Max and Thunder were adopted from Salt Lake County Animal Services in 2014. Here's an update from their family and how much they love them! Our staff loves to hear how adoption has changed lives of both pets and people.
We got these two about 5 years ago. Max is the black and
white one. He used to be Martin and his adoption photo showed him cowering in
the back of his kennel. He was skinny as a rail and estimated to be 3 years in
age. He was friendly and purred instantly when pet. His first couple of months
at home we had to hide the loaves of bread because we used to find them ripped
open in the living room and the bread eaten. What kind of life had he
previously had that he knew how to do that? He's fatter and still kind, but
turns his nose up at anything but his Purina cat chow. We've had to take him to
the vet a time or two and we always get complimented on what a good cat he is.
He"s never growled, hissed, bit, or scratched a vet tech even
during the uncomfortable parts of an exam. He's been absolutely lovely to my
Thunder is the tabby. His name used to be Poseidon and he
had one of those glam photo shots. He was standing, eyes wide, ears
perked, with shiny Mardi Gras beads draped about his neck. In person he
was cute, fluffy, and soft. We found out he had been adopted but recently
returned after a few days. We took him home and marveled how anyone could take
this lovable guy back. Turns out Thunder is a furniture scratcher. He tore up my brand new couches and chair that I had saved up for months to buy. Alas, kitty
claws, double sided tape, and a brand new 5 foot tall cat tree did nothing to
help. I even bought some cat calming spray. To be fair he does use the cat
scratchers. It's just too bad he equally uses my couches. We love him though. He's
unique in that he doesn't mind being touched or held. He'll rest his head on
you like a dog. I've never known a cat to let you touch him on your
terms, not their's. He's a sweet boy.
