Fight to preserve the Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is a unique feline which has been around since the time of the Pharaohs. They were considered sacred cats at the time, and were worshipped and immortalized through many of the ancient Egyptians’ remaining artifacts and temples.

Founded in 2004 by Gloria Lauris, a Canadian sociologist with a soft spot for the Pharaonic felines, the Egyptian Mau Rescue Organization (EMRO) cares for stray Maus. The cats are taken in, vaccinated and de-wormed if necessary, spayed or neutered, and given a comfortable home and a regular, healthy diet.

Many Maus living on the street are intentionally poisoned by residents or store owners who simply don’t want cats on their property. Through its ongoing veterinary efforts and the message it tries to spread, EMRO is doing all it can to save the Mau from a tragic fate.
