Sparky died on November 29, 2022 during the night. He was a sweet cat. He was sixteen and a half years old. We loved him lots. He used to chew on my hair and he used to sleep under the covers with me. We got him at the Pet Shelter in Taos in 2006. He only weighed less than 10 pounds when he died. He's been eating less and less over the last several months. He will be missed.
Here are some things I wrote for him over the years, as if he was writing them
Hello, I'm Sparky! I was born May or June of 2006. My pets got me at the Stray Hearts animal shelter in Taos in March of 2007. Below is some stuff I've written; newest at the top.
July 2020: I'm now 14 years old. I play sometimes and sleep most of the time. I sleep on one or the other of my pets' rooms. Sometimes when it's too hot I sleep in the back porch. Sometimes I play with Pumpkin. Sometimes he chases me and sometimes I chase him. Sometimes one of our pets gives us toys to play with that smell and taste really good. I heard they have something called catnip in or on them. I like it. I hope we get some more of that soon. I've been really wanting to go outdoors lately but our pets won't let us any more.
July 2019: I just had my 13th birthday. Yeah, I still sleep a lot. Although lately I've been getting the urge to go outdoors, particularly in the evening. I escape outside occasionally but then my pets come find me and bring me back inside. I'd rather they let me stay outside for a while, but I also realize they want me to be safe.
March 2019: I haven't written anything for quite a while, I know. Life is still good. I mostly sleep on Linda's or Bert's bed these days. Our pets don't let us outdoors any more. Pumpkin and I are indoor cats now.
June 2016: Shakti seems to have disappeared. I don't know where she is. I keep looking around. I can't find her. I even looked around outside. My pet says to click below to read her obituary, whatever that is.
I sleep a lot. Life is good.
March 2016: I'm a pretty large cat. The last time my pet weighed me I weighed like 18 pounds. Yes, I'm a big cat. I will be 10 this year; mostly I hang out on my pet Bert's bed. Sometimes I even sleep on my pet Linda's bed.
They had a stranger in here the other day. I made myself scarce. I don't like strangers. He was a friend of my pets, but not a friend of mine. One of my favorite things is eating the grass that my pets grow for us cats. Well, another favorite thing lately is eating Shakti's canned cat food when she doesn't eat it all. Sometimes I still play with Pumpkin.
I'm still afraid of plastic bags. I run for it when I see one or hear one crackling.
I very, very seldom go outside. I don't really like it out there. Sometimes I'll sneak out in the back enclosed area when my pets clean our kitty litter. I like it out there, but I still don't stay out there long. I can open the back door by myself, so I come in again when I'm ready. It's mainly a good life.
October 2013: There were some kittens in here briefly from about June or July until this month. I pretty much ignored them. Pumpkin talks about them more below.
September 2014: Did I ever mention I'm afraid of the noise of plastic bags being shaken? Well I am. Just freaks me out. My male pet shook a plastic bag just yesterday and I ran out of the room! What's up with that? Sometimes my pets forget I'm afraid of plastic bags.
January 2013: I've got a new friend to terrorize. The kitten below. It's fun! I chase him around some but mostly right now I avoid him. He's taken up some of my places. Hope we start to get along soon!
September 2012: There are still the four of us in our little home in among the sagebrush, including the humans. We are all healthy and I still like to run around a lot. Our pets grow wheat grass for us to eat but I still like to sneak out sometimes to eat the grass outside. There's not much but there's enough for me!
May 19, 2012: All is still well at our home. We briefly had another cat here but she has gone back to her original home again. We like it better without her. She was really noisy at night.
October 2010: We moved into a new place out by the extinct volcano "Two Peaks" last month. We're living in a travel trailer and hope the little house will be built soon so we can run around more.
September 2008: Things are quite good here. I get good dry food which I am used to and lots of water and toys to play with. Also, Shakti and I are getting along better and I don't jump on her much any more.
May 2007: I'm enjoying my new home more and more and me and Shakti get along just fine. Sometimes I get this urge to jump on her, she doesn't like it much, but it's an urge I can't resist. Maybe I'll stop one day.
March 2007: I just arrived in this household and so far everything is just fine. My new pets adopted me from an animal shelter here in Taos. It's lots of fun being out of a cage! My new pet, Linda, loved me right away when she first saw me! My other pet, Bert, loves me too! My first day in my new home I ran back and forth many times. I loved running around and around my new home. What fun! Shakti and I are getting along better and better every day.
