To the left is Max. He came to us via animal rescue folks. He is at least 10 years old but we've had him for about 5 1/2 years. He is a mellow sweetheart. He yearns to go outside. But he managed to get himself lost once or we wouldn't have him, so we keep him in. He loves to be on the lanai and sometimes my kids will take him out on a leash. That's fine with him.
And that is Shadow curled up on the cushion. She came to us three years ago as a stray kitten. She can be very sweet also, but she terrorized poor Max like you wouldn't believe at first. And mellow Mr. Max would just put up with it. She still will tackle him, but I think they have come to an understanding about it. Now this one has absolutely no interest in the great outdoors. I like to think it is because she knows a good thing when she found it. She is quite content to hang out with us inside, thank you very much.
