What does gato mean in Portuguese? I know it means cat, like in spanish, but i am thinking it means something else too. I keep seeing Homen Gato on this one site that has different groups and stuff you can join, and it's under like the culture and society section. Therefore, i am thinking maybe it means gay or something like that but i don't know. I mean i am sure it probably doesn't mean cat-man, haha. Well, please clarify! Thanks!
