About Me

Active within 884 Days

Hi! My name is ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸Spartagus- ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸

I am an American Shorthair from Easthampton, MA

Nicknames: Sparty, Spooky-Boo

Age: 8 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Sparty is quite the inquisitive cat. Somehow, he learned how to open doors. He has also learned to "nose-touch" which is when he stands up on his feet and rubs his nose on my hand

My favorite tricks and treats are: Oh,yes. Let me tell you a story: So, I was sleeping in my bed with my door closed. I hear this knock on my door- no not a knock, but a BANG! BANG! BANG! I'm freaking out. What was that?! Then the door open a tad and.... Sparty walked inside. and Since he is fed dry food, he absolutely enjoys wet food! He also likes Pounce Tuna Flavor Moist.

Where I hang out: It varies. He likes to sleep on comfy furniture like beds and couches, but if it comes to floors, he'll sleep wherever he can!

My favorite grubs: Chicken! He even likes mashed potatoes!

My pet peeves: Spartagus have peeves? I don't think so! Well, perhaps maybe one. He absolutely HATES it when you touch his paws: he will not tolerate it. Touch his paw, and one second you'll have your hand, the nest you won't!

What I love about my owners: We're being honest? Okay, well then, the thing I love most about my owner is that she gives me the most treats!

My cat hobbies: Sleep and eat. He has the choice of being indoor or outdoor, and is allowed to go out whenever he wants. Oddly, he prefers to stay inside and lie on the couches or on my bed.

Pet motto: Where there's a cat, there's a home

How We Met

A few months after the devastating death of our old cat Turbo (who could scare dogs away and chase them even though he was declawed- and we adopted him while he was already declawed), we went to adopt a kitten at Dakin. There was an "adopt two cats for the price of one" thing going on, so two of my sisters got to pick one, and me and my other sister got to pick another. There was a problem. My sister wanted the playful cat, but me? I wanted the cat who was pressed against the back of her cage, terrified. I got to hold her, and once she was in my arms, she started purring. We named her Kiara. My other sisters, without a doubt, chose Spartagus. But There were three brothers in that cage who looked very much alike, and so we accidentally adopted Figuro instead of Spartacus (notice the C) and renamed him Spartagus, and we love him just the same. Little did I know then that Dakin is a kill shelter. How can you look into the eyes of a cat and just... end it? It just brings me to tears thinking about it...

Hi Sparty,
Stopping in today with my Sunday blog and vote! What's mew with you? The mews here is that Samson tried to jump Growlie...twice! Mom got on to him,and picked Growlie up and took him to a safe spot,where she then took the oppurnity to examine his fur. The new food seems to be helping him,as new fur is growing back in his,er,bald spots! Mom finally gave in,and is giving us the yummy new food too,yah!......The enclosure kitties managed to knock over their three tower condo that dad made,and smashed a litter box in the process. Mom was just glad no one was injured! She got a new litter box,and threw the smashed one out today. She also did some cleaning in the enclosure,as well as painting today. Mom asked dad if he would make two cat boxes to hang up high in the enclosure. She got the idea from the Catswall design boxes. Dad said he would add it to his 'honey-do list',haha!....The inside cats are doing good! Ellie still loves mom's room,and Gypsy dad's! Gypsy is the only one who hisses at Allie Cat,who is a complete little love bug kitty! ......Oh,and mom told Dad that she needed to save some money and take ME to the vet~YIKES~mom still thinks I am too overweight,and the other outside cats are not,and we all eat the same thing. She wants to make sure nothing else is going on with me. Well,I dread the day I have to go,whenever it may be,'cause when mom gets a notion in her head,she usually follows through. I'll be claw biting untill then! Well,enough till next week!~Purrs and Hugs,Bart

Hi Spartagus,
ANDY AND ELLIE'S MORNING ADVENTURE!

A great big roach across the ceiling did come,
and up the curtain Andy did run!

A mid-air swipe and down it fell;
hit the floor running pell mell!

Andy and Ellie are on it in a flash,
but behind the waste can the roach did dash!

