My story

Max is a special little guy. He is very energetic. Max plays hard and sometimes gets overenthusiastic. He loves anything he can chase and the track ball. Max is a jumper and will need a cat tree. When Max is tired, he loves to cuddle but remember, he is a kitten. If cuddling is your thing you will have to wait till nighttime to cuddle. He also prefers to eat off paper plates both dry and wet. Max paws his water bowl before drinking so you may want a mat under it. Max NEEDS to be an only animal. Max's adopter will need to understand that Max is very high energy and overstimulated very easily.
