading it to your computer, filling it out by computer or by hand (scanned) and attaching it back to us. The adoption contract must also be signed before the cat travels.

For more information about pet escorts, please see the pet escort section.

Age: (born Oct 2008)

Comments: In Zagazig, a lady named Doaa' noticed that a young mom Mau cat gave birth to two babies and died and the two youngsters were left crying for food and out of fear on the road. Out of pity she called us up and managed to catch one of them, but sadly the other died of starvation and brought it to EMRO by taxi. Without a current overnight animal worker, the General Manager, Maged, nursed the kitten several times a day with kitten milk donated by kind volunteer Aida of California, and thus the kitten was named after her! The kitten survived and is now being fed and socialized by another volunteer, in Maadi. VERY cute, sweet and sociable.

Comments: Sponsor mom writes: "I found her at approx. 3 months of age near the post office in Road 9 (Maadi) where the shoe cleaner was trying to feed her. She had multiple wounds, worst being under her chin which was a massive abcess, an open area at the base of her right ear, and what looked like a perforated eye. The vet thought she had been in a cat or dog fight. Anyway, now she has fully recovered and is only left with a weepy eye. She is extremely friendly. Too friendly and trusting to be left outside here. I have been taking her inside at night as the cold seems to make her eye worse. She is fine inside and loves lap sitting. She is fine with other cats". She is indeed loving and very friendly, although somewhat jealous of other cats. Probably fine with one or two other animals. Loves people.
Other Notes: Eye needs nominal care. Wonderful pet otherwise!

Richy RICHY Richy Collage

RICHY

This sweet black mau is in Alexandria under foster mom Ayda's care. He was found in the street after a car accident that dislocated his shoulder and broke one arm so he is manoevering on 3 legs. But he is very sweet, gentle, quiet kitty who purrs alot. He is shy around other cats and hides his head under his paw if they come up to him as he doesn't want to fight and knows he is weak. Good for a quiet, loving home. Gentle, loving cat. Perhaps an operation could fix the problem? More info and pictures if interested.

Note: for other Arabian Maus for adoption, check our KSA page: KSA Cats for Adoption or Sponsorship.

CALLI

Calli
Status: Available; Sponsored by Rebekah, UK
Color: Calico
Gender: Female (spayed)
Age: (born July 2005)

Comments: Calli is a sweet cat, she hangs around outside and in of EMRO HQ. She was found by staff being chased by some bully cats and coaxed down from scaffolding. She has hung around ever since. She had an intestinal hernia which was fixed when she was spayed. She would enjoy her own home where she could go in and outside and perhaps with a companion that she could gradually warm up to, likely a laid back older cat. She thinks she is a Mau since she hangs out with Maus all day and has big spots herself, being a calico!
Other Notes: Good indoor/outdoor pet!

FAISAL

Sponsored by Werner & Elke, Germany

This feisty Red Mau male kitten was rescued from a compound in the East Gulf of Saudi Arabia. Originally from a litter of 4 kittens, his siblings were adopted, leaving him, with an eye infection that cleared up with some attention. DOB estimated Mar 1, 08. Currently fostered. Sweet and full of life although he is nervous of other cats, perhaps due to a bad experience from early age. He is an alpha cat - the leader. He has relearned how to play with the other kittens although seems to enjoy people as much or more than cats. His mother is spayed. Adopted from KSA, went to Cairo in July and then Germany this fall.

She says he gives love out to everyone all day and tries to obey if you are upset with him. Very sweet, gentle and smart, and very clean. Very attached to his friend Oscar, and is like a big brother to him. Chatty, loves to be stroked, hugged and kissed.
