We remember the Daddy's cat - Max


Today, the Momma was showing us some old pictures and we found one of our brother Max who went to the bridge over 5 years ago.

Maxy was a barn kitty.  He never once came in the house, Harry was the only one who knew him and only through the window.  the Momma brought him home, along with our brother Yuri, from her sisters farm.  Her lady cat had 9 kittens!  We had sheepies and chick-hens in our barn and there were always too many mice around, so Max and Yuri got their own door put in the barn and they lived there and ate tons of mousies.  They had a cool special food set up so the mousies couldn't get to it in the barn and they shared water with the chickens and sheep.  They were fat, happy boys!

Maxy was a daddy's boy.  This is him sitting with the daddy one day when the Momma and the Daddy were outside boiling some tree juice into something that they put on their big flat breakfast things.  It was a beautiful early March morning, and the Daddy and Max sat together tending the fire. It looks like it was a really happy day.

The Daddy was happy and a little sad that we found this picture.  He loved his Maxy, but he misses him very much.  The Daddy says he is really glad he has us guys to sit on his lap now (well, Harry won't but...) and we're glad he has a good lap for sitting on.   RIP brother Max.

  2. Your Max looks like he was a wonderful boy - in fact our Mum had a Max before we came to look after her!

  3. We too had an adorable Max who died of old age (20) also 5 years ago. He was such a big cat in silver grey, just beautiful and so huge like a tiger baby ! He is forever in our hearts too. After 6 months I took little Rosie, but of course she would never replace Max.

  6. It's a wonderful thing to have such a heartwarming memory of Max. I'm sure Max wouldn't want your Daddy still to be sad. The love they both have for each other is still alive.

  15. Great photo of your dad and Max. I liked hearing about Max and how much he was a daddie's boy. Thanks for your idea for a boat or train through Canada or Alaska. Sounds like this would be a fun trip if it wins the drawing. Will let everyone know where we are going once the drawing takes place.
