Feeling Better!

Hi kitties! Fear not, the Sparkman is back in full cuteness and wellness this morning! Mom's not sure if I: ate too much grass outside; had a hair ball; or just caught some weird 24 kitten flu. But I am definitely feeling my chipper and crazy self again this morning. And I would say "Potatoes of the world, look out! Here comes the SPARKMAN!" but Mom says I only get one small potato treat today. I kept it down, but she says no more than that.

My Captain Morgan's being a sickie now! He was taking care of me all day yesterday, licking my head and burying my barf under important documents and Mom's favorite magazines... And this morning he's got the same troubles I had! Mom's worried (cause he's so melodramatic when he's sick), but I keep telling her that it's clearly a 24 thing! He'll be fine tomorrow, or my name's not Sparkitty Spark Spark. But for now, he's napping on the radiator next to his morning treats (which he usually wolfs down!). Poor Captain! I guess it's my turn to be Florence Nightingale, go lick his head!

 

Too Much Partying!

I think there's been a little too much partying! I went in early from being outside, and Mom thought I looked a little green in the face. I asked to go in, while Moose, Captain, and Mom all stayed outside. I was just feeling awful. I won't go into the gory details, but Mom was amazed at how much I barfed! And I spent the rest of the day on the radiator, heating up my churning tummy. That always seems to make me feel a little better. I'll tell Mom to update all my fans when I perk up... But for now, I'm going to try and take a break from all the celebrating.

It has been so great to be your Cat of the Week!

I'd like to thank the academe of cats that chooses this honor;
my Humans for moderately obeying me;
Captain for bathing my ears every day this week;
my Grandhuman for calling me to praise my amazing-ness;
Moose for being my biting bag this week;
all my friends (most of whom I haven't thanked yet) for my rosies and special awards;
my clubs for singing my praises;
my Dad Andre for being there;
Uncle Spot for writing my praises;
And most of all, I wish to once again thank that most beautiful of all the veggies, so crispy, so delicate in flavor, so ripe in barn yard scent, that illustrious POTATO!

Oh, so wonderful!
All of you!

 

Tree Trimmers Vs. the Tree Hugger

Excuse me Mr. Tree Trimmers of Duluth, but you seem to have missed the fact that I am still Cat of the Week today! You see, the sun finally came out, the outside warmed up a bit, and Mom took us all out on our leashes. And what happened? A chain saw, big truck, and a whole tree chipper all started roaring just a block from my front yard!

Moose did the all out panic, dashed onto the porch; Captain laid his ears back and also ran towards the porch; but me, Mr. Cat-or-the-Week, I just flattened myself on the grass, laying my ears back, and quaking in fear! It was an all out terror and panic! How rude can the tree trimmers be?! The only five minutes I was outside all day, they pick THEN to destroy trees just a block from my house?! Why?! Can't they see I'm the center of all attention this week?! And here I am, a certified tree hugger... Mr. Tree Trimmers, you need to take the rest of MY week OFF!

 

Nap Time For Sparkman.

This just might be my last full day as Cat of the Week! So I'm going to get in a few more potato treats, cuddles, and general spoiling while I can. To start with, I'm chasing Moose off my favorite nap spot. That's MY couch pillow, Moosie! I also got milk from Mom when she refilled that gross coffee stuff she drinks, and I got extra pounce treats with my morning potato snack! Next I'm hoping to get a trip outside, but first Mom has to turn the heat on outside! It's chilly out! And what's more, I explored the backyard yesterday. It's soggier than the sock of Dad's that I dragged in the water dish! So while Mom's out turning up the heat, I told her she should do a little dehydrating the grass for me. Thanks, human!

But for now, it's nap time! So this is Sparkman, Cat of the Week, reminding you that a happy cat is a sleeping cat. Quit petting me Mom, it's nap time! Purrs every kitty!

The Terrifying Saga of the New Bed!

April 26th 2008 8:17 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

The other day, Mom was cleaning and moving furniture around. I mean, even the couch with all the treasure trove of toys below it was moved and vacuumed under! (Toys set aside for us, of course!) Since I'm still a little nervous about that vacuum thing, I was hiding up on the stair case watching her doing all this weird cleaning and re-arranging stuff.

Then at dinner, she led me and my brothers into the second bedroom with our food. She shut the door, and left us in there with our litter box, water, dry food, and a few pillows to nap on. I was prancing around, enjoying the virtues of our little kitty condo, when I heard strange voices in the hallway! I ran to hide, while Captain Morgan ran to the door to peak under and watch.

