I know people have dogs because a dog is man’s best friend – perceptive, tail wagging happy friends that seem to show up just when you need a friend to be with you.
When it comes to cats, you mostly hear other kinds of words that explain the mostly misunderstood creatures such as aloof, can take care of themselves and vermin hunters.
Although the descriptions of cats may apply to some cats, they don’t apply to mine…especially Mr. Max A Million. He has to be the coolest cat that I’ve ever met. Not only is he talkative but he’s also a good buddy.
You can be assured that if you visit, you will definitely meet Max and he will ask you to pet him. And, you will have no difficulties whatsoever understanding exactly what he wants.
You might even catch him taking naps in unusual places like on top of the printer, stretched out on the bed with his head on a pillow or in a box somewhere (easy for him to do now that we just moved and are not entirely unpacked yet).
I thought that I had experienced it all with Mr Rascal Million and that I wouldn’t ever be surprised with his antics after eleven and a quarter years having him as a companion. I was wrong.
Last night, while getting ready for bed, I received a little poke from a wet nose and looked over to see Max sitting right beside me near the bottom of the bed.
He didn’t want to be petted or told sweet ditties, he just wanted me to know that he was there beside me. It was a pleasant moment of shared companionship that touched my heart.
It isn’t only the dogs that do the touching moment type of stuff!
