Max usually slept upside-down
Even with five cats in the house now, Max's presence is dearly missed. He took a significant chunk of my heart with him when he died, the pain of his absence remains vivid while the joy of his soul also forever resides in my heart. Entering into the plentiful memories brings many tears, a testament to the bond that forever connects us.
When I'm loving on one of my cats or engaging in TNR work, I often think of Max and my heart fills with gratitude. Prior to Max I was a staunch dog person with little respect for cats. I always dreamed of getting a dog but before that happened, Max entered my life and quickly opened my heart to the amazingness of cats. There's no going back, no way, no how.
Max loved to roll in the dirt and gravel when I took him for walks in the yard.
I love you my dear Max, and I miss you immensely. I eagerly await the day to be reunited with you in heaven.
