chillas and I had been talking about adopting a new cat for awhile. Well, Saturday we took the BeanSprout to PetsMart, just for a looksee. We came across this guy. Meet Max! chillas fell in love immediatly. [Wink] So we decided to bring him home. And he already fits right in with our goofy little family. He and Twitch are already playing with each other. Smokey, however, hisses at him, but he gives it right back to her. I think they'll all be alright in the end.

He was adopted from one of the local no kill shelters. He had been rescued from a kill shelter at about 6 weeks old, and was put into a foster home. He's not 5 months old, and has the same birthday as our other cats! It must be ment to be. [Smile]

I did suggest calling him Adolf, but Lizzy wasn't going for it. [Big Grin]

You can just tell people you named him after Harpo Marx, his birth name was Adolph. [Wink]

Cute kitty! Congrats to everyone!

The second pic I took this morning with my camera phone.

Max was following me around as I was getting ready for work. I left the bathroom with him sitting on the toilet seat, where he's been intently studying me brush my teeth. Came back a minute later to find him curled up in the sink like that, looking at me as if to say, "what?"

What is it with cats and sinks? [Smile]

As Lizzy mentioned, he and Twitch are already playing. At some point last night I woke up to Twitch caterwalling about something. I told him to be quiet and go play with his brother. He got quiet and a minute later I heard two sets of paws thundering back and forth between the living room and the bedroom.

Silly kittys!

Cats like sinks because they are sink-shaped - especially the back half.

Max also has a fascination with the guinea pig.

Just for the heck of it, I submitted his picture to the Kitler site and to catsinsinks.com. We'll see if anyone picks him.

I wish I could have pets right now; guess I'll just have to keep getting my pet fix virtually. Thanks for the pics!

Sure, we can do that! A new kitty is always a welcome addition to the house. How many do you have already? Cats are like potato chips...there's always room for one more. [Wink]

Well obviously you need to keep things an even number, so of course you need a fourth cat! Tell your husband the snopes people said so. [Wink]

You don't become a crazy cat lady until your felines number twenty-two. You also have to live alone (meaning no other humans).

Twenty-two? That is the best news ever!! That means I can get almost 20 more... You can never have too many kitties. Never.

Lizzy and I have had discussions about crazy cat people. Is living alone really a requirement? Isn't it possible for two people to become a crazy cat couple?

Because if that's allowed, then that's what we're planning.

Max got kicked out the bedroom last night. He's taken to attacking feet under the covers, which is in itself not that unusual. The probelm is he's using his claws, and the duvet was handmade by my sister. *sigh* [Smile]

My neighbor once brought their pet rats and their pet guinea pigs over for us to pet-sit. The cats didn't even look up when they brought the rats in, but they were very, very interested in the guinea pigs. A little too interested for my comfort, frankly -- I was glad we could put the rats and pigs in the spare room and shut the door.

My cat liked the guinea pig too, but more in a motherly way. She would lick his fur like he was a kitten getting a bath from mama. Of course, this made him nervous, which caused massive shedding, so she would get massive amounts of fur with every lick, with the requisite face-making and attempts to get the fur off her tongue. It was quite comical.

Max is a cutie!

Oh, that's a relief. There are only 7 cats here, and I'm not always alone with them. [Smile]

Max is quite a cutie too.
