Meet Moomoo, an Adoptable Mini-Master of Mischief at the Animal Welfare League

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) has plenty of pets for adoption, but few with as many tricks and devious tactics as the shelter’s own master-thief: Moomoo.

Moomoo, or Moo as he’s known by his friends, is a two-year-old domestic shorthair. Like Remmy, the stately gentleman, Moo is a tuxedo cat. But unlike Remmy, Moo has a devious streak.

“Moo is a mischief kitty and loves to find sneaky hiding places,” said Gina Hardter, director of marketing for the AWLA. “But even if you can’t see him, he’s there…and can be cajoled into the open with some tasty treats!”

Hardter said Moo loves to hang out near people and roll over to show his belly. This might seem like an invitation to be pet, but Hardter said this is another one of Moo’s traps. The AWLA even put together a quiz to help prospective owners learn whether or not to pet Moo’s belly.

But this doesn’t mean Moo isn’t a people person. The AWLA said Moo sometimes enjoys lounging near the office staff and staring up lovingly.

As a bonus, Moo’s adoption fees have been pre-paid through December as part of the shelter’s Home for the Pawlidays, so he can come home to a new family at now cost.
