This very dignified creature is Max, CityStream's Pet of the Week at the Seattle Animal Shelter.  Max is about 10 years old and is a little persnickety about how you pet him (and how much) and he will let you know you've gone too far by aiming a little swipe at your hand.  Nothing harsh, just a little reminder to treat him with respect.  Max is a very nice cat, and look at that amazing mane!  Max is waiting for his perfect match at the shelter now - stop by and make friends with him (carefully) today!
