This little ginger ninja is about five months old. My dear friend Lani of the big heart made me lunch yesterday, so we could have some rare friend-time and I could meet little Maximus. You can see he’s a blur of activity, even though he’s already a lap-kitty just five minutes after we met.
Here he is, a blur of activity, enjoying the goatskin I brought him.
Lani took him in, from our local shelter, supposedly to keep resident-cat Dolly company.
Dolly, however, is not fully with the program. I may have mentioned that Little Maxie tends to be a blur of activity.
Here are some shots Lani took of Maxie getting his first field-lesson in claw-configuration. They work great going up, but –
— going down not so much. Here he is after falling head-first a ways, and then hauling up on a handy branch. Nice save Maxie!
