Spring (aka Extended Winter) Tag!

April 16th 2013 6:12 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

I got tagged in the Spring Tag Game! Again! This time by Caramello #1271358...
And since I'm excited about any and all attention lately, I'm playing AGAIN!

But here's my new twist; it's been snowing and snowing and snowing and snowing here ever since I wrote that last one. So I don't really feel like this is spring. It's more like an extended winter. So here's my favorite things about spring, aka extended winter!

5 Things I Like About Spring (aka Extended Winter)

1) Radiators!
2) Mom and Dad stay inside more to worship and adore me.
3) Snow melting off of boots! So fun to watch! I love drips.
4) Snow in my water dish! I just love it when Mom gives me an iceberg. I bat at it and purr and lick it and make a mess all over the floor... SOooooo much fun!
5) Cuddle time with my Captain. He sleeps more when it's cold and snowy outside, and I cuddle up and nap with him! I love my Captain!

And I'm tagging the first 5 kitties who read this and haven't been tagged... Thanks for reading and TAG! You're it!

 

Sparkman Goes Nuts For a New Potato Variety..

April 8th 2013 3:13 pm

OH! That's the greatest! That's the best one! Mom, where have you been hiding this flavor of potato?!?!

I just got done attacking Mom while she was making dinner. She got a NEW TYPE of potato at the store, and I think it's the greatest flavor in all the world. Mom says "Whoa! Sparks are flying!" And she's barely exaggerating! I exhausted myself hopping around begging for more and more and more till Mom said "Enough! You'll barf! I really can't give you any more."

So they're called "Yukon Rose" potatoes. Mom says they have a yukon gold inside color and red skin. Both features are not usually my favorite things, I'm a russet man... But I can't explain it. I'm just in LOVE!

Who would have thought there were more potato flavors out there for me to try?!

This beats out my obsession with spinach lately. For a few weeks I'd been running over to the fridge door and chattering at humans to please please PLEASE get me a spinach leaf and break it up and hand feed me the little pieces... But that was yesterday and yesterday's gone. I am WAY more excited about these potatoes right now!

 

Spring Tag Game!!!

So I was tagged by Charlie!!! in the spring tag game. Here are my five favorite things about Spring.

1. The longer lasting sun spots on the library floor!
2. GREEN GRASS!!! Greeen grasss!!! Peaking up among the snow, it's a great reason to brave the wet muddy cold snowy slushy business.
3. Open windows!!! All the awesome smells I can sniff!!
4. Squirrels and birdies get more active so I get even better kitty TV!
5. I have an excuse to attack the Moose! We have spring tom cat fever or something and wrestle mania gets an extra kick! Bwa ha ha!... Okay so mainly this spring I've been wrestling PurrC. And he loves it.

I'm tagging:

The first 5 of my un-tagged friends to read this... Let me know in the comments who you are and I can go read your happy spring things!

 

Open Window! DDP!

I'm a daily diary pic today! Yayyy! That's something nice and cheerful, thank you Diary Gal! I'm trying to keep positive today, and not think about losing kitty friends... I've spent my day puffed up in a loaf of bread trying to keep warm by the open window. Mom says it's a little chilly outside still, but we couldn't resist opening up the window for fresh air. And I am determined to sniff every breeze that blows in! There's still snow everywhere and melting water mud all over. Mom thought of taking us outside, but said we wouldn't like it. The humans rearranged furniture this week and put one of my favorite couches to sit on the back of right in front of my favorite squirrel watching window! This was clearly done just to please me. And I love it! In fact, that's where I am right now, puffed up and trying to purr about the open window... Brrrrrr... I mean, Yayyyy!

 

Good Bye, Chrissy!

It's hard to write this, but one of my best Catster friends, Chrissy, will be making her journey to the bridge tomorrow. We're been friends almost as long as I've been on Catser! One of the smaller humans she lived with also adored potatoes, and so she could just totally relate to me at that young kitten age when I discovered the food love of my life... She sent me potato cards, cook book, funny gifs and potato poem things! Mom still uses what she calls "Sparkman's fav. cook book!" now and then. She's really a wonderful friend that I will miss.

But she has good humans who are making sure she doesn't suffer any more. She is 21 years old, and failing in health. She writes not to be sad for her, it really is her time. And she's going to be with all her friends at the bridge, including her boyfriend, the amazing Arnold P.!... It's hard to take her advice, but Mom says we'll celebrate the friend I had with a big pile of potatoes! Or as she taught me to say; Po-Tah-Toessssss! Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew!... Purrs and loves, my friend! And as my Captain Morgan says, may the wind be ever at your back.

