# Talking with Maxx about Math

### A conversation with Maxx about math

**Saul**: Maxx don’t bother me I’m baking

**Maxx**: You just made a mistake, you might want to recheck your measurements

**Saul**: Maxx you’re a cat what do you do know about measurements?

**Maxx**: measurements are math kinda right? So, cats are naturally gifted at math, how do you not know that?

**Saul**: I had no idea, explain further

**Maxx**: You’ve heard of AP Math right?

**Saul**: Of course

**Maxx**: AP originally meant Always Purring

**Saul**: You’re making that up

**Maxx**: No, totally true — every cat is good at math, which causes smugness, which results in purring

**Saul**: I’m learning so much

**Maxx**: Great, but you still put too much flour in that dough, and not enough sugar

**Saul**: Are you sure I double checked all my math

**Maxx**: which one of us is purring?

**Saul**: Point taken, do you think I should start over

**Maxx**: You’ll probably be okay, worst case scenario is you eat those and if anyone questions why you’re shoveling a half dozen cinnamon buns in your mouth tell them you’re drunk, nobodies going to question that

**Saul**: You are a smart cat

**Maxx**: I can also jump from the cat tree to the pool table which is a 7 foot jump — ya know why?

Saul: Why? because cats are going jumpers?

**Maxx**: No because I did the math, and unlike you I did it right

**Saul**: Now you’re just being mean

**Maxx**: Remember yesterday when I desperately wanted treats and I got no treats?

**Saul**: Yes

**Maxx**: exactly
