Maximum Maximus Bids You a Happy Friday!
Maximus is a Chausie- one of those hybrid breed domestic cats intentionally bred with wild cats (specifically bred with the non-domestic Felis Chaus). We adopted 3 male Chausie cats (Oliver and Jasper are the other two)- all of whom are brothers, and all of whom were dumped off at high-kill shelters by the people who bought them from a breeder. Hybrid cats are different than regular domestic breeds because they often display many of the traits from their wild lineage, and as such they certainly aren't for everyone. What saddens me is the fact that people often seek more exotic animals for a variety of reasons- chief among them is the idea of owning something a bit more wild. Sadly this is why so many exotics end up in shelters because the idea of these sweet souls often exceeds the reality of living with animals that may have different needs or impulses. Of course we feel blessed to share our lives with these rare kitties, but I can't rescue all of them out there.
Maximus wishes for you to have a lovely weekend!
