I remember reading somewhere that parenting is pretty much just telling your kids when they have to stop doing whatever it is they are doing and by when. The things toddlers do usually are a combo of or one of the following three things: dangerous, annoying and/or painful.
Max loves to bite, scratch, hit, torment and laugh at anything he can get his hands on. Our poor cat, Cayman, stays as far away from Max as he can at ALL times. This makes cats all the more elusive to Max so when he encountered Simon over the holidays and discovered just how cool of a cat he was, Max went crazy trying to experience all that a tolerant cat has to offer.
So a big thank you goes out to Simon, the most tolerant cat I know.
