Southern California Abyssinian Rescue

Southern California Abyssinian Rescue, Inc. (S.C.A.R.) is a network of dedicated volunteers who serve the Southern California area and the CFA Southwest Region in rescuing and finding homes for Abyssinian and Somali cats and kittens that are in need.
As we are not a shelter, all cats are kept in foster homes until a permanent home is found.

If someone wants to rehome their aby because of a behavioral issue, we work with them first to find a solution so the cat remains in the home. If nothing works, we will place the cat with a well trained foster volunteer for evaluation and then, adoption.

S.C.A.R. also takes in abys from local shelters, rehabilitates them and finds them their furrever home. Sometimes the cats are strays, sometimes turned in by an owner. Many of these cats require visits to the vet and follow up medication and we rely on donations.

Adopting a rescued Abyssinian is a very rewarding experience. Most rescues are the wonderful, loving, delightful cats with who we all are familiar. Occasionally rescues can come with health or behavioral problems. Do not let this deter you. With patience and love these cats can become an important part of your life.

We require an application be filled out before any adoption. We only adopt within Southern California.

Thank you for adding your Aby rescue!

Thank you for adding your Abyssinian rescue's information.

I especially love how you are willing to tackle behavioral problems so that the cat can stay at home. After all the Aby is a very lively breed, and this may cause some trouble if the cat gets bored... (Well, just talking from my own experience - I just spent the whole evening yesterday trying to work with my computer while Pipsa, our Aby girl - the same who is standing in the midst of the flowers on the Aby Rescue starting page - just kept on carrying her stick for me to throw. No point in ignoring her - she just sings like an alarm clock until I throw the stick LOL :D)

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at and

On my other website he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
