Maximus is such an extraordinarily sweet boy with such a gentle soul. Each time that he gazes into my eyes it makes my heart melt, and it fills me with such joy. As big as he is, and despite the fact that he has colossal feet and claws, he gently taps me on the shoulder when I walk by in order to signal that it is time for a good old fashioned Chausie affection session. No matter what I am doing, and no matter how busy that I may be-- I always stop and give him lots of love. His bold, deep grumbling purr is all the validation that I need to know that he's a happy boy, and I am just so grateful that I am the recipient of his affection.
