We just picked up Max, a 10 week old orange tabby, from the SPCA today, I didn't say anything beforehand because they were giving us a hard time and I didn't know if we were going to adopt the little guy. After talking with my vet, it turns out that everyone is given a hard time, there was nothing wrong with us. The cat is awesome, he was nervous and scared for all about 5 minutes after getting here, and then just acted like he's been here his whole life. It's completely different than Sophie, our 3 year old silver tabby, who takes two weeks to get used to any change. He is in confinement to one room away from Sophie for 10 days, both as a QT and to get them used to smelling each other. Well, without further ado, here's Max:

and more Max:

and my wife and max:

I wanted an orange tabby to match our 3 year old silver tabby, Sophie:

And what does Sophie think of this new little superstar? He is ughdorable. I want to bite his ears off.

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!

He's adorable! I adopted a cat just like that when I was younger and his name was Max too!

What a cutie! He looks so soft--I just want to use him as a pillow (but I have found over the years that kitten pillows have claws, so I'll wait a couple of years till he mellows out :P)
