Meet Max

Hello, furiends! Today is Caturday, and boy, oh boy, does Scruffy Paws have a big boy special to introduce you to. Please welcome Max to the Scruffy family and, hopefully, yours! You may have seen his picture on social media lately. He was an owner surrender along with his best pal, Ruby. Sweet Ruby crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but we promised her we would help Max find his furever family.

Max is a handsome tuxedo boy with massive mitts and extra toes! He is 8 years old and 20 lbs of pure love! He is the most laid back, the biggest, the mushiest couch potato, happy to binge-watch your favorite Netflix series with you. Max is known for being a drooly purr machine who enjoys cozy beds. He is so happy, in fact, that he can sometimes give little love nibbles. He will tolerate being held, but he isn't a fan...strong arms are required; remember, he is 20 lbs, after all. We ask that his new family be mindful of his curvy stature and not overfeed him. Max and Ruby had a special relationship - she would give him hugs, cuddles and often groom him, so we advise having another friendly cat companion for Max. He adores other cats, but we are unsure how he would be in a home with dogs or young children.
