Sparkman's Paw-sative Thoughts! Again!

1) It's getting too cold to be outside playing in the garden and the sun. But the fun parts move inside! There's buckets of potatoes for me to lick, and there's mice trying to move in here! (Seriously? There's 4 mouser master hunters living here. That's just not such a great life choice, mice dudes!)

2) PurrC and I compromised today and sat together in the sunny window. It actually was a great plan, since we got some social grooming time in with our basking. Multitasking win!

3) The harvested veggie garden beds are making for some great dirt rolling areas when we do go outside. PurrC, Moose, and I all had good long rolls in the dirt. We're all gritty and making the carpets a mess now. I think I'll go lounge on Mom's pillow. It was looking a bit too clean. Chow!

1) Mom took PurrC away in the car this morning. He's back and he smells like the Vet's office. He's all purry & says that he loves that Vet. Mom says he's not sick, just his annual check up time. I think he's completely totally crazy. I'm living under the bed. But he's happy, and I didn't have to go... So that's positive, right?

2) Mom let me sleep while resting a paw across her face for like a whole ten minutes last night! Then she woke up and moved my foot. But man, that was a great ten minutes! Too bad I purred so loudly about the comfy position that she woke up.

3) There's still a bin of fresh potatoes in the corner of the kitchen. I go over there, sniff it, and purr. It's like the best smelling thing ever. Every kitty needs a pile of potatoes!

 

Sparkman's Positive Thoughts!

Here's some more!!!

1) Mom and Dad have been harvesting potatoes. I sat by the bucket that came inside, purred, licked one, and gave Mom some gooey baby hungry eyes. She totally fell for it! She sliced up a tiny one and let me eat THE WHOLE POTATO!

2) PurrC and I have taken to hanging out on the couch and licked each other soggy. At first it felt kinda weird, but lately I'm really into it. I mean, it's way more fun to groom socially!

3) I got to nap out on the rocks by the veggie garden in the sunshine. It was heavenly. And Mom says she almost burned her hand on my fur when she went to pet me... Nuh-uh! It wasn't THAT hot, Mom!

Hello purrs, Everykitty! Gee I've missed you all. Mom says she and I need to get back to a better, cleaner, happier social site and out of the litter box of faces site. So here I am! She's been writing "Positive thoughts" there (almost daily). It's a fun exercise in cheering yourself up, she says we should all do it! And in attempt number 1 to use that site less and this one more, I'm going to write positive thoughts instead of her! But since I'm a cat, and I sleep most of the day, we're thinking to write the positives more like weekly.... So here it goes:

1) Green beans are finally ripe in the garden, and the potatoes are about ready to harvest. I think I could happily sit in the garden and purr all day long.

2) I finally caught that big fat mouse in the back of the garden that I've been stalking for like DAYS! Unfortunately I killed it. But Mom still gave me green beans in exchange for it! (If I don't kill them, I get their approximate weight in potatoes! YUM!)

3) It's still warm enough outside most days for my favorite kitchen window to be open. So I can nap and lick with my brothers in front of a nice chilled fall breeze. Sigh! Such an awesome spot. I can totally smell every bird that flies by, and window hunt every squirrel. You can join me, I'll pretty much just be on the back of the kitchen room couch by the open window from now till they close the window next month.

 

Sparkman laments the lack of green beans in the garden.

Outside is almost greening up! I'm so excited! I wake up, and beg to go outside. I come in and nap, then I beg to go outside again! And then I of course get the munchies and want a green bean. Picture this; I'm outside, get Mom's attention, and walk her over to where the green beans were growing last summer. The trellis is there, but there's no beans. I yell at her and she tells me that the green beans haven't grown yet. I know that. I can see the dirt and lack of leaves. I just keep hoping she'll find one like magic; pull it out of my ear like a quarter or something. I miss the fresh green beans. And I seem to go through this routine with Mom every day... Groan... Do you have any green beans in your yard? Can I move there? And can I bring my Captain? I don't think I can move without my pirate.

 

Sparkman whines about the rain...

Hello purrs to all my fur-ends! Don't worry, I haven't left you and logged off Catster for good! But I have been unusually quiet lately. With all the cyber bullying and issues lately, I've just gotten out of practice of making Mom log on and help me find all my friends. But I'm not planning to be gone forever! And get well soon, Catster web page!

I've been getting to go outside again, FINALLY! There's finally no snow in my yard and grass is just starting to green up. (I live in a cold place!) But today it's raining. Mom and Dad are both home to take me outside (I only go outside with my humans and on a leash. I am a very proper and civilized dude cat). But it's raining! So Mom opened the back door so I could sit by the screen door and sniff all the rain smells. So now I'm lounging by the screen door and whining at the humans when they get close "Make it stooooop! I wanna go outsidddddde! Ehhhhhhh!" Rain rain go away, Sparkman wants to go out and play! Ahhhhhhh! pout.

