I know her on Facebook and via a friend. She is a really lovely person and is frantic about her cats, I have reassured her that at least the one you have is in good hands. I think she will be so happy to hear from you

Re: new and confused lol

This is why I could never be a breeder. I would be constantly worried that someone had sold 'my' kittens on without informing me or was mistreating them. I just wouldn't be able to let go and would probably resort to keeping them all instead.

Boy am I glad I got Oscar and Wilbur neutered. If I hadn't I would obsess about their offspring too!

OP, both your cats are beautiful and I hope if you decide to go down the breeding path, you listen to all the good advice that is given by people here, the breed club and get yourself a mentor.

I also hope you manage to contact the original breeder - I am glad the new contact numbers have been passed to you. She must be really worried about the 'other' cat, but at least she can be reassured one cat is being looked after.

Oh, and keep checking to ensure the papers have been updated to your name. x

That isn't the name of my breeder I'm afraid, but it looks as though you're on the right track to find yours, though!

Unfortunately, forums dedicated to Egyptian Maus are scarce; the Pyramid Club was set up about 4 or 5 years ago as an alternative to the Egyptian Mau Club, but it never really got off the ground, and nor did their forum. However, there is an excellent one run under the auspices of the Association Internationale du Mau Egyptien (AIME), and although it is a bit weighed towards French speakers, they have an English section and some really friendly and helpful members (many of them are breeders) who will definitely try to help in any way they can in - some speak good English, others not quite so much.

Re: new and confused lol

As soon as the OP gets in touch with me I will pass on the details. Re mentoring, I am sure that either the breeder or my friend, who also breeds Maus, would be more than happy to guide a newcomer :-)

Could you tell me the email address you have for her, don't want to send an email to the wrong address. Or maybe I could add her on Facebook? I want to speak to her asap to put her mind at rest.

I'm still on the fence about breeding. I want to get as much information and be as prepared as I can be before I decide. It is a big responsibility and not one that I want to jump into too quickly. I also want to make sure that the breeder is happy for me to go ahead with it and hopefully mentor me
On the subject of the papers, the previous 'owner' has told me to post it to him then he will fill it in and send it back to me but i'm not too comfortable with him having my address, may sound silly but I really don't trust him. I haven't even actually met him, he dropped the cat at an address which I think is his girlfriends? and she didn't seem to have a clue about the cats. About a week previously I collected a rabbit from there as he clearly wasn't treating her properly (I rescue and rehome rabbits) and again he was nowhere to be seen

That's great thanks, will have a look on there now. Knew there was a reason I should have learnt french!

Re: new and confused lol

Hi, adding on facebook would be a good idea, can you email me your id at carolmanycats@hotmail.com and I will forward it to her, alternatively search for Vicki Nice and one with a pic of EM kits should come up. If you message her that way first she will know who you are.
