Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Monday Meowsie News: Can we please get some POTP?

HIYA!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I decided to let my little foster kitten Miss Lillian aka Lilly have the blog post today. As you can see in the following photos, she kind’a sort’a took over Mom L’s computer so I just said “go for it kid!!”

Hmmm…now that is one fine photo of a darling kitten

As you all know, I don’t try to help Mom L with the blog technical stuff. I am more of a “visionary” cat. And besides, I just can’t jump up on her desk anymore—darn arty-right-us!! But Miss Lilly sure can get up there and I think she did a mighty fine job of it.

Oh, nice composition…but it looks a tad off focus on me!

So Miss Lilly tinkered a bit more and finally seemed satisfied.

I changed focus to me so’s to not wake up Auntie Katie

What can I say, except that our foster kittens, nine month old Katie and four month old Lilly, have been with us for almost five months and they are tryin’ to take over my blog!!

Now about the POTP request in my headline. You see, sweet Miss Lilly has been very sick since about last week of October. She has been to emergency with Dad P two times and to three different clinics. Unfortunately, her blood work indicates, but doesn’t prove, that she may be a genetic liver shunt kitten. Mom L and Dad P are taking her to a special Veterinarian tomorrow, Tuesday.

Please if you have a moment, send sweet precious Lilly your most kind and caring POTP. We may not be able to save her so she can find her forever home. But Mom L and Dad P sure as heck are gonna try and The Kid Sage and I are right there with them.

Friday Memes Just for You

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Back again with my feline memes. Hope you get your Friday smile goin’ when you see them. And if any of my readers are willing to send me some photos I can use to create even better memes—AWESOME!! Woofies, kitties, and bunnies and all are welcome!!

My first Friday meme is from me, Ms. Savvy Do…I so do not appreciate any “V-E-T” visit.

Yup, that’s me! I recently had to undergo a V-E-T exam because it was first, my annual checkup and second I was sneezing up a storm. Mom L and Dad P must have tracked in some germs and I had a classic Upper Respiratory Infection—aka URI. After some not well received by Princess Savannah liquid meds, I am now in full recovery. But gag me!!! Who wants that junk squirted down your throat?

Moving on, the next meme is from a recent rescue mancat. Mom L named him Stan the Man!

Stan has his neuter tomorrow and also his Vet check. We hope his lump on his neck is benign and that he graduates with flying colors so he can go to adoptions. He has  line up waiting to promote him!!

And then we must hear from The Kid Sage aka TKS.

What can I say? TKS just can’t keep her paws off any chik-hen!

Hope you enjoyed at least one of my Friday Memes. Let me hear some shout outs for your faves in comments.

Monday Meowsie News: Pawing It Forward Never Stops

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Just when I thought I was gonna get these two foster kittens outta my castle, they go off to the adoption place and get that darn ring worm all over again!!! How many times do I have to “Paw It Forward” for these two?? I’m tellin’ you, Sage and I are getting pretty tired of sharing my our castle!!

I am so tired of taking meds…can’t I just get my own castle?

Yup, Katie is tired of the meds and Mom L and Dad P are tired of having to give them. And that younger one, Lilly, well she just keeps all of us worried cuz she isn’t getting her weight back. But she still has to take that  med for the ring worm.

What? No, please no…not again

So Katie and Lilly have been keeping Mom L and Dad P hopping this week since they had to come home from Contra Costa Humane Society’s Kitty Corner. But that isn’t all Mom L has been up to this week.

Finally this whole litter of four kittens has been trapped and the mom cat too. Mom cat is now spayed and the kittens were taken to Contra Costa Animal Services by Mom L. The first little guy was taken in a couple weeks ago ‘cuz he was injured.

Remember me? I make those cage bars look good!

He is healing nicely and will soon get his x-ray. Mom L took in his three siblings early this last week. Are they not just as cute as buttons???

Two brothers

And the only girl in the bunch…

Go on, you can pet me!

Then Mom L responded to a local Nextdoor neighbor who had a male, not neutered, friendly adult cat coming around all the time to get food. He must have lived in the house they moved into ‘cuz he keeps trying to get inside.

Stan’s Nextdoor photo

Mom L named him Stan. And took him to Contra Costa Animal Services for his neuter, vaccines, etc. He is thought to be about seven years old and they found a ring around his neck, down to the skin, where a collar must have been and that became too small for him. We are waiting to learn about the lump they also found on his neck, at the back.

Hey folks! My name is Stan, the manly mancat!

Wonders never cease in the world of community cat rescue and this last week was no exception. On TOP of all the above, one of Mom L’s rescue trapping pals helped out with a friend who found a mom cat and kittens in his wood pile. Same mom cat from a year ago and there she was back again with kittens. Well Miss Jeanne worked her magic over THREE days and she caught the four kittens AND got the mom cat!! Mom cat is already getting spayed and will be released in the neighborhood and the kittens are now safe and sound and healthy at Contra Costa Animal Services.

Go on, you can say “squeeee!!”

I don’t know about you, but I am bone tired after writing this blog post about our past week of Pawing It Forward!!

I’m just going to enjoy this Fall sun puddle

Hope you are inspired by my Monday Meowsie news blog post. I am embarrassed I missed out on yesterday’s Blog Blast For Peace, but what can I say. We were out rescuing community cats so I hope Miss Mimi forgives my absence this year from #Blog4Peace
