In the previous month, Tara, also known as @mickeythemanxkitty, was in the middle of picking up some patio stones when a gentleman approached her. He informed her about his neighbor who was in search of new homes for her cats. According to Tara, the neighbor had kittens she needed to give away because of their relocation, allowing them to take only one cat with them.
Tara, a rescuer and adopter of numerous cats and dogs, recently paid a visit to her friend’s family and discovered a unique kitten with curly ears and extra toes. Though she initially left after dropping off some items, the thought of the kitten lingered in her mind, prompting her to return. With such a distinct feline crossing her path, Tara couldn’t help but feel it was destiny.
Upon her return, the woman discovered that the only feline left for adoption was a kitten with an abundance of toes. The rest of the litter had already been taken in by loving families. The stones’ previous owner was worried that the neighbor might release the kitten into the wild, so the woman agreed to take care of the little guy. Max, as she named him, was only nine weeks old at the time and craved affection. He became an instant snuggle buddy, purring and meowing up a storm.
Upon Max’s arrival at his new home, he wasted no time in seeking affection from his human. It didn’t take long for him to figure out how to draw Tara’s attention by jumping onto her lap, chest, or climbing up her leg. Max’s meows and energetic movements soon caught the attention of other furry inhabitants such as Sully, a gentle rescue dog, Mira, a sweet wobbly tortoiseshell cat, and Mickey, a fearless scooter cat.
The day after I met him, I introduced Max to Mickey, a cat with Manx Syndrome. To my delight, they immediately formed a strong bond and started playing and wrestling together. Max’s energy seems endless, and it’s amusing to see Mickey’s reaction to his liveliness. Tara shared this anecdote with Love Meow.
After Max’s first visit to the vet, he was exhausted and overwhelmed. But luckily, Mickey sensed his need for comfort and snuggled up to him. Eventually, they became cuddle buddies. The owner even witnessed the heartwarming sight of Mickey grooming Max while he slept on top of him. It was a truly adorable moment.
Max was not in a hurry to make friends with everyone in the house. He took his time and eventually climbed over the kitty playpen to hang out with Sully, the dog. Sully was very patient with Max, and even enjoyed giving him licks. Max was a very feisty kitty, but Sully didn’t mind at all. Max also fell in love with Mira, the sweet wobbly cat.
Max is gradually getting acquainted with all the members of the household. Similar to Mickey, he fearlessly approaches everyone and enjoys close interactions. It appears that Mickey has been a mentor for Max, inspiring him to be confident and capable of achieving anything he sets his mind to. As the big brother figure, Mickey guides Max, teaches him how things work, and even tolerates his playful ambushes.
It’s been close to 21 days since I welcomed him into my home, and he has become an amazing member of our family. The thought that he could have potentially been abandoned on the streets fills me with dread. However, this can be avoided by getting our pets spayed or neutered.
A feline named Mr. Mittens is living like royalty in his new forever home. He enjoys constant affection from his human family and has plenty of furry companions to play and snuggle with whenever he desires. Don’t forget to share this heartwarming tale with your pals!
