My black beast, Maxie, was smaller than my wristwatch the day we found him and his sister under a wet bush near our apartments in MA. Momma cat had them there and then left when the sprinkler system soaked the bush. They still had umbilical cords attached. Maybe two days old. These were taken a week or so after we found them.
That was 12 years ago. Today Maxie is a 26lb beast (on a diet and losing weight slowly). His sister Miss Tortie is getting to be an old lady and is slim and fit. Both excellent cats.
Maxie's full name is Maxito Benito Juarez. He even ran for President once and did well in the initial polls.