Round and round the cats did run,
chasing the roach and having SO much fun!

Under the rug it tried to escape,
little did it know that was a mistake!

Four taloned paws under the rug did search,
and the 'poor' little roach went plumb berserk!

A valiant run it made for the door,
but a quick paw-swipe pinned it flat to the floor!

A leap,a toss,a flip in the air...
~then CRUNCH!
It's ended-right then and there!

I hope you enjoyed our morning adventure,and hope you have many too!~Hugs,Andy and Ellie

Hi Spartagus,
Meet pretty Eleanor,a dilute calico that Dad found at a busy intersection,along with her two brothers on 7/14/10. Dad originally planned to find homes for them,or see if our local shelter could take them. So mom got in touch with the shelter,and the lady said she had room for them and that her kittens were moving fast. So,it was all settled...or so mom thought! A few days later,Dad told mom that he wanted to keep,not one,but ALL THREE of the kittens! Mom just smiled,and e-mailed the shelter with the change of plans! Dad named her Eleanor because he thought it was pretty,but we call her Ellie,Ellie Mae,or my personal fave-Miss Nosey! Thats right,Ellie has to be where the action is and has to know what is going on in her home at all times! Why,she is even not afraid of that floor monster! She supervises all cleaning,and is even there when mom scoops the litter pans and will sit in the pan to watch! Ellie also has to be with mom in the mornings as she gets ready for work. She will 'tap' on the shower curtain when she thinks mom has been in long enough! Then she will sit on the toilet and 'talk' to mom as she does hair and make-up! Mom swears she is giving her advice,mol! Miss Ellie repeats this same procedure for dad when he get's up. Mom said Ellie reminds her of a momma getting her kids off to school! Ellie gets along well with all us kitties here and is pretty laid back. She also 'adopted' little Andy,and just like a mama,patiently lets him practice his wrestling skills on her-(4th pic)-Ellie also appreciates a really good 'cat nap',no matter where. This busy girl needs them! We all love her very much,and are so happy that Dad had a change of heart and decided to keep her and her brothers!!

Hope you have a restful and blessed Sunday!~Purrs,Bart

Hi Sparty,
This week,I would like for you to meet my sister Gypsy! She was found by our Dad on 6/1/10,as he was cutting off a water meter. She came running up to him,crying and telling him to take her home with him. Dad knew she had been left behind when her people moved. When Dad got off work,he and Mom came back with a carrier and brought her to her new forever home! Mom figured she was only about 5 to 6 months old,which puts her around two now. Dad named her Gypsy,because years ago,real Gypsies used to camp where she was found! Gypsy is a shy,sweet little girl with velvet soft black fur.She prefers to stay indoors,but will occasionally go out in the cat enclosure. Mostly,she is happy to be by herself,and will amuse herself with a toy mousie. However,don't let this 'quite' girl fool you! She has been known to playfully 'attack' her sibs and then tear off running for a rowdy game of tag!! Although not a lap cat,she does like being close to Mom and Dad in the evenings-either in her plush red bed at Mom's end of the sofa,or on the sofa arm by Dad. Gypsy also has a very plaintive meow,that ends on a higher note with a ? sound at the end,and combined with her natural pitiful look,she makes Mom and Dad want to give her whatever she wants....Hummmm,I may have to learn how she does that,mol!! Gypsy is the most gentle,loving and sweet kitty and gets along well with all of us here and causes no trouble! Mom and Dad are very happy they rescued this precious girl! I hope you enjoyed meeting Gypsy as my sib of the week,mol!~Purrs,Bart

