Max #1


We have had so many Max’s at our sanctuary, both little and big, we’ve had to start adding a number to their name!

Max #1 arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2006 when he was just two years old. We’d been contacted by a Bengal rescue group in Colorado, where a large breeder was closing down and needed to place the cats that were not adoptable.

They had several hybrid F3 Bengals who were unable to be socialized for adoption.  Max and his sister Grace were brought to the sanctuary to live out their lives here.

Learn more about hybrid cats and why we do NOT support breeding them.

Life at the Sanctuary

Gracie has since passed away, but Max has been living with another Bengal cat named Tiger.  They have an indoor and outdoor area that includes perches, a hammock, logs, dens, and an in-ground pool to play in.  They also have the comforts of an indoor area in their bungalow. It protects them from the harsh Minnesota winter and warm summer days.

How You Can Help

Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small hybrid like Max – can be quite expensive. Hybrids usually come to us with special needs, genetic and/or medical issues due to their breeding.

Our sponsorship program helps support the cats’ care costs and allows you to form a special bond with them. Would you consider becoming Maui’s sponsor parent?

Or even a one time donation toward his care would be so appreciated. It’s easy to do using the buttons at the top of this page.

Thank you for caring about the little wild ones, too!
