Ask Max Monday: It’s Friday; I love you guys

Ask Max Monday: It’s Friday; I love you guys

It’s Friday, 13 November 2o2o This is the Woman. It might be easier to go read the post over at Max’s blog, but I’m sure you know just by the tone what this is. Max was doing well until he suddenly wasn’t. His pain level seemingly exploded overnight and today he could barely walk, couldn’t […]

Marty the Mt Washington Cat is Closer to Heaven

At 6,288 feet above sea level, Mount Washington in northern New Hampshire is known to countless travelers and bumper-sticker aficionados as the highest point in the Northeast and, according to the meteorologists who work there, “home of the world’s worst weather.” And for nearly nine decades, there has always been a cat in residence. The […]

Church Cat is With The Angels

Church Cat is With The Angels

Twelve years ago, a mangy tabby made her home in Southwark Cathedral, her first steps on the path to celebrity. During her extraordinary life she met the Queen, starred in a children’s book and generated gazillions of followers on her requisite social media acccounts. Doorkins Magnificat arrived at Southwark Cathedral in 2008, a hungry stray […]

Ask Max Monday: You Know…People

Ask Max Monday: You Know…People

When we had Sammy cremated, we didn’t know we’d get a box! Heart-shaped, but a box nonetheless. And both Angel and Chuck have oblong wooden boxes. Purrsonally, Max, I think you should have your Tardis, but I hope it’s not for awhile yet, dood. Here’s a question: Do you think that cats KNOW a cat-loving […]

Ask Max Monday: State of Me #4,391

Dude, Mrs H and I send once more our sincerest condolences. As to urns, I was wondering why they can’t do them like us? By that I mean in our likeness, size shape and colour. That would be so cool, though I can see some humans (like Mrs H) getting confused when they lose their […]

Scientists Discover 2,000-Year-Old Giant Cat

It’s a geoglyph recently discovered in Peru’s Nazca desert. After authorities began improving access to a lookout point called the Mirador Natural, a research […]

Ask Max Monday: We’re Okay

Ask Max Monday: We’re Okay

There were no questions this week—and it’s okay, I understand why—so I almost decided to just let it slide this week, but I thought it might be a good idea to say something anyway, to let y’all know we’re doing okay here. We still feel blindsided and we miss Buddah with a ferocity I never […]

Move Over, Spot and Isis. There’s a New Cat in The Star Trek Universe.

Move Over, Spot and Isis. There’s a New Cat in The Star Trek Universe.

I enjoyed the 3rd season premiere of Star Trek Discovery, even more so when I saw a new cast member, a Maine Coon named Grudge. Grudge is one in a long line of Trek cats, going back to the original series. In 2268, the USS Enterprise, on a mission in the 20th century, encountered Gary […]

Ask Max Monday: The Pest Was The Best

Ask Max Monday: The Pest Was The Best

This is not what I wanted to write this week. I wanted to answer questions, I wanted to find some funny, I wanted to tell everyone that Buddah was hanging in there and doing well. I wanted so many things, but not this. He just didn’t get any better. We had some ups and downs […]

NO BUTT IN FACE!!!!

NO BUTT IN FACE!!!!

That was a refrain Tripper the Psycho Stray Cat often heard from me. Given all the crispy bits embellishing his nether regions, I had to insist on a face-to-face relationship. He was quick to comply…I always suspected there was a little human inside of him, because he always demonstrated that he understood every single word […]

Ask Max Monday: Buddah Mojo

Ask Max Monday: Buddah Mojo

If you read my blog or Facebook page, you already know this, but it’s why there was no Ask Max last week and why there really isn’t this week. It’s been a hard week at Casa Max, and we feel totally blindsided by this. I’m okay, let’s get that out of the way first. But […]

Ask Max Monday: EAT ALL THE THINGS…but maybe not all at once.

Hello Max, I’m glad you’re feeling better. The ear stuff is so much easier to deal with than pills, isn’t it? As long as you get the required bribe, that is. I have a question, oh wise one. My human occasionally gives me tuna and salmon food, and it is SOOO GOOD! I eat almost […]

13 Cats Honor RBG

13 Cats Honor RBG

My weekend was ruined by the passing of feminist and legal icon, the notorious RBG. I won’t wax poetic about her truly transcendent awesomeness right now because you can get that via any ol’ news outlet. What you may not know is that cats across the land are celebrating her life and her legacy. You […]

Ask Max Monday: Shameless Self Promotion…

…and whatever else crosses my mind tonight. Yes, I realize there was no column last week and I fully intended to post something so everyone would know I was all right, but then the Woman started playing Enterprise on the TV and I got all wrapped up in that, and then there was food, and […]

Hot hunk Dennis Quaid has a new furry friend — a sleek house panther. His name? Dennis Quaid. The tale of two Dennises began when the actor heard from a local news report that a black rescue cat, also named Dennis Quaid, was resident in an animal shelter in Virginia and in need of a […]

Need Help, Kittehs! My Translator is Broken!

Fans of Star Trek Discovery were immediate fans of cat-loving comic Tig Notaro. She has a verrrrry dry wit and though initially her character was found on an alien planet (without a cat) and it was a guest spot planned for an episode or two, Tig scored a full-time role on the show. (She and […]

Ask Max Monday: Watch ALL The Things!

Max, we love to see that you are keeping on keeping on! I have a question: Sweetie sometimes sleeps on an old bedsheet, that bunched up inside a crate. I want to rearrange that sheet, since I’m sure it’s not as comfortable as it could be, but I don’t want to fuss enough that she […]
