I don’t really think loving your pet deserves its own day, but according to the google search on what national/international days/month this is, JAnuary 20th came up as Love your Pet day.
So I’ll talk about my Pet. Who I’ve shown before.
This is Max. Max is a four year old cat. We believe he is partially Maine Coon because he seems to have quite a few of their characteristics. He’s a very friendly cat, likes to hang around humans, particularly ones who are a little older and will let him cuddle without trying to make him play with them as the younger set do.
He likes to sleep next to computer uses, putting his paws around their arms (as you can see above) as if to keep them from leaving. He also sucks his thumb at times and purrs realllly loudly.
We got Max after another family found he didn’t quite fit in with their other animals who weren’t so fond of Max. We agreed to take in what we told was a kitten. Max was about six months old at the time, and we had assumptions.
Max was a big kitty. He looked like a fully grown cat at six months so we had to get new things, because all of the litter pans and stuff were for small kittens. Now he’s about 12 lbs, so he’s still a hefty cat. He could probably sit on my sister’s cat and we’d never know. He’s still really friendly, and cries when he doesn’t hear human voices or see us. We end up leaving the TV on when we are away just to keep him company.
He’s seriously one of the most cuddly cats I’ve ever met. He is actually sitting next to me as I type, one paw on the laptop, purring away, sucking on his paw.
