Seems Max is trying to train me to become a better housekeeper. Slowly I'm learning to keep the kitchen counters clear, but keeping things off the floor is a little more challenging. He's a garbage mooch like his predecessors, Zoe and Banjo so we've had to lock the cupboard under the sink once more. I have to say I'm surprised my slippers survived as long as they did. Sorry you had to see Squirtle this way son.
