On Cara Family Monday and in continuation of the celebration of Pet Memorial Day - we honour Max, you will live forever in our hearts. You were not a patient. You were family. We miss you Max - here is your story from your mom heart emoticon
I got Max when he was just a little orange kitten from a friend’s farm. I had just lost Mini, my orange tabby cat, and missed having an orange kitty around. Max was always quiet and easy going. He was almost always the only male cat in the household and felt that he was the king of the castle. The other cats that came and went through my household just let him believe the house was his castle. Max loved to go outside but he almost always stayed close to home. Just once, for some reason, he tried to cross the road and got hit by a car. I came home from school at lunchtime to hunt for him and found him worse for wear, close to home. I rushed him to the vet and loved and cared for him until he was right as rain, except for a few missing teeth. He had a few illnesses over the years but always got better quickly. In his later years, he loved to lay in the sun and nap. He had his favourite sunny napping spots inside as well as out. Over the years, he gave me many happy moments. In his last few days, his big heart just got tired and worn out. I will miss him terribly but will never forget him. I may get another orange kitty but it will never replace my Max.
