Cat Memorial: Max
I saw Max at a PetSmart store in Oct of 2010 and knew right then and there I was not leaving without him. He was about 4 months old and he had a very special quality about him.
Max loved to play fetch. I'd toss the toy of his choice and he would bring it back to me, head held high, prancing, to drop it at my feet every time. He would play for an hour or more at a time.
In the mornings Max would wait for me to enter the hallway where upon seeing me, he would run into the living room and hide. I would pretend that I was looking for him by calling out his name as I searched in the kitchen and dinning room.
He would sneak up behind me by crawling on his belly with his ears back. When he got close he would meow loudly and go hide again.
Max would sit beside me and have a conversation. He would meow then I would mimic it and this would take place over and over again for a half hour or so. I never had a clue as to what he was saying, but he sure had a lot to say.
On June 29 we took him to the Vet for a follow up check up for a minor bacterial skin infection. The Vet gave him a shot of Convenia and Depo-Medrol which he had a bad reaction to.
We had to put him to sleep on June 30th at just one year old. I told myself that I would never put a cat to sleep, but in this case I had no choice. I deeply miss my bubby, my best friend. Max I will always love you.
