Hi everyone. This is Max. Luckily I don't have to report on my health but once a year. Anyway, Mom put me in the hunter green pet taxi today and she and Daddy took me to see Dr. Gail, who I affectionately call the " stabby lady." I yowled, I mean sang real loud all the way there. I made sounds even I didn't know I could make. Maybe I should sing opera? But once I got there I was as quiet as, dare I say it, a mouse. Mommy put me on the scale and I weighed 9.47 pounds. I lost a pound since last April and Dr. Gail said that was good. She gave me my shots, and I didn't even move or make a sound. She then trimmed my claws, and I was good for that. Mommy couldn't believe how well behaved I was. Dr. Gail even gave me a treat!

Mommy had warned the staff that I am a biter, but I was an angel. When Dr. Gail found out Mommy gives me catnip she told Mommy to take me off it and get rid of the catnip filled toys as well. She explained that since catnip is a drug, it can make me aggressive and even see things that aren't really there. (I think that's called a hallucination) So I am now off the good stuff. I never rolled in it, only ate it. Maybe I'll stop biting Mommy now. I never bit Daddy though. I don't know why.

Well, I'm going to go lay down now. My tummy is a little upset from the medicine. I'm rather low key now like humans get after some medicine. I'm sure I'll be myself tomorrow .And yes, I "sang" all the way home for Mommy and Daddy. I just had a birthday on April 23 and I am now 3 years old! Happy Birthday to me!

    Happy Birthday Max! I celebrated my one year adoption on Saturday! I am SO happy that I found my mama and my dad. They told me that I was meant to be their doggy and they knew it as soon as they saw me. It's not good to bite your mommy, so it's good they stopped giving you that catnip stuff. I used to bite my mom and dad, but I'm almost a grown-up now, so I don't do that anymore. Glad you are so healthy!

Your friend,

    Hi Max. This is Max answering. I used to talk to Thor a lot. I don't like the vet at all. I wish I could be good like you were but I just can't. I am sorry to hear you can't have catnip any more. I love to roll in it and eat it, then go to sleep. You sound like a small kitty. Only 9 pounds! Wow, I am doing good to stay around 11 pounds. You have a really good Mom and Dad and I am glad you had a good birthday. You and I could be brothers we look so much alike. Maybe someday we could sing a duet!
