Moet, a Persian cat, didn’t have an easy start to life. She was kept at a pet shop in Oman, a country in the Middle East, where she was advertised for sale. Moet shared a cage with other cats, and the cage was dirty and unhealthy.

When cat flu moved through the shop, Moet contracted the disease. No one wanted to buy a sick cat, so while the other cats in Moet’s cage found new homes, Moet did not. Moet became so sick that she eventually went blind.

Luckily for Moet, a rescuer came along. A woman who identified and rescued pet store animals who were most at risk saw Moet and rescued the cat. The woman brought Moet to the Al Qurum Veterinary Clinic, where Moet’s eyes were removed and she was brought back to health.

But her story doesn’t end there. Moet was still in search of a home, and Emily Shotter, a woman who lives in Oman, was looking for a cat to add to her family. Shotter already had a rescue cat, Luna, and wanted another cat to keep Luna company. When Shotter heard about Moet, she was hesitant – having a special needs cat requires special care and attention, and Shotter didn’t think she was ready for the time commitment. But once she met Moet, she quickly fell in love with the cat.

And so, approximately two years ago, Moet went to her new home. She’s a friendly cat who loves to play and adores being brushed. You can even follow Moet’s adventures on Facebook. Clearly, the cat who had a rough start to life has lucked out in finding herself in a loving home.
