Meet Max

Everyone, meet Max.  Max, this is everyone.


Max is the first (of many, most likely) furry friend to join my future family.  I adopted him Monday, but I thought I'd give him a couple days to settle in before letting him know that he has an audience of more than seven hundred.  His name is short for Maximus.  Ten points to the Hogwarts House of your choice if you guys know which movie that references.

So far he hasn't murdered any of my furniture, he recognizes that the litter box is his friend, and he's only brought on one fit of sneezes.  He even greets me at the door after a long day on campus.  So far things are looking great.


Well what do you think?  Is little Max the Cat reader approved?

  5. Sarah, no, not Penelope. It's a good guess though. I do love that movie. :)

  6. Awww...Max is adorable! The only movie I can think of is "Gladiator," but that may not necessarily be correct. Either way, it doesn't take away from Max's cuteness. :) I am definitely a cat person, so kittens are definitely my friend(s). I'm glad that he seems to be adjusting well--he probably is nice to have around for company!

  11. Max certainly appreciates the love. (He's going to be one spoiled kitty, I'm afraid.) ;)

  14. So why get a pet if you are moving out of the country? Are you planning to take him with you? If so you better get on the paperwork for that because taking an animal to another country will take between 3 and six months of paperwork and bloodwork to avoid a quaranteen.

    But he is cute.

  15. Most definitely approved here! He is ADORABLE!!!

  16. Trinity, yes the plan is to take him with me. I actually just started looking up information about what taking him to Germany will entail today. It might take ages, but so will MY moving, so I think it'll work out. ;) Also, even if it does delay things a little, it'll be worth it to have the company.

    Even after I move I'll be spending long hours at home alone. Having Max will be we a blessing.

  17. he IS adorable - he looks like he's got a very playful personality! :) (and Gladiator was my guess too)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, he does indeed have a playful personality. Lol. I'm not sure how long his toys will last before I have to find him new ones. ;)

  19. He is so cute. I love love love cats.

    Hey, he could be the official mascot of your blog!

    Wait, there's an idea...now my cat could be my official mascot...

    You're giving me ideas! lol

    Can we expect to see him in future posts?

  20. Sarita, yes, I'd definitely say that you'll be seeing more of Mr. Max. Lol.

  21. He's beautiful!! I love orange cats. Little boy cats are the best!! They are so crazy and playful.

  22. oh my gosh. he is such a stud! and he looks like my aramis! (:

  23. Robyn, I've always loved orange cats too, but this is the first one I've had. Lol. Every other time I came close to having an orange one something went wrong. One was given away before I could come to get it, another was a kitten of one of my female cats that I had to give up. (We already had two at the time and couldn't handle anymore.)

    Adele, aw, thanks. :) I actually did think of Aramis the first time I saw this little guy. ;)

  25. What a cutie! Love his fur color!

    My kittie is white with a black spot on her head and an all black tail and a cute little spot on her body that looks like a heart when she sits.

    I'm also allergic to cats lol! Darn.
