Job titleHuman comforter, Feline entertainer
My day-to-day task listMorning sprints - one of the only times you will see me doing any exercise! I always race to greet the staff in the morning and even provide a leg kneading service to prepare them for the day ahead. Sleep during the day, party at night!
My favourite thingsRummaging through people's bags, licking my pudgy belly, dressing up in costumes to the great amusement of clients. Finding all the nooks and cranies to snooze in. Snooping into consult rooms to see who is coming and going.
My naughtiest habitConning my human colleagues so I get a 2nd or 3rd meal! Midnight snacks are the best. I am always breaking into food bags to satisfy my hunger. I have also been known to drop a few "surprises" in interesting areas for people to find.
What do my clients think of me?Many think I am an escapee! I am always there to greet them and they absolutely adore the attention. They enjoy my kisses and comforting rubs.
Other things you should know about me
I came in a straggly, thin stray off the streets. My owners could not be located so the kind humans at my clinic took me in! Not that they had any choice, I had made myself very very comfortable! And my humans wouldn't have it any other way! I have been told I have a very serious face. Really I am just a party animal!
I'm sexy, I'm cute! I'm popular to boot!
I'm queen'n, great hair! The vets all love to stare!
The ballots are in, and one cat has to win!
I'm perky, I'm fun, and now I'm number 1!
The names Maxine, M M M Maxine!
