Actually...Max is 6 years old, 13 pounds (partial maine coon) and no brain. It took 5 of his 6 years to learn his name.
It took almost as long for him to learn how to walk and hiss at the same time. For years, he would take a step, arch his back, hiss, un-arch, and repeat.
He's just not the brightest crayon in the box! When he was a kitten and my sister rescued him and his sisters after someone dumped them on a trail, he would hassle his sisters, biting them really hard on the butt and such, till he ticked them off so much they'd whirl around and gang up on him! And he'd come tearing down the hall and hide behind my mom like, "MOM!! They're picking on me!" He's afraid of air (we haven't told him there's air in the house
)! We all say it's a good thing he has Mom because he wouldn't last long without her! But he's the biggest mush-ball on the planet! There's a pic of him on my signature. We call him the world's biggest kitten.

It's so funny to watch!
Max does that when he sees the light bounce off my keys or something. There'll be 8 or 9 points of light bouncing around and he tries to go after all of them! Aren't cats wonderful?!
