Max the cat, exhibiting classic feline disdain for his burgeoning celebrity, sauntered into the living room of Kathryn Gress' Orefield home and sprawled in front of a poster-sized drawing of himself. Full Story

I want to thank the Mr Sheehan and Morning Call for writing this wonderful story about our former rescue cat, Max.

Max touched my family as well as the other volunteers associated with the Cat Shack. I'm very happy to know that Max continues to reach people through his work at the Gresses ranch in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

I hope the other Morning Call readers enjoy this upbeat story about a little cat's rise from trash to treasure!

Thank you,
Cat Shack volunteer

Why all these dog & cat stories lately?
Has MCALL been bought by the ASPCA or PETA?

The dead dog "investigated" by police,
The kennel survey story,
The "Max" the cat story,.....

What a wonderful coverage your paper did on Max. His story of abandament is not unique in city neighborhoods. Our daughter and the other members of the Catshack group do a wonderful job of rescuing and placing these animals that would otherwise not survive. We hope that Max's story would encourage people to seek other solutions to pets that no longer fit into family plans. Spay/neuter programs go a long way to keeping the pet population under control and help to stop the starvation and suffering of abandoned animals.
Keep up the good work Morning Call of informing people of alternatives and showing how results can be positive for all concerned.

Kathy & Ben-what a great story to hear about Max. It's great to hear he's doing so well and helping people in the process too. What you and your organization are doing is a wonderful thing and it's always good to read stories like this. Keep up the great work you all are doing. I hope Max wins! He's got my vote.

Readers please check out Kathy & Ben Gress's website by clicking on the link at the end of the article. You'll understand then why these stories make the paper - worthwhile reading for sure.

Two years ago, a woman brought 2 female kittens to my daughter's girl scout meeting. The kitties were sisters and part of a family of cats found living under an abandoned truck. These two were still unadopted.

Well, I said "OK". These two cats made a wonderful addition to our family. I have no regrets!

This is an awesome story! Thanks to Theresa and her family for rescuing the cat, and to Kathy and Ben for giving him a home. The Cat Shack has many cats up for adoption with similar stories who are looking for forever homes (check them out on Petfinder.com ) They are doing an GREAT job there!!! Thanks MC for printing some positve stories!
