Did you think that was me? Actually it’s Sparkle from January, 2006. She was about 3-1/2 years old, just a little older than me, in this photo. My human loves this photo because there is a little star highlight in her eye.
Here is a close-up so you can get a good look.
Although Sparkle led a very different life from mine, some things were the same. While she didn’t have a whole repertoire of tricks, she did learn how to sit up. Nearly every cat that’s lived with my human has learned to do at least that.
Binga, of course, had to sit up too.
As you can see, Binga hasn’t changed much in the past 11 or so years. Sparkle couldn’t figure her out either.
One thing Sparkle had to do that I didn’t was pose with items to be sold on eBay. That included a bunch of Teddy bears. A friend of my human’s was moving to New York and gave her a big box of them to sell. Sparkle wasn’t fond of posing with them. I don’t know why. I think I would have really, really liked helping my human sell the bears on eBay!
Occasionally she wanted to test the merchandise. See? It wasn’t all bad.
I hope you enjoyed this Caturday Flashback! If you want to see the original post, here it is. The photos were much smaller back then!
