A Domestic Short Hair named Maddox has been adopted at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Domestic Short Hair (short coat)
Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Young
Color: Black
Sex: Male


Maddox has never met a stranger. He just loves everyone, and will run up to you purring and ask to be petted. He's the same way with both people and cats. Maddox is lovely with other cats who are shy, because he just wants to be friends with everyone. He even loves dogs. Born in just June 2016, he came from an Arizona animal hospital. He had some damage to his urethra as a tiny kitten. He has recently had surgery to correct the damage, but he is still prone to urinary tract infections and some leakage. Maddox is a fearless little guy who doesn't know he's special needs - he just thinks he's special. He would be a delightful addition to any home.
