Hair Cut Day

You all may have noticed that my hair was shorter in the pictures in my last post... Can you guess why? Oh boy, you're right! I got a haircut! Man, you guys are so smart...

Doesn't my face look handsome?

You know, the good thing about having my own humans give me a haircut is that they don't shave me naked! My hair can be shorter, I can look stylish, and I won't be naked all at once! Pretty cool, eh?

One of the best things about getting haircuts is getting the tummy rubs that come with them!
Hey, wait a minute, did you just post that picture?! Lizzy, just because I need your help with the blog doesn't mean you should take and post embarrassing pictures of me!


Okay everydog, I'm done with the haircut pictures... This is actually all I was going to post today, but when I first started this post I heard a noise at the window! My human Lizzy and I turned around to see White Cat (also known as Fatso) hoisting himself up though the window from the outside. Let me tell ya, this window is a whole 4 feet high, and White Cat had somehow managed to jump up and pull himself onto the window sill! Sure, cat's can normally jump that high all the time, but not White Cat. He's old and FAT. I was quite surprised he could do it!

As I started loading my first haircut picture, White Cat walked from the window sill to the printer, then jumped to the top of the computer desk, jumped down on the lower part of the desk, walked to the other side, stepped down onto the keyboard, and prepared to make the jump to the floor (while he did all this, his face wore a look of serious determination). I watched as he let himself drop down from the keyboard, a whole 2 feet from above the floor. Splat. The keyboard slipped and he landed on his face. He got right back up and walked strait to the kitchen, still carrying his seriously determined look with him.

I turned back to the computer, and started loading the next picture. Then I head this noise... rip, rip, tear, riiiip. My human Lizzy and I got up and ran to the kitchen, to find White Cat, who had somehow managed to get himself up on the kitchen counter, and was tearing into a big package of meat that was set out to thaw (Lizzy's a vegetarian, but the rest of the family enjoys a meal of meat now and then). Lizzy shooed White Cat away, and came back to help me with my blog.

We started loading the next picture, when we heard a crash. Lizzy and I got up again and ran to the kitchen, to find White Cat had gotten back up on the counter and had knocked over the meat and the plate it was resting on, and he had torn a hole in the package so he could eat the meat inside. Lizzy shooed him away again, put the meat back on the plate, and put a big bowl over top.

Just as we starting typing on my blog again, can you guess what we heard? CRASH. Lizzy got up and ran to the kitchen again, this time to find White Cat had knocked the big bowl right off the plate, picked up the giant package of meat (he may be fat, but he's stronger than you think), and he took off running as fast as he could over the counter top away from Lizzy. Let me tell ya, he may have been doing a very naughty thing, but to watch a fat clumsy cat with a package of meat twice the size of his head being carried in his mouth, with a seriously determined look in his eyes, running as fast as he can across the counter top while he realizes he's running out of room to run, and being chased by a furious Lizzy, is indeed a hilarious sight. Of course, Lizzy caught him, got the meat back and put it away again.

Five minutes later. We're back at my blog, and haven't heard a single noise in the kitchen for a while. Lizzy, wondering why White Cat's so quiet now, gets up and walks back to the kitchen. This is what she finds on the floor.


After all that work White Cat has been doing today, he's pooped. (Lizzy's note: I couldn't help but notice a resemblance between this picture and a certain one of the shots of Sparky getting his haircut!)

Oh, goodness, we're even later than you are on Happy Canada Day.

But we're on time for happy Independence Day!

You look really handsome with that haircut. We can see your face.

That's a funny story about White Cat. Sounds like fun. We'll have to try it sometime. If Jan ever lays out a pack of meat. She's not vegetarian. But her cooking skills run to mostly cold sandwiches.

River said...

Hi Sparky! Happy 4th to you. Nice haircut--just right, not too naked. So funny about the White Cat. Sounds like something a dog would do too! Stay safe. Hope the fireworks don't bother you.

love & wags,
River

Jemma said...

Oh no, Sparky, White Cat sounds like a troublemaker as much as Mango is! What ever are we going to do with these cats?

BTW, I JUST realized that you're in BC, too! For some reason, I always thought you were either in the east coast or in the US.

Charlie said...

I like your haircut, Sparky. That White Cat's a real troublemaker, isn't he?!

Yes, Sparky, you do look great, and I love the idea that you don't have to go to a strange place to be groomed. You are lucky.

You are so handsome with your new haircut. Cats can be the most surprising creatures sometimes. Who would have thought White Cat would get that inspired.

Your new haircut looks great. I can't believe the nerve and persistence of that white cat!

Tatum Tot said...

LOL ooo funny! White cat is weird. we have a blackcat here, and I want to chase her but the Mum says I can't.

I don't get haircuts 'cause my hair is always short! I'm a wash-n-go collie!

Toffee said...

You are handsome with or without that extra fur that your hooman cut off...hey! where can I get one of those red squares for my brother's mouth??

tee hee..
toffee

pee-ess my white kitty also lays on her back like yours does.

Amici said...

Your haircut is stylin. :) We especially like that you have your own hair stylist- Lizzy. Man, your human lady can do EVERYTHING.

Very cute story about your white cat. The cat sure did want that meat, huh. At supper time did he get a little piece once it was all cooked up? Hope so after all of that work.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Sparky! Your eyes now glow with such happiness! I totally see the handsomeness all over your face! I wish my human would learn to groom me instead of taking to me the place that shaves me...

By the way...can you smell the waffles? The syrup? The human is making some waffles...they are cooking as I dictate right now...

I need to find a way to mail you some waffles...

Hope you had a good weekend!

Slurp!

Wow! White Cat is wild. Wish I could jump like that. Your haircut looks good and you're lucky to get your hair cut at home.

hi Sparky, you look pawtastic with your haircut. we like the belly rubs we get when our human cuts our hairs too.

your Fat Cat is a pretty funny cat. he is determined when there is a hunk of meat around. that made us laugh. Fat Cat like belly rubs too?

woofs.

happy said...

That's a nice haircut, Sparky! Looks like somebody is too lazy to go outside to hunt for his own dinner, eh?

Snowball said...

Jie jie says you are being so good when you get groomed. I never made it easy for jie jie to trim the fur on my belly. How could you expect a princess to be laying like that and risk having her pictures taken and showed on her own blog to the whole world?

That fat cat can really jump. He looks very comfortable sleeping with all his 4 legs in the air.

Luv
Snowball
