THE SPARKY REPORT #25

SPARKY'S NEW TOY

What is it with cats and boxes? You can buy all the expensive toys in the world, and your cat will still find more entertainment in an empty box. And so it is with Sparky. She loves boxes of any size or shape. Like the adorable YouTube cat Maru, famous for his love of boxes, Sparky cherishes her own beat-up boxes. They provide hours of entertainment, and like Maru, Sparky is especially fond of open-ended boxes because it's so fun to jet into the front of the box and exit through the back.

Sparky thinks she is invisible when she's in her boxes, but the dogs (the curs!) seem to be able to see her anyway, thus spoiling any chance for Sparky to ambush them unawares. Still, she does her best, and isn't the least bit intimidated when they tower over her, full of curiosity.

While Kyanne, my Doberman, is content to poke Sparky with her nose, Shona, my Boxer, really gets into the act and likes to push the box (with cat) around the kitchen floor. Tomorrow I will be going to Costco, and I'll be sure to bring home some big boxes for Sparky to play in!

  1. I’ve discovered a variation on the box game – my cats really enjoy shredding any packing paper left in a box. Seems to make playing in boxes even more fun!
    Great pictures (as usual). And in case I’ve never mentioned it, your dogs are also beautiful!

  11. Donna, no paper is safe around Sparky. Like your own cats, she loves to shred it. She generally leaves the paper on my desk alone, but if she finds paper on the floor, she’s all over it! that must be one reason why she loves to nap in the wastepaper basket under my desk. *g*
    Thank you for the compliment on my dogs. *beam* Like Sparky, they are an integral part of my family, and like Sparky, they are rescues. Kyanne weighs 75 pounds and Shona 65, but despite their size, little 6 pound Sparky rules the roost!

  16. It is so obvious those dogs love Miss Sparky. These photos are wonderful !
    Miss Rebecca Marie, in addition to sleeping in my bed, also has a number of very nice, expensive cat beds all over the house. Her preferred sleeping spot? A box in the hall closet! And she loves to pop out of the box at odd moments when I am walking down the hall!
    She loves to tip boxes over, but has no interest in their contents. She knocks them over and then walks away.
    My paper shredder is Vito, a long-haired chihuahua/terrier cross. No scrap of paper is safe in his presence.

  21. LOL, Sonya! Indeed, yes, the likening of cats to three-year-old children is so appropo. I can remember how much fun it was to play in boxes when I was a kid. Then, of course, I grew up and became “sensible.” *g*

    I’m still laughing at Shona pushing Sparky around the floor, in her box. How funny is that!

  31. Hi, Louisa. Oh, yes, the dogs do enjoy playing with Sparky. She’s far more of a challenge than all the doggy toys you see lying about in the background, neglected.
    Vito is your paper shredder and Sparky is mine. I’m currently updating my recipe book (a 3-ring binder) and after searching everywhere for one of my recipes, I discovered it on the floor, sporting kitty teeth marks. Guess I’ll have to retype it!
    And oh, I so identify with Miss Rebecca Marie jumping out at you from her box in the closet! Sparky has a high-perch stool in the kitchen that I placed there for the express purpose of allowing her a legal place to sit and watch me putter around (as opposed to sitting on the counter–a no-no). Every time I pass that stool, Sparky just *has* to reach out and pat me.
    What would we ever do without our precious pets? Die of boredom, likely!

  36. Theo, I do have a camcorder. It’s packed away in a box and in storage, so it’s not readily accessible. I’m having ongoing house repairs/remodeling so much of my life is packed away in boxes, and will continue to be so for the rest of this year, if not longer.
    But yes, definitely, when all this construction is eventually finished, I should dig out that camcorder and capture Sparky’s more amusing incidents. And like you, I just adore Maru!

  41. I love The Sparky Report and I confess I read it before the other posts. Please say Sparky will be publishing her ‘memwahs’ soon; I think this will make an adorable e-book and offer cat lovers hours of fun and lots of ideas for their adventurous cats.

