Hi Everybuddy... Max here... Welcome to Day Two of our 1st Annual New Year's Eve Party.  If you didn't come by yesterday, here's a little of what went on FIRST DAY OF 1ST ANNUAL NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY. But before you go over there.... Have a look around over here....

Thanks for coming. We've had such a great year, we just wanted to throw a little party to celebrate. Most of you know that HH adopted Bugsy and Knuckles this year. It's been a trip..... They have certainly brought new life to this household. And now even at a little over one, they are still acting like kittens.

Well.... I'm letting the boys be in charge of the party, so have fun...

Happy New Year and remember.. Max loves ya!!!




Knuckles here.... Yay!!!! We're so glad you stopped by.  There's all sorts of stuff going on, so just help yourself to everything.... Grab a balloon or noisemaker if'n you want and get some food too... ENJOY!!!!!







.... there's some toooona left from yesterday, but today HH got us some SHRIMP!




... and Bugsy and I are still up for a Turbo Track Challenge...


... and that famous DJ, The Great Noodles, is here to  manage the music...



and

Bugsy is in charge of the prizes.... A party isn't fun without a chance to win a little something. Well this year we have little somethings  and a BIG something for ya.... Read about it below and follow the instructions...





For everybuddy... near and far... HH has agreed to give away three of her books about Max.  Some of you already have it, so if you win and you already have it, HH will send you a paperback book about another cat. Just leave a comment today or yesterday to have a chance to win...

Now, HH gives away her book all the time and that's a nice prize and all, but that's not the grand prize.  

The GRAND PRIZE is  .........

..............

do I have your attention?.....

...the Grand Prize is $50.00 to buy whatever you want 




If you don't know about Mr. Chewy, here's the rundown.  Mr. Chewy lives at an on-line store that sells over 70 brands of pet food and supplies (for dogs and for cats). 

The folks at Mr. Chewy contacted Max and asked him if he wanted $50.00 of pet food and supplies.  Instead of buying for Knuckles and me... he decided to give away the promo code for the $50.00 worth of great stuff .  

So, one lucky winner will receive the promo code.  Now Mr. Chewy doesn't ship out of the US of A so this is only for those of you in this country.... sorry about that. For those of you in the US....

Toona Tuesday


Knuckles here to tell you that it's the last Toooona of the Year....   What, Bugsy?... Oh... I mean, it's the last Tuesday of the year. That means that we should have an extra helping of Tooooona today, right...?

In any case... I hope you have a great day and I have two things to tell you.


1.  It's Tuesday so I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that it's a fine day to sponsor a cat at the Humane Society of South Brevard or at your local Humane Society.

and

2.  We're planning a little New Year's Even party... come on by if you have a chance. It'll start on Friday... yep you heard me right, that's New Year's Eve's Eve.... More about that later.

Flat Max visits Robert

Yesterday was a big day.  Early in the morning, the boys helped HH wrap up the Christmas present for Robert.   They really wanted to go with her to visit him, but they weren't allowed, so they sent Flat Max instead.


Here Flat Max is in the trunk. He was supervising HH loading the food and paper towels to take to the Humane Society of South Brevard.  They always need all sorts of practical things, so feel free to drop some things off when you can.


Flat Max had a great visit with Robert... Here are some pictures.




Too soon we had to say good-bye to Robert, but we'll be back...
Thanks to all the wonderful people who take care of him and the other kitties.  What a great job you do!!

It's Christmas, please pass the word that during the holidays and all year round, it's a great thing to support your local Human Society...

Bugsy on Tuna Tuesday

Bugsy here.... It's my day to blog and Max is letting me have the extreme honor of telling you that it's TOONA TUESDAY, EVERYBUDDY...

Wha??????   I'm not supposed to yell...?   Oh, sorry. I just got excited.... Anyway, hope you have a great Toona Tuesday.

