The Adventures Of Maximus Spittimus

I can't seem to find any current pics of the garden, so I'll settle for this Christmas shot of the Cat Palace. Notice all the trees around. We've lots of trees in our garden

Maximus has been allowed out under supervision and has behaved himself admirably....until today.

Today he went and sat on the covered box used by Blacky for a few minutes and then, without warning, Bumble shot past him and straight up a tree.

Before I could move he slinked to the tree and went up, and up, and up, and up.

All I could see was this tiny bit of ginger occasionally doing a passable impression of a Sloth, hanging upside down Sloth like for minutes on end. He then swung himself onto the branch and lay there, seemingly precariously looking down on me.

"Maxi! Come down here this minute!"


This went on for mearly two hours, with Maximus occasionally completely vanishing into the depths of the tree.

He finally came down the trunk headfirst and hurtled into the house.

"Maximus! Do you promise never to do that again!"

I wonder whether "Meow" meant "Yes" or "No"?

He is now far too tired to post, so I've done it for him.

Daft as a brush is that cat!

Maximus will be back posting shortly - quite possibly from on high!

  1. he will do it again when you have no time, the weather is dreadful and you are wearing your good clothes. He is a cat.

  2. Maximus, it's cool you have discovered tree climbing adventures!...At least you were brave enough to come down once you got up there=we don't think 4D would have climbed up there after you!!...Happy weekend you wild boy!!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  7. Glad Max was smart enough to climb down and run safely into the house. Don't envy you the worry and stress, but at least he's safe inside, right???

    Ok, I'll try to stop with the Pollyanna act. Naughty Maximus for making the Two Legs worry!!!

    9 and Chani send their envious purrs though :D

  8. Please do not put your Two Legs through that again.

    Glad you are OK

  9. Maximus Spittimus!

    Action cat, daredevil, stuntcat! And centre of the universe too.

    No wonder you're tired! :-)

    I hope you have a lovely rest!

    Take care

  10. Just don't try to fly down from that perch!

  11. Hi Maximus...

    I wish I could .....

    My Mommy sad I'm a indoorcat !!

  12. Oy!
    what are we going to do about Maximus!!

  13. dear mr. dinners: please tell maximus that while we admires his climbin' ability (an' envies him a bit), we is furry afurraid fur his well being. if he fell outta that tree, would he go inta that black hole at the center? what would happen to the universe then? not to mention US??

  14. So no fire brigade with the long ladders to rescue Max - good deal!

  15. Well at least he came back into the house! He can't be too daft!

  16. Well, that is quite an adventure he had. We think he should be grounded for a few days so he learns that it is not good for him to be doing that!!

  17. I just came by because I missed Maximus : )

  18. Addictitus to Spittimus tales. Stay Safimus!!

  19. ALL the beautiful felines are indeed right!
