“I think my cat might be a communist. He won’t shut up about Mao”

Mao Zedong should now be confused with “meow” (what a cat says), but there are jokes. “They fear the cat is a Communist, however, pointing out, ‘He’s a meow-ist’” was printed in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on May 20, 1968.

“My cat is a communist. All she ever talks about is Mao” was posted on the newsgroup misc.writing on March 9, 2003. “I think my cat might be a communist… Mao...Mao...Mao...Mao...” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 20, 2014. “I think my cat might be a communist.

Wikipedia: Mao Zedong
Mao Zedong ˈmaʊ (d)zəˈdʊŋ/; Chinese: 毛泽东; December 26, 1893 – September 9, 1976), also known as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary who became the founding father of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), which he ruled as the chairman of the Communist Party of China from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976. Ideologically a Marxist–Leninist, his theories, military strategies, and political policies are collectively known as Maoism.

20 May 1968, Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette, “Sunny Side Up” by Dave Devenport, pg. A-15, col. 3:
According to my friends in Milwaukee, the popular Milwaukee County Zoo has a new addition in the “big cat” section—a Chinese leopard.

They fear the cat is a Communist, however, pointing out, “He’s a meow-ist.” (Ouch)
