Hanso was adopted at 6 months old from a rescue in Northern California. At that time he had been through 3 families (though, I can't imagine why) and was having trouble finding a forever home. A roommate of mine at the time was completely smitten with Hanso and demanded I adopt "that kitty!" The rest is history from there.
Hanso has been on 4 cross-country road trips and just loves riding in the car. He has also been slowly going blind since I adopted him due to retinal degeneration. He copes very well and still manages to chase and hunt birds on his supervised visits outside. He is the cat that made me love cats, and he makes friends with everyone he meets. He doesn't seem to have the same stand-offish cat-itude that many felines possess.
His favorite activities include: sleeping in small spaces, chasing paper balls and running up and down the stairs like they are a jungle gym.
