Maximus Friday

The Mommy gave me the blog today, although isn't really my blog anyway?  Everything else in this house is mine, I think the blog should be too.  (I'm still training the Mommy and Daddy that everything is mine, they aren't easily trainable.)  Sometimes Mommy plays with string (mine) and I try to help.  Often she uses sharp sticks with the string and I take them from her so she doesn't poke herself.  It's best when Mommy packs the string and sticks into a bag, then I can just grab the bag and run off.  My biggest problem is that Mommy can get under the bed where I hide things.  Then she takes back the things I'm protecting her from.  Mommy is also fun to snuggle with.  She'll let me sit in her lap a lot and if it's cold, she lets me climb in her jacket and wraps it around me.  Sometimes I just climb down the sleeve and sleep there if she's wearing one of Daddy's big jackets.  Daddy is proving to be more easy to teach than Mommy and I've found that if I jump on him, he'll carry me around on his shoulder.  If he does a good job, I give him a tail moustache as a reward.  The Daddy is easily amused.  He's also fun to purr at in the middle of the night.  He'll pet me back to sleep and I'll just purr and purr and purr at him.

I also have a boy who is very fun to play with.  He has lots of fun toys that fit in my mouth and I can carry them around.  We also play a game together.  The Mommy and Daddy think I should go to my bedroom when they leave the house (it's not bad, it's pretty big and I have a king size bed in there that I share with the Mommy and Daddy).  Sometimes the Mommy asks the Caleb boy to bring me downstairs to the bedroom.  That's when we play our game.  Caleb calls me and tries to catch me and I bounce away, just out of reach.  Then I sit down and wait until the Caleb gets close again and bounce away again.  We have lots of fun with that game.  I have other games I play with Logan dog.  He and I love to chase each other and sometimes I can circle around and sneak up behind him.  Then I bounce off of him and take off in another directions.  He loves to run, but he doesn't corner as well as I do.  One of my favorite things to do with the Logan is when Mommy or Daddy put him into a "stay", then I run up to him, puff up really big and hop sideways at him a couple of times.  Then I tear off at top speed and he HAS to chase me, I mean it's a moral imperative that a dog chase a cat after we say that to them (Mommy says I can't give an exact translation because this is a family blog).  Then the Logan gets in trouble.  I usually take a bath then and wait until he's forgotten he's supposed to be staying before starting it all over again.  I guess I'm pretty lucky to have such a fun family.  I love weekends when everyone is around all the time though.  I hope you have a good weekend!

Ah, Maximus .. you are doing so well in training your family. I am sure that in just a few months they will do everything your way with no fuss and bother. Keep up the good work on the training.
