Max entered employment in 2007 after straying in. His black tiger stripes and playful nature encouraged the staff to try to re-home him but after some weeks Max had wound his way into the hearts of the staff and they decided he could stay to deter rodents. He quickly made himself at home visiting various main street shops every day and was often seen on the footpath of a morning waiting to greet his many admirers and fans as they went by.
To earn his keep, he kept the mice at bay and wrote a column in our newsletter. He had his own email address and was the first point of contact for the clinic in the electronic media. This spread his fame and he often got emails as well as cards and gifts at Christmas. This position has now been filled by Max's protege Talon, who is proving worthy of the trust and responsibility. However, the email address and article in the newsletter have been kept in Talon's predecessors' name as a memorial to our much loved Max.
