I have no idea why anyone would have abandoned this kitten. Yes, kittenhood can be annoying but they do eventually outgrow that. But this little kitten is such a sweetheart! He loves to be loved. He sits in my lap when I am on the computer (so if you get a weird message from me, it is probably because Max helped me!) I am not sure who rescued who - Max has filled a spot in my life that was left empty when I lost Pudge.
