Our Egyptian Mau Beauty
Taylor was born to an abandon pet, Trixie, who lived outside in an apartment complex after she lost her home. Taylor and her brother and sister survived by getting hand-outs from friendly residents. But not everyone was friendly and when some residents started throwing things at them, Trixie, who was a very good mother, moved her kittens to a safe location. They were spotted by a Cat Corner volunteer who took pity on them and decided that they needed a better shot at life. Trixie, Tex and Teri Sue were trapped quickly but Taylor was more difficult and she spent 2 lonely weeks outside by herself waiting for her mother, sister and brother to return. She tried to follow Tex, (her hero) into the trap but it closed before she could get into the trap. The volunteer returned each day to try to catch her. She would sit at a distance and watch but would not go into the trap. We know she was lonesome because we would see her sitting on a little hill watching the neighborhood kids play basketball. Finally, we were able to catch her. When we placed her in the cage with the rest of her family, she ran to her mother and plastered herself against her. She stayed there for days never leaving her mother - we guess she was afraid she would loose her Mom again. After a short stay for medical care, Tex, Teri Sue and Taylor moved to PETCO Hampton where they could meet more people and get use to being kitty pets. Taylor has a most unique appearance which is typical of the Egyptian Mau breed. She has a white undercoat which swirls around and mixes with her Smokey outer coat. You really have to see her to appreciate this beautiful kitten. Because she was the last to be rescued, she is the most shy but she is very curious and interested in what is going on around her. You can see her peaking around to see what is happening. And she loves to eat! Food is definitely the way to Taylor's heart. She is learning to play with feathers and were told by PETCO Associates that she romps and plays with her brother when no one is looking. Taylor is learning to trust people and she is making good progress. She enjoys being petted and having her ears rubbed. Like her brother, she also love treats. Taylor has moved to a foster home where she can get a little extra attention. If you'd like to meet her, contact her foster Mom, Betty, at 757-722-0862.
