Maxi a.k.a. Black Avenger
Maxi Fact File
Born: February 14th, 2000 in Karjaa, Finland.
Also known as: Maximus
Likes: Ham, all kinds of food, waking people up at 4.30 A.M., the smell of chlorine
Dislikes: Getting wet, vacuum cleaners
Strange habits: Maxi has developed the bad habit on peeing and pooping on the bed when the litterbox is too dirty. Maxi and Frank share the liking of high places: Maxi likes to jump onto the top of the bookshelf in the living room. In the summertime he also likes to sit on the flowers on the balcony.
Special features: Maxi is usually found laying on his back on the sofa, on the floor, on the chair, in every possible place, that is. Maxi also likes to eat yarn when the smaller person knits (that's not a healthy habit) and he likes to be in the photos when the knitted sweaters are photographed. Maxi has no pride and he has an aggressive way of begging for ham, tuna, cheese, whatever there might be, that's most likely ham in disguise, so he needs to stick his claws there anyway.
If Maxi was another animal, he would be: An eagle-owl or Bambi in the movie scene where he tries to stand on slippery ice.
Maxi in close-up
Maxi was named Maxi because his brother, the smallest of the litter, was already named Mini. The connection to the near-by supermarket is purely coincidental. Maxi is a friendly cat, he is so friendly that after licking your hand he usually wants to bite it as well (and he does not stop purring when he does that).
Maxi's mother is Cornish Rex which explains his silky fur.
Mini on Maxi: "Maxi's my brother. He's smaller so I can eat his food. We also take turns in chasing Frank so I don't have to worry about it all the time and I can eat while Maxi chases Frank."
Frank on Maxi: "Maxi's okay. He sleeps a lot and we share the piece of ham in the mornings (if we get some)."
