10 year old • Female
Maxine is a long- haired black and white tuxedo beauty! She is very petite; she has the cutest little ears with small curly ear tufts, giant white paws with toe tufts, and a great plume tail. She has many features of Maine Coon kitty, but is way too small. Her sister is long-haired with Siamese coloration, so who knows?
Maxine is a quite a charmer. She is a bit of a minx, with high spirits and a taste for adventure. Max loves to climb and explore new things; if she were outdoors, she is the one who would get stuck up in a tree high above her skill level.
Maxine does love her human companionship, and playfully competes with her gentle sister Alaska for lap space. She has a a soft and affectionate side, and is a wonderful companion. She sticks so close to her person that she sometimes finds herself underfoot at just the wrong moment. But she never scolds for almost tripping over her, she just puts her head up for more petting.
Max is looking for someone with enough room in their heart and home for her and her sister Alaska. Otherwise she does not seem to like other kitties. Their ideal situation would be a quiet home with several gentle humans. Max is litter trained, spayed, FELV/ FIV negative and microchipped.
Maxine and her sister Alaska were surrendered to a local animal shelter in 2012, and were totally heartbroken to lose their human family. They were adopted but came back to IAR last year through no fault of their own. They have tolerated numerous transitions in their life with good cheer and are now eager to find their permanent home.
