Ask Max Monday: Today Is A Good Day

ask-max-thompson-header

 

Today, doods, I want you to go out and have some fun. Or stay inside and have some fun. Just have fun. Today is my birthday, and my birthday should be a day for fun.

Y’all know that the People never really expected me to live this long. Just before I turned 4, when they brought Buddah home, I got super sick, which is like regular sick except everyone gets really excited and speaks in hushed tones about expiration dates and how it shouldn’t be time yet. The Woman said then that she would be very, very happy if I just made it to 13, the same age as had Dusty, the Cat Who Came Before Me.

Then everything else was happy bonus time. She started to hope for 15, the age that Ataturk, the Cat Who Came Before the Cat Who Came Before Me had, but she also didn’t want to be selfish.

But here I am.

Today, I am 15 years old.

Every day is a gift, the only present I want. And since I’m pretty healthy for an old guy, I may have a lot of those left.

So…go have fun. It’s my birthday.

    Happy Birthday, Max. Concatulations on getting to 15. Keep going, you have lots more years of fun ahead. Today was Calista Jo’s birthday as well. She’s only four. We’re having a party on our blog if you’d care to join us. Our Lily Olivia was hit by a car when she was four and wasn’t supposed to live through the night. She’s now 17. Some kitties are super strong and are survivors. You’re one of those, Max. All our best wishes. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Dear Max,
    Happy belated birfy day. Yesterday we were busy and couldn’t write to you because my sisfur had to go to the stabby lady house and they decided to keep her, well only until she’s better. She stopped eating and was dehydrated. She even lost two pounds. Her white count was high and they think she gots a fection or inflation, they said they don’t know why, it could also be from stress. They are afraid her liver might be in a fliver from not eating and her pan creases may be a problem too. Is this what you had many years ago? Humommy is sad and hopes sisfur gets better soon. Sisfur is only eight so she’s not real old. Last night the stabby lady said she’s a very sweet cat, but she’s not sweet to me and I kind of enjoy being the queen of the house, does that make me a bad kitty? Humommy said we are going to have to cut back on treats because the stabby lady charges a lot. Not fair! Anyway please send get better wishes to Macey even though she’s a doody head.
    Love Bella
