Hi, I’m Max.  I was a stray kitten living near an apartment complex.  Some children there were mean to me and I became very frightened.  I was rescued and brought to Standish. Despite loving care by the volunteers I have trouble trusting people, so I have grown up here and am now a permanent resident.

If you would like to sponsor Max or any of our wonderful cats,  please email or call 781-834-4663.
