Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Funnies For Friday…

Hiya! Savannah Here!

Well, as you already know, I have to use some of my OLDER posts ‘cuz Mom has now been gone about 10 years…and she took Dad with her…sigh…yeah, yeah, I know…I have Auntie Shannon wrapped around my paws here to snuggle and play with, but it’s not the same.

Anyways, I asked Mom if she had to use OLD stuff, at least use something fun!

This is a letter I wrote to my former roomies at Kitty Corner to let them know how I was doing.  I had only been with Mom and Dad for about 3 weeks by that time, and already I was so changed from when I lived at Kitty Corner.

I wrote:

“Boy, I had a great Christmas, hope all of you did too. I learned to be around other people beside FM (foster Mom) and FD (foster Dad).  Scary, but I handled it pretty well. Only went under the bed once!!

 So, we had company for Christmas dinner.  And guess who came from KC (Kitty Corner)??

 Suzanne!…you know her—she sounds different, and her hubby, Kevin joined us. I was really pleased to see Suzanne, and I let her pet me and I even purred for her and talked to her just a bit. She was so sweet—said she liked my voice as she had never heard it.

 And Kevin, well, he is a guy—and I am still kind of afraid of them. But, I was going to let him come into our bedroom and I was going to say hi—but guess what he said!!!

 “I was hiding quietly behind the afghan over the chair, and he says “I can see her butt”!!! “

My butt is showing

 YIKES! Can you believe it! After all my squats I still have a big butt that sticks out for all to see—sheesh! And then there is the tail too.  So we have to step up my workout program. Yes, that is a picture on the right of my butt sticking out of the afghan.  Humiliating!

 So, the exercise is getting pretty fun.  I have started to get lots more aerobic time in, what with chasing my catnip mouse when I throw it in the air, playing with the laser light and then the wand feather thing—whew—that really tires me out ‘cuz I chase it like a crazy girl!

 You can see me doing some upper body boxing in the photo below.  That keeps my front legs and paws in good shape so I can whack someone if needed.

Upper body workout

 I have a photo of me and FM taking a nap together.  She is so sweet; she reaches out and scratches my head.  I just love, love, love having my whole head scratched, especially around my eyes, nose and my ears—-ooohhhh—that is sooooo nice.”

Napping with foster Mom

I wrote two letters to my former roomies while I was still being fostered by Mom and Dad…I think those two letters got me and Mom starting to think about blogging…it was my beginning…

Hope you had a good time reading…I like to think I have come a long way in my mental and fitness recovery as well as in my writing…certainly Mom is like WAY BETTER with the FLASH and CLICK!!! She and Dad bought a brand new camera just to make my blog photos better…gotta luvluvluv those guys!

Paw pats, Savannah

  1. how much longer til they are back with you?? What a fab letter and I am so pleased that your folks decided to let you blog!!

  2. Oops, my nose was getting in the way of the keys. Sorry, Savannah. Sometimes my spelling is atrocious. 🙂

  3. I think writing that letter to your roomies was really, really special. You are one sweet kitty, Suvannah!

  4. Aw, Savvy, that was a sweet letter you wrote to your old friends!

    That was an awesome letter you wrote to your former roommates, Savannah! I hope by now they all have happy homes too.

    • Blushes Sparkle…high praise for writing coming from you…and yes….all the roomies I had back then are in furrever homes, at least I hope. Sometimes, the adopter returns the kitty, usually for reasons we don’t understandably, such as ” this cat is too affectionate, wants too much attention…or after 3 years, beautiful Siamese, declawed in front, returned as psychotic, pee and poop everywhere, etc., once back with us, just fine and adopted to REAL furrever loving home and NO litter box issues”
      Humans are hard to understand sometimes….just sayin

    Hi darling girl, So how many more years do you think your pawrents will be gone? Like 6 or 8? Well, it’ll serve them right if you decide to go home with Auntie Shannon, MOL!

  7. Hi sweetie, So how many more years do you think your pawrents will be gone? Like 6 or 8? Well, it’ll serve them right if you decide to go home with Auntie Shannon, MOL!

  8. I like that. You write letters to your old inmate friends. I hope they don’t get too jealous and cry cos they still don’t have furever homes. Thanks for sharing. I’ll run through my new tunnel and visit with you tonight. OK?

    • Yes!! I’ll leave one end of mine open for you CK…what fun! Glad you got it, you admired mine and because you have to travel so much what with campaign manager jobs, DJ Twitter Nip Club and stuff, thought you could use a Fast Leopard Teleport Tunnel…aw hugs, Savvy

  9. Hey Savvy, Jetty here. Hi Miss Linda.

    You’re doing great with Auntie Shannon, I’m so proud of you. 🙂

    Loved your letter… so kind of you to share with Kitty Corner all your experiences in what would become your furever home.

    Hi Savannah! I know you’re missing your Mom and Dad. It must seem life they’ve been gone forever. I don’t know they started out as your foster parents. Was it a trail run or are you a “foster fail”? Which ever it was you scoped out you pretty blue afghan pretty early on. It really brings out the blue tint in your fur. Really beautiful. Enjoy your time with Auntie Shannon because your Mom and Dad will be home soon.
    Purrs to you,
    Mistletoe &Hitch

  12. Younsure have come a long way Savannah! Now you just need Mom and Dad home!

  13. Just think how much farther along you are NOW in your recovery than you were THEN Savvy……I know your Mom and Dad are proud of you as well as all your former “roomies” at Kitty Korner. I know it seems like furever since your parents went on their trip but they’ll be home soon – and hopefully with a present or two for you!!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  14. Aww Savannah, you look so pretty on the blue afghan! Don’t worry they will be home before you know it.

  15. looks pretty slim to me!

  16. I left one challenge to you in my blog!
    Have a good weekend!

  18. It’s not that your butt was too big Savvy, it’s that the Afghan was too small.

  19. Great letter! Bet the folks at Kitty’s Corner were pleased to hear from you and to know that you were getting on well xx
