Max, the Cat of the Day
Name: Max
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Domestic Shorthair
Home: Reno, Nevada, USA
   Max is probably the sweetest, gentlest cat I've ever owned. He glows when he's praised, loves to squeeze himself into small boxes and likes to be involved in whatever's going on in the house. If he gets mad at me, he walks over to the house plants and begins nibbling on them (he knows this will get my goat). He's very protective of a female cat I adopted about a year ago. He bathes her and always sticks close to her. He's a great friend.

    Max likes to play hide-and-go-seek and also 'hand monster' (my hand's the monster, Max is the get the picture). He sleeps at the foot of my bed every night and we usually end up competing for space on the bed. He absolutely loves bread (especially pancakes), though I don't let him have it very often as it's not great for his dental hygiene. He likes cat treats, but will only eat them while you're petting him. Max is a 'talker' and you can tell that he loves to be talked to. He's also big on eye contact. When Max looks at you, he really looks at you. More generally, he's extremely affectionate, loves to be held and pampered and is only too willing to pamper you right back! He also has a wonderful, musky smell! Max is just great.