And I get to tell you the big news.  HH is going out to visit Robert** on Thursday at the Humane Society of South Brevard.  We're so excited and are going to send him some presents for Christmas.  

Knuckles and I are trying to talk HH into taking us with her, cuz we want to meet Robert too, but HH said that we might create havoc (whatever that is) if we were to go there. So, we will have to enjoy the pictures that HH takes.... We'll be reporting back to you on the weekend.

** For those of you who don't know who Robert is ... he's the kitty at the Humane Society of South Brevard that Knuckles and I are sponsoring.  They have a wonderful sponsoring program out there and anyone can sponsor a cat... you don't have to live in Florida to be a sponsor. If you want more information about it, CLICK HERE.

That's it for today....Hope you all have a great day.  Toona... Toona... Toona....  Doing the happy Toona dance... TA-DA!!!

Max on... Fame



Good Morning Pals....

So, last week I showed you the new counter lights.... The boys were thrilled that they each had one... So what happened yesterday when HH tried to take her first pictures of the boys under the "Spotlights of Fame?"

You guessed it.  They both wanted the same spotlight.  After a bit of tussling, HH was able to get this picture of them sharing one spotlight.  

Hee, Hee... those boys crack me up.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday, everybuddy.... It's Christmas Week!!!

Max

One more week until Christmas... are you ready?

Not the right holiday, Bunny... This is Christmas.


This year.... HH says we don't have much to do to get ready for Christmas.  She already put the wreath on the door and we have been opening Christmas cards like crazy. It seems that the boys and I are way ahead of HH.  We have received wonderful Christmas cards at a rate of about 5 times as many as HH.... Don't mention that to her however. She's a little sensitive about it.  hee hee...

We're keeping the preparations simple this year.  How about you?  Do you and your beans have lots left to do to get ready?  Hope you have moved on to party time by now. Have a great weekend whatever you do.....

Max on...The Boys and Luggage...


I told HH she should have taken some pictures yesterday, but she was too much in a hurry to do it.

Here's the story.... She had some business up in Jacksonville yesterday and thought she might not get done in time to come home last night. So she packed a bag and took her computer, etc. with her.

Well, she was surpirsed that the boys.... who've never had the experience of her going on a trip... acted like I used to act back when she would get the suitcases out (I knew what that meant).

Anyhooooo, the boys draped themselves every which way over the overnight bag and sat on her piles of things to take with her. When she started to leave, they were both stretched out on the floor in front of the door as if to say, "No.... don't leave us!!!"

Well, as it turned out, she didn't have to say overnight. The boys greeted her enthusiastically when she returned and HH thought she overheard Bugsy say to Knuckles, "See, I told you she'd come back!"

Bugsy, you were right.  Maybe that exercise yesterday will keep you boys from getting so freaky over suitcases the way I was.

Hope you all have great plans for the weekend...

Remember... Max loves ya!

We just heard about our dear friend Admiral... We will miss your sweet face... If you want to leave Carole some purrs.... click here

Thankful for Kitchen Thursday....

It's Knuckles here.  I get to blog today.

The kitchen is done... It looks great, but HH didn't give me any pictures to post, so I'll have to post some later.  We all love the new ceiling. And Bugsy and I are thinking of putting on some skits under those wonderful spotlights Joe put over our counter.  It was nice of him to put in one spotlight for each of us.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.... We're thankful for the look of the new kitchen that's for sure, and we're thankful for all of you.

Joe is back... the remodeling resumes...



 
How do you work this thing?. It doesn't have the same feel as last time.

So, our pal Joe is back. He's redoing the ceiling and the lighting in the kitchen. I must say, we didn't witness much of his work first hand. We were shut in the office all day.... Oh no.... we are very behind in our snoopervision. That's for sure. 

Here's a picture of Knuckles on top of the refrigerator with the old ceiling... See the lights are right above his head...

