Moo is a beautiful, black and white cow cat who is a big flirt! Check out this video to see for yourself!
This petite kitty can often be be seen at the shelter rubbing up against visitors. But she particularly loves attention after she settles into a comfy bed. That's when she purrs up a storm. Sometimes Moo would rather just sit near you, so an experienced cat owner who will recognize her moods and body language would be best for her. Moo is super cute and funny and once she gets to know you, Moo will come running up to greet you. Wouldn't you want to see this little face when you come home from work?
The Gifford Cat Shelter is a cageless, no-kill facility founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford.
The shelter is a pioneer in creating an environment that does not confine cats to small, movement-restricting cages.