Hi Sparty,
I hope the New Year brings health and happiness to you all-with plenty of catnip and treats too!..... Today I am going to introduce you to brother Levi! He is a handsome long-haired multi-colored kitty. He was found on 9/28/09 all alone,at two week old,in a wooden pallet at a recycling center. As the pallet came from where mom works,the lady called mom, and she stopped by after work and picked him up. Mom had to bottle feed him,and of course,big brother Dixon quickly stepped in and took over the potty stimulating and cleaning! As the kitten got older,there seemed to be an issue with his eyes,and mom and dad were not sure if he could see,as the little fellow kept running into everything! Because of this,they decided he would NOT be up for adoption. Turned out his eyes are fine-he just does not like bright lights,and as a result mom can't get a good picture of his beautiful aqua eyes! Mom called the kitten 'Spud' for a long time,as that is what popped into her head at the time. Dad wanted him to have a Bible name,so mom made a list,showed it to dad and he picked LEVI! Better than Spud,huh? That is now his 'nickname'. Levi has never outgrown his need to suckle and will nurse on anyone's hand that will let him. He is not choosy! He is a jealous boy,and will get mad at mom if there is another kitty in her lap when he wants to be there! The only exception to that is Dixon. Those two will pile up together in mom's lap,as they bonded early on and still are to this day! Levi is always welcome in the house,but prefers to spend his days out in the cat enclosure,where he reigns as Top Cat!!...NOTE: Mom used to have some really good baby pics,but a computer virus ate them!~Hope you enjoyed meeting,spoiled,handsome,babyish Levi!

On angel wings my prayers ascend beyond the darkest night, transformed by the radiance of heaven's golden light. beyond the moon and countless stars the smallest prayers are heard. And in time each one is answered according to his word.
On angel wings the answers come in unexpected ways. Bearing fruits in human hearts through works and deeds and praise, and even when the answer is "no"m we know we have been blessed, for in the world of "moght have beens" he surely knows what is best.
On angel wings i am lifted up from the depths of despair and taken to the mountain top because God heard my prayer! On angel wings our lives are changed and nothing is the same. when prayers are heard and answered and people praise his name.

merry christmas my friends

Hi Sparty & Kiara
Great to hear from you again sweet furiends!

This is December 17th…which means only 8 more days until we wake up to purrprises from Santa Paws in our stockings! Trixie will be back next week with more trivia for everyone but she’s annoyed with me for “helping” her catch a mouse yesterday so I decided to do the mews since she’s sulking. What does she expect when she drops it in front of me anyway? My natural reaction was to grab it & toss it in the air. Geesh…I don’t see why she’s complaining because it landed on her head…MOL! She needs to complain to mom for taking it away & tossing it outside in my opinion. I was gonna make a mouse sandwich but mom told me no. She’s a spoilsport when it comes to rodents!

Hi Spartagus,
Bart says-meet my brother Smudge,AKA-Stump Butt! Today I will introduce you to Smudge. Many of you already know him,as he used to have his own page here on CC.For those of you who don't-he is a Manx,like me,and is solid black-except for a 'smudge' of white on his chest. Mom 1st saw him on Pet-finder one week-end when she was bored,and 'just looking'! HA! One look and she was smitten! Smudge was in a foster home,but up for adoption through Claws & Paws,Inc. here in Marion Co. Ga.,where we live. Dad gave the O.K.,and Smudge joined our family on 7/24/07. He was born on 4/26/07. Smudge was his shelter name,and mom liked it,and as it suits him,kept it. He is an outside/inside cat,per his choice! As you can see from his pictures,he is a handsome fellow who likes to sit on his butt like a human. He is an avid 'talker' and can say 'mama'! He's a toilet tissue,paper towel shredder,cabinet door opener kind of cat! He once helped the inside kitties escape by opening the sun-room door! He is an awesome jumper,and leaps from the roof of the house straight to the ground! Smudge loves one-on-one attention from mom and dad,and has a deep rumbling purr! HOWEVER,he does not liked his butt touched,and will bite the hand that tries!! Mom thinks it is because his tailbone ends up on his back,giving him a 'cowlick'! She hopes this does not give him problems as he gets older. Smudge does not get along with the rest of us kitties,with the exception of Charlie. He especially does not seem to like orange cats,and gave Chester grief when he was alive.This past year,he tore a chunk out of little Opie's nose,which resulted in a vet visit for Opie. They are now kept separate at all times,and Smudge is on Homeopet Anxiety Drops w/TFLN. It seems to be helping with his aggression. Mom says Smudge really should have been an only kitty,as he is happiest when he is alone with us-and Charlie,of course!