And now.... *drum roll*.... that plastic ceiling stuff over the long tube lights is all gone and here's Knuckles demonstrating how much more headroom he has  when he sits on top of the refrigerator.  See, he doesn't have to duck his head.  His ears even go above the line where the old ceiling used to be.  It's great and open and airy and wonderful so far.


Obviously, it isn't finished and painted yet, but it is coming along and we give Joe very high marks for his first day of working on it.  

Below is a picture of what it looks like so far.  Joe put in a couple of inset lights over the bar.  Ah..... looks great... Today he'll put in the overhead light and do some surface work and maybe paint.  We'll let you know.  


The kitchen... Day One
Happy Tuna Tuesday everybuddy...

Don't forget that you can sponsor a cat without having to physically take it home. At our humane society, you just pledge $5.00 per month and you will be providing for the care of a pet who is unadoptable.

If you're in the area, the Humane Society of South Brevard is located at 2600 Otter Creek Lane in Melbourne Florida... it's just north of the Pineda Causeway off US 1... or go to their website to find out information on how you can help.

Max on ... Thankful Thursday: couches

I don't know if you've heard, but Mr. Pip is having a bit of trouble over at his place concerning his couch. It seems that his beans have relegated his couch to the basement. Therefore, he has instituted, Operation Occupy Couch. As a sign of solidarity, we are posting pictures on our couches (yes, we are lucky to have two couches over here, and we are very thankful for them). So to let Pip know that we're with him, here are pictures of us on our couches. We're with you Pip... And we'll sacrifice and continue to nap on our couches until your beans return your couch...

Bugsy forcing himself to sleep on the beige couch...

Bugsy trying out the floral couch

Knuckles in his only couch position. On the top of the floral one.

Knuckles pretending to sleep in support of Pip
We just have one more thing to say.  We are thankful for our couches and we want to reach out to Pip's beans and encourage them to...

return Pip's couch now...

Happy Tuna Tuesday Everybuddy


 Here I am in my Santa's Helper outfit again.  It never ceases to crack HH up when she puts a little costume on one of my pictures.  I don't mind though.  It's Tuesday and that's the day I tell you a little about how you can help other kitties....

 Don't forget that you can sponsor a cat without having to physically take it home. At our humane society, you just pledge $5.00 per month and you will be providing for the care of a pet who is unadoptable.

If you're in the area, the Humane Society of South Brevard is located at 2600 Otter Creek Lane in Melbourne Florida... it's just north of the Pineda Causeway off US 1... or go to their website to find out information on how you can help. 

And the other reason I like Tuesday is...... wait for it...... yes, It's Tuna Tuesday.  Enjoy Everybuddy.

Max on ... decorating for Christmas


This is one of my old Christmas cards. I thought I'd haul it out for today's post. Kinda festive, doncha think?

It's time to decorate for Christmas, but we're a little stumped over here.  The boys are all for the tree idea, but HH doesn't think it'll last more than a minute and a half. She just knows they'll be climbing all over it and playing hockey with the ornaments. So, for now, we're taking old ornament pictures and putting them around the condo.  Yes, it'll look tacky, but at least there won't be broken bulbs everywhere.  HEE HEE... The creativity of these boys leaves me breathless some times.


Do you have a tree?  If so..... what are the consequences..? I mean, do you just look at it in awwwwwwe or do you dismantle it? Somehow, I think Knuckles and Bugsy are the dismantling type ... What do you think?

Have a great day...

Max on.... Finding Easy Like Sunday with his Night-Vision Goggles


So I was doing a little snooping around in the weeee hours with my night-vision goggles and look what I found... the boys getting their easy on.... Looks like we'll have a relaxed day.

By the way, thanks for all the suggestions from everybuddy on the name for the mouse. The most people mentioned Checkers... so that's his name.  He likes it too.

Have a great easy.... And, let's all send some cheer and purrs to Ginger Jasper... Get better quick, pal.

pawhugs, Max
