Ask Max Monday: How To Make A Kajillion Dollars

Ask Max Monday: We’ll Take Toothy Death For $100, Alex…

Sound advice, as always, Max. What would kitties ever do without you? They’d have to Google a lot, which means they would get more fur stuck in the keys of the computer, which means people would be upset a lot more…I have to live to, like, 100 just to keep peace throughout 4,321,593 households.

Got Poop? Win a Littervention! (GIVEAWAY) #spons

But try as I might to train them otherwise, they seem to delight in bolting from the box like Olympic gymnasts landing their dismounts, hoping to win points for flair. And after Tripper digs for China, the laundry porch could be mistaken for a quarry. This results in […]
