Max is a 1½-year-old black male domestic short-haired mix cat. He weighs about 12 pounds.
He was brought in because his brothers weren't so nice to him. He was the smallest of the two and they would pick on him.
Max is shy and a little scared, but have patience. Once he feels more comfortable, he'll be the best lap cat ever.
He's sweet and loving and just needs some time and space to get to that point.
All animals are health checked, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
