Mookie, domestic shorthair
Mookie is a male domestic shorthair cat being kept at Ellen M. Gifford Sheltering Home.
He already has had all of his shots, and he's neutered.
Here's what Mookie's friends at Ellen M. Gifford Sheltering Home think of him:
Mookie can be very affectionate and wants nothing more than to rub against legs and enjoy some polite conversation. We think the Mookster would prefer life without another cat. We think an experienced adopter, who knows a little about energetic male cat behavior, would be beneficial to all concerned as Mookie can be a little feisty when he feels like he is being ignored.

Notes from Nemo's caretakers:
My name's Nemo, and aren't I just the handsomest boy you've ever seen? Though I'm very slow to warm up with new people and strangers, I've been told I'm a total love once I get to know you. I sit on my office foster mom's lap while she works, and I also like sitting on the desk surveying the office while purring in her ear.
