Eons ago, Mr. Puddy tagged me in a meme, but I was so wrapped up in all my birthday festivities that I’ve only gotten around to doing it now! So here goes.
1. Do I think I am HOT?
What a silly question! What do you think?
2. Upload a picture or wallpaper I am using.
Since I’m a cat, I don’t do wallpaper (unless it’s the kind you can shred). But back when my human had a Helio Ocean device (“don’t call it a phone”), this was the background photo she used.
3. When was the last time I ate chicken?
Alas, it was on my birthday! I’ve had chicken-flavored cat food since then, but no actual chicken.
4. The song I listened to most recently?
Oh, you seriously don’t want to know. My human was a rock journalist back in the day, and her favorite music to cover was the loudest, most offensive hard and alternative rock you can possibly imagine. Definitely not family-friendly stuff! But she still subjects me to it periodically. If you are still curious and have not been warned away, this video from The Cows will probably scar you for life.
Maybe this is why the Fourth of July fireworks have not been bothering any of us!
5. What am I thinking while I am doing this?
What can I do to sell more Kindle copies of my book? Seriously, I think about that a lot.
6. Do I have nicknames?
I don’t, really, although my human is fond of picking me up against my will. Then, when I complain, she says (loudly), “Why do you hate me?” Sheesh.
I really like the last part that involves tagging eight blogging friends and answering questions about them, but I think pretty much everyone I know has done this meme already! Happy Fourth!
Mark's Mews says
You are so hot that if we printed yer picture it would BURN!
I am surprised you don’t have any nicknames. Alas, I have too many!
Sparkle you rock!
Admiral Hestorb says
loving your not unexpected answers, Sparkle. And I will say your comment to me today about head bonks got mom to laughing.
I think you are totally hot, Sparkle. I didn’t realize your book was available on Nook. Now I have to check it out.
Kuromi K. says
You were right sparkle that video was one of my worst experience right up there with the vet.
we love LUNA says
wow love your answers!You are awesome and very charming!
Cokie the Cat says
Wow. You actually stumped my mom. She’d never heard of the Cows, but we’re going to venture a guess that your mom has heard of my mom’s brother’s old band, The Mentors.
Great post, Sparkle.
Oh yeah, you bet she has heard of the Mentors! MOL. That’s another one that might possibly fry some ears.
Oh Sparkle you are a hottie! Nice to know you better.
Every dog in the world would envy you with that chicken. That has to make it twice as good.

Sparkle I so enjoyed learning more about you and your Mom!
Has your Mom ever heard of Jane Scott? With what your Mom did in a previous life she might have heard of her. Jane was dubbed at one time “America’s Oldest Teenager”….she was a music journalist for Ohio’s largest newspaper (The Plain Dealer) for forever!!! If your Mom never heard of her she should Google her……interesting stuff!
My Mom worked there too for 21 and a half years. My Mom’s Dad was a Political Cartoonist there for 30 yrs (Ray Osrin)…..
We also are friends with Michael Heaton (his sister is Patty Heaton from “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle”) at The Plain Dealer they used to call him “The Minister Of Culture”…..
I love learning fun stuff about my friends!
YOU are as hot as a firecracker on the Fourth of July and so it is!
Devoted to Willow says
Sparkle any music makes me purr and this beat made my tail wag up and down.I do not get why humans always want to pick us up do they not realize that this is rude to be lifted off the ground
Katnip Lounge says
SIZZLE!!! Sparkle, you are one hot tamale!
Incredibly, Mommy liked the video. Or maybe not so incredibly. She’s crazypants.
Fun reading about you, Sparkle. I think your bellah shot is hot. Purrs, pretty gurl.
Layla Morgan Wilde says
Sparkle, can you use your influence for political good and make personal firework illegal in New York? Even the Domino, the biggest feral mancat hid under the porch last like a mouse!
You don’t like to be picked up Sparkle? We didn’t know that about you! We hope you get more books sales too!
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
I think you are most independent Sparkle so this day is made for you
Hmm… I think that’s all a bit much to think about so maybe a nap would be good. Happy fourth.
The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie says
If Mom picks up Tamir he yowls like she’s killing him. She often wonders what the neighbors might think!!
Thanks for sharing those interesting facts!
Happy 4th of July!!

The Monkeys says
Of course you’re hot! Seriously, we’ve never met a cat that didn’t think they were…that’s why cats are so awesome.
We loved reading more about you, Sparkle!
Eric and Flynn says

The Island Cats says
That was great, Sparkle! We’ve been tagged a couple of times to do this meme, but our secretary (mom!) has been really lax in helping us put answers together. Sheesh!
Happy 4th of July!
Fui, Suey and Lishy says
Happy 4th of July, Sparkle 🙂
We are getting a kindle, we’ll have to have a look at your book!
Hannah and Lucy says
There seem to have been a lot of memes going round recently.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Oliver and Ruby says
We enjoyed reading abowt yoo Sparkle!
Avalon Lion says
@mikfoss: You don’t need a Kindle anymore to read Kindle books. You can now download the software for free on Amazon and read it on your computer, cell phone, etc.
Avalon Lion says
Happy 4th, Sparkle! The giveaway of your book on my site is having a lot of succes; let’s hope it’ll help you sell more Kindle books 🙂 I’ll go and add an Amazon link to my post to tell my readers they can get it on Kindle too… xoxo
We hate to be picked up too Sparkle. We don’t think our old lady assistant would enjoy that music so we didn’t listen to the video but thanks for the opportunity. Happy Fourth to all of you too. Hope it is a safe one.
Milo and Alfie says
A fun meme ~ we did it recently too. Happy 4th of July to yoo and all yoor family!
Sorry I don’t have a Kindle but I did buy your book for my Nook and love it!
The funny thing is, my second book is available on Nook, but not Kindle, while my first book is available on Kindle, but not yet on Nook! But I can only see hard stats on my Kindle sales.
Is your first book going to come out on Nook?
It’s supposed to be out on Nook already, but my human is a slacker.
Fuzzy Tales says
Don’t feel bad, Sparkle, we got tagged for a meme too, a few weeks ago, and the mom can’t remember who tagged us or even which meme. LOL.
Have a fun and safe 4th of July! Surely a holiday means extra food for you all, maybe real chicken?
Mr Puddy says
Ha..Ha.. I like the good thing of the music you has been listening : )
I think your human can get along so well with my dad. That’s a type of my dad favorite music too, and of course, Have to turn it loud till Max. Till the rest of family almost turn deaf. Finally he have to get the ear phone so the rest of family can have peace and he can enjoy his world.
Happy 4Th to you
