Janiss Garza is quite something. When I first saw her at Blog Paws I instantly thought; no way! She was warm, open and gregarious and she looked nothing like I had pictured her.(even with facebook profile shots). I really enjoyed meeting her, chatting and hearing about the levels of professionalism that she wanted her blog to be in and remain, after all, Sparkle had important things cat owners should know, in addition to cute photos and product reviews. She strove to be more, and she was.
When I read that she 'didn't come home' today I wept (as I'm sure a lot of you did too). I admired how she stated plainly that they don't believe in the rainbow bridge but she hoped she would continue on in our hearts. My heart burst with pride for her bravery in writing that.
So the other night I thought my big kids deserved some serious fun time. I found the KatNipLounge packages from BlogPaws (they had to be hidden since the smell would about knock over a self respecting human) and it wasn't moments before Ollie was crying and carrying on and following me around the house crying and... ALRIGHT! I will make you a sock bomb. (it's circled in red below) Ollie was sorta trippin out lookin all dejected after I kinda snapped at him for goin after the wee ones. I snuck it in under his butt. (he likes being scratched there and gets all droolie and bitey in a cute way)
Next thing you know...
Lookit his little upside down love heart. Ok, nevermind. I'm weird. But I loves my son and he got some good lazer action and upside down toofs showin too. I snorgled him to death, I did. I don't mind tellin ya, he can drool and purr all over me anyday.
The kittens loved them too but HOLY COD are they fast! In no time flat they each had a sock bomb and were flying around the living room like maniacs!
and then, three little mongrels kittens come live us for while (she says) and so today she's preparing for work, la de-frickin-da... WHEN
The scene begins:
**strange noises coming from the front hall area near the open front door
(oh fer cryin out loud you bunch of ...audience members;keep yer furs on! the screen is closed!)
Anyhow, as I was sayin'.
Woman comes running.
Now any self respecting (so called) cat-mom would have had the camera phone on video in a blink!
And therefore could have thrust onto the world stage the sight of a small, grey plush kitten
going backwards all around the place banging into everything and causing much hissing from grown up cats who had come to inspect the strange noises because
had her head
the empty tall tissue box
All I'm sayin'...
ALL I'M SAYIN
is that you KNOW if it had been the Ornj GOON or Cod forbid ME-- That little video woulda made the nightly news and we'd be sittin pretty for next years Pettie awards (PAWS DOWN) for that bit of film brilliance.
But no, sadly not.
And the offrontery continued when to drown out the appaws and laughter and adulation of all my fans I could still hear ringing in my lovely head... all I heard was
