Before There Was Maximus

Before????? Before meimuss???? There was a before MEEEE?????

I am shockedimuss to the core of my whiskers. I am. I am.

DJ told me there was a before me time. I always believed DJ but thought he was jokimussing me!

Now I has seen proofimuss I is shockedimuss. I is also proudimuss that I can continue the line of great cats and say that they are greatimuss, but I is bestimuss.

Two Legs says he will scan piccies of older cats long gone for me to see. Some, he says are lost forever when his computer crashed and he hadn't put them on a disk...uh? What is he on about?

He says piccies Hissing Sid and Tiddler and Tara and Mouse.....Mouse??? There was a cat called Mouse???....are lost. He better not lose my pics. I is Maximus Spittimus and my pics are sacred!!!

This is 'Holly'. She was a Christmas kitten. She was rescued from kids kicking her around in the street and her brainimuss was damaged. Two Legs say she was always 6 months old in her head - the Vetimuss said so - but she was Man Two Legs baby and he snuggled her and she was a happy kitty. I wish I had met her...

This is L to R, Hissing Sid, Tiddler, my DJ and my Scampi. Hissing Sid and Tiddler went to Great Cat before I was here - I am still shockedimuss that there was a 'before I was here'. Hissing Sid 'hissed' at all Two Legs except man Two Legs - even Lady Two Legs and Little Two Legs was hissed at. I think I would have liked Hissing Sid. Tiddler was always wild DJ had told me. Nobody could touch her - except once when she was poorly and she sat on Lady Two Legs lap. Apart from that one time she would scratch and bite any Two Legs who tried to touch her - I missed so much fun before I was here!!!

My DJ is gone now but my Scampi is still here. He is 20 years old now. He will be as old as DJ was next year.

This is Princess Puffball. DJ said she was found wandering the streets and was blind and deaf. Two Legs found she could hear if the sound was high pitched enough. The Two Legs took her in and she spent many happy years walking into things and getting cuddledimuss.

I am shockedimuss that there was 'before me' but I likes the before me cats. They is coolimuss.

Now don't lose my picciemusses Two Legs!!!!!!

The Two Legs first ever cats 27 years ago....27???????....were Duke and Duchess. DJ was named after the first ever cat - Duke. Lady Two Legs called him that after a Two Legs called John Wayne, who she liked said DJ. The Duke was Boss Cat. I will be Boss Cat one day and think of Duke. I will always think of my DJ.

Goodnight DJ. You will be happy with Great Cat. I know this because.........

I is MAXIMUS SPITTIMUS and I has spokens.


  1. We are also shocked that there was a before-Maximus time. We also have a before-us kitty named Q. Mom said he was a wonderful kitty. Sounds like the before-Maximus kitties were wonderful too.

    Hail from
    9 and Chani

  2. Well at least you are a super popular kitty now, you are lucky to have owners who love cats so much!!!

  3. Oh Hail great and wonderful Maximus Spittimus!! The days before you-imuss should not have existed but your centurions are glad they did cos we are honoured to meet the Before Maximus kitties of Two Legs!!!

    We cry for Holly and curse those evil kids who did this to her. We hail Two legs for saving her! We wave our banner at adorable Princess Puffball and are so glad she spent her happy life with your Two Legs!

    And we wail for Hissing Sid and Tiddler and now venerable and wise DJ who has gone to join them.

    We are leaping with joy that Scampi is still with you though!

    We think the calendar should now start at Year M.S. (Maximus Spittimus)!

    Take care

  4. Sounds to me like all those who went before you were lovely kitties and this shows how much they were all loved. You also are now the one and are in a loving home. It shows.. Hugs GJ xx

  5. Maximuss, you are an excellent Cat to follow in the pawprints of such wonderfull, illustrious Cats. We are simply puffed with pride to know you.
    And remember, IF there was a "time before you", it just wasn't as good. Promise.
