Maximus Meets The Spinning Wheel
Max waited until I got it set up and then he came to check things out. First he watched it for a few minutes, from a distance. Then he stalked the drive wheel. Deciding that wasn't a good place to attack, he attacked my leg. Then he attacked my spinning stool's leg. Then he jumped three feet straight up in the air for no reason and followed that with a bath. Once he was clean he tried to attack my face, then the spinning stool's legs again, and then the oriface hook, which hangs off the Scotch tension knob. Next he attacked the fiber I was spinning, which he was able to pull out of my hands, break it free from the wheel and run across the room with it. He was so in shock that he'd gotten that far with it (so was I) that he stopped and I went and got it back, removing it carefully from his mouth and claws. Once I started spinning again, he started his attack circuit all over, but he didn't go for the fiber again. I'm not sure if having more spinning wheel time will help the novelty to wear off for Max and he'll chill out or if he'll just come up with new and more inventive ways to attack. On the other hand, I can still spin while being attacked. Good to know!
