About Nefertiti (and Mau)

Born ~9/1/2016, F, Ruddy Abyssinian
Adoption Fee: $350 for the Pair

Nefertiti and Mau MUST be adopted together. There are NO exceptions. See Mau here. 

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat through our Owner Placement Program.  We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat.  It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.

Nefertiti (and Mau) is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home but is residing with her current owner in Oakland. An adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.

Nefertiti is an exquisite purebred pedigreed ruddy Abyssinian. She has been with Mau since she was 16 weeks old. They are a bonded pair and the very best forever friends.

Their owner needs to relocate abroad to her home country, so she has made the difficult decision to re-home these beautiful cats. The journey abroad in the cargo hold and going through foreign customs would be way too traumatizing for these particular cats. This is what their owner says about them:

“They need to remain together. Nefertiti has had Mau in her life since she was 16 weeks old. Mau used to be a breeder and came to us within a couple of weeks of our getting Titi. Mau is gentle and very soulful, and Titi is passionate, curious, and very confident. They are both very fun and loving. They have not been around animals, and I wouldn’t recommend that, but they have been around children, but not for a few years. They share a litter box and use Fresh Step unscented, changed daily. They eat Iams Perfect Portions for indoor cats (1 and a half each per day) and Iams dry food for weight and hairballs indoor – a small cup a day. They have toys and a cat stand that I’ll certainly send with them. They are not on any medication.”

Titi (as she is affectionately nicknamed) weighs about 10 lbs., is healthy, very active, and loads of fun with a typical high-energy Abyssinian attitude. She’s in charge, very curious, and interested in everything going on around her. As with many Abyssinians, she enjoys high places. Titi is graceful and nimble, not clumsy, and things do not get pushed off surfaces or broken. She likes to be petted and lets you know when she wants your attention. Sleeping in the bed and sometimes under the covers with you is her favorite nighttime place to be. Nefertiti does not like strange cats and will become aggressive if around other cats, except for her best forever friend, Mau.

Titi and Mau are indoor-only cats that enjoy supervised time together on a cat-safe enclosed deck, balcony, or patio. They might enjoy having a catio to spend time in.

They will do best in a quiet home, without other pets, where someone is home most of the time. We expect they could do well with older, respectful children who are mindful about protecting pets from escaping outdoors.

We expect Titi and Mau to be very popular, so if you are considering they could be yours, don’t hesitate to reach out to us about them. Their adoption fee is $350 for the pair.

Nefertiti is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.

She currently lives with her owner in Oakland.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pets and create an ideal forever home.
