Oh! So that strange, badly shaped litter box by the fireplace isn't a litter box? It's apparently something called an "Ash Bucket." All I know is that it's so small that I was missing while perching on it, and then having to paw that powdery gray stuff out of it and onto the floor (and some books; and the cat beds...). Oops, my bad!
New Mom says it's gross, but an honest mistake. Then New Dad cleaned the bucket, while Mom vacuumed the floor. Man, these are the moments that I realize I've found a good home. I hear that missing litter boxes & using the wrong places are like #1 on why cats lose their homes... My new humans just cleaned it up and forgot about it! Phew!
And as a side note; I think that Sparkman cat's a Gorgon. When he looks at me and makes that noise, I swear I turn to stone every time. He's one scary dude cat. I'm not gunna mess with him any more. Captain, however, is still very fun to jump on!

Oh that was a honest mistake! Loved that story!
Have a great day!

Any kitty would have made that mistake, and have found a WONDERPURR home. You are so lucky. Sparkman may take getting used to, meow with him about his potatoes.
Oops! How embarrassing! I'm so glad you have fantastic parents who understand that these things happen. Sparkman a gorgon? Hmm... maybe that's why he likes to eat strange things like potatoes and fabric?
That definitely sounds like an honest mistake! Paws up to your parents for knowing that- you've got a great forever family!
