Max, My Giant Cat

This is my beautiful cat Max (he's 5) He is the one of the biggest house cats you could expect to see. Smart as a whip and very affectionate to people he knows. He's a Mau.

BTW, to post a picture, you must have it "hosted" somewhere. Your ISP usually provides some webspace, if not you can run a search on free web hosting. Once you get you pics on the web somewhere, point to the URL using the Img button you see when you reply.

heh-heh, he kept grabbing the camera strap and throwing the picture off.
Notice the huge fangs? They stick out of his mouth making him look like a bat-cat. Max is ultra-cool, suave and debonair. He is the Cary Grant of cats

He's around 25-30 pounds and over 4 ft. long from front paw to rear paw if I straighten him out (first photo gives you an idea) He is really big for a domestic cat, not fat or heavy so much, but long & tall....mind you a 30 pound cat is not light either! Sometimes I take him out on a dog harness in the summer, everybody stops to take a look.

From what I know Egyptian Mau's do grow to be fairly big, but Max is an exception, he is a giant. His mother really did resemble a bobcat, that's one of the reasons I got him. He is tough too. Nobody but nobody play fights with Max, not even me. I like my hands! His claws are kept trimmed but they are so big that he can cause damage without meaning to.

Bottom line though...Max is a big suck around me. He loves to sit on my lap and watch the animal shows on TV. Once my legs get numb, Max will curl up in one of my jackets. You can see how big his paws are from this shot. He also has extremely long legs and forearms. (do cats have forearms?)

oh my gosh he's so cute! Id love to cuddle up with him in my bed. I do that with my cat Patches, but she's a tad small to hug properly..

Thanks! He loves the camera. Here is a good shot I took of him this afternoon. He was bird-watching at the time.
