A Theory with Mancat Maxx.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my baby sister Viola, otherwise known around these parts as “The Squirt.” I mean, it’s hard not to think about her. She’s into EVERYTHING!

As I was saying, she get a lot of attention for all the trouble she gets into; I say trouble because if I climbed the curtains, I don’t think anyone would scoop me up to shower with kisses. I’m looking at you, mom.

So it stands to reason it’s her lack of a tail. No tail clearly equals extra attention. I thought I’d test this new theory.

Here I am, the new Maxx, sans tail. I’m waiting for my shower of kisses.


Still waiting.

Any minute now the kisses will begin.

I’m sure of it.

Hmmm, shot that theory all to pieces. Maybe going tail-less was too much of a shock. How about a short tail. Not my usual Maxx tail, but shorter. You know, cuter. Surely, kisses will be forthcoming.

Soon perhaps.

Today, even.

Mom! You’re wrecking my theory!*

*No Maxx went without kisses during the photographing and creation of this blog entry.

  1. It was worth a try, Maxx. We don’t blame you for trying. 🙂

  2. Where have you hidden your tail Maxx? We hope you haven’t lost it or have you given it to Viola to keep safe for you? Here’s hoping you got smothered in kisses.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. I uld love to give you kisses Mancatt Maxx.

  4. goodness maxx; open a kissing booth and ALL the girls will be in line, and I will be one of the first ♥♥♥♥

    dai$y =^..*=

  5. Oh No!How about kisses from my mummy instead,xxxxxxxx Speedy

  6. What no kisses? We send you some virtual ones. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. OOOOO mAXX…..XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and a big squishy X right on top of your sweet head!

  8. Maxx…cannot belief a gorgeous man-cat like you isn’t showered with kisses efurryday. Little Viola (Squirt) is getting so big. Hope she doesn’t grow out of the whimsical expression she always has on her face. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. Sorry, Maxx but if we could, we would be scooping Viola up and covering her in kisses too It must be that adorable nubby little tail!

    And Quint, the mom FINALLY framed your paintings and we’ll be posting about them soon. Can you forgive us for taking so long? We hope so!

  10. Hm. I always thought my human favored me because of my unique fluffy tail with the black stripe. If not the tail, then what is it? My general awesomeness? It’s a puzzle!

  11. Our Mom has the same habit with the tailess wonders! *kisses* to you Miss Viola.

  12. Nobody could say you didn’t try Maxx.

  13. You deserve many, many kisses! But it’s a Mom thing.. the lil ones always get the most attention.

  14. Maxx, seriouslies. You’re being deprived, we can TELL.

  15. Maxx, we hope you were showered with kisses AFTER the photo shoot.

  16. The head peep says she would have showered you with kisses, for sure, Maxx. Don’t mind the squirt. She’ll grow into a grownup cat before you know it, buddy.

  17. aww…Mommy says she’ll give you EXTRAS, Maxx!!

  18. Your little sister can climb curtains and get away with it? The last time I tried that, I pulled the brackets right out of the wall. I don’t remember getting kissies either, Maxx.

  19. She got kissed for climbin’ the curtains? MOUSES!

    Hmmm… Maybe your mum is goin’ with the “there IS such a thing as too many kisses” theory. Could be, you know. My brother Seville is certainly a believer of that.


  20. Maxx, our human is sending you a slew of virtual kisses. (And you’re lucky they’re only virtual, because, yuck, who wants to be smooched to pieces by a human???)

  21. Maxx, we kind of like your theory. Our humans would have TOTALLY showered you with kisses. We suspect your mom ended up doing so, too, after these pictures. 🙂

  22. Max my mom would be more than pleased to give you a shower of kisses..any time!

  23. Maxx, you look as though you get kissed a LOT. You’re super adorable, tail less or otherwise…we know your Mama would never resist! We are sending you extra kisses as we type. . . for good measure! 🙂