  46. Hi, Fiona! Wow–I’m flattered! I’m so glad you enjoy the Sparky Reports. As I’ve often said, I never lack for material. Sparky generates more news than I can pack into a weekly update.
    And you know, now and then I’ve actually considered doing a fun Sparky e-book. I certainly have enough photos for a book. Right now, I’ve got over 500 (or maybe it’s 600 now) pictures of Sparky, and have discarded probably that many more! Maybe one day . . .
    In the meantime, thank you for your kind words. I shall pass them on to Sparky, who at this very moment is sprawled between my knees, lying on her back as I’m stretched out on the recliner. *g*

  51. I suggested an e-book because the number of colour photos does not matter, nor the (possibly endless?) number of pages? I am the biodographer for a rescued dog called Champ, who has recently become a Pawthor, with his own published e-book ‘memwah,’ Champ: My Story of Survival (on Amazon). Champ has a blog and he loves interviewing interesting animals – if Sparky could sit still for a few moments, maybe she would like to be interviewed as the cat that inspires a two-legged Pawthor? I would love it! And so would Champ. fiona.ingram@telkomsa.net

  56. Mary Jo, I still think of Sparky as a kitten, but you’re right–she is definitely a big girl now. In attitude, however, I suspect she’ll be a kitten all her life. *g* She has far too much of the Kitten Gene left in her, while the Grown-up Cat Gene seems stuck in adolescence. The dogs had better beware! LOL!

  61. BioDOGraphy? PAWthor? Memwah? I love it! LOL! Fiona, I just visited your Web site and read about Champ’s story. How wonderful that you did this book! Champ reminded me very much of a dog rescued by Eldad Hagar, whose YouTube videos of his many rescues of stray and abandoned dogs are so heartwarming. He does rescues for different rescue organizations inspiring.
    I’m certain Sparky would be able to sit still long enough for an interview! In fact, I mentioned it to her and she got all excited. Like all cats, Sparky is something of a prima donna and likes to be the center of attention. *g* I’ll e-mail you privately regarding details.

  64. BioDOGraphy? PAWthor? Memwah? I love it! LOL! Fiona, I just visited your Web site and read about Champ’s story. How wonderful that you did this book! Champ reminded me very much of a dog rescued by Eldad Hagar, whose YouTube videos of his many rescues of stray and abandoned dogs are so heartwarming. He does rescues for different rescue organizations inspiring.

  66. I had to do something besides crying my eyes out every time I went onto Facebook and read about yet another abandoned/abused pooch. I love Eldad’s videos – that man is a saint! People love Champ and now that he reviews books by other Pawthors and interviews famous animals, I am running to keep up. Champ is busy with another book entitled Champ & Joe: Best Friends forever, about his blind friend Joe – happy ending for Joe with fabulous doggy day care owners so he plays all day with friends. Champ is also compiling Champ’s Book of Short Stories for Children. When I can get to my own work, I am busy with The Poppy Project, about Poppy the famous Fijian dog who had reconstructive surgery after her snout got chopped off. I saw it on Bondi Vet/Animal Planet (isn’t that Dr. Chris Brown gorgeous) and contacted Animals Fiji. The rest will be history as we are nearing completion. All proceeds go to the animal sites. (I am exhausted, needless to say…). I love cats so am dying to earn more about Sparky as well.

  71. Ahhhhh, Fiona, we are sisters of the heart. I’m very much into the rescue scene. I was a volunteer dog walker and cat cuddler for the local humane society until an injury forced me to retire two years ago. However, for the past umpteen 40 years all my dogs and cats have been rescues. I also greatly enjoy all the Animal Planet programs and anything to do with animal behavior. And I totally agree with you that Eldad Hagar is a saint.
    I think it’s great that Champ now reviews books and that he has another book of his own in the works. It sounds like your animal projects/children’s books are keeping you very busy! Definitely for a worthy cause.

  76. You might be amused to read the children’s book ‘My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes’ which is a great favourite of my grandchildren. It goes along these lines:-
    My cat likes to hide in boxes.
    The cat from France likes to sing and dance, but
    My cat likes to hide in boxes.
    The cat from Spain flies an aeroplane
    The cat from France likes to sing and dance, but
    My cat likes to hide in boxes
    You get the picture 🙂

  81. Cyn, thanks so much for telling me about the children’s book, My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes. It sounds like a delightful book, and one that I feel certain Sparky would identify with! In fact, it could have been written with her in mind. (On the other hand, I’ve never known a cat that *didn’t* like boxes! LOL!)
