Mike Miller owns a cat named Maximus.
An NBA Catwatch report.
I have confirmed that Denver Nuggets guard Mike Miller is a cat owner.
- I was just sitting at my computer watching the Oct 28th Denver / Houston game when I started wondering if maybe Mike Miller owned a cat. I searched through his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
- After finding a picture of a cat in what appeared to be Mike Miller's house, I attempted to verify the story with a second source.
- I found an August, 2013 post confirming cat ownership on Mike Miller's wife's Twitter account.
- With verification of cat ownership, but no evidence of a name, I reached out to sources.
