I know that this is not a cat, but it just dawned on me
that I also have a Max.
This is Max the Christmas Reindeer (it said so on the box) and I got him as a Christmas present in 1986 from my mother. I was 24 at the time, don't know why a stuffed animal...
For the past 28 years, wherever I have lived, Max has sat upon my dresser, bureau, bookshelf or some other piece of furniture in my bedroom.
