Photo[s] of the Week: The Tale of MaxGoldberg and the Bad Storm That Never Came

MaxGoldberg, of the Boca Raton Goldbergs, is our nervous nelly of a cat. A strange voice in the house, a knock at the door, an unwanted sound, send him scurrying under a bed somewhere.

So it came as no surprise that, this week, as we listened to the news of the horrific storms and tornadoes that rumbled across the South and watched our local news warning us that we were in for the same bad weather: possible tornadoes, hail as big as a golf ball, straight-line winds in gusts up to 70mph, and possibilities of over a foot of rain, that MaxGoldberg would become even more uneasy..


Tuesday morning, Max took his post at the window checking the weather, watching the sky darken .... 

Then he made his report known to me before making his own decision ...


He spent the day hiding under the bedspread, waiting for a storm that never came.


Not a wind.
Not a hail storm.
Nary a drop of rain.
MaxGoldberg's motto is Better safe than sorry.
Or I ain't takin' no chances!

I could use a weather cat. The doggies just bound out in any kind of weather and seem to think thunder is there for added threats to The Squirrel.

That's a great story. Buster borghese is much the same. Max is such a handsome cat

Reminds me of my very first cat, Randy.

Randy would for example growl when someone knocked on the door.

Then he also loved to play fetch.

And Randy was a water freak. To the point - you'd be standing in the shower and he'd step in with you.

@Truth
We had a cat, Spunky, who loved taking showers with us. She'd stand on the tubs edge, stick in a paw, then another, another, another, and then she'd just jump into it!
