Someone asked if Maxx ever gets to come out of our bedroom, the room he calls his own even though he shares it with Ruby and Tessa (shhh, don’t tell him that), and we can say, Yes! Yes, he does get to come out. Once, maybe twice a day. He always goes into the Cat Den, eats some food because his own isn’t good enough, and usually sits up in the window to catch some sun for a little while.

Then, he’s done and goes back into his own room where his favorite thing is, our bed. Specifically, our bedposts. He LOVES these things, or we should say, he loves the right foot corner bedpost. It has a itsy-bitsy rougher finish on it, we think, and perfect for Maxx-sized head rubs.

Perks.

Let me tell you, being a roving tattler reporter has its challenges. The second you take a break from your duties, someone whips out a camera to capture your moment of rest. AND TELLS THE WORLD THIS IS ALL YOU DO!

*shakes head* This is simply not true. Why, just the other day, I was counting the bottles in this rack and thought to myself, “Yep. The same number as last week.” Then I wondered, “Wouldn’t counting the empty slots be more revealing?”

So many different angles to work!

But I won’t lie. The job has its perks too. Sometimes, when something good is going on, I, alone, need to be in the forbidden zone, otherwise known as the dining room table because I’m working. I’m gathering incriminating evidence investigating! Do you think I care that I’m where I’m not supposed to be?

Did you really need to ask?

In other news, Maxx and Tessa went in for their yearly v-e-t checkups yesterday and both came through with flying colors! In fact, big boy Maxx (sometimes known as Mr. Bubbles, the Drama Cat), who has been on a diet for over a year, has gone from sixteen pounds four ounces to fifteen pounds one ounce. Our v-e-t was very happy about that and we are too. Way to go, Mr. Bubbles!

Pia-Mobile?

If you look closely at Pia’s reflection in the window, you might see her face on the back of the SUV parked in the driveway across the street. Pia now thinks all SUVs ought to have her face plastered across the back. That’s all we need.
