Catnip Harvest Party & Our Sick Human!

November 21st 2007 7:41 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Oh, what great times!!! Mom caught some sort of "stomach bug" and has been sleeping in and napping and acting like one of us! (I wonder if I ate less bugs if I'd act like a human?! Gasp! I better go eat something exoskeletal!!) She says she agrees that it's nice to spend all day underneath all three of us purring, but that she still wants to recover soon... Something about eating turkey? What's a turkey?

Mom did manage to bring in all the catnip from the field of myth yesterday! She put most of it in the basement. She must be hording the catnip, like Moose. He hides it under the carpet for later, and usually forgets about it. Then Captain goes tunneling under the carpet and comes back all catnip scented and we lay around and lick him... But back to the harvest! So she came up from stashing the 'nip, and had handfuls for us to play with! We were purring and biting and going genuinely wild for hours! Completely forgave her for hording the lion's share of the harvest...

Then after we'd eaten all the 'nip off the floor, Captain jumped up by Mom and sniffed at her. He got that pirate-y look in his eyes and started both licking and biting her hands and shirt! Mom was so shocked, she just sat there for a while and stared at the Captain. Then she realized that she had harvest catnip juice all over herself. AND that she hadn't licked it off like a proper cat. But I guess she hasn't eaten enough bugs for that, so she just changed shirts and washed her hands... And then we all napped on her and purred! I wish Mom was sick more often!!!

 

Sparkman: Computer GENIUS!

Yes, you know of my talents in breaking the sound barrier; you know of my tater contest championship behaviors; you know of my wool mass consumption; my mouse decimations; my legendary back flips; but few have heard the tales of my Computer Savy Skills! Ah, yes! A cat with its own diary is talented... But I'm reached another level in my computer domination! Today the laptop, tomorrow the WORLD!

It started after Mom had logged off of Catster and was taking a shower. She turned the lap top off but hadn't closed it... Enter our favorite super-spud-ster hero, SPARKMAN!

I walked into the living room and saw the laptop sitting by the table lap... A warm light AND a warm keyboard?! What more could a guy ask for in a napping spot! It was like a little kitty sauna! So I curled up.

Yawning and stretching and moving around to get comfortable, I managed to turn the computer on and get past the password page... Then as I napped and surfed my skill set, I also ran the virus scanner, managed to make the computer only open "properties" windows when humans double click on icons, and then I decided to turn off the modem... Just as a practical joke! I thought sure Mom could turn it back on! How was I to know she's not as smart as me?!

Mom managed to get all of that fixed (and was a happy that I ran the anti-virus software!), but she just couldn't figure out what I did to turn off the wireless network... So we waited until Dad came home and after much staring at me and saying "What the heck did you DO?!" They finally did something, and we're back online! (I don't they even know what they did in the end, but something worked!)

They should have just napped on the keyboard like me! It is my firm belief that naps just solve EVERYTHING! To the nap cave! errr... not on the laptop this time!

 

Back Online!

Oh purrs! We're back online!!! Mom has FINALLY come home! We're so glad because well, we needed a litter change. And Dad's socks just aren't as fun to destroy as hers.

But I did do a whole lot of damage while she was away, like chewing holes in Dad's shirts, pajamas, socks, boxers, a few towels; shredding toilet paper; barfing on Dad's important papers; biting my brothers till they screamed; I even chewed holes in the couch pillows! Rawr!

But now that Mom's home I'm all purrs and cuddles! I don't want her leaving again. So I'm being extra special good! I even help remind her to feed the fish. (And of course demand tribute for me and Captain from the fish food tube. Yum!) And she's giving me potato wedges again! The world has been set right. Now go change my litter, Mom!

 

ANOTHER Tag Game?! Okay!...

Another fun tag game! This time I have to pick 10 fellow Catsters and say a nice thing about them and the cat that tagged me. Then, send pmail or rosette to the kitties that I have tagged! This is going to be interesting!!!!

I was tagged by Chloe! She's obviously a distant cousin, cause she's got pretty orange and white markings just like me... Purrs!

I am going to tag:

Capt. Morgan! Because he lets me sleep on top of him. And smells like wet cat food.

Moose! Because he always treats me and Captain like his kittens and bathes us! My ears would never be clean without you, dude.

Andre! Because he’s my DAD! And he’s the king of his castle! Lord of the realm! And he teaches me how to be an orangie! Like when the humans go to their litter box, that’s when to get petting from a captive audience! Ha ha!

Chrissy! Because she does a whole lot of work with Navin and Buds, and can never be praised enough. She’s Fabulous!

Sebastian! Because he writes great stories and survived living with that crazy rabbit MARTY! He’s amazing.

Alaidah! She has her own blog, the bestest background ever, and and and she also tells very funny stories.

Jake! He’s a brave Canadian Mountie! I think he put on that hat and flag for Canada Day, and it was just so popular that he’s still wearing it. Because he’s just too cool.

Oscar Willard! He’s lucky enough to live in en entirely orange cat household!!! Blame all shedding on your brother?! Lucky kitty!

Vincent! A newly wed! He has the cutest tummy displaying sleeping positions. He used to be nic-named “the cute new guy” on the black and white ankle biters club!

And of course Boxie Brown! Who is willing to sit calmly next to a giant scary rat just to make his page more Halloween-y! Brave Boxie Brown!!!

