Ask Max Monday: Of Mice and Breath and FOOD

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?

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

He Played the Violin for Shelter Cats on His Lunch Hour…Until He Was Murdered

OK, I know what you’re thinking…cats hate violin music–cat gut strings and all. But when Elijah McClain serenaded them with music, these shelter cats not only loved the music but looked forward to these musical interludes. They’ll no longer get them because McClain was murdered by police. McClain was a sweet law-abiding massage therapist who […]

Homer’s Magic Pixie Dust

Homer’s Magic Pixie Dust

This is National Pet Appreciation Week, or so Alexa told me. These days, the pet I appreciate most is Homer. So today I’ll subject you to a tail tale I’d previously written describing Homer’s gotcha story: Homer is black and nobody wanted him. Not even me. A few years ago, I adopted Reno, a flame-point […]

Ask Max Monday: 19

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!
