Biso the cat had squeezed into the hole in the wall at the Mohamed Naguib metro station as a kitten in 2010, but then soon became to big to escape. For the next five years, Biso lived behind that wall because tearing down the wall was considered destruction of public property.
Biso survived thanks to an elderly man named Uncle Abdo, who gave the trapped cat water and fed him scraps of food every day. Finally when Biso’s plight became known, a social media campaign helped open the hole in the wall to free Biso. Unfortunately, Biso then took off so no one knows where he went. Hopefully Uncle Abdo will find Biso and be able to care for him once more.
