And now Lindsey...

Noodles isn't my only guest for the two weeks that their "food" humans are away. Lindsey is here as well. She's a little shy of the camera, so I only have this picture so far. Do not worry. I will take more.

I did get some great shots ... I thought ... but we'll never know, cuz it seems someone (HH) forgot to put the memory card in my camera... An easy enough mistake to make. HEE HEE (glad she did it.... not my memory that is in question here... shhhhhh... don't tell her I said that!)

Anyway, I owe you a couple more pictures of Lindsey. So watch for them.

Just wanted to tell you that we're having a grand time here. We watch the birds out the window and we nap and we nap and we nap.... and we nap. In fact, a nap might be a good idea right about now.

Have a great weekend pals..... Hope it's cool and sunny where you are.

Max on... hot

Good morning fellow felines and other critters:

I meant to tell you that I finally made it out of my bow tie and am now in my casual attire. So, today I'm celebrating just being me. That celebration includes many, many naps.

I guess lots of you are hot.... It's going to be 96 degrees today and that's not the feels-like temperature. So I guess it'll probably feel like 110 degrees.

Zowie.... I need to find a cool spot and stay put.

Have a great day and keep cool..... remember to drink lots of water and stay out of the sun.

Stuck in my Fancy Clothes

Good morning critter pals. I changed into my pawty clothes on Friday so I would be appropriately dressed for the Anipal Academy Awards. The Awards were wonderful, weren't they?

I was so excited to receive my writing award and have posted it here on my bloggie. But, more exciting is how wonderful the whole weekend was. So, concatulations to the committee for putting together such a wonderful event and to all the winners for their awards.

Today.... I have a little problem. Not a big one, but I'm bringing it out in the open so you won't think that I don't know the difference between pawty clothes and everyday clothes....

You see... Twitter is doing something funny today and it won't let me change out of my pawty clothes. So, if you see me in my pink tie, don't snicker. At least I'm not stuck in one of those slinky dresses like some of the kitties. Those are murder to nap in.

Have a great day and here's hoping I'll be able to take off my tie tomorrow.

Max on... cats

With their qualities of cleanliness, discretion, affection, patience, dignity, and courage, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?" - Fernand Mery Her Majesty the Cat

Woo hooo critter pals... is this quote true or what? Oh, I admit that we goof up occasionally and might not be as perfect as ol' Fernand proclaims, but having those traits is a good thing and we can certainly capitalize on them.

So as we face a new week here, let's all show the hooooman world all those qualities attributed to us. Have a great week

A Golfer's Tail is a Wonderful Tale

A Golfer's Tail: The Quest for the Double Slam
The lost manuscript of Roscoe Watkins, the greatest all-species golfer of them all

Foreword by Mioshi Murata
Illustrations by Barney Velarde
And Roscoe's human servant, John Watkins, contributed as well.

This book is the real deal. If you're a cat lover, you will enjoy this book. If you're an avid golfer, you will enjoy this book. If you're both, you will absolutely twirl your tail over this book.

A Golfer's Tail is the story of Roscoe Watkins, the greatest all-species golfer of them all. It chronicles, in delightful detail, Roscoe's quest to capture the double slam in 1998. Tournament-by-tournament, the details unfold of Roscoe's quest to win not only the four major tournaments on the regular feline golf tour but the tournaments on the senior feline golf tour as well.

In his own words, Roscoe describes his love of the game, the challenges he met, how helpful his trusty caddy and sister Maggie was throughout the quest, and the patience Roscoe chose to demonstrate despite being continuously tormented by his chief competitor, Nakamura, from Japan.

Roscoe imparts play-by-play commentary of the chief tournaments as well as many helpful hints and special tips to improve the golf skills of cats of all levels of golfing expertise. And he provides a handy glossary in the back of the book for those of you new to the game.

Readers will find the story in this book entertaining and informative, while enjoying the wonderful illustrations throughout the book, included to demonstrate the finer points. I am pleased to recommend this story of a cat on a quest and the superb example of sportsmanship he presents along the way.

Thank you Roscoe for writing this manuscript and thanks to John Watkins, Roscoe's human servant, for pursuing its publication.

I am happy to give it 4 out of 4 paws without reservation.

If you're interested in purchasing this book, you'll find it available on To learn more about the book, visit the website at

Max's Mystery Novel - Episode 9

If you are new to following Max's Mystery Novel... you'll find Episodes 1 thru 8 by clicking on the picutre like this one in the column to the right. All the episodes except this one are there.

So, during Episode 8 we left it that Max was dancing around on HH's desk to show her a key piece of evidence. Max was sure the murderer had stolen something out of the folder on that desk... So we pick the story up in Max's own words...

Thank goodness HH finally recognized that I wasn't dancing on that folder for my health. The folder was much thinner than it was before Fred was murdered. I was positive that the murderer had stolen something out of it.

"What is it Max?" HH asked. Then she moved me aside

"The pictures...? Where are the pictures Fred had with his manuscript?"

Now, we're cooking, I thought. HH was finally catching the drift of my message. She picked up a yellow sticky note that she had stuck to the pictures. It read... "Two copies. One for office and one for Stefanie."

"At least Stefanie has a set of those pictures and we can look at them to see what the murderer was after," HH said to me.

I followed her to Stefanie's desk. You have to understand that Stefanie had just started and wasn't completely moved in. She rented one of the office spaces in Writer's Creative Studio from HH and paid part in money and part by doing the photography and design work for HH.

I jumped up on Stefanie's desk to get a better look, but at a glance, I knew that the pictures weren't there. There wasn't a folder fat enough to contain the pictures. I thought she had put them in her briefcase to take home, but I didn't know how to convey that to HH.

HH pulled out her phone and called Stefanie's number. I watched her intently as she waited. Finally she said. "Oh... who's this?"

"Yes, I'm the owner of Writer's Creative.... Yes, yes it is.... Sheriff Johnson? Stefanie what? Okay. We'll be right there.

HH hung up the phone and turned to me. "Max.... Stefanie's been kidnapped. We have to go over there. You think you'll be good on a leash? You can find clues better than anyone."

I didn't wait to answer HH. I ran up the stairs to get my leash. Of course, I'd be good on a leash. Detective Max was ready for action....

Max on ... freedom

Happy 4th of July to You

Except for a time or two when HH put me in time out for minor infractions of the rules, I have never been without my freedom. Isn't that great!

As a writer and photographer, I especially appreciate being able to express myself freely according to my own creativity. Yay for July 4th.

I'll be watching the fireworks outside the porch window tonight and tomorrow night. How about you? Whatever you have planned, have a great weekend.

Max loves ya!
