The 6-year-old cat was adopted by Emily Shotter, who found her in an animal charity in Oman in 2014 and gave her a new forever home. Moet had been born to an unlicensed breeder and lost her sight due to neglect at a pet shop. She had been left in a dirty cage with no food, no water, no bed, and no toys, which is why she got sick and went blind. The cat had been rescued, vets removed what was left of her eyes, and saved her life. Emily met Moet 6 days after her surgery. That’s when she decided to take the Persian cat in, and the two eventually ended up living together. “Moet is a bit of a diva and a sassy girl. While she’s generally very sweet-natured, she hates to be bored and will squeak (not meow) for attention incessantly!” Emily explained in an interview for Bored Panda. Now, Moet gets spoiled and lives like royalty. Emily manages Moet’s online store and donates all of the profits to help stray cats and dogs in Oman via a volunteer group called Omani Paws.

Emily Shotter started posting photos of her gorgeous Persian rescue just two years ago, in 2018. Since then, her following has grown immensely.
Moet now has over 53k fans on Instagram, nearly 10k followers on Facebook, and over 37k supporters on Twitter.
“If I’m ever on the phone… well, a nightmare.” Emily told Bored Panda more about how Moet tries to get her attention.
“She doesn’t like me speaking to others, so the squeak-meow gets voiced loudly and without a break.”
“And in fact, when I’m on work video calls or in virtual meetings, she can typically be heard in the background. I never know whether to laugh or apologize!”
“Anyway, I guess because she can’t see, she gets bored more easily, so lots of playtimes is a must.”
“Moet loves her food and her favorite treats are Thrive freeze-dried treats and Nutripockets. She also loves to go out in the garden, which I’ve had fully enclosed for her safety.”
Emily Shotter added that the volunteer group that she’s a part of, Omani Paws, has been lobbying the government for years to implement animal welfare legislation. “There is some, but it only applies to farm animals and not pets. We desperately need this.”
“So far, the group has had no luck, but the efforts will not stop and in the meantime, the group and supporters do a huge amount to help out animals – relying on donations. Plus Moet donated 100% of her book and store profits to the group.”
