I'm Max. When I was adopted almost 9 years ago, Da Mom and Da Dad named me Maximus.
I didn't grow into my name. I'm more like a "Minimus"...but it's all good...they just call me Max and it suits me just fine.
I wanted my own space to write and given that my paws create a spell check nightmare, Da Mom has agreed to write it out for me.
She's good like that.
