Ask Max Monday: Of Mice and Breath and FOOD

My clowder recommends Fancy Feast Savory Centers. I will eat anything, but our geezers (oops I mean wise elders) really like these flavors and they are very soft and wet. The Mom says they are like “cherry cordial chocolates” whatever that is, it sounds nasty but these are not nasty! You might like them. Okay. […]

Ask Max Monday: EAT ALL THE FANCY FEASTS!

Oh wise Max, I have a question. What are your favorite Fancy Feast flavors? My humans are starting to bring me Fancy Feast offerings instead of the free range artisanal crap they’ve been dragging in since my beloved Nutro Max Cat went away. I horked up half a can of some tuna and salmon garbage […]

Ask Max Monday: I’m Still Standing…Well, Laying Down, but Still…

First things first: I’m still here. I’m okay. I’m not great, but I’m about as good as a 19 year old dood with bad kidneys and a wonky thyroid can get. My weight is down again; at my highest I was 18 pounds, and now I’m around 9.5, which is a healthy weight for a […]

Ask Max Monday: A Word From the Woman

Usually I help Max answer questions on Sunday night, and we upload the Ask Max column before heading off to bed. This week we honestly did not feel like even checking email to see if there were any questions for him; while I sat in the living room, he was in the master bedroom closet, […]

Hi Max, Two years after (almost to the day) our dearest Spider crossed the rainbow bridge, she sent Gracie and me a new friend. It’s a boy, a middle-aged meezer dude! His origin story is as fuzzy as his toe bean sprouts and apparently he’s recovering from his years on the streets (after some help […]

Great answers, you are most certainly worth steak. Any advice for how to get a cat used to drinking out of a fountain instead of the sink? Hm. I’ve always preferred a fountain so it just kinda happened. If there’s room, maybe start with the fountain near the preferred sink, and when the cat tries […]

All right, doods, I hope you’re all doing well and your people aren’t driving you six kinds of nuts while they’re staying at home interrupting all your naps. I’ve had it pretty easy; the Woman has always worked from home and the only thing that really changed is that she can’t take breaks to go […]

Max, the only reason any cat would need a bath is if they’ve got something gross stuck to their fur, or they need flea shampoo. Any other reason is just wrong…right? I can’t think of any reason other than torture, and that’s just mean. I’m not even sure why people like baths for themselves. They […]

So nice of you to offer your books for free. Max. My human already has them all, I’ve read them on her tablet thing. I don’t like this pandemic thing. The human has to stay home now, so I have to snoopervise to make sure she actually does some work. It’s exhausting! The stabby place […]

Max,  The human has a blankie that is sometimes very warm. Like, if you could sit in the fireplace without setting your asterisk on fire warm.  But then sometimes, it’s just regular blanket temperature. I sit on it anyway, thinking it’s gonna be all warm, but then I realize it’s not and I go on […]
