Meow! My name is Max
I am already neutered and housetrained.
Washington, D.C.- Suburban Virginia/Maryland Area inquiries only, please!
No longer available but don't count me out yet!
Max and his brother, Ben, were adopted from FFGW as kittens and returned in November 2006 because of a new husband with allergies and a dog that the boys considered a frightening monster. While we initially thought the boys should be adopted as a pair, fate intervened. A staff member at the vet hospital where the boys were being boarded fell in love with Ben and adopted him, leaving Max much happier alone in his kitty cage but still in need of a real home. Max was physically in great shape but somewhat emotionally scarred from all the changes in his life. He's hoping for a gentle, patient, cat savvy human to help him find his true self again. Please give this boy the chance he so deserves.
Update 12/29/11: After almost a year at the vet hospital (and several unsuccessful interviews by prospective adopers), Max found refuge with just the special person he sought, an FFGW foster mom. She helped Max rediscover his purr and joie de vivre. But as things turned out, re-adoption was not in the cards for Max. A recent check-up to investigate a sudden weight loss gave us the sad news that Max has lymphoma. Max and his foster mom have had a long talk on the subject and they have decided to abandon the adoption idea. Instead, Max will spend the rest of his days--may they be many and purr-filled-- with his mom and foster siblings. Purrs to you, little big man!
