If you recall, last week, my human found this paper with a bunch of Post-It Notes attached to it, and it turned out they were long lost blog post ideas from Sparkle. There were so many that I only shared half of them in my original blog post. This week I share more lost blog post ideas with you! Sparkle’s mind was always working.
1. Weapons of slash destruction
It’s pretty clear that Sparkle was referring to our finely honed claws here. What’s really mystifying is why my human randomly wrote down an appointment date on this Post-It Note. Plus a person’s name who she does not remember at all.
2. Cat Rule #275 — if there is a sunbeam on an unmade bed, said bed cannot be made until the sunbeam moves to another area of the room
At the time that Sparkle passed away, she was working on a book of her cat rules, so I imagine there are cat rules scribbled down in a variety of places. This one is a goodie, and I bet it would had made it into the book. I’d put together my own book of cat rules… but I don’t think I have as many as Sparkle did.
3. Towel of capitulation
I confess — I had no idea what this one meant! After doing a bit of research, I think it may have had something to do with this blog post.
4. Kitty Death Penalty, i.e., “You are dead to me now.”
There are certain kitties — and Sparkle was certainly one — that have a special talent for meting out the Kitty Death Penalty. And I gather my human often got this treatment from her too.
5. Looking for trouble/ being trouble
I get the feeling that Sparkle was going to write a post about the difference between looking for trouble and actually being trouble. I’m pretty sure Binga was the inspiration for that one.
See what I mean?
And now we have the last Post-It Note, and I think it was for a card for the Zazzle shop:
6. Stop and enjoy the sunbeams
It’s a sentiment that I think we all need to remember! I may take that one and make a card of it myself. The 150×150 part? I think that used to be the standard size for Facebook profile photos (it’s larger now).
I hope you enjoyed these long-lost notes from Sparkle!
