Wow, 2009 was a long time ago! My parents weren’t even born yet! But Sparkle was around, so let’s see what she was doing. As you can see, she was a big fan of boxes.
Then, as now, boxes didn’t stay very long around here, and they went into recycling pretty quickly.
Back in 2009, Sparkle was only posting about her goings-on once a month, plus writing an advice column and a book review. You may want to check out her original post because she has lots of good tips on cheap cat toys! In spite of being a “fancy” cat, she actually knew how to have fun on a budget.
Here she is, playing with the cheapest toy of all — a Q-Tip! Don’t worry, this is a clean one, not one dug out of the trash.
This cat in a bag cat toy was a cast off from a friend. Can you tell how not-impressed Sparkle was? When my human turned it on, it actually scared Binga!
When she wasn’t playing, or criticizing bad cat toys, Sparkle spent a lot of time in the office. I can’t believe how neat and uncluttered it looks! My human has some work to do.
The window ledges in the dining room are very narrow, but Sparkle was almost small enough to make them work for her. She’s the only cat who could get fresh air and a nice view of our front yard at the same time.
