Enjoying the patio. And the ants!!!

Adorable Min. She prefers to stay close to home and doesn't try to go beyond the patio... unlike Max who we had to train to stay on the patio when he's not harnessed.

Sleeping on hubby's lap and chair. Even in Summer he demands to be covered with a tent blanket.

What time is it, Mom? I love how these two sleep together and the crazy positions they get into.

Sleeping with one eye open.

Pardon Max's neck there (Min had a very bad dream). This is Max's new favourite perch -- on the shelf above the washer dryer stack. I have to make sure I check on his location before closing the door to the laundry closet. ha ha

They love the cabin we always stay at on Salt Spring Island.

We bring a net fence with us to tie up on the deck to prevent escapes.

Max was fixated on the rabbits that were around the property.

Max, contemplating escape.
maximillian_von_strange_31973726_173802579949693_1303301336275615744_n.jpg


Max, wayyyyy up in the rafters.

Max meows at Hubby to help him up there, and then he just sits there, watching... gargoyling.

Max and Min have such a wonderful life!
So love seeing them on the patio and outside at your vacation house.

That pic of Max on top of the woodblocks outside is awesome. And Min licking her lips, cute and naughty. She's getting more and more beautiful!

Thanks for sharing. Watching Max and Min pics always make me happy!

Awesome piccies. :)
How did you train Max to not go beyond the patio when free? Because while Pixie stays on the paved area, Livvy wants to be a wild, roaming cat...and leads Jez astray along with it. I have to leash them if I can go on the patio, or they'd be wooosh gone.
Don't even ask how often I have to retrieve Livvy from the barn, because she wedged through somewhere I didn't think she'd fit through... (GRRR)
Hard to believe that she was "OMG NO!" the first time she was out, and Jez was the one skedaddling it. Now? Other way around.

@Silke -- Hubby and I agreed on a plan and while it took most of a year, it finally hit home with Max. We would allow them on the patio unleashed and told them that if they left the patio, they'd go back inside. Min could care less and sticks by any way.

Max values his outside time. So every time he went out of the patio bounds, we'd pick him up, put him inside, and continued being with Min on the patio while he sat on the other side giving us stinkeye from the patio glass door. We wouldn't allow him out for several days after that. And this continued for many months until a couple months ago he just... stayed.

No clue if this will for your wild girl or not! Good luck!

I love the log cabin and lake(?) shots. Mr. Marcus A.A. would love to join Max up high and gargoyle along with him. Cleo would want to go canoeing.

@Cleopatra Beers -- it really is a beautiful place. We try to go twice a year, off season (November and April). The cabin is fully stocked with all conveniences. And we always go to the same cabin because of the view of the lake. It's so peaceful. And Max totally knows his way around the grounds and both remember the cabin.

Queen Cleo will like to know that canoes are available to all guests! And Max would be happy to share his perch with Mr. Marcus A. A.

If you're curious: Cusheon Lake Resort | Cabins on the Lake on Salt Spring Island And we stay in cabin 5.

More more more! I love, love, love the stunning black and white photos! Very artsy and worthy of framing! They have it so cool in that cabin, makes every other cat jealous I'm sure. That's so cool that you taught Max to stay on the patio. I should try this too since I have the same problem. You truly are a cat whisperer...

@Zab -- ha ha, thanks. Actually, I have to give Hubby credit with coming up with that idea. I honestly didn't think it would work, but we kept at it and... well, it worked.

The ONLY thing we haven't figured out is how to stop Max from waking me up at 5:00 in the morning to do nothing more than for me to go downstairs and lay on the couch (to finish sleeping) so that Max can cuddle up against the back of my legs (which he does in bed at night already) and for Min to sleep on my head (which she doesn't do in bed at night). It's like they just want a change in venue. But it disrupts my sleep. sigh. But they're my babies.
