Some people say that you don’t choose a pet, they choose you. Taco, our 5-year-old Maine Coon mix did just that. While at our local animal shelter we entered a small room full of free roaming cats. Taco, who was about 6 months old at the time, immediately ran to us and laid on our feet. When visiting the other cats in the room he followed closely and kept laying on our feet. We left the room and he jumped in the window to watch us walk around the rest of the shelter. He waited there until we circled back around soon after. We got near the door and he ran to greet us again. It was clear to us that he had chosen us to be his guardians. Nowadays he spends his time doing typical cat things… sleeping and eating in our home at The Dorchester in Dallas, TX. He waits for us to get home and demands attention and cuddles constantly. The terms needy and clingy would be understatements to his temperament.
Max is 13 years old and lives at Alpine Village in LaVista, NE. He greets everyone he meets and likes to take walks in the park. He loves to cuddle and loves massages. Max went through a lot the last few years with his ailments, but he is a fighter. He means the world to me.
