Kiya is a fantastic cat. Where do I begin? Her green eyes are luminescent. She is friendly and so very loving. She is a fairly small cat, long and lean, agile and athletic. Her personality is wonderful. To see her is to want her.
She is a good mother. What you say, mother? Yes. She was owner surrendered to us because she was (very) pregnant and seriously cranky around the other dogs and cats in her owner’s home. Kiya had had a litter before and her owner did not going to go through all that again. This litter, she had six beautiful kittens who, except for one, look nothing like her and will be posted to the kitten page soon.
I am including photos at the end so you can see her in her beautiful pregnancy.
Kiya is now spayed, of course, but she needs a family who will carefully keep her inside since we know she was allowed outside. Being pregnant makes cats decidedly unfriendly to other cats and dogs. Kiya has relaxed a bit in this, but I think she would enjoy being an only cat for now. I expect she would be fine with kids 4 feet and higher. She is a very nice girl.
Egyptian Maus attract people because of their exotic looks but soon win peoples' hearts with their intelligence and their fierce loyalty to their owners. These are very interactive cats and need a lot of constant connection with their family. They are amazing athletes and love to play. Like a Bengal, they need space and entertainment. Do put a bed on top of your refrigerator.
Kiya eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
