Meet Egypt! Egypt is a teeny-tiny, precious, beautiful princess, and that is exactly how she should be treated! She has a naturally distressed/worried face, so she looks like a princess who always needs to be rescued! She was the runt of her litter, and may not grow to be very big (but time will tell!). She and her brother, Cairo, were found outside. Unfortunately, their mother was not found.
Because she did not have her mother as long as she should have, she developed a comforting habit of sucking on her tail. Her tail has a slight bend near the tip, but it is hard to tell, and does not seem to be painful to her. She is a little less of a people lover than her brother, and may take a little while to feel comfortable in a new place with new people, so she will require some patience. The best way to win her over is scratching her little butt! She loves back scratches, and if she comes to you for affection, she can be a very sweet, snuggly girl! She will lay in her foster mom's lap, but she is less likely to want affection if you go up to her or pick her up. She just needs a little more time to get used to humans, but so far she is pretty sure she likes them!
Egypt is bonded with her brother Cairo and because of this they need to adopted together. Please check out Cairo’s bio here! Does your house need a little princess and prince? Apply to get to know more about Egypt and Cairo!

Egypt and Cairo were diagnosed with feline coronavirus or FCoV. But don't worry this isn't the same as the human kind! This is a very common viral infections that affects the GI tract, and follow up care with our future adopter's vet may be needed. We know this may sound scary, but it actually is very common! 80-90% of cats are infected with feline coronavirus, they are just never tested or diagnosed.
Egypt is from Minneapolis. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

Want to adopt a kitten? We are glad you'll consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
