HOWEVER... a word of warning to my feline friends... for kitties, most things outside the box are not good. My tip for the day is: if you are a kitty, stay inside the box and your humans will think you're a genius. For everyone else: Go For It!

The Great Noodles
Lindsey contemplating her answer
Lindsey: Not really. My interests are more in finding things to torment. I really like to drown lizards in my water dish… that’ more what I’m into, but I’ll share my opinion when necessary (usually when I’m hungry).
Max: Okay... I find that quite disturbing on so many levels....
Question: Let's see... This question's for both of you. Since you're brother and sister, do you have rivalries or do you get along all the time?
Lindsey: ALL the time, firstly, Noodles thinks he owns the humans and that he can sit on their laps at his leisure. Sure, I don’t sit on laps, I hate laps, but he doesn’t have to rub it in my face. I do get to sit with them now and then, but I set BETWEEN them where I have some room to get comfortable. If Noodles comes by, I bite his tail or swat it. I hate that everyone’s afraid to pet me and they just ADORE Noodles (if they knew the half of it I swear…), but I also hate when people pet me. I’m complicated
Noodles: Lindsey doesn’t bug me much. Sometimes I have to put her in her place with a good smother move. Or I’ll get her in some kind of upside down bear hug and man do her claws hurt! Most of the time I just chase her up on the counter and then go looking for the humans so they’ll lock her up in the bathroom for time out. No one’s allowed on the counters.
Max: Okay, let's let our audience get to know some of your likes and dislikes a little better...
Question: Favorite food?
Noodles: Kibble all the way! Other food is confusing! I’m also obsessed with anything in a crinkly bag… I MUST KNOW what’s in the bag. Sadly, it is VERY rarely kibble.
Question: Nap position?
Lindsey demonstrating napping position
Question: Napping spot?
Noodles: Behind the man human’s laptop (mmm heat), in a sunbeam, on the woman human’s pj’s, or the middle of the living room floor.
Lindsey: I like to stick to my spots till the carpet gets a little “gray” looking and then I move on… right now? Next to the scratching post. I have almost made a perfect “hair nest” there, so I’ll soon find a new place to soil with my awesomeness.
Question: Favorite books?
Noodles: Health magazine… I just LOVE the glue they use to bind the pages. I cannot get enough and would rub my face on that magazine ALL DAY LONG if I could get away with it.
Lindsey: Huh? You mean hobo blankets? I like to snooze under them, not read them.
Noodles: The man human is into some pretty mellow stuff… it pumps out of the speakers next to the laptop. So I’d say ambient techno… right? Is that right?
Noodles behind the laptop... his favorite spot to listen to tunes
Lindsey: I don’t care what music I hear so long as it isn’t whistling! I HATE the sound of whistling!
Question: Favorite TV star?
Noodles: What’s TV again? I like to watch the walls, the ceiling, and occasionally the back side of the couch.
Lindsey: I like independent films… so maybe Posey Parker… is that her name? That movie Dog Show was pretty funny.
Question: As our final question let's dig a little deeper. I know you two are pretty committed fellows with many interesting cattitudes. So, what is your mission in life?
Noodles: Be awesome and meet many wonderful women who will coo at me and scratch my ears endlessly. I’m a charmer.
Lindsey: Eat! Always EAT!!!! I Love me the food… I don’t care what it is I just want it now!
Max: On that note, I want to thank both of you for taking time for the interview.
Noodles: Welcome, Max. We're glad to do it, aren't we Lindsey?
Lindsey: Yeah, right.... chicken bones.... we were promised chicken bones, weren't we?
Max: ....anyhooooooo.... Thanks so much for the wonderful interview and we'll look forward to pieces when you write for MaxtheQuiltCat.com.
Thanks to all of you critters out there for tuning in to The Scoop.... Have a great day.

That's how airports are these days. No more, standing at the gate and savoring those last few laughs with a buddy or gazing into a sweet, fancy feline's eyes for a few extra minutes. Nope. If you're not traveling, you're not allowed anywhere near the plane.
I guess that's wise, but slowly we are losing all those old "hello" and "good-bye" traditions. Let's fight back and not let life become too "imcatal" (that's the feline version of "impersonal"). Let's keep it real. Start some new "hello" and "good-bye" traditions that don't involve airport security.
Have a great day. Birds fly.... maybe cats should just stay on the ground.

As I was searching for another term, I hit on Her Highness. It's not a sarcastic pseudonym nor one of disrespect. Instead, I realized that she thinks she's in charge around here. In honor of that misconception I thought she should have a fitting title. Her Highness seemed perfect since she's the "figure head" of the household.
Get it? She's the queen and I'm the prime minister. If you doubt that, just take a look at who is emptying the litter? Yes, enough said.
Her Highness is a wonderful queen. She's sees to everything, and I make the decision of what we will and won't do for the most part. It's a great arrangement and I hope some of you critters have one as good as mine.
Here's to Her Highness...!

It deserves 4 1/2 out of 5 paws on The Max Rating Scale. The website of the month for June 2009 is moderncat. You'll find it at http://www.moderncat.net
It has it all.... a great look. Daily additions to its blog. But the winning element is that it shows products that will make all our lives more elegant. And you gotta remember that I'm nothing if not elegant.
And... it has giveaways. Don't forget about those. I'm sending my human over to sign up for those today. The Asian-style raised feeder that was the May giveaway is a work of art. I could really chow down with that thing...
It has ideas of the coolest moderncat gear.... Check it out. Yes 4 1/2 paws... a well-deserved rating.
