So I suppose you are wondering how my human did with her library talk last night. She managed to pull it off! There were a lot of humans there and she was able to talk for a whole hour without sounding like an idiot (well, except for the part where she couldn’t get the video of Binga jumping through hoops to work).
She even put together some slides. She used Keynote, so it was not as complicated as it looked. In fact, she really did not know what she was doing — she only downloaded the software two days ago.
She listed some important facts for humans to know. I insisted on her adding in the last part about “manhandling.”
She even brought some of my favorite toys as samples of what humans need to get their cats. Some guy tried to buy a couple from her! But she told him he had to go to a store.
Talk about manhandling! My toys came back with a bunch of unfamiliar smells. I will have to rub myself all over them again. I think I will start with the Tickle Pickle.

Allie: Well, of *course* she did well, she was talking about YOU! Humans would always succeed in life if they only followed our lead.
FaRADaY: But the toys – seriously? Weird smells? Time for her to buy you new ones! MORE WAND TOYZ!!!

Sparkle, never underestimate those clever humans. We loved the presentation!
Yeah, Mommeh!! That must have been scary to get up there and talk in front of all those people! I am very impressed with that. It’s a good thing you sent your pickle and some of your toys with her to keep her company. 🙂
Create With Joy says
What?! Your human let strangers TOUCH your toys? OH NO!!!!!
Other than that, it sounds like the talk was fab! We approve of the slides too!

Well, we’re glad your human had a good library talk experience….and hopefully she was able to explain in human terms just what we EXPECT from our humanly companions in the way of care, treats, food, treats, and treats…..ahem….It’s a shame you’ll have to work on getting those foreign smells off your toys but it WAS very nice of you to share them with your human for demonstration purposes!

We’re glad the talk went well!!!! Thank goodness she didn’t sell your toys 😉
Cathy Keisha says
She’s lucky you even looked at those toys with different smells.
Laura & Taffy says
Well, Sparkle, look at it this way; she could have taken YOU to her human show-and-tell. Then you would have strange smells! That would violate both rules #3 AND #4. We’re glad her talk went well, not surprised one bit. *wave*
The Island Cats says
We’re glad to hear your human’s talk went well, Sparkle, but she should have been more careful with your toys and not let them get stinky human smells on them.
Fraidy Cats says
We’re glad your human’s talk went well, Sparkle. We were pretty sure all would be good what with your snoopervision 🙂 whew! glad your toys weren’t sold out from under you – have fun gettin your smells all over them again!

It sounds like without you, your hooman would have been lost!
Eric and Flynn says
We are glad the talk went well. We are not so sure about your toys coming home with strange smells on them, but at least she didn’t sell them.

Glogirly & Katie says
WOW….her slides look great! I’m sure you had a paw in them. …love the manhandling comment. …and I can’t believe some guy wanted to buy YOUR toys. That’s a little whackadoo. hehe! Now go get busy smelling them up all over again.
: ) Katie
We knew your human would do a great job since she was talking about cats! It’s too bad you have to re-smell up your toys though. We LOVED the video of Binga! Bravo Binga!
Toby & Leia says
Your input was essential to her success, we know. We loved the Binga hoops. Where did you get that, anyway?
My human got a styrofoam hoop from Michaels! Binga is so desperate for treats she learned it right away.
Little One says
I knew that your human would do a great job since you helped her with your coaching!!!
We knew your human would do good too! But we didn’t know about those strange smells on your toys!
So long as those new smells weren’t CAT smells. I’d hate to share my toys. I’m glad things went well for her though. I hate it when I have to make the Woman feel better
Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) says
We apologize iffen this is stoopid,but did she talk kitty-talk when she was there? Rumor has it (around here) that Beings speak different among themselfs! Well, we wouldn’t know…
Caren Gittleman says
Sparkle we had no doubt that your human’s library talk would be a sensational “WIN!” No doubt at all! Glad you verified what we already thought!
But…I think your Mom should have picked up NEW toys to display! How dare she bring the scents of strangers home and have them taint your toys no less?
They will never learn…
Random Felines says
sounds like a good time was had by all – except for the toys…. MOL
Terrible thing to have your toys manhandled, but putting your smells on your toys again sounds like a fun job, lovely Sparkle :)…You have a cool Mommy to incorporate your suggestions and try to educate humans about kitties…Happy Friday the 13th and have a fun weekend, sweet friends…xoxo…Calle, Halle, Sukki
We’re glad your mom’s talk was successful! Next time maybe she’ll just have *representative* toys to show them! (No use wasting good nap time having to recondition yours!)
Hannah and Lucy says
How awful to have strange smells on your toys – we thought your Mom was just going to show everyone what toys you have not pass them round to let them play with them. We hope she is going to compensate you for the strange whiffs!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) says
Well of course, the talk was a success – after all you were the subject, how could it not be?
Noir the Texas Tabby says
WOW–your human talked for a WHOLE hour?? They can do that? Hmm. Well, since your human was talking about YOU and kitties–I’m surprised she didn’t go for two. Glad you got your toys back. 🙂
We are so glad that the talk went well. Not fair for the toys to come home with a different smell but at least she didn’t sell them. Yikes. Hope all of you have a great day. Take care.
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Glad your Mommy’s talk went well!!! Hope it doesn’t take to long to get your toys in order again! Have a great weekend!
Fuzzy Tales says
We’re glad your human’s talk went well…except for the strange smells she brought home. Definitely get her to replace those toys!
d'ArtagnanRumblepurr (@rumblepurr) says
She should get you some new toys and some tuna as a reward for letting her use you in her show!
Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says
Unfamiliar smells on the toys? Well, give them a good once over and then be sure to fur them up with your own furs again! Congratulations to your mom on her talk!
