My Happy Cat Show Day
SparkleCat - Featuring Summer, Therapy Cat and Kitty on the Go

Every cat show is different, and this one was extra fun! The place where the show is held is really close to my house, and I’ve been here so often it almost feels like a second home. I just did a couple of dress changes, but several necklace changes! I got to visit with lots of people! And there were quite a few kids at the show. Some of them were pretty unruly, but they were nice when they came by to visit me. My human and I both really enjoyed ourselves. And since it was just a one day show, my human had time on Sunday to edit together a video. So you can see how things went below. &nb ..read more

Funny Sunday Bloopers
SparkleCat - Featuring Summer, Therapy Cat and Kitty on the Go

I sure had a lot of crazy outtakes to choose from for this week’s funny bloopers! I’m not sure I’d get any kisses with that face. Before she decided to use my checkerboard sofa for my blog post about kneading, we tried a few different things for the photos. One was this purple velvet blanket. But she wasn’t happy with the quality of my happy paws, so we switched it out. Things went pretty well when we started using the sofa…except for this unfortunate head shake that made my ears go wonky. These ears aren’t wonky…they’re in full-blown airplane mode! I think the construction workers next ..read more

Getting Ready for Another Fun Cat Show!

Can you believe it’s only been a few days since the last cat show and it’s already time for another one! This time, it’s a lot closer to home. It’s in Glendale, so it’s a very short drive, and no suitcase this time. But I still need to pick out some things to wear. The weather is going to be mild and the cat show hall is heated, so I’ll be dressing a lot lighter. And so many people loved my tricks that we’re going to focus more on that. My human says my bell ringing needs some improvement, so we are going to practice a little ahead of time. This time I’m only wearing dresses, no sweaters ..read more

Posing With My Latest Modeling Gig

Remember my pro modeling gig from a few weeks ago? I just got the item with the photos! It’s part of Ellen DeGeneres’ Paws Up Club subscription box for cats and the humans that love them. I thought the photos would just be for social media and their website, but they’re also in the Paws Up Cats mini-magazine enclosed in the February box. Anybody look familiar here? My human was so excited to open up the little magazine and see photos of me! The photographer used my paws in a number of photos. So I guess this technically makes me the cat version of a hand model. I got the gig after doing ..read more

Fun Facts About Why We Cats Knead
SparkleCat - Featuring Summer, Therapy Cat and Kitty on the Go

5d ago
Call it what you want — kneading, making biscuits, smurgling, or my human’s favorite, happy paws — it’s an activity that’s familiar to nearly all humans with cats. But have you ever wondered why cats do this? Most people assume that this rhythmic paw stretching and kneading came from kittenhood memories of nursing. But while no scientific studies have been made about it, the truth seems to be a little more complex. Another way to mark scent Cats have sweat glands in their paw pads, but did you know that they also have glands between their toes? These glands secrete a scent that wi ..read more

Where We Stayed For My Show Weekend

Instead of staying in a hotel for our trip to Victorville, my human and I did something different, and better! Her boyfriend has a getaway house in the desert that’s about halfway between our home and Victorville, so we stayed there instead! It was awesome! I had a whole house to explore instead of a small hotel room. Her boyfriend got some groceries, but they really didn’t use the kitchen much for this trip. They didn’t use this bathtub either. (There was a shower in the other bathroom.) But it was huge! After a long day at the cat show, I got to zoom around the house and jump on every h ..read more

Tongue Out Photo Flubs

Rarely have my weekly outtakes had such an obvious theme! There wasn’t even a question about which photos to use — the ones with my tongue out were paws-down the best. Here’s my critique of the peach kitty’s thoughts about my Valentine dress. Maybe I was sticking out my tongue in my human’s direction because she set out my cat show wardrobe and did not include any accessories! Fortunately, she remembered to pack a few before we left. My human needed to get a photo of me rubbing against her hand for a blog post. The only problem was, she had just put on some hand cream so her hands di ..read more

Treat Date With the Peach Kitty

My treat time with the peach kitty worked out way better than my Valentine’s Day date. This time I didn’t get dressed up. I guess he likes things casual. To be honest, I think he’s kind of weird! But he’s very nice, and very gentle for an outdoor cat. You can see in the video below.   Here are some of my other get togethers with the peach kitty: The Peach Kitty Tries the New Trader Joe’s Treats Adventures With the Peach Kitty A Visit From the Peach Kitty The post Treat Date With the Peach Kitty appeared first on Summer’s Fabulous Cat Life ..read more

It’s Time for Another Cat Show!

I’ve got a cat show this weekend! And it’s in a city I’ve never been to, and I haven’t done a celebrity appearance for this organization in several years either. I think the last time was this one. This show is in Victorville, at the fairgrounds there, and I’ve got some wardrobe to bring! I’m trying to bring outfits I don’t wear often. I’m not sure I’ve even worn this sweater at a show. I know I brought it once, but I don’t remember if I got around to it. It’s going to be cold in Victorville, and fairground buildings aren’t usually heated, so I’m bringing this puffy pink jacket.

The Right Way to Pet a Cat, According to Cats Themselves
SparkleCat - Featuring Summer, Therapy Cat and Kitty on the Go
by Summer Samba

A lot of people think we cats are unpredictable when it comes to petting. It seems like we enjoy it sometimes, and other times we don’t want it at all. Or we will accept it for a few minutes and then take a swipe at you. Or we run away when you try to pick us up. Do cats even like to be petted? Of course cats enjoy being petted…as long as the human is doing it the right way. And if you want to pet a cat, and have it be a mutually beneficial experience, there is a learning curve. But it’s not that complicated, and once you figure it out, it becomes instinctual. So let me show you how. Here’s ..read more
