Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

How To Have A Sibling And Never Meet…

Hiya! Savannah Here!

Well, got’cha with that title, huh?!  I know, I know…some of you have been hoping the “Pets Add Life” feelings would grab hold of me…and I would see my good furriend Texas and his new sister, Kitshka, and watch Jazz Cat Jay learn to be furriends with Miss Satchie…and VOILASAVANNAH WILL WHINE TO GET A SIBLING KITTY!…HEH… not happening!


Remember when Zee and Zoey had that Cat Ruler of the World election? If you recall, Katie, of Glogirly fame, won…

…and she was running to benefit Blind Cat Rescue.

Well, I was just pawing around the Blind Cat Rescue site, looking at some of the kitties…and one cute Tuxie boy caught my attention…I meowed for Mom and Dad…and we all met Boots together…

“Boots is a nice fellow who is FIV+

He was found as a stray and the people did not feel safe in keeping him with their other cats (they apparently are alpha type cats who they felt would fight with Boots)  so they asked us to take him.
He is very sweet,  a little shell shocked but I think he will do ok.
We recently removed his one bad eye.  He is recovering nicely from surgery.”

At that time, he had only one supporter. So we all continued to paw around and we learned we could sort of “adopt” Boots, for $30 USD/month, we get to contribute to his quality of life by helping make sure there are funds there to take care of him. He now has like 5 supporters…isn’t that pawsome??!

So I DO have a fur sibling, I probably won’t ever have to meet him but I can love him from afar and help make sure he is loved, has a warm place to live and gets lots of scritches and stuff…I will probably send him Christmas gifts too…makes me one purring happy ladycat…

…isn’t he just the sweetest Tuxie?…

And I just luvluvluv his little black button on his left lip…

That’s my new sibling bro’ Boots…a very, very special addition to our family…and I don’t have to share my toys or Mom’s time with him…works out pretty good, don’t ya think???

Paw pats, Savannah

    Now THAT’s an idea for a sibling we three can really support!

  2. OMC! Boots is the kitty I featured in my blog about sponsoring cats! Thank you! He’s so cute! I won’t let the peeps adopt another cat and when things get better, we’d like to sponsor one too.

  3. I’m going to get huMum to read this blog entry and then maybe we can get a sibling I don’t have to meet … I have real problem with sharing *sad ears*

  4. That is a very nice thing to do!!! We live in NC and would love to visit Blind Cats Sanctuary some day – if we go we will say hi to your brother for you.

    • OMC! Would you? Really!? mom says I could send Boots a care package through you so you can deliver it personal like with some nose rubs and snuggles!! That would be so fun! Be sure to let me know if you go, paw pats, Savannah

  5. Hey Savvy, Jetty here. Hi Miss Cabo San Linda.

    Brilliant idea, simply brilliant! So proud of you…

    • Spitty the Kitty from Spitty Speaks told me that just cuz he and his human saw this post, she hopped over to Blond Cat Rescue and ADOPTED a kitty too!! one that only had one sponsor!! So soon Spitty will have a virtual sibling just like me!! Isn’t that cool that another kitty got sponsored just cuz of this one little post!! And of course having virtual siblings is such a new age thing to do, and natch that me and Spitty both live in the San Francisco Bay Area….it’s such a California thing to do! LMTO

  6. Sounds like the bestest type of brother!!

  7. That’s a great way to have a sibling. I am sure that Herman approves. I am also sure that Herman will meet up with your angel kitties and have a great time with them. Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean a lot to me. Oh, and Spyro and Oja have Feline Leukemia, too. I adopted Herman because he was the right kitty at the right time for me, so any siblings I adopted had to have the virus, too.

  8. That is so cute, Savvy! You do kind of look alike a little =^.^=
    Boots seems very nice and just the right amount of mischievous!
    So glad for you.
    (yeah, I’m back online)

    Guess what? Guess what? Guess what? My Human thought that was the best idea ever–so she did the same thing!! There were two kitties (one boy and one girl) who only had one supporter so she told the Peeps there to choose which one would be “ours” and let her know. I’m soooooooo a-cited!!! I can’t wait to know if it’s a brofur or a sisfur! Gosh, I must be a-cited cause I can’t even be all snarky and sarcastic (well, not right now anyway–I’m sure I’ll be back to myself real soon).

    • Squeeee! Spitty!! I am so a’cited for you! Be sure to tell your human to let them know you saw my post about Boots!! I have not been able to send them the link yet so they don’t know I did that post about them!! You have to tell me which one you sponsored!! High paws!

  10. What a wonderful thing for you to do.

  11. You iz da kindest lady Linda n Savannah diz iz da best way to hab a sibling….diz way you still getz all the atten-shun n pawz on luvin n Bootz boy getz all hiz needs met too!!! Diz a win-win, right???

  12. Wow! I wonder if The Producer would think of doing that with Raffles?
    Perhaps I’d miss him now – but don’t tell him.

  13. Aww, that’s so sweet of you! And what a cool idea! He’s a real cutie! That dot/button on his whisker hump is marking the spot to kiss him!

  14. I just know he loves you all and appreciates your kindness!

  15. Cool! We have sister but she lives with us,she’s only got one eye too!

  16. Savannah, you are the sweetest kitty! What a great idea! xx

    I agree with Queen Penelope. Only about Hitch. I’d like him better if he were virtual. So this is great Savannah! A really pawsome thing to do. Boots is a sweet kitty and because of you guys he’ll have a wonderful life. But I’m going to bust your bubble. One day you’ll be napping in the sun and…..pow! Your life will change. So ” poor little thing”. “awww it’s so swee t” ” Oh! I think he likes me” will show up out of no where. Maybe he’s lost and your just going to help him find a home. Well, he’s no dummy, he sees what a good gig you’ve got. And ” we can’t take him to the shelter, poor little guy, he’s hungry”. That’s how you get a brother like Hitch. No discussion, just….BAM! look whose home.

    Awwww that is so sweet!! You taking care of the sweet Boots that will have what he needs to be cared for. *nosetaps* and many Purrrrrrrrrrrrrs

  19. That’s lovely! I look forward to hearing more about him in the future.

  20. Oh Savvy how wonderful that you have a “cyber-sibling” – Boots is quite handsome and has a permanent wink now that he’s had his bad eye removed. Bless his heart and bless YOUR heart and your Mom and Dad for being his benefactor. Now you will know he’s going to live the good life that he deserves.

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  21. that is fantastic Savvy any way you have lots of pals too!

  22. Awwww Savannah that’s a great news… Please give your pawrents a big hug from me, to support Boots is more than pawsome!!!
    The black spot looks really cute :o)

  23. You are just so kind to do that for Boots -we bet he is thrilled to have you for his sister. Too bad one day you can be together in the furs.

  25. Sounds GREAT to have a brother that you don´t have to share your toy´s and mom-person with 🙂
    I think that you can “adopt” a brother or sisfur in some shelters in Sweden too ?

  26. Boots is lovely and what a great thing to do – virtually adopt a cat.

  27. Sounds like the perfect fur-brother to me!!

  28. The perfect solution to having a sibling and he’s gorgeous to boot(s)!
