Friday Memes Are Back


I kind’a think this Friday Meme thing is here to stay. I have a huge backlog of my pals sending me photos just dying to have some “Meme Talk” added to them. Some are my social media anipals and others are my local animal rescue pals.

Don’t you want to send me your guest animal meme right now??

First up…from my bestest ever Siberian Husky blog pals at RA Husky. Introducing Ms Timber the Norwegian Elkhound showing off her “snooter radar”.


Next up for your entertainment is a nosy neighbor cat who visited Ms Sandy, one of Mom L’s cat rescue buddies. They do not have a blog…but maybe they outta be thinking about one, right?


And my next guest photo is from my pals The Kitty Platoon. They are always up to something tryin’ to keep up with their Mom Ms Josie and all her travels.


Sending you some smiles for the beginning of your weekend. Don’t be shy, send me your own animal memes!


Never Let This Happen Again #remembermethursday


The Kid Sage and I are joining paws across the world to bring focus on the urgent need to remember all those companion, adoptable animals who were not fortunate like us—their forever family did not find them. Some, well—they did survive because of that.

Savvy message



#remembermethursday #remembertherescue

Today is a day to #remembertherescue #remembermethursday. This global event across all channels of social media is founded and hosted by Helen Woodward Animal Center along with brands which support this movement.

I am a former adult shelter cat, considered “less adoptable” due to my extreme shyness and fear. I am going to make a difference, four paws at a time, if that is what it takes.

dont leave me behind

Many of us who work the social media channels to promote those who are languishing in shelters, left without hope—and no matter what social medial channel we use—we always get all those comments about ” so hope [it] finds a  home”; wish I were closer; etc. Those are always kind THOUGHTS.

But, #remembermethursday is a CALL TO ACTION. I, Savannah the Cat, say do not leave those comments unless you also tell me that you have SHARED that rescue animal’s plight, urgency across every social media channel you access. Even if you can email that plea to all your friends. DO SOMETHING!



These animals literally die. They need OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY to SHARE SHARE SHARE AND PROVE WE CARE!

*steps down, one paw at a time, off soap box*

Many caring humans believe that once a cat is “rescued” by a non-profit rescue, and taken into foster care that he cat is now “safe” and “has a home”. That is so not true. I tried very hard to bring to light the fact that there are hundreds of rescues who have “foster adult cats” languishing in their care and these cats are so adoptable it makes me, Savannah the Cat, almost ashamed to have the loving home I now have.

I was totally considered as “less adoptable”. I was extremely shy and terrified of both other cats and humans. And yet, even though my rescue shelter told Mom L and Dad P that I did not need any toys as I never played—loving care and a patient home proved everyone wrong. If not for the rescue system, I would not be writing this blog.

This year you can all get the entire world talking about pet adoption. AND more importantly , you can help your favorite rescue bring home some Green Papers OR some NOMS!! Yummy! Enter HERE!

Please join me all day tomorrow to spread the love and caring all shelter animals need to NOT BE LEFT BEHIND.



PeeEss—Please do not allow Momma Kat, aka #mammakatssearch, to be another left behind #remembertherescue #remembermethursday. Momma Kat still has not inquiries about adopting this courageous and loving mom cat. Please be ready for the update next week on #MommaKatsHopeChest

Living The Good Life


Being as how this is Wednesday, and I’m trying to be a tad less wordy on occasion, I decided to share a couple of photos that depict my typical day. Now some of you are gonna figure I’m just one spoiled cat, but I know others are gonna be thinkin’ “Way to go Savvy!”

You see, I never thought I would have a home where I was allowed to do things on my own terms. But here, well, Mom L and Dad P just let me be my Real Self. I call that a really good life, don’t ya think so?

What makes you know you’re living the good life along with me?

Oh hi Mom L. I'm just doin patio guard duty with Nanuk

Oh hi Mom L. I’m just doin’ patio guard duty with Nanuk

Nanuk was given to me by Dad P so’s I could have my very own personal guard Sibe. Seems like a pretty good life to me.

If peeps can dine by candle light, why not me?

My Dad P follows me just about anywhere in the house to feed me. He doesn’t mind following me up and down the stairs to deliver my dinner to me. You see, I usually need about three passes at my breakfast and dinner. And at dinner time that means I might start down stairs but then move upstairs to get a break from TKS.

I know this isn’t wordless, but I gonna join the Blog Paws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop anyways. Drop by and visit some new pet blogs.
