They are true brothers coming from the same litter. They are turning 11 today...
When mom & dad first moved to Indy, mom didn't have a job and was stuck all day alone. Dad thought it would be a good idea to get a companion for her and took her to the pet store (just to look... this was well before mom & dad discovered what puppies and kitties in pet stores go through).
Well they looked around and didn't see any kitties until they got to the front of the store. There were two black kitties on display at the front of the store. Mom said she had a hard time trying to pick which one to take and she was sad that one would be left behind (but didn't say anything). Dad being the good guy that he is picked the second kitty up too. He said that he couldn't bear to leave one behind all by his lonesome.
Thus Max & Miko found their furever home. Happy Birthday Max & Miko - you two are the best kitty brothers a pug could ask for!!
