CANDI

CANDI

When CoVid hit last spring and Cairo basically “shut down” (not just to tourists, but all local markets, take-aways, etc), the feral colonies in the city were in desperate need. SHE teamed up with another rescue and took turns going into key central areas to feed the feral colonies.
Despite the fact that the Haven was overflowing with cats, Koky always returned from those trips with at least one or two felines that she’d come across that were in need of further assistance. On a day in late May, she returned from her feeding visit with two blind kittens, later named Solly and Candi. This brother and sister were on their own, no mother in site, obviously hungry and dehydrated.
Since arriving at the Haven, they have both thrived and both are currently looking for their forever homes.
Lovely Candi is an outgoing, friendly girl. She doesn’t let her lack of vision stop her from greeting Haven visitors. She loves attention and affection. She gets on well with other cats as with the Haven dogs, and would fit in well with most family situations, including those with respectful and gentle children.
This lovely girl exhibits most of the characteristics of the native Mau — outgoing, intelligent, vocal. Maus are a special breed, first written about over 4000 years ago. We tend to doubt that the ancient Egyptians wrote about “shoulder cats,” but Candi would certainly fit the bill if they did! (Should you be unfamiliar with the term “shoulder cat,” have a peek at one of the photos below, showing Candi enjoying a ride perched on the shoulder of one of the Haven’s team).
Given her lack of sight, Candi does need to be a housecat/indoor kitty. Some blind cats can be lead trained, or she could go out into a cat-secure garden under supervision. Free-roaming or being allowed outside on her own, however, are not options.
Like all of our cats, Candi has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated against standard cat diseases as well as rabies, and when she does travel, she will do so with his certificate from the laboratory certifying her rabies blood test. All adoption offers are subject to a successful homecheck (currently done via video call) and an adoption fee of £160 or local equivalent.
Having a blind cat isn’t that much different than having a sighted kitty. If you’d like to talk about adopting a blind cat, about Candi in particular, or learn more about our adoption process in general please send me a PM. Either me or another member of our Admin team will be back in contact with you.
If you’re not in a position to adopt right now, would you please consider helping us by sharing Candi’s profile? x
