Pet of the Week


Max is operating at a maximum level of feline cuteness. We suspect when he's adopted and settles in, he will be quite the ham, demonstrating how fantastic he truly is. Our Max thinks every person is a new friend waiting to be made. He will happily request a chin rub or a scratch behind the ears the moment you meet him! With in just a few seconds this handsome orange and white tabby cat will begin purring immediately! Couldn't you get used to a fun, loving kitty like him? He gets along well with kids of all ages. If Max sounds like one in a kitty million, meet him at our adoption center today or call 859 873 5491 for more information.
