Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Apr 23, 2015
So we got max at only 6 weeks old, and we found him on a listing online. We don't usually do that kind of thing, but they had kittens and couldn't care for all of them, so naturally we felt guilty and I checked out the home. It was a loving home with just not enough room for all the pets, so I took him gladly! We had also just moved to the area, so it was a big step for my husband and I (not married at the time).
Max has proven to be an amazingly loyal, smart, playful, and wonderful cat. He is temperamental at times (food, and play) and he also can be a bit of a grump and sort of attack your feet or something when he wants something, but he's been great for our family.
One last thing to note- we had his front claws removed. I know this is a touchy subject and some vets don't do it anymore, but he has had ZERO ill-effects from it. He still scratches his post on his kitty tower, and has never experienced pain (aside from the week of discomfort). Just my .02 cents on the subject.
Love our kitty!!
