Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

The Gathering

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

As you can see from my photo, KK aka Kit Katie, is continuing to encroach further into my peaceful castle. For some reason Mom L and Dad P seem to think that allowing her access to every nook and cranny is all part of her further socialization process. Supposedly this will lead to her ability to find her own forever castle. I WISH!!

You got it right. There she is right in the middle of the bed, between TKS and me. Please notice I am giving her a most proper “back of disdain” while silly TKS is looking at her in amazement. KK even gets TREATS when she joins us in my our master bedroom! Something always reserved just for me, the Princess, and TKS, the lady in waiting.

KK was supposed to go to two adoption events at a local Petco this past weekend, but that smarty pants developed conjunctivitis so the rescue rightly so, wouldn’t allow her until her eye is cleared. She also seems to have developed kitty cat acne on her chin, likely from stress and that plastic water dish that is long gone now.

I promise, against my better judgement, to keep you updated on Katie’s health and what’s going on in her path to adoption. She did have one inquiry after Mom L posted her on Petco’s “re-homing” site, http://www.adoptapet.com. You can view her profile here and please do share!

PeeEss…sadly, dearest Lilly was again returned after her adopters had her only less than 3 weeks. They returned her because she was “stressing out” their two year old resident cat from whom Lilly was adopted as a “playmate”. The other resident cat is about twelve years old. Poor Lilly was set up for failure. Please give her some POTP. Thankfully she returned to Kitty Corner and is still her adorable, loving playful self.

Friday Memes and Friday Smiles

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

We made it to Friday and I have my memes all set for you.

I know lots of my pals can relate to my meme!! Heck my dinner was served so early this week they had to reheat it by the time I was finishing up my afternoon nap!!

TKS so tries to keep up with the latest styles. But she usually missed the point somewhere along the way.

And there you have Mr. Elliot! Watson is a male, not altered, abandoned cat found wandering and pitifully crying near one of our volunteer’s home. He was filthy, matted and yet all he wanted was to have someone pet him. Mom L and Dad P’s new organization Project Delta View Cats got Watson into an adoption path at Contra Costa Animal Services. You see Watson is about six years old and never neutered so he of course tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). No transfer partner rescue would pull him from our shelter but the shelter at volunteers put together a great video and promoted Watson. And yes, his forever home finally found him!! Watson has been adopted by a woman looking for a lap cat and Watson will live the rest of his life doting on his new human guardian.

Hope you enjoyed my memes this week.

Everyday Brings New Excitement

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have to say that having this Kit Katie hanging around sure does keep everyone on their toes. She is non-stop checking out every little corner of my castle. And she has to talk all the time she is doing it. How the heck can a senior cat get her napping done.

Well as you can see, I am not having anything to do with the kid’s explorations. As long as I have my end of the couch and Mom L is at the other end where she can reach over and pet me now and then, I don’t care

I do have to say that Kit Katie has really been living on the edge the last few days. You remember that photo from my last Friday Memes where TKS is staring from her tower in total disbelief at what she is seeing happening before her eyes?

I cannot believe what Kit Katie is doing!!!!

This is what TKS was watching. She was looking at me, actually enjoying some treats within like eighteen inches of Kit Katie. Yup, even I surprised myself doin’ it the first time. Heck, my throat was so hoarse from hissing at Kit Katie (KK) when she hopped up on my our bed, I needed those treats just to clear my head!!

Now we do this almost every morning. I am actually staying on the bed while KK roams all over it. She has discovered Mom L’s iPad and thinks those mouses are pretty fun. (hover over photo to view caption)

She has also discovered that she can climb from our bedroom scratch post to the tippy top of Mom L’s jewelry chest to get a better look at the art hanging on the wall.

And TKS has an even more frightening experience as she watched from her tower at this morning’s action with KK and me on our bed.

No!! Oh no!! This is gonna be really really bad!!!

You see, KK was all rolling around on the bed and snuggled up against Mom L’s leg. Then she did the awful horrible. She stretched as far as she could and she let her paw touch my furs!!! TKS was right to be lookin’ so shocked!

I bet I can reach Savvy from here…

Well I can tell you that I gave her my loudest, meanest snarl and yowl of outrage and I raised my paw to give her a whack! Luck for KK she moved fast and zipped off the edge of the bed. The nerve!!!

So I am ready for Kit Katie to find her own castle. I sure do hope my pals will grab her badge at this end of this blog post and share her all over your social media. Anyone interested can contact Contra Costa Humane Society in Pleasant Hill, CA at 925-279-2247. Kit Katie lives with me, but CCHS has her in their re-homing program so they contact Mom L if there is an inquiry for Kit Katie.

PeeEss…thought you might like to see some new photos of the River View Park cats getting their chow on a very rainy day. Didn’t stop them!

And here is KK’s badge.
