Mancat Monday – The Playboys.

Every so often, or at least once a day (whichever comes first), Quint sneaks into Maxx’s room to exercise his kitten energy and antagonize tease “play” with his older brother. We all know how much Maxx likes to “play,” which would be with about the same amount of enthusiasm he’d have mowing the lawn. With a push mower.

The fun always begins the same. Unsuspecting Maxx, lying on the bench at the end of the bed footboard on his favorite ivory mattelasse, is suddenly presented with a paw and a pink nose peeking from the gap. Everything would be just swell if it ended there…but it never does.

A few more pokes of paw and nose, Quint’s determined to rile up his brother…

…just enough to get a response. In this case, Maxx pokes back with a marshmallow paw and without the usual growl, whap and flashing teeth. Whew! Quint, we really thought you had him going there for a second!
