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!!!

 

A Pirate Belch For Me!!!

Mom woke up to a new surprise this morning; I dragged her pair of pirate pajamas into the kitchen and ate them! That is, I ate a few holes in them. But the way she acted, it was as if I'd eaten the entire pair of pajama pants! Silly Mom! Captain was offended, but then again he gets mad when anything pirate gets messed or chewed on or lost or somehow mysteriously buried under the carpet... What prudes I live with! Won't even let a goat have a little bite of flannel every now and then! Yeesh!

As a side note, maybe this will teach Mom not to leave her pajamas all over the bedroom! My humans do need to learn to pick up their stuff every now and then. After all, us cats try real hard to clean up around here. We put all our toys where they belong, under the couch or fridge. And we bury our food dish with the dish towel (which by the way, is really danged hard to get down when the humans hang it up away from our easy reach). Further, I personally eat and devour every scrap of potato and green veggie that Mom so carelessly drops on the floor! Does she think that's a treat? It's a chore some days! Mom, I am a goat not a vacuum. Oh, time to go... I think I feel a pirate pajama hair ball coming up!

 

Purrs Purrs and Furs!!

Mom has really found me exactly what I need now-- It's a piece of sheep skin! It's still got this nice layer of wool on it. I can chew and nurse on it and yet I can't bite off chunks to swallow! It's like everything I ever wanted without being dangerous and making Mom worry about me!

Also, my silly humans finally gave up trying to find dog toys for me to chew on, and are just slicing up pieces of potatoes for me to chew on!!! Life is so good right now, I am just sitting on the couch purring and bathing every paw. So happy!!!!

I got to sleep on top of Captain last night!! He's kinda boney, but makes such a great pillow/mattress! I LOVE the cooler weather! Mean even more cuddles than usual. Purrrrrssss

 

BURP!

Oh, excuse me! I just ate Mom's sweater, and am having a little bit of an upset stomach. Mom's acting live she is too, but that might be brought on by her total and complete over reaction to me eating her sweater! Come on, Mom! You KNOW I'm a goat! Don't leave it hanging half out of the sweater bin and expect it NOT to get eaten!!!

Mom also says she's not letting us outside today because 1. the neighbors are having their roof re-done and she thinks we'll be afraid of the air compressors and nail guns and stuff being thrown off the roof; and 2. she says that there's a huge hawk and eagle migration going through Duluth!!! A-paw-rently, she and Dad went to a "Hawk Ridge Festival" and hung out with other humans watching thousands of cat-eating-large-birds flying by... Sounds like a horrible event that I should have sheltered my easily scared humans from! And besides, could you really see a hawk picking up ME?! They'd never get off the ground! Mom!! (Although that air compressor next door is quite scary... hrmmm)

So we're sitting inside, quite literally drooling at the bird feeder Dad put up for us outside the front window... I mean, at any given time there must be five chickadees! And you KNOW those are Captain's arch enemies, every last one. He just gets so mad at those little birds... Mom said one even flew into the glassed in front porch yesterday when we were all in the other part of the house! Dang, I'm mad that I missed THAT one! She says if any more fly in (and get trapped), they're fair game for us kitties. So I for one am waiting with my mouth open wide and ready! But for some stupid reason she keeps flaying her arms and shooing them away from the porch door when she goes in and out. Hey Mom! Chase them IN the house, not away! Hmpf!

 

Ode to Cabbage...

Okay, new fun fun TASTY thing that Mom said I probably wouldn't like, but that I could have a little piece anyways; CABBAGE!!! It's crunchy and green and I licked it all over and carried it around before snuggling up to munch it down.
Oh, cabbage!
Such a tasty new treat!
I love to eat!
Ohhhhh, cabbage!

Mom says she's trying to nip my Wool Sucking/Pica in the butt by giving me things that are good to snack on (instead of clothing and blankets)... Well, Mom here's a new fav: CABBAGE!!!! I mean, I did grab my potato wedge and gnaw on it after I'd finished my cabbage piece... Cabbage isn't as great as potatoes. Nothing's as good as potatoes.

I'm liking this "Wool Sucking" business. Ever since that diagnosis, I've been getting treats, new doggie style toys, and SOOOOooo much attention! Mom and Dad have been following vet's advice and trying to play with me at scheduled intervals, and to wear out my energy. So I try and oblige, but I have a lot of energy to burn! And sometimes I think they get more worn out than me! Ha ha!!!

 

Wool Sucking Ninja Goat!!!

I just overheard Mom and the V-E-T talking on the phone about me... Apparently I'm not a goat, but a Wool Sucker! It means I'm bored, insecure, or I was just weened too early... Anyways it also means I tend to eat everything in sight like a goat. And need to stop.

WHAT?! But I LOVE to eat weird things!!!

Anyone else out in Catster land had this problem?