I kept tunneling further and further under the furniture, while all sorts of noises raged through out house: drills, hammers, explosions, air raids, tornadoes, thunder, the vacuum, king kong, and other loud noises I was sure were monsters sent from planet X to eat me! Oh, no! It was terrifying. And Captain spent the whole time laying by the door with his paw sticking out under it! Wasn't he afraid the alien invaders would eat his toes?! I heard they do that.

The noises suddenly stopped. The aliens and monsters left, and then they opened the door for us. I stayed put, you never know when the aliens are trying to trick you! A while later, I heard Mom calling me and walking around the room. She was crawling and looking for me everywhere. I chirped lightly to let her know that I wasn't dead of a heart attach, just generally terrified out of my gourd again. But when her eyes met mine under the futon, I knew I was safe and crawled out.

She carried me to the bedroom, where I saw the STRANGEST thing! The bed was levitating! I mean, there was all this space under the mattresses. Captain and Moose were playing under it already, and he pointed out to me that it wasn't levitating, it was up on stilts! I looked up to see that there were whole upright logs and beams and branches and such... After much timid exploring, and batting at Mom's fingers through the foot board, I've decided it's alright and can stay.

But I now know why Mom and Dad built us a cat walk. And here I thought they were bowing to my cool-ness as Cat of the Week! No, my friends, the humans have once again tried to be cleverer than I. You see, we now have a canopy bed! And apparently our cat walk is supposed to keep us distracted from hopping on the top of it?! Ha! Good luck, Mom and Dad! It's just a matter of days until we figure out how to get up there, just you wait!

 

Mr. Cat-of-the-Week Puts Up New Photos!

April 23rd 2008 9:14 am

I told Mom that we really needed to put up a few new photos of all the excitement Catster's CAT OF THE WEEK has been having around here... Firstly, the snow's gone! Finally! And I can romp outside in the sun without cold toes and frozen fur.

Mom's still making me wear the harness and leash. I feel goofy, but she doesn't want me hurting my neck... And I do still have a habit of running to the end of the leash and then hopping around. But only when there's something really exciting like a chipmunk or birdie! (Oh, and also when I get spooked by a big truck driving by.)

Dad got a great photo of me returning with me fetch "mousie" last week, so clearly you all needed to see it! The birds by me are just paintings on our hallway wall... Mom said we needed to mural the hallway. So we did! Captain and I were a great help with that project. Mom could barely keep our noses out of the paint! Captain tried to paint the floor with blue paw prints. But Mom stopped him and wiped off his feet and the floor... Silly Mom!

Then the REAL excitement: I officially have my very own, very deluxe, very spoiled kitty, very sturdy CAT WALK! Mom and Dad put up the first wall and "up route" this weekend. It's in the bedroom we all sleep in, and it is so very high up! I like going up there in the early morning to howl and yelp down at my sleeping family. This morning Mom woke up and just said "Shhh! Mr. Cat-of-the-Week! You cuteness!" Ha ha! I can get away with ANYTHING this week! Do my bidding, humans!

 

Thank You, Catster! I love you, too!

For those of you who log onto my page before checking the main page of Catster; you may want to go check it out... You see, my potato licking and consuming habits have finally been recognized! My purring little face is on the main page as CAT OF THE WEEK! I am just purring my little heart out and Mom's got the potato peeler out to reward me! Oh, thank you Catster HQ! I love you, too!

And of course, a huge thank you to the potatoes of the world. It's for my love of you that I owe everything! Mom says a good 30% of my mass, and probably 80% of my cuteness comes from you, Po-Tah-Toes! Purrs...

 

How a Goat-Cat Celebrates Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, kitties of the world!! Mom says we're reducing my carbon footprint by not changing my litter box! Ha ha, take THAT Global Warming! Eww. But Mom, Moose STINKS!

That and we're planting seeds later... which I'm planning on eating! I sure hope they're planting beans again. Those were tasty. Not even one made it to plant-hood. Rawr!

I told Mom we should eat nothing but raw veggies today. She agreed, but says I still have to eat my dry cat food. Bleck! Can't I just live on potatoes, green beans, and leafy greens?! I'm a vegi-cat-ian, even if that's a made up word!

Off to be my tree hugging, earth rolling, veggie stealing, frog kissing, goat urged, and tail biting self! Purrs to your humans! And keep Moose out of your litter box.