 

Sparkman has a lot to say.

I have a lot to say. Mom was trying to sleep in on her day off, but I have too much to tell her about. And clearly you need to hear my meowings too!

There was a bird out the window and and there was a squirrel and and I thought I saw a mouse on the floor in the dark but it was just a toy that PurrC left there. And and and and then there was another bird out the window. And the kibble is tastier today, did you do something different? PurrC bit my head. Why can't the faucet just be left on drip for me at all times? Can I have a green bean for breakfast? Why do we have to keep the Moose, I don't like him. Do you really need to sleep for so long, humans?! Can I have a potato? And why are there kids outside the window on the street corner every day at this time? Did you know that people walk dogs on leashes out the window? And why is the snow still here? Can I have a potato? And did you see there was another bird?! Captain tastes like tuna today. Did he fall in the fish tank? Do goldfish taste like tuna? Can I eat the lemon grass plant and barf it on the carpet? There was a squirrel RIGHT outside the window. Can I have a potato?.. Mawwwww! Mawwwww! Maaaaaaaaaawwwwwww!!!

 

Sparkman is naughty.

I'm having a tiff with my Captain this morning. He was in the liter box and it was just offensive. It didn't smell, and I don't think he was doing anything unusual. But I was just ready to beat him up! I started out waiting outside the door to the room, hunkered down, shaking my little butt, and stalking him. I even raised my hackles! Mom saw me and was all "Aww! Look at the Sparkyman playing!" Then Once Captain came out of the box and started walking across the floor, I sprung into action! I lion run raced over, grabbed him by the neck and rolled him over bunny kicking. Captain gave out a yelp and threw me off, leaving me with a mouth full of black and white fur. Then Dad and Mom came running in the room. Captain jumped up to the scratching post, where Mom checked him over and gave him hugs. Dad just kinda looked at me and tried to take the fur out of my mouth. Then they left me on the floor, heaped over in a huff and periodically whimpering for attention.

Captain went to hang out on the radiator, but PurrC was already over there. PurrC takes his tips on how to behave from me. So he kinda gave Captain the stink eye, and Captain sat for a little while, but didn't get comfortable.

Now he's on Dad's lap with Moose and I'm on the couch trying to get some attention. Geez those humans like ignoring you when you're mad! I wanna be babied! I want attention! I want pets! I want green beans! Whaaaaaa!

 

Sparkman O'Leary McOrangebottom loves potatoes.

Happy almost St. Patrick's Day, everykitty! In past years I've changed my name to "Sparkman O'Leary McOrangebottom!" and I would this year, but since Catster is somewhat under construction, I thought I'd just write a diary entry about it instead. Happy Potato Day! It truly is the greatest holiday ever. Potatoes potatoes potatoes! Mom puts a pile of them out and lets me sniff and purr at each one. It is truly a wonderous day! Purrrrrs! I love you, Potato. And I love YOU, potato. And I adore you too, Potato... You're also a loved potato... I can hardly wait!

 

Sparkman's a DDP! And Mom tried to share yogurt with the- Sparkman.

Hey! I'm a Daily Diary Pic! Thank you, HQ! This is my first award since Catster's almost demise last week. And I am SO VERY happy to be here still celebrating with my friends and loved cats. Purrs, everykitty!

Now, you clearly are logging on to read an amazing story of my cuteness. So here's a snippet of my morning escapades:

Mom's been eating these little cups of yogurt lately. I liked it when she was eating the plain yogurt in the big container. Plain yogurt is nummy. Not every day, but now and then I'd lick out the bowl for her when she was done. Mom says we don't usually mention it online because well, I'm known for my amazingly awesome eating habits (green beans, raw potatoes, kale...). But these little yogurt tubs are another matter. One of those few typical cat treats I partake in.

I saw Mom eating what smelled like awesome yogurt treat, so I came over to purr and be a good cute little boy that deserves yogurt. I laid it on really thick. I licked her fingers. I sniffed at her face and purred at her. Then I raised up my paw and just lightly brushed her cheek with my paw, claws relaxed but present. (You gotta remind these humans that you're being gentle and loving, but that you are the one with that could lash out and claw their eyes out at any moment!) So Mom coo-ed back at me and leaned over so I could rub my nose and cheek on her lips and face. Which I did, but I gave her an impatient look of "OKAY OKAY OKAY! Just finish your yogurt quicker I want some!" I then resorted to my kitten voiced yelp an hop at her, drooped my eye lids a little in a huffed purr noise.

She finally gave up the yogurt cup. I purred and ducked my head in, all excited about creamy goodness... And then YUCK! I sat up, stopped purring, and gave Mom a very angry cat look. She TRICKED me! I thought it was going to be plain yummy yogurt; and instead it was BLOOD ORANGE flavor! I ran off in disgust. I mean, who buys the weird citrus flavor?! And who the heck eats that gross stuff?! Mawwwwwwm! You're horrible! Hmpf!
