National WHAT Day?

Allie: Honestly, Maxie, isn't it cheating to make Mother bring the toy to you?

(inarticulate mancat grunting)
Allie:  ... Maxie ... oh MAXIE ....

(more inarticulate grunting)

Allie: *sigh-h-h*
It must be a mancat thing.
Either that, or you're fully embracing National Crazy Day.
Honestly, Maxie, no practice needed for that ....

Maxwell: WAIT. Who're you calling crazy, huh?

Allie: *pointed look*  I rest my case.

Smart is Cool Day

Faraday: Whatcha doing, Maxie?
Maxwell: Calculating the spring constant for this toy. You know, F = -kx and stuff.

And maybe doing a little levitation.

Faraday: Are you going to be done soon?
Maxwell: Wasn't planning on it. Why?

Faraday: Beeeeee-CAUSE, Maxie. You're playing with MY TOY. An' I want it BACK.
Maxwell: Patience, grasshopper. Good science can't be rushed.

Faraday: *stalks away, muttering under breath*  That is so NOT cool, Maxie. SO not cool.

Thursday's Purrs: Lexy


"Hello out there! Can anyone help me with my classified ad submission? (no opposable thumbs and all, you know)

Or maybe I should just ask for one lap that would be made available to me - a lot of the time.

Thoughts? Ideas? The wording for ads like these is so critical, I think - don't you?"

"I may have been classified as a 'stray' when I first came here, but let me assure you - I know all about laps. You could even say I'm a bit of a lap connoisseur!

The folks around here say I'm quite the social cat. If you come near my kennel, I'll be right there, waiting to see if you are going to open the door. I'm exceedingly pettable, if I do say so myself, and I have incredibly soft fur. If you'll come over to visit, just take a seat so I can test drive your lap, please?

I don't ask for much in a forever home, just people who will love me -- and let me sit in their laps. (and no other kitties, please - I am kind of selfish of your time that way. *embarrassed look*)

And at 11 years young, I've left all that silly kitten-headed nonsense (like ricocheting off your forehead at 4 in the morning) behind me, too.

Winter's coming!  Wouldn't you like access to a gorgeous lap-warmer like myself?

Purrs and head-butts,

Lexy's been at KC Pet Project's Main Adoption Center for a long time. In fact, she's been there the longest of all the cats there, so it's time she finds her forever human, don't you think?
Come meet her today!

Practice Makes Perfect

Maxwell: Hmmm. If I'm going to be accused of pole dancing ...

Maxwell: ... then I suppose I'd better ...

Maxwell: ... begin rehearsing.

Maxwell: I want to be sure I have all the moves right.

Maybe I can earn a little spending money with my tips.

Faraday (off screen):  Waitaminit. TIPS? Maxie, we need to talk ....

'Toon Tuesdays Puns: A Crazy What?

Not a political reference. No, not at all.

Toon Tuesdays feature animal (and sometimes human) humor created by the peeps over at Shoebox Greetings (a tiny little division of Hallmark) - where our mom works, too!

Once more, with feeling.

Faraday: Maxie, you don't just stand there staring at it.

Faraday: That's not how you do it, Allie.

Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie! Ya need to pounce on it an' stuffs!

Faraday:  Like this.

And this.


Good thing today's Mulligan Day, cuz you both need do-overs.
Or remedial pounce training.
For realz.

Happy Mulligan Day! 
(how do YOU plan to celebrate?)

Happy Birthday, Allie!

Maxwell: Is that a gray hair I see, Allie?
Allie: Most likely, Maxie. I am a gray tuxie, after all. 
Maxwell: No, really. I think even your gray hairs are turning gray.
And is that a new wrinkle I'm seeing over here?

Allie: Enough with the gray hairs, Maxie.
Maxwell: Is your temper fraying a bit, Allie?
Maybe you're going through Meownopause.

(long pause)

Did you hear what I said? Allie?  ALLIE?
Holy cat, she's losing her hearing ....

Allie: *sigh* I can hear you just FINE, Maxie (although I wish I couldn't at times).
I was just counting to ten.

Maxie: Counting to -- oh NO! You're having cognitive function issues, too?
How many paws am I holding up Allie?


Allie: Wonder if I'd get a senior discount on Pest Control?
Maxwell: Pest Control? We have no bugs, Allie.
Are you seeing things now? I hear that's a sign of senility.
Have you had your geriatric screening yet?
Just trying to be there for you, Allie.
You know, being a senior cat now, and all.

Wishing Allie a Happy Birthday!

We're not exactly sure what day Allie was born but Wayside Waifs, her Alma Mater, estimates early October of 2007. So, happy birth-month, Little Princess!

And, uh, somemommy got it WRONG last year. She's only now turning 9.
To help keep her honest in the future - and to avoid any messy "birther" issues, we've decided to publish her "birth certificate" from PetPoint.

Faraday: Wow, Allie, you were actually skinny back then.

Allie: That's it. I'm never celebrating another birthday. EVER.
