Max and his friend Othello
live at the Recycled Reader book store in Seattle, Washington. Max was born
in 1992 and lived at home for awhile before he came to live in the store.
He is a seasoned manager now, having been at the store since 1995. He is a
great lap cat; very friendly. He loves to be petted. His jobs around the store
include dusting the shelves with his fluffy tail and choosing titles for customers.
The latter he does by stretching out on a shelf and hanging a paw or tail
down to show just the right book.
Note: I went to visit Max and Othello in their old store (in
April of 1999) and found it empty. I was told by another store owner that
Recycled Reader had closed, but doing business on the internet.
