Max and Oscar came into the shelter with a little sister as well but we shortly found that these 2 boys liked to tease and torture their little sis a bit too much. Best buds as well as partners in crime these 2 are absolutely bonded together and enjoyed making their little sis cry and hide from them as much as possible. Because of this we moved the little girl over to be with a couple of other little girls and she is much happier. At just a little over 2 years of age they are plump, active and into everything. This trio proved to be too time consuming as well as too costly for their original owners once the newness wore off so they decided to bring them into the shelter. Driving them in to us in a cardboard box they arrived with nothing but each other to remind them of home. Adjusting quickly however we quickly found that Max, and Oscar too, loves people and loves attention! They are bright eyed and prepared to beg for attention any time anyone is nearby.
These 2 are caged together and could use a few big hammocks in their cage. I have a couple bigger ones but with washings and the way they like to dig in the hammocks the extras would be welcome.
Eating cheap cat food or Walmart food was what these guys have been eating all of their lives, though it is crap food, you would not know it to look at Max. His dark eyes are bright and sparkling, his fur rich and thick and he has a good bit of weight on him.
Max does not eat treats though he likes Purina one kitten and Marshalls food well. After Christmas we hope to find a forever home for Max and his brother.

Basic supplies like food, litter and cleaning supplies and soup ingredients are most desperately needed right now. Funds are extremely short as my husband just had to undergo brain surgery. He was ill and out of work all November and will be out of work for several months leaving little money right now for the basic supplies we need most on a daily basis.
Max has a Santa.
