    Since I am usually pretty obliging when it comes to wearing stuff, my human wanted to put some Mardi Gras beads on me last week. Note that there was no Mardi Gras post last week because what she found were not Mardi Gras beads!

    I didnt want to embarrass myself, or my human for that matter. So I refused to post these photos on schedule.

    Still, she persisted. She even made me sit up for more photos.

    I was totally patient with her.

    At least for a while. Now somebody needs to tell her the partys been...

  • Human Things… and Their Feline Equivalent: Litter Boxes

    Now, here is something that totally mystifies me: humans go to the pet store and bring home cheap plastic boxes and whatever cat litter is on sale and expect us to be satisfied with that (and usually, we are). But when it comes to their own needs, they have these elaborate porcelain palaces that rinse themselves out with every single use! Isnt that a little bit obsessive?

    We cats dont need anything fancy to relieve ourselves. In fact, when I went to the LA Feline Film Festival last September,...

    My friends Lola and Lexi did this on their blog, and I enjoyed it so much, I thought I would do it on mine make sure you read the last one!

    1. Although we are the same breed, and in fact came from the same breeder, Sparkle and I are not closely related. You would have to go very far back in our gene pool to find common ancestors.

    2. In addition to cantaloupe, I also like broccoli.

    3. I took to both the harness and the leash right away. In fact, I will wear almost anything without complaint if I...

  • Interview With Crepes, Movie Star, Blogger and Author!

    from Sparkle the Designer Cat

    Monday February 23rd, 2015 at 12:10 AM

    Nearly every month for the next year, I will be featuring one of the feline authors from the Rescued anthology. This month, I am proud to be interviewing Crepes, blogger at Cat In The Fridge, one of the stars of the CATastrophes series, and rescue cat. Crepes is a great storyteller, and her journey from an inbred feral colony to international stardom and glamour is one of the most colorful in the book.

    As you know, every author has chosen an animal rescue to benefit from Rescueds proceeds....

    Ive been learning a couple of fun tricks I can stay and do a high five! I thought that was pretty great until I saw Kaiser the Bengal cats video. He knows his right from his left paw, stays when his human walks far away from him (Im still learning that), and thats just the beginning! He climbs ladders, spins (clockwise and counter-clockwise), rolls barrels and a ton more! Im kind of glad my human only plans to teach me a few things because I dont know if I want to work that hard! See for...

  • The Caturday Report: All Blogger Edition

    from Sparkle the Designer Cat

    Saturday February 21st, 2015 at 12:10 AM

    This week is a first for the Caturday Report there were so many great posts by my blogging pals that I decided to use them all in lieu of stories from the bigger or more traditional outlets!

    What can I say? Excellence cannot be denied.

    The Paws For Reflection blog has a great post about hypothermia and frostbite in cats, which is very important considering how brutal this winter has been for so many parts of the U.S. The Playful Kitty blog looked at a different kind of storm domestic violence...
  • Walking Your CAT Day!

    According to my editorial calendar, Sunday, February 22 is Walking the Cat Day. I was confused by this, since I couldnt find any reference to it anywhere online. Finally, my human remembered: February 22 is actually Walking the DOG Day, but she felt that was unfair, so she marked it down as Walking the Cat Day. So yeah, I went out for a walk a couple of days early. But first we had to stop at the pet store and do some shopping. My human said I did not need a litter box this big. I disagree...
