    If you know expats who have left Egypt - what have they done with their pets? This has just come up as a potential issue on my Facebook.

  3. Some have asked neighbours to care for them whilst they're away. I know one who has paid their boab extra to look after their cats.
    Let's hope there isn't a drastic food shortage coming, else I fear that kitty may be on the menu.
     
  4. Yum! Tastes just like chicken.[​IMG]

    Disgracewful post. Those poor expats who are now cuddled up in the UK frightened about their little pussies being eaten.
    From what I've been they do not taste like chicken! Much more sinuey and not very pleasant. Cetain breeads of dog on the other hand; delicacy...[​IMG]
    ...If push comes to shove, get out with you life or save a pet? Hmm, tough choice for some people.

    Yes I know it's a tough choice, but some of us are remaining, and we were just wondering what the situation is and whether at the end of this there will be pets in distress somewhere that could either be assisted (don't know how - medicine, food, or a bullet if it comes to it) - just trying to gain figures.
    A friend of mine is in Sharm and says the expats who are fleeing are dumping their pets and her home is like a zoo now.
    I do keep my kitties fattened just in case though.... delicately fried kitty with fava beans and a nice (non-alchoholic) chianti .....
