HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!
(hover to read full captions and click to bigify)

I was having a little staff meeting with Mom L and I confessed to her…I sometimes worry that my furriends think I am mostly a stern looking cat…and that must lead them to believe I do not have a softer side…I don’t always look like this you know…

I know, I  know…some of you remember some photos of me showing a more soft side…

But that was a year or so ago…so I asked Mom L to shoot a couple of videos of me being all lovey dovey with her like I do EVERY SINGLE DAY…especially in the morning…(EDIT: Mom L’s voice was deleted, thank you Window Movie Maker and You Tube…please forgive Mom L’s gooey talk…but that’s how I like her to talk to me…’nuff said about that...)

I really like to have Mom L pat by butt…and then she sort of helps me scoot along…sometimes I cover almost a complete circle doing this OR I can cover several feet because I keep pulling myself forward every 30 seconds or so…it’s a kind of game we play…I luvluvluv it!

And I also allow Mom L to give me toe massages…mostly my hind toes…it’s nice

So the only other Monday Meowsie News I have is about Dad P and The Kid Sage doing another one of their DIY Projects…personally, I try hard to stay out of their way…heh…heh…

peeEss…Mom L is having a photo shoot session with Tigger today…so I think we will have new images for you to admire and use if you will help me network Tigger. He still is longing for his very own permanent home.  Thank you to all who continue to SHARE, Re Post and Tweet about Tigger.

I have another adult rescue to share with you…a woofie….who is in great need…but that is for later…we are still working on his story…you are going to want to network him for sure…trust me…just like Tigger…hard to imagine no one wants him…catch you later with breaking news…purrs, Savvy

What Happens When a Human DOES NOT Touch My Toes?: Friday Frolics

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

(click to bigify and hover over photo to view captions)

Most of you already know that Spitty and I are like, well, almost related. We both live in the glorious San Francisco Bay Area…he with fog, me with sunshine (and central AC).

Many of you know that I am in general…’untouchable’ by foreign humans…yet as close as Spitty and I are…his human, on her most recent last visit to my castle…actually attempted to make an impression on ME…by ‘gently’ touching my front paw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, did not go well, nope…not well at all…read about it HERE

My gal pal up in Oregon, Sage, from Sage Chronicles, sent her Mom to visit me and say hello.  Now she did  that pretty ok…right??

 

And now most recently…like just this last week…my CHAMPION JETTY…YES!!! Some of you I just know remember my CHAMPION JETTY from Hey, It’s Jet Here blog…

Miss Lori, Jet’s human Mom actually visited ME…yeah, ok…and The Kid Sage…this last week!!!

Some of you will recall Jet having stepped forward to protect me from all those interested ‘mancats’ who wanted to romance me when I first started my blog…especially those dudes over at Katnip Lounge…bwaahahahaha…

ahem…koff, koff…moving on…so Jet stepped up to become my official CHAMPION…(you see Dad P said I was just TOO young to have any steady mancats in my life…and as you know…I AM his very own special Princess and Dad P always watches out for me).

So Jet accepted my invitation to be my personal Champion…

My Champion always looks out for me

My Champion always looks out for me

Unfortunately, Miss Lori, Jet’s huMom…became very ill…in 2012…and Jet had to take a very long blocation to care for her…along with his sisfur Miss Always Very Nice Never Complains ‘JJ’

So, Miss Lori FINALLY came to visit ME, Me, Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And guess how I greeted her…

 

Miss Lori…unlike others…NEVER, EVER attempted to touch my toesies…and I honored her, just because of her humility in my presence and because of my love for Sir Jetty… I allowed her to stroke my actual furs, over two days, and even allowed her to stroke my face, ears, throat and even rub my whole face and eyes and ears….ohhhhhhhhh….she has such soft hands….sigh…..

Well…moving on…that is pretty much what it takes to come into my royal presence…and for those who have followed me from the beginning…you all know…this was a humongous leap forward in my recovery.  I am ‘becoming’…me “REAL SELF”…

All it has taken is time, love, respect and caring…even The Kid Sage has moved me forward by leaps and bound in just 9 months.

Hepatic Lipidosis?…Will You Help Save This Cat?

Thursday Purrsday…

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Ahem…koff, koff…aaaahhhheeemmm…*clears throat*…

Savvy Girl

This is not my normal, nor my continuing focus for my Thursday Purrsday blog post…but…somehow…someway…the feline condition known as “Fatty Livery Disease”…which is actually “Hepatic Lipidosis“…well…adult rescue shelter cats with this presenting disease just seem to be continually showing up in my life.

….this sweet ladycat came to my attention a couple of weeks ago…and I can no longer hold back asking all my furriends, followers, acquaintances…including my feline, woofie and bunny and piggie…pals….to take a moment to consider if you might be able to help an incredible animal rescue and sanctuary begin to cover the medical costs for precious LIGHTNING….

edit 04

The beginning of Lightning’s story…as reported by Bright Haven Rescue and Sanctuary under whose care she thankfully had fallen…

“When she was adopted on June 18th,(at Martinez, CA Public Kill Shelter)…Lightning was a healthy 12 pounds. She was returned on August 1st weighing 7 pounds, just bones under her fur, and jaundiced. The cat had been allowed to starve. She developed fatty liver disease, also known as hepatic lipidosis. She would need a feeding tube to survive. Could we help her?”

Lightning was in the final stages of Hepatic Lipidosis…just like my Cuzin Leo…(click here if you missed his story)…you can see that Lightning shows the same yellow jaundice all over her head as Cuzin Leo.  I am pleased to tell you all that Cuzin Leo survived…as will precious Lightning…

...NOW COMES THE “BUT”...Lightning’s vet care costs continue to soar…even though she is currently in the loving and caring hands of a wonderful Bright Haven volunteer.

Bright Haven has set up a “You Caring: Pet Caring” crowd funding site…they are about half way to reaching the basic care cost to help Lightning through this unreal ordeal.  If you or your friends, family, colleagues…acquaintances…strangers you meet on the street…can give even ONE USD…please consider donating to Lightning’s recovery costs.

She will survive…and she WILL have a perfect forever home.  Bright Haven will make sure of that.  Thankfully, she was brought under their care.

I appreciate you all so much for even reading this very long post…and if you do not have any green papers to Paw It Forward…PLEASE…PAW IT FORWARD JUST BY SHARING…

SHARING SAVES LIVES…even if we are continents away…the universe can bring positive energy where it is needed…that is my belief…and I, Savannah, am going to stick to it!

Paw Pats, Savannah
