Goose was an awesome brown tabby domestic shorthair. He and his brother Maverick were adopted from the Camden County Animal Shelter in December 1998 at the age of 2 months old. In 2001, Goose and his family moved to the Chicago area, and in 2002, were joined by rescue brother Merlin. In 2011, they all moved to Virginia. At the age of 13, Goose developed an inoperable tumor in his mouth and after a valiant fight, lost his battle with cancer on March 16, 2012.