 

Bunny Hops & Bunny Kicks!

Whoa! You won't believe what happened to me this morning! For all my new friends, Mom and I play "fetch" in the mornings while she drinks her coffee. Back in the day, I used to grab my toy and bring it back to her like 35 times in a row! But lately I run after it, wait for her to catch up, and then run after it again... Mom calls it "Chase!"

So we were playing "Chase." between me and the fetch mouse was the dining room carpet. Moose and PurrC were evenly spaced out lounging on the carpet. I ran after my mouse, bunny hopping over both of them! Boingy boingy...

Mom started giggling, PurrC looked around him in total confusion, but Moose just took offense! I was distracted sniffing my fetch mouse, and Moose came running over and attacked me! He hopped on my back, bit me, and bunny kicked me! What?! I'm usually the one who attacks the Moose, not Moose attack on the Sparkman!

I am so confused.

 

Sparkman Gets White Tissue Paper To Hangout On!

March 28th 2013 9:35 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

I was kinda moping all morning. I didn't want to play fetch. I didn't want to follow Mom around and purr at her. I didn't want to play with my brothers... All I wanted to do was lounge on the kitchen radiator and pout. I perked up briefly for potatoes, so Mom knew I wasn't sick at least... But I was really feeling down.

Mom finally figured out why and fixed it, though! You see, I've been ignoring my waxed paper lately in favor of a piece of blue tissue paper in the sun room! It's warm, crinkly, and mine! But last night someone barfed near it and Captain Morgan dragged it over the barf to hide it. That means when Mom cleaned it up, she made the whole area smell like cleaning spray and ripped off part of my blue paper. So it smelled funny and was smaller. Not cool, Mom.

So she made up for it this morning! She found me two new pieces of white tissue paper and covered them with catnip! Wowsies! I'm rolling and purring and all ready for fetch time now, Mom! Yayyy! WHITE tissue paper time! This is awesome!

 

Sparkman Likes Having Visitors...

March 23rd 2013 9:32 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

I have more humans at my house to worship and adore me! They came from all over Wisconsin, just to see beautiful tiny me... There's my Auntie and my Grandhumanmom! Grandhumanmom talks to me on the phone usually, so when I hear her talking, I run over to the phone to listen. But she's here now, so that gets confusing and sometimes I get a little scared of the phone voice coming out of a human, but she's a good human. She gives me lots of ear pets and talks about how amazingly wonderful I am. Clearly, that's the whole reason these human have come to visit. So I'm laying on the heated sunroom floor, right in the middle of them and posing in my cutest sleepy time poses just for their enjoyment. And every now and then I grump at them to look over and watch me. It's great having more humans around! I clearly don't get enough attention with just Mom and Dad around. More pets! More hugs! More kisses! More potatoes, pleaseeeee!

 

PurrC is Rampaging!

March 21st 2013 3:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Wow PurrC is crazy today! Mom said he was attacking her ankles while she was vacuuming. And he chased me around after he found me sitting on my favorite waxed paper from Hawaii... Then he sat behind Mom on the computer chair, nipping at her sweater and belt loops. Eventually she gave him the chair, figuring she must not have known that was PurrC's chair. Now he's rampaging the first floor, being a carpet troll, and attack licking everybody that comes by. So far Moose has gotten the worst of it. Moose was so hyped up, he ran over to Mom and when she reached to pet his head in greeting, he bit her fingers and purred!... Watch out everykitty! My fuzzy brother has gone INSANE! And I think it's contagious!

I'll be hiding in the library till he gets all this craziness out of his system. Captain Morgan's on the cat walk, where fluffy-butt-dude can't hop. Moose is still running in circles (possibly after his own tail at this point)... And PurrC is still lurking about! Watch out for your ankles, Mom! Ohhhh, too late!

 

New Litterbox!

New litterbox! New litterbox! I'm on high alert monitoring the developing situation here at my house. It seems the humans want to clean another litterbox! They've added a non-clumping, uncovered, blue box in the corner of the sun room. Strangely it's right where PurrC likes to be naughty and poo outside the box... Where's he going to go now?!

You will all be pleased to know I was the first to use it. Then I went over to the other one in the room and used it too. Captain waited till I was out of the box and tackled me... What?! It's my job to be first in those things!

New litterbox! Oh boy oh boy!!!
