In the abvove photo, Sparky looks mature and even a little bit bored. It's a ruse. Beneath that gleaming coat and polished exterior lies the heart of a Master Manipulator. Have you ever seen a puppy cock his head one way, then the other, when you talk to him? Well, Miss Sparky Tabasco has been taking lessons on the art of head tilting from Shona, one of my dogs. Shona is a Boxer, so in typical Boxer fashion, she turns herself inside out with joy if you so much as glance her way, and if you should deign to talk to her, she goes into an ecstacy of head tilts. Sparky's been taking notes.
So how do you think Sparky is doing in the head tilt department? I think she's got it down pat. But it's possible her eyesight may be to blame. Or not. Hard to tell. But I do wonder if Sparky's crossed eyes may contribute to her head tilting, like maybe she's trying to focus. Regardless, it's just one more trait that makes Sparky one of the most entertaining cats I've ever had the fortune to own.
