Ask Max Monday: It’s Friday; I love you guys

It’s Friday, 13 November 2o2o This is the Woman. It might be easier to go read the post over at Max’s blog, but I’m sure you know just by the tone what this is. Max was doing well until he suddenly wasn’t. His pain level seemingly exploded overnight and today he could barely walk, couldn’t […]

Purrsonally, Max, I think you should have your Tardis, but I hope it’s not for awhile yet, dood. Here’s a question: Do you think that cats KNOW a cat-loving […]

Ask Max Monday: State of Me #4,391

Dude, Mrs H and I send once more our sincerest condolences. As to urns, I was wondering why they can’t do them like us? By that I mean in our likeness, size shape and colour. That would be so cool, though I can see some humans (like Mrs H) getting confused when they lose their […]

Ask Max Monday: We’re Okay

There were no questions this week—and it’s okay, I understand why—so I almost decided to just let it slide this week, but I thought it might be a good idea to say something anyway, to let y’all know we’re doing okay here. We still feel blindsided and we miss Buddah with a ferocity I never […]

Ask Max Monday: The Pest Was The Best

This is not what I wanted to write this week. I wanted to answer questions, I wanted to find some funny, I wanted to tell everyone that Buddah was hanging in there and doing well. I wanted so many things, but not this. He just didn’t get any better. We had some ups and downs […]