I hope you enjoyed 'meeting' Smudge,and next week I will tell you about his best bud,Charlie!~Hugs and Purrs,Bart

Hi Spartagus,
I am way behind on my blogging-again! The last few days,dad was busy putting a roof on the cat enclosure and making a winter box bed for my sibs who live out there,complete with a low wattage bulb for heat. He was in a hurry to get it dried in by today,as we are expecting rain,then a very COLD front behind it. Mom swept it out,as there was a ton of leaves in it,and says she has a few more changes to make when the weather is better-like painting and making it pretty! Mom's and their girly junk! She'll probably paint it pink-yuck! Glad I don't live out there!! Hope you have a great day!~Purrs,Bart

Hi Sparty and Kiara
We don't have fleas usually because we never go out. But my Granny's cats used to have them. She used a very dilute solution of dettol [do you get dettol there?] like half a spoon in a mug of water, and would wipe them down with this solution dipped in cotton wool [i think in the US you call it cotton balls?]. a lot of flea ointments are poisonous for cats. left a vote,
love, Sweetie

Hi Sparty and Kiara
Well I went and did it last night, while Mom Pat was carring lots of stuff from work I got out of the house. She said hi to me and then I was gone she turned around really fast and saw me walking down the front sidewalk. I then turned and went down the sidewalk to our neighbor's house. Mom keep coming and calling me but I just kept on walking. She started walking faster and that was hard because she just had surgery on her left knee last Friday. She said she was going to in desperation get my tail but I laid down and she picked me up. She starting yelling at me and said I was in deep trouble now and no playing with the birdie on the string tonight. To top that when Mom was taking her shower I figured I needed one too so I jumped in but I didn't expect there to be water in the tub. I better mind my P's and Q's from now on or at least for a little while, hehhehheh. Sending you love and kitty kisses. Miles

Come visit me, Miles & Q. Angel Maggie.

Good luck with getting rid of the fleas
I'm strictly an indoor cat so fleas have never set foot on my coat as of yet. Some chemicals may be toxic to kitties so carefully read all labels. Fleas are almost like those pesty fruit flies that somehow appear whenever one buys bananas from the grocery store.

Wounded warriors make their way back through extraordinary courage and determination. More than 1,200 members of the US military have lost arms and legs in Middle East fighting in the decade since 9/11.

Military research, creative engineering and technological advances in prosthetics help those who have lost limbs, all or part of an arm or leg through various reasons including:
•Traumatic injuries from military combat including traffic accidents
•Circulation problems from atherosclerosis or diabetes, resulting in amputation
•Birth defects

Federal & state holiday Friday
~11:11:11~(Veteran's-Armistice-Remembrance Day~
On November 11th, we remember the brave fallen. We owe so much to the sacrifices of a very few.

**End of WWI in 1918: A day for Reflection**
In 1918, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, hostilities between the Western Allies and Germany ceased, effectively ending what was until then the bloodiest conflict in human history.

The phrase “at the 11th hour” is biblical (Matthew 20:6 — “And about the eleventh hour) and it is understood to mean “at the very last possible minute.”

After the war, a park was created at the site called the Clairiere de L’Armistice (the Clearing of the Armistice). A concrete pavilion was built to house the rail car, and a statue of Foch was erected along with a plaque that read: “Here on the eleventh of November 1918 succumbed the criminal pride of the German empire ... vanquished by the free peoples which it tried to enslave.”

°l11|11|11l°(A Palindromic Moment)°l11|11|11l°
**Symmetry makes us feel safe and balanced.
Nov. 11, 2011, the date when three 11s will align for the first time in a century. There's nothing unusual about the time 11:11 or the date 11/11/11 except the unofficial start of the 2012 metaphysical year.

**Mathematics
The number eleven, as the sixth prime number, has a special characteristic in mathematics. It contains some interesting peculiarities where the number eleven multiplied by itself equals a palindrome (remains the same when its digits are reversed):
(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121
(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
