This is Max, our featured pet of the week now residing at MEOW Cat Rescue shelter in Houghton. He is a Domestic Short Hair red tabby who is three years young and looking for a soft place to land after being abandoned by his previous owner.
Max is currently residing in one of the free roaming rooms at the shelter and spends a good deal of time staring at the door - just waiting for someone to come in so he can make friends! He is a stranger to no one and a friend to everyone. Max is confident and adjusts easily and effortlessly to new situations. He is playful, loves toys and....he even comes when he is called!
Max, like all cats at MEOW has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and tested for feline viruses FIV/FeLV. His feline-ality assessment has scored him as a Leader of the Band: "I'm a cat who does everything in a big way. I not only like to be in the middle of things - I like to lead the parade. I'm an adventurous cat, but I'll still make plenty of time to show you my affectionate side. I'm the demonstrative type, you might say. Want a cat that's brimming with confidence? That's me!"
Can you think of a better way to spend the holidays and long winter ahead than to have Max at your side? If you’re looking for a feline companion, come and meet him. See www.meowcatrescue.org or call 425-822-6369.