Sparky Reporting: Grand-Human and Auntie Visit!!

October 9th 2007 6:08 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

The visitors spent much time worshiping and adoring us kitties, so I think that was a great success of a visit! Good times, humans! So glad they're not all-fur-geck like our last visitors. That was sad. Not getting to worship and snuggle with us must have devastated them... But this time, Grandma let us sleep in her bed even!!! And Auntie tried to throw blue mousie and play fetch with me... It was very confusing, since she's not Mom. But still fun! I think it's amazing that we fit all those humans in our house. Our house must be an amazing expandable super house or something... wow!

Oh! But I didn't tell you the BEST part! Auntie came with a bed thing in a bag! It had this loud thing you hooked up to the other thing and fiddled with and chattered about with Mom and then we saw that this flat thing they must have rolled out; it started growing! Captain was brave, I went to hide. He sat right in the middle of the flat now growing thing and said it lifted him up slowly into the air! When they were all done with the loud thing I came back in the room to find them making it up like a bed. And then AUNTIE SLEPT ON IT! We were just shocked. And worried about her. So we kept sneaking out of Mom and Dad's room and curling up with her on the now not flat bed thingie. Captain seemed particularly worried about that thing. He spent all day on it making sure it didn't go anywhere... That involved a lot of sleeping, I noticed.

Auntie reminded me that it was this time last year that my humans came and adopted me! She'd come to visit last year (like this year) with boxes full of apples from her apple tree, when she saw how upset everybody was from losing Chester. She suggested just going to "look at kittens" that were in an add in the paper, just to cheer up Mom... But then they saw ME! And clearly, they couldn't resist my cuteness... No one can!... So hard being this cute. Do you have any idea how much cuddling I get? It's insane. Humans are just plain crazy.

 

Weekend Visitors!!!

Oh purrs and back flips and bouncing around!!
I am just so excited and purring and dancing and happy to announce that my Wisconsin Grand-Humans and my Auntie are all coming to see ME! I see cuddles, and fetch playing, and cow juice, and cheese, and catnip and and and oh! Just so excited!!!! But sadly, we might not be online too much this weekend... pout...

I want to thank eve-fur-body that pawmailed and sent rosies and stars yesterday. My humans really appreciated it. And I did too, cause it gave me a little break from purring and jumping on them. Phew! That was exhausting! But with your help, I think we did cheer them up on that sad anniversary. So thank you friends!!!

Purrs and cuddles

The Return of the Infamous Blue Mousie!

October 3rd 2007 6:57 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Excitement, your name today is SPARKMAN! I am just bouncing around the house in chirps and squeaks today. I have back my BLUE MOUSIE!!! (aka the ONLY toy worth playing fetch for.) He's been gone for months. And of course, he's infamous! Infamous for his stench and constant wetness. He spends lot of time in my mouth. It's gross, but NO ONE touches but me! Ha ha! Spit defense!

This morning Mom was getting dressed and I was looking bored as usual lately. You see, she took away all the knitted and soft toys I love because I was eating them. So I was sitting on the bed moping, and Mom picked up a squishy ball and threw it for me. I watched it sail by. She was saying things like "Sparky, go get it for me! We can play fetch!" I just rolled my eyes at her. I mean really! Playing such an important game as fetch with a squishy ball? hardly any incentive there!

She gave up eventually and I moseyed along with her to the kitchen. Moose was laying on his side looking under the fridge. He does that very often because even when he hasn't lost a toy under there, he thinks he has. Captain and I could care less about it, but it seems to upset the humans. They keep all the important things in there, like cheese and cow juice. So clearly, they need to get in there and Moose rarely moves out of their way.

Mom went to get the big stick thingie to fish around under the fridge and pull out any possible Moose toys. Captain and I sat calmingly watching and waiting for her to make that "Ewww gross!" face she does when all she finds is big dust bunnies and dead ants.

Out rolls a green sparkle ball, immediately pounced on and carried away by the Moose. And then this other large and more solid dust bunny rolls out. Captain and I snuck over and sniffed it, knowing this wasn't the usual dead ant trap... Then I squealed at the very sight of a blue nose sticking out of the dust! It could only be one toy; my long lost bestest friend; THE BLUE MOUSIE!!!! (Is THAT where I put him?!)

Mom snatched him up and wiped him down with a damp paper towel. And then the most glorious, wondrous, beautiful thing; she threw him across the hallway! I dashed after him at lightning speed and trotted back to her with him in my mouth. I dropped him at her feet and wined at her. She had the most startled look on her face. What? I know I haven't played fetch with her in months, but it wasn't that I'd forgotten. It was that I was waiting for my Blue Mousie! I'm a loyal mouser!

So we've been playing fetch for almost an hour, now! It's so great! I mean, I finally have my true dear friend back! And whats more, Mom says she's going to check under the fridge first if we lose him again! Welcome home, my tastey, slimy, mess of a friend!

************************************************* ************

ps-- note from Mom:

Since Blue Mousie is made of cloth (and therefore on Sparkman's "contraband list") we're keeping him in a drawer when not playing fetch. Otherwise, Sparkman would probably eat him too. Don't worry, we're keeping the little wool-sucking/pica kitten safe AND letting him keep his favorite toy!!!
