A Visit With Max

Max made it here yesterday afternoon. We had a great feast and a wonderful visit. We learned a lot about life as a Catifornia cat and especially living with Buddah.

Max was so excited, he couldn't contain himself, as he told us about all his adventures on the highway. Max swung through Boise and was met by Jim Risch, the newly appointed governor. He stayed for lunch, wondering why picketers were outside the capital building. Mr. Risch said something about "property tax evaluations and people upset," but wouldn't elaborate. Max was most impressed with Hell's Canyon on the Oregon/Idaho border and even stopped at a roadside farmers market to price Idaho spuds for his Mom. Here you see how excited he was. He was too excited to eat!!
Momma gave him some petting and he finally calmed down.

He was pretty tired, so had a nice long nap.

After he napped, the four of us got together on the stairs; Mistrie even came in.
(Max has taught us a lot. He is one crazy cat!!!)

The lighting ceremony is tonight. For a full report, go to the Catolympics site and watch the lighting of the torch at 6PM PST. Follow the Catolympic games there.
