Stray and feral cats do not have access to the care they need. The association wanted to help this cat cure numerous health problems. She was then adopted by a veterinary assistant to offer her a daily life that she was unaware of.
Feline Care Cat Rescue has rescued a cat named Mau Mau from the life of a feral cat. She was seen living in a stray cat colony near a factory in Norfolk, England.
Mau Mau had cute facial features that made him look like a cartoon character. He was indeed missing a lot of teeth, causing his tongue to hang out. In addition, Mau Mau had an eye problem that prevented him from closing his eyelids. Therefore, she blinked only with her nictitating membrane (also called the third eyelid).
Adaptation took time. The young cat is not accustomed to such a domestic life surrounded by people. But thanks to the kindness and patience of Mau Mau, she finally got out of her shell. “Every time I see a photo of a Mau Mau, I think she is half cat and half cartoon,” said Love Meow, a shelter member.
After a few months of socialization Mau — Mau was ready to start a new life. Amelia, the veterinarian’s assistant, fell under her spell and wished to meet her. Love at first sight was instant.
If Mau Mau initially hid under his mistress’s bed, it didn’t take long for her to explore her new home from top to bottom. She also became playful, mischievous and sweet, but only when she felt like it. “She is a small cat with a huge personality, she is very stubborn and will happily ignore me,” Amelia said.
Today, the Mau Mau is taking full advantage of her life as a house cat, with all the benefits that come with it. Meanwhile, Amelia is happy to have him with her. “His favorite activity is food, relaxing in sunny places is the second”, Amelia joked.
