Maxwell's Musings

Dood, you had us as "holidays"....

A Chanukah Conundrum

Maxwell: Dood, I wouldn't do that if I were you.
You're not going to get any more Chanukah gelt from Hanukkah Harry at that rate.

Faraday: Pfft. I already scored my bonito flakes and wand toys. Plus there are only three nights left. Alls we get now are things like socks and litter boxes. I'll just use yours.

Maxwell:  ... hard to argue with that logic....

Happy, happy holidays!

 However you celebrate, may today be a joyous and blessed experience.

~   Maxwell, Faraday, Allie (and us humans, too!)

Chestnuts roasting on the....

No, wait. That's just Faraday....

Cats, boxes, and expensive shipments

Allie: Ooooh hello, you lovely box. Did you bring me anything extra special from the online store today?

The Mom: I'm not sure it's entirely healthy to me so enamored of a cardboard box like that, girly.
Allie: Enamored? Of a box that brings me delicious food and lovely diamond collars?

The Mom: About that collar.... Your allowance didn't cover the difference, I'm afraid. 
Your account was overdrawn and the purchase denied.
Allie: Denied. DENIED?!?!

The Mom: Well, if you'd like to get a job to cover the monthly installments....
Allie: This girlcat doesn't do menial work, Mother.

Allie: I can see I'm going to have to take this over your head and speak to Father about it. 
I'm sure I'll have no trouble getting him to see reason.

Good luck with that, girlie-girl!

Brotherly love.

Monday's crazypants

Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie. A little decorum, first thing in the morning, pleez. 'Speciallies on a Monday an' stuffs.
Maxwell: Dood, when opportunity squeaks, you gotta grab it.

Faraday: Pfft. Everyone knows opportunity knocks, Maxie.
Maxwell: DOOOD. Mousie on a string, over here.

Faraday: *huff* Okay, FINES! Whatevers. Just do it quietly.


Poor Faraday....

A little chat

Allie: Well, hello again, round scratcher. It's been awhile.

Allie: Perhaps we should spend some quality time together.

Allie: You know....

Allie: get better acquainted.

Allie: Good talk. Let's do it again soon.

Nap, interrupted....

Priorities, we gots them.

Faraday: I'm telling you, Maxie, that Amazon truck does NOT have our noms on it.
Maxwell: Dood, you can't know that for sure.

Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie. I saw Mommy's last order. It had hair stuffs an' tool parts an' ... an' vitamins an' stuffs listed onna page. Not a single bonito flake anywheres.

Maxwell: So that ginormous box I see him carrying up to our front porch....

Faraday: Worthless.

Hey, Amazon delivery dood...consider yourself lucky Max is on this side of the glass....

Cat Conversations #512

Faraday: Hey, Maxie, why're we sitting here, staring out at a backyard we can't play in, again?
Maxwell: It's called "getting fresh air".

Faraday: An' why's this such a good idea again? Cuz all I wanna do is tear into that squirl who's sitting there laffing at us right now.

Maxwell: Well, Momma said—
Faraday: Pfft. Mommy also said going to the vets and getting our toofs cleaned was a good idea, and you know how that turned out.

Hey, it's not my fault you guys have so many cavities....

Cyber Glam

Allie: Excuse me...
I hope you don't mind, but I put a few things in your cart online for Cyber Monday.

The Mom: Allie! *cue choking sounds* That's a diamond collar with a 1.52-carat marquise-cut pendant, for— 
A hundred and fifty thousand dollars?!?

Allie: Is it too much, do you think? Is it? 
I don't want it to look gaudy....

You're right. It's too much. 
Let's stick with the option without the pendant attached.

The Mom: *faints*
You think we jest? Check this out....

Black Friday Fire Drill!

Maxwell: Dood, what are you doing?

Faraday: Everyone's talking about all the HOT Deals going on today, since it's Black Fridays, an' stuffs. I just like to be prepared. You know what happened the last time things got hot around here....

Please shop responsibly!  ;-)

Ready for Thanksgiving? Faraday is!

*big eyes* Is that ... turkey?  And gravy?

*reaches for plate*

Can you push the stuffing closer, pleez? I can't quite reach it from here.

*prepares to snag --- *

What do you mean, "you're not invited"?
B-b-but I washed my paws an' ... an' ... everything.

*cue lower lip quiver*

(Yeah, this is how he got the turkey. And the pumpkin pie.)


From our home to yours:
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving

Monday Morning Brrrrz

Faraday: Go 'wayz... I'm cold!

A Twisty (tie) Tale

Allie: What do you have there, Maxie?
Maxwell: Dunno, Allie, but I'm sure it's important science stuff, since papa dropped it.

Faraday: *scoffing noise* Seriouslies, Maxie? Just looks like a piece of white plastic to me.
Allie: Hm, let me take a closer look....

Allie: Looks like a zip tie to me.
Faraday: A zip tie?
Allie: I hear there are loads of uses for them. Like holding things together, sealing things securely shut.

Maxwell: Wait. You mean, like sealing our food bin from incursions by grey-and-white tuxedo cats?
I need to investigate this, stat!

Allie: *dirty look*  And I thought you were the nice brother....

Acoustic Feline

Maxwell: Turn up the Super Bass, papa. The rumblies feel gooooood....


Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Poor girlie....

Allie: What do you mean "it's not dinnertime yet..."?
Can't you see I'm starving?


Monday, November 11, 2019

Unwilling subject

Hey baby, come pose for Momma *cue shutter sounds*

Faraday: *sigh*  Seriouslies, Mommy, if you wanna take another photo of me, you know where I'll be....

... testing the airflow on the furnace vent.

(brrrrrz, is it cold where you are?)


Friday, November 8, 2019

Friday Delivery!

Allie: *sigh* oh for opposable thumbs....

November Complaints

Faraday: Seriouslies. Someone tell the warms to get back here. Stat!

Maxie, the civic-minded kitty

The paw's all primed to shake paws at the polls tomorrow!
For those in the U.S. — don't forget to vote — it's both a privilege and a responsibility of citizenship!


Friday, November 1, 2019

November already?

Maxwell: What's this I hear?

It's November already? Where has the year gone?

I'd best be about it, if I want to hit my annual nap quota. I think my game's been off this year due to the dearth of sun puddles....

We're closing in on nearly double the annual rainfall in our area. 
Has the year been wet where you live, too?

Wednesday Scritches

...they're the best!


Monday, October 28, 2019

Allergic to physics much?

Faraday: Seriously Maxie?

You're gonna try to inflict physics on me...

onna MONDAY? I PROTEST! go 'way so's I can suffer my Monday morning in peace.

(Dood, you're SO not a Monday kitty....)

This is Maxie's Brain...

Maxwell: What have we here? A little light reading?

Maxwell: Let's just see what pops is reading today....

Uhm-hmmm... *mutter*mutter*  Yes. Oh really....

*scoffing noise* Any cat could solve this problem. The connection between length and time?
Simple. The longer it takes for dinner to be served, the more slowly time passes.

It's all relative, really. Get it? Relativity?
Ahhh...I crack myself up....
