The beautiful white Hamo is actually quite shy, but if it’s a camera he’s posing for then he’ll ham it up. Shy though he is, Hamo loves to be stroked and now that he’s in a smaller area with his best bud, Eso, he has become more and more affectionate.

Amicable, gentle and friendly with other cats, Hamo is a perfect complement to the all-black, also-shy Eso, not only in color, but in temperament. The hopes are that the two can find a home together, but we’d pull them apart so they could find homes rather than see them spend their lives in a cage.

Hamo is only about 4 years old, and though he would likely not fare well around small children, he would make an excellent companion for a single person, couple or mature family, people that would not mind his initial timidity and not impose themselves on him. In any case, he’s far too beautiful to do a life sentence in the pen.
