Once upon a time, when Maxx was very young, he was unsure of himself and much of his surroundings.

“What’s this strange place and all these strange things?” he’d ask himself every day, having been rescued from living outside with flowers, nature and all sorts of scary things and expected to become an indoor-only boy with indoor-only rules.

“I don’t know if I like this or not,” he’d grumble and glare each time the walls were made another color, rugs were taken up or shifted or some trinkets were arranged, and then rearranged just so.

“Everything just sits, unless the people are fussing. Nothing moves. There’s nothing to attack. This isn’t natural at all!”

And so began Maxx’s obsession with decor, object placement and dislike for bronze bunnies. We accept the blame completely.

  1. Hello Maxx, what a cute portrait my friend. And I like a lot the bronze bunny, it’s cute!
    I wish you a lovely weekend, take long naps and we can dream that we are playing together!

  2. AWWWW……

  3. that is the most charming story ever 🙂

  4. Maxx: I completely understand! It looks like this bunny is making fun of you!

  5. Mes agrees whole heartedly, wxcept me dislikes Inukshuks.
    Yeah for grass, Boo for carpet (except on cat trees)

  6. Having lived outdoors for a while, I agree! Especially the lizards and roaches! But I sure don’t miss the fights. 🙂

    Your pal, Boomer

  7. I concur Maxx as I too have a great dislike of anything being out of place and what’s with the humans and their like of plastic or dried flowers … don’t they have noses to smell the roses or taste buds to chew on nommy cat grass. Adore your picture! xxx’s

  8. Inside is safest place in world for us kittehs unless we are in a Catio or on a harness and leash or learn very young to stick close to guardians when we are out with them. Not having pussy wounds or torn ears or broken legs from cars is a very good thing. Keep safe Maxx. Sorry I have been absent for so long. Paw pats, Savannah

  9. We can certainly understand that, Maxx. Bronze bunnies aren’t much fun — they don’t like to play, and don’t even do anything when you give them a nice whap or two.

    But we sure are glad you are inside, where it’s safe and you are loved. 🙂

  10. Oh Maxx we feel you pain. Go scratch bronze bunny. We would. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Heya Maxx; humans have such poor taste; good thing they make up for it (barely) with stinky goodness and safety.

  13. Clearly a bad case of FANG SHUI.

  14. I think that bronze bunny needs a whapping!

  15. That bronze bunny looks very smug. He deserves a good whap.

  16. The secret Maxx is to attack the humans’ ankles when they walk by. They love that and it keeps your hunting skills sharp and well as your teeth and claws.

  17. Awww, Maxx, the bunny isn’t too bad, but if he was a little bigger, he would be easier to hide behind. He’s just not terribly useful. We understand that. Maybe your people could turn him into a treat dispenser or something. THAT would be useful.

  18. Yeah, adjusting to life with humans is a big ordeal !!!
    We tolerate it because they feed us 😉
    The scritches are pretty good too , heehee

  19. Yeah, the no pounce factor. We love things we can pounce on.

  20. we cats should have a say in the decor. Our people should be lucky we aren’t killing them and destroying their stuff. Baggy and Nin

  21. Acho que o Maxx estava com ciúmes hehe.

  22. Awwww lovely Maxx!! You are doing a fine job watching these very suspicious looking bunnies! Yay! take care
