The aim of this part of the website is to help Siamese and part Siamese cats in need
are already aware how bad the situation is for cats in some parts of the world.
I have always been aware not everyone loved cats as much as me, but I was
really shocked when I started to learn about how bad things are for cats in
As I child
a studied ancient Egypt and learnt that in the time of the Pharaohs, cats were
regarded as demi gods and worshipped. Fast forward to current day Egypt and so
much has changed, cats now are treated more like vermin than demi
gods. Some of lucky ones are still kept as pets, but all too
often these ‘pets’ are discarded into the street for no good reason. The other
day I saw a case where a pet cat had given birth to 4 short haired kittens.
Short haired cats are not favoured in Egypt and when the owners realised they
could make no money out of the kittens, they three their pet and her
kittens out into the cruel Cairo streets.
stray cats have to try to survive on the streets and to deal with the problem
of these vermin cats, the use of poison and other forms of
culling are common place. And do not even get me stated on what goes on in
the so called pet shops in Egypt.
there are some kind people who work tirelessly to help cats in need. Sadly the
animals do not stand a great chance of finding a forever home with
the country; therefore many cats find their homes aboard in countries
like the UK and USA.
some of cats who find themselves in these horrific situations are Siamese or part Siamese. All cats deserve a
loving forever home, but given that in the UK you get expect to pay hundreds of
pounds for a Siamese cat, I find it so confusing that these amazing creatures
too find themselves homeless.
like this website to be a force for good in the world. Many people are
put off by the costs involved in adopting a cat from somewhere like Egypt and
it is true that it does cost a lot, but in my option money well spent. If
someone can offer one of these cats a better life then I do not think
the cost of preparing the cat for travel should be barrier to that. There
are people who for whatever reason can’t offer a forever home, but still
want to help. So what better use of this website than to bring Siamese cat
lovers together and give these poor creatures a second chance of happiness
