You're simply not going to meet a nicer cat than Mao. He's a talkative and handsome fellow who loves people and gets along great with other cats. Mao has been through some tough times; for the first six years of his life, he had a family and home along with his twin sister, Ming. But then through no fault of his own, his family was forced to surrender their pets. Mao was so sad and scared when he first came to the Goathouse a year-and-a half ago, but he's settled in now, and enjoys napping on top of a cage in the Studio building and being petted by volunteers. He's not a needy cat, but he's oh-so grateful when anyone pays attention to him. His former owner told us that Mao is great with children - he's playful yet gentle, and loves to play fetch just like a dog! His sister, Ming, has been adopted, and we really hope that someone will fall in love with Mao and give him a home of his very own too. Come meet him soon! DOB 3/2004.
