Feline Friday=^..^=Cats I kitty-sit & Thank you all

I'm featuring Mr. Max today. He is a great cat....a man's kind of cat. He's tough on the outside but a mush-ball inside. He's an indoor-outdoor guy but he stays around home and has a gorgeous lot behind his house to roam around and satisfy his hunting needs. He was a stray and he has never been happy staying indoors too long.
Max always wants his massage as soon as I see him. Then he eats and wants out!
I had a long talk with him and he promised he wouldn't hunt birds or squirrels or chippies. He says he'll just nab the bugs. Mind you, he's a sweet 'ol guy and is bound to tell you just what you want to hear.
I make sure he is really full before he is off on his next adventure.
 "Just bugs Max....I mean it" I have yet to see any of his 'trophies' and his owners figure he is a lazy guy and just likes to snooze in the garden. Let's hope.
Here's the path he takes to enter his jungle.

When he hears me arrive he comes zooming down the path to greet me and then falls over on the ground.
We have our visit together and he has a bowl of his favorite goop 
and then...
 He wants out again.
Oh, he's a little mischief maker if he doesn't get his way. But, he loves his bed at night and stays in so the boogie man won't get him.

That's Max and he's won me over.

Thank you to all my blogging friends who left such nice messages regarding Ginny's passing. You are all so sweet and I appreciate that you took the time to leave me such kind words. Ginny had a good life and she made my life better and it was with a peaceful but broken heart that I said good-bye to her. I stayed with her and with my vet's calm & caring hand she had a peaceful transition. On Sunday, we will take her to our property and she will be laid to rest there next to Maggie.  
Someday soon I will plant a garden there.

hugs, Deb 


  1. A home without a cat- and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat- may be a perfect home. I love cats because I love my home and after a while they become its visible soul.

  2. Max is very cool! He reminds me of my Mom's cat Sam who is also indoor/outdoor but comes in at night. I always enjoy seeing him when I visit my Mom. I'm glad Ginny will be laid to rest next to Maggie. A garden will be wonderful when you get it done. hugs to you Deb.

  3. Love his coloring..and personality. Cats are so amazing, each, such an individual. Good to hear about Ginny. :D
