Silver Egyptian Mau kitty needs home...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Nope not Luxor, no one is getting Luxor he's mine mine mine. But I was just chatting with his breeders, Fred and Linda Smith and they are in a pickle.

An elderly lady adopted a kitty last year (from Luxor's line, not a littermate) and she's now in a nursing home and can not take care of him. He's neutered and a year old. Fred and Linda have asked me if I could take him (but I can't) and I really want to help find him a loving home. He loves to sleep and eat but his previous owner didn't play with him much so he is just learning about teaser toys....

Is anyone interested? He's free of charge - I'm sure there would be shipping charges but he really needs a home.....

anyone anyone? I have their phone number....

Gosh I hope so too. If he's anything like Luxor he just LOVES everyone. Part of me is upset that this elderly lady even TOOK a kitten but maybe something happened unexpectedly and that's why she couldn't keep him. But gosh, he didn't even know about TEASER TOYS

Sending prayers and vibes that the kitty finds a wonderful home very soon
- that kitty sounds like my former feral when he first began to hang out with us - didn't understand what TOYS were especially sad to read that about a domesticated cat But happier times are coming his way

I hope he finds a good home, I wouldn't advertise him as free though.....

well, He's free to anyone in Maine because potential adoptees still have to go through the paperwork and the breeders were already paid for him. Shipping is extra and I mentioned that.

and may I ask why?

So the potential adopter has to be from maine? Or will they ship to another state? The person adopting pays shipping and has references?

It's usually not seen as a good idea to advertise cats as free because there are some evil people who adopt cats for free and then use them to either feed their snakes, for helping to 'train' illegal dog fighting dogs or to turn around and sell them for a profit then to research labs who need cats to do tests on.

Usually even a low adoption fee will help weed out people like that, and really anyone who is dedicated enough to deserve the cat won't mind paying a few dollars for the cat. I mean they need to be able to spend a few dollars on the cat now and then, for vet visit and good food etc. so if someone is really really broke they probably shouldn't adopt a cat.

This is different of course if you know the people really well.

I can't speak for them, but I'm sure they wouldn't be able to afford to ship for free. So the potential adopter would probably need to pay shipping, they'll have paperwork to fill out/references....

if you are interested - PM me.

I understand that the person who is adopting would pay shipping fees.

Would an egyptian Mau do well with 2 abys, and a Bengal? Those 3 are my most active fur kids that would be the ones that set the pecking order. My other 3 are in their senior years and they let the younger ones rule the house.

I am interested if they really can't find a loving home for the kitty in their area. Let me know

I would also but I am getting a Sphynx. Both Breeds were on my list when I first started looking for a kitten/cat.

So,

This little kitty is on a road trip to rhode island. They contacted some friends who are breeders of different cats (not maus) and they wanted him. And they were planning to visit a friend in the hospital so they are bringing him down.....

cool - that was quick placement
post #23 of 24
Oh, I hope the cat finds a great home! The Egyptian Mau was a very close option to my Ocicat, Holly, and if I had the space in my small home I'd fly to maine and get the kittie... Good luck, and do re-post with a small asking price that is negotiable

I haven't been on in a long time... I just noticed your post, I wish I would have known sooner, I love them (Fred and Linda) and would have loved to have helped them with placing him. (they were ragdoll breeders first, but I believe they only breed the Maus now, did you know that? they are where I got my first two raggie babies from, my retired pet and my first breeder.) I am glad they have a home for him!!!!!!
