Max The Cat - A Must See!

The moment I saw this I just had to take a photograph and share it with you all!

It's only been a few days since he took up permanent residence on my desk but I actually don't mind having him up here with me. He's got his spot that he likes to get up and down from so I just moved a couple of things aside and overall, he's quite careful about where he steps if he does decide to move around.

I love that he wants to be close, even though I know it means the inevitable is probably that much closer...we're all having such an awesome time hanging out together right now, which I'll always have no matter what, so all in all, we're pretty fortunate to have each other 💖

Thanks for reading. Keep an eye out for the next "Max The Cat" update coming soon!

All photos were taken using my Samsung Galaxy S9.

Thank you for links to the introductory posts.
Looking forward to the next "Max The Cat" update!

I love that you love him!!! You're most welcome, it's so nice to get wonderful comments and feed back , really helps to decide what to post next. Max hasn't done a whole lot since my last post, might have to drag out some older pics and do a bit of a historical piece 😊

Have you met @grapthar's Blaze, Tiger, and Cleo, abd @manorvillemike's Scary Mary, Larry & how many others (eleven?) via #dailypetphotography or #catsnaps?
They post photos daily. I never tire of them.

thanks for the shout out! following max now too.

LOL - Max has to do nothing more than open his eyes, stretch, and get up from a nap, and I'll be intrigued. There's this Maine Coon named Jester, and I have -- ohhh, I blush to confess!! - watched this video of him more times than I can even count. The cover of a Nick Drake song in the background may help, but ... well, see for yourself:

Thanks so much for partaking in #dailypetphotography! Please follow @dpet for upcoming events.

Did you solve his litterbox issue?
He was an outdoor cat for nearly SEVENTEEN years...?
Have you tried unscented or all-natural litter, like the pine?
Did he go in straw or in a barn, or outdoors wherever he could find a spot....

No, unfortunately....
So far I've only tried crystals and the recycled paper pellets (which we're using now). With the pellets we occasionally see a foot print but nothing else so I'm thinking that he's wanting to use the tray but doesn't like the feel of the pellets...he was always quite discreet about where he went outside but lately I've spotted him in the garden beds on soft soil so I want to try sprinkling a layer of soil over the pellets but it's there's been so much rain here it's hard to catch a patch of dry soil.

In addition to pine, there's bamboo, cedar, flushable, and home-made (??) - some barn cats get used to straw and the smell of other animals. If Max smelled "another cat!" in his litterbox, he might rush to cover it up with his own scent. Good luck finding some dirt. Maybe dirt from the ol'home place is what he wants?

There are many valid reasons to avoid the use of commercial cat litters. Expense, Health concerns (Clay based litters are thought to have a carcinogen in them, and they can create allergy and asthma problems).
Environmental and safety concerns - Clay for the kitty litter is strip-mined while flushable litter may contaminate the water.
How many #homesteaders and #thealliance members make their own? eg. a combination of chicken feed, baking soda, and cedar shavings.... or sand, or newspaper clippings: https://cats.lovetoknow.com/Homemade_Cat_Litter
