Max is a sweet Russian blue cat, with a hard past and a bright future.
Max was a half house cat, half street cat when his rescuers picked him up. They had been seeing him for months, always trotting after them or other neighbors. He quickly fell in love with their 7 year old girl. Come the winter, they noticed that Max's disposition was changing for the worse. After a few weeks, they found him again and his owner said she was moving so she had put him on the street so he could get used to that. Once inside, Max got sick. His poor body was only surviving so once inside he was safe enough to get sick and HEALTHY.
Max is still learning how to be a good kitty. He has come a long way. He used to attack a leg when he wanted to play, and now he knows to use a soft paw. When he first came inside, toys scared him---now he has a dangerous addiction to playing. He loves wand toys, learning how to self play and try to steal cheddar cheese!!
Max would do best with an experienced adopter as his moods change quickly when he is unsure of himself. He has some separation anxiety (clearly, he never knew when he was going to put outside or left alone indefinitely). Max wants to be part of his kitty foster brother's and sister's lives, but has not fully figured out how to interact yet. He can go to a home with another cat, but it must be a patient kitty who's good and tolerant with other cats. He is usually in the room with his family, though not fully committed to cuddling. Some days he snuggles and other days it is enough that he is just in the room with you.
He likes children (he loves his 7 year old girl). So a family with older children who are on the quieter side might be best for him.
Max is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.
