My Buddy Max
I met Max about a year and 1/2 ago. I decided to go meet him after having the Maine Coon cat breed described to me by a co-worker. I asked the vet he was staying with if I could have a trial with him for a weekend before making a decision.
The first time I picked him up he “hugged” me and put his head on my shoulder. I said “if this is his temperament, I don’t think you guys are going to get him back from me”!
He honestly is the best cat I have ever owned. Although he needs my attention a little more than I care for (and will do whatever it takes to get me to point my attention in his direction)… I am so glad that he is a member of my family.
Max (named because he is “Max-Chill”) is much more of a lap cat than I was expecting after reading about the breed. Just about everything else I have read has hit the nail on the head though.
He really is a goofy, gentle, giant. Just about every time I think “wow, he is kind of scary” (because of his size)… he comes up with his mouse size mew and does something dumb.
I think he knows what he is doing though… I can almost hear him saying “how can you ignore me when I am so big and so darn cute at the same time”.
I highly suggest picking up a Max of your own if you get a chance.
Thanks for visiting and sharing. Nice story. If you have a photo please come back and upload it as I would love to see Max who seems to be a classic Maine Coon except for the lap cat bit.
