Hi… my name is Makumbo.

Adopted April 24, 2016

I’ll bet you didn’t know that “makumbo” means “legs” in the Shona language! And I’ll also bet that my mom didn’t know that I’d grow up to fit that name perfectly either! I’m a sleek, velvety black long-legged boy who came to TALGV from an overcrowded situation along with ten other black cats. At first I was pretty shy, but now that I’ve been here a while, the volunteers are showing me that the social life really is the best life, and I look forward to visitors who’ll sit in my room and get lost in my luxuriously soft coat and delightful persona. Turns out it only took attention, affection, and a little patience to transform me, so why not help me continue my metamorphosis on your lap?
