It's been a few weeks since the last Sparky Report, and a lot has happened since then. Sparky is now officially an indoor/outdoor cat. Despite my diligence, she frequently escaped out the door, and when her escape attempts were foiled, she made everyone's life so miserable that I threw in the towel. Now that the weather is nice, she uses the cat door at will and we've settled into a routine of sorts, with frequent yard checks by me just to make sure all is well.
I have a little over 3 acres, so there's plenty of room to explore and practice hunting. And speaking of hunting . . .
Sparky has graduated from earthworms to shrews. She is slowly ridding my yard of those tiny critters, but I do wish she wouldn't bring their bodies into the house for me to stumble upon in my bare feet!
You'd think Sparky would burn off some of her high octane energy outside, but not so. True to form, she is constantly on the lookout for trouble.
And here is the result of Sparky playing in a bucket of potting soil I'd been using to repot some house plants.
