Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

The Kids Are Getting Bolder!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

As you know, I have been putting up with The Kid Sage for a few years now. She has learned that the left side of the couch in MINE!! And Mom L sits on the right side and no one sits between us ‘cuz sometimes I like to get close to her and get some brushies and chin rubs. That’s how it is in my castle and TKS has learned that. But now, this new kid Kit Katie (KK) is trying to undo all the training I have been giving TKS.

This is MY side of the couch!

You can see that KK has decided she can sleep on the couch which has been forbidden to TKS. But this new kid seems to think my rules don’t apply to her. Mom L put some pillows in the middle and gave KK a blankie on Mom L’s side of the couch hoping she would go over there and leave me in peace on MY side of the couch.

Well that works OK whenever I am using the couch. But you see I taught TKS that even when I am NOT using my side of the couch, it is to remain open just in case I wanna take a nap there. TKS understands and leaves it empty.

But KK just hasn’t learned about what part of the couch is MINE!.I caught her on MY SIDE and there on the side Mom L set up for her I find TKS!! What’s up with that? Something is mighty wrong with this picture, don’t you think so???

There KK is just as happy as a little clam on MY SIDE of the couch!! Why there is no space for me at all!! This couch is my special place to be near Mom L at night when we watch TV or read. It has been mine since I first arrived here in my forever castle.

If you have any ideas for how I can get KK to leave my side of the couch alone I sure would like to hear them in comments. I am just gobsmacked that these kids are getting so bold together. Do you think they are trying to gang up on me?? Take over my castle???

Friday Memes For You

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

My memes today family oriented—sort’a. I mean they are just with me and TKS. Not so sure we’d call ourselves “family”, na’ mean?

You can see that TKS and I were having a bit of a stand off in that photo above. Still are actually—we’ve been staring at each other for about five years now and waiting to see who blinks first!!

You can probably guess what my decision was, right? TKS and I have been managing our ‘relationship’ for a while now and some things have indeed changed. I let her sleep on my our big bed at night with Dad P and Mom L as long as she stays on her side. I even allow her to eat in the same room with me, sometimes.

I can see some of you have your Friday Smile going already so get out there and have the best day you ever wanted!!

Community Cats Are Worth It!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Just in case you didn’t already know it, Mom L and Dad P have started a program in our forever city of Pittsburg, CA called Project Delta View Cats (PDVC). Of course I am the one who told influenced them about just how to go about doing this new Paw It Forward Project for me us. Not sure how they would have gotten this far without my steadfast incessant advice.

But we all know that our community’s abandoned, stray cats are worth every bit of effort we invest in helping them to live healthier lives and to over time have fewer of them left to fend for themselves. We are making sure the community cats we find are spayed, neutered, vaccinated and that their feeders are practicing the most neighborly methods of feeding them and caring for them so’s the whole neighborhood doesn’t see the cats as nuisances.

The hard working volunteers here at PDVC work nights and weekends to try to humanely trap the stray, abandoned, feral community cats we locate or feeders tell us about. Lots of times we work in teams when we have some trap savvy kitties to catch.

Cat trappers working out their strategy

You see this project those trappers are working on involves some down right trap wary cats. They even had one of them snoopervising them while they talked about how they were gonna approach this project that involve a mom cat and some pretty feral juvenile kittens.

Yeah, you guys try that. HAH!! Won’t work!

This smarty pants then went off to tell the other cats what we were gonna do. He hung around to learn that they were using both a regular humane trap and a drop trap!

Electronic drop traps can be triggered from a long distance

That reconnaissance cat watched until he knew just what the trappers were up to and then this is all Mom L saw of him again!

Off to tell the other guys what to look out for…heh…heh…heh

As I said at the top of this post, COMMUNITY CATS ARE WORTH IT!!

As for me, I have been snoopervising from my favorite sun puddle created by one of our skylights.

Snoopervising is such hard work!

Let me hear in comments how you help your community cats. You can also help us,  http://www.deltaviewcats.org, at Project Delta View Cats by visiting our website and dropping off a few green papers…heh…heh…heh! Thanks for coming to visit me today.
