Me and my human mommy binge watched Dr. Who all day and evening, too. I was nice and let her up to use the litter box room a few times, and to feed me.
It was the BEST! Dr Who and treats all day and evening!
But I have a question.
How many more sleeps till the new season?
Good news! Only, like, 35,079 sleeps until it starts again! Everything I read says “spring 2017” so I figure March or April will be the start of at least 12 episodes. I’m looking forward to it more than my own birthday, and since I turn 16 which means I’m old enough to drive, that’s kinda big.
Dear Max, Im a human but I have three furbabies. Why do cats like to sit in boxes so much? Even boxes that are not big enough for them to lay down in, just sit in them? Why do they do this? And then just stare at me while they are sitting in the box like I am supposed to do something about it? Why?
There’s only one answer for this, Barb, and the answer is, “because.” There’s no other reason. Just because. We see a box and think, “There’s a box. Should I sit in it? Of course I should. WHY NOT?” There’s no reason not to, so of course we sit in it. Just because.
Now, your kitties are staring at you for two reasons: one, why are you not sitting in a box, too? And two, why are you not getting me a better box?
There’s always a better box.
Get yourself a box to sit in. You’ll understand. In fact, I bet when you were small and sticky, you sat in boxes. And why? BECAUSE!
It’s really not rocket science, unless you get in the box and pretend you’re in a rocket, and then it totally is, which if fine because it’s a lot of fun and you get to go places. In fact, there’s a box in the other room and I am going to go sit in it. Maybe I’ll send myself to outer space. Or I’ll time travel. Or just sit there, because sitting is a fine thing to do.
Max, WTactualF was going on last night? BIG BOOMIES! It ws awful.
Dood, it was totally awful. But every year, people do that, they go outside just before the old year croaks and the new one is born, and they set booming things on fire and go ahhh and oooh and just generally upset the whole neighborhood. I’m just about convinced that these people don’t understand that the new year is a BABY and babies don’t like loud booming things. All they’re doing is starting things off in a scary way, and seriously, we need this new year to not be as scary as last year.
Max, what are your resolutions for this new year?
Eat delicious things, ignore my weight, take better naps, and have more fun than should be legal. I started today with eating bacon. That was super delicious. I’d like more, in fact.
Max…I keep water by my bed, and every night my cat drinks out of it. He has his own water dish, so why?
I think the real question is why do you keep his water cup by your bed?
Sure, he has a water dish…that sits out all day and collects spit and dust and tiny little air cooties. The cup you put out every night has fresh water that hasn’t been contaminated. Plus, you want it, so of course he’s going to drink from it, because that’s what we do.
Maybe you need to borrow a sippy cup from a toddler. Those have lids.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, DOODS!
