Egypt is waiting

beautiful Egypt

Egypt is a gorgeous, sweet, funny,  petite and fluffy girl, under a year old, patiently waiting for a special adopter to come along and give her a forever home.  She was abandoned when she was about six months old at the Hyde Park Animal Clinic for unknown reasons. One of our volunteers happened to be there and brought her into our foster program.  Egypt was very scared by her experience and was initially very nervous in her first foster home.  Michelle and family were very patient and although it took a while, Egypt did come around -- see her previous post here.

Egypt and the resident dog did not get along, so we moved to a new foster home -- with other cats.

Egypt and resident cat Tallulah (an HPC alum!)

It took Egypt about two months to get comfortable in her new foster home, but she has really come out of her shell.  She loves being around people and will follow you around to lounge on the porch or the bed, and even comes when you call her name.  She is very vocal with a range of chirps, "barks," and meows, and if you scratch her back while she's eating, she makes a hilarious "nom nom nom" noise that lets you know shes happy but busy scarfing down treats!  She enjoys a laser pointer or string toy, and goes crazy for salmon treats.  She has longer hair so does need to be brushed regularly, and especially enjoys it on her face!  She sleeps snuggled up to fostermom every night. She now gets along fine with the female cat in the foster home, but not with the male cat resident.

Fostermom has fallen head over heels for this funny girl who got such a rough start in life but hopes Egypt will get a forever home soon!  She is spayed, up to date on shots, and tested neg/neg, and will need an adopter with patience to wait for the rewards that come with giving her time to adjust and let her personality shine. Every cat needs time to adjust to a new environment; Egypt merely needs more time than most.  Email us at to meet Egypt!
