Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Monday Meowsie News…

Hiya! Savannah Here!

So a couple of things I did when Mom and Dad returned from being gone on their 700 year vacation to Mexico…

First…I did give Mom my back of disdain for about…ohhhh…ummmm…10 seconds…just long enough to sniff her fingers…decide it really was her…then I threw myself down on my side for her to administer much needed scritches and purrrred really loudly so she would think twice about going off again…

Now…here’s what I did when she sat on the couch for the first time the night they got back…

…yup, that is me, within reach of Mom ‘s hand without her even having to stretch…I always sit at the far end…with my backside toward her…I did turn away at first, but then I let her give me lots of scritches

…ummmm…missed your hand Mom…

…she sent me right to sleep…keeping one eye slit to make sure she stayed put…heh…heh

And then, she and Dad had to buy two more chairs for the dining table for Thanksgiving…before they left…and Mom tried to make a tent for me like Sammy has.  I never got in the chair she put in our office before she left.

Then the first day she was back and working…she turned around…and guess where I was???…

…I was trying out that chair!!…I wasn’t sure at first, but then I liked it!!

Then I found the window sill…you already saw this, but it is something I did that was new…and brave…

…and I learned that I can just walk from the window ledge down to MY chair!…

…I have been very busy, making my list of planned posts for the next several days…I have been snoopervising Mom as she takes notes from me…

All in all, I think I have had a catgone good week since Mom and Dad got back! Lots of new behaviors…more exploring…

Have a pawsome Monday, Paw pats, Savannah

  1. I’m glad your mumy and daddy are back ,make sure you get extra cuddle from them both Savvy,xx Speedy and Mum

  2. Wow Savvy……you’re just bold as brass there young lady! New stuff every day practically and I know you were as happy to have your parents back as they were to be back home with you. CONCATULATIONS on discovering the joys of a tent! I love mine…..especially the one in my Mom’s studio so I can keep an eye on her. I’m so glad you gave tenting/camping (!!) a try!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • Hey Sammy, I actually wouldn’t get in the tent like thing she tried to make, but you can see the chair she has in our office has low arms and with the blue fleece on it, I feel secure like being in a box sort of…so for now, that works OK for me. Our office in this new house isn’t as big and so no room for a real stuffed chair but this is fine by me, paw pats, Savannah

  3. I did something new, at least according to TW. She said I was laying up against for arm when she woke up! Snickers! Can you believe that? You sure you’re not all the way tamed now?

    • OMC! Cathy Keisha!! I know you aren’t gonna want to admit it, but I’m thinking you sort of found some warmth in TW’s arm in the night and just sort of migrated in that direction, like you would have as a little kitten to get warm from your Mama Cat…nothing personal, you are a tough ladycat from the hood, but…you were keeping warm

  4. Love your header is shows off your beautiful self very nicely. Glad your parents are home and you are having fun exploring and doing new stuffs.

    • waves paw at Scylla, Socks and Fenris…”hi guys”…thanks for coming by, I hope you noticed I have finally made it over to visit you again. So sorry for not being around regular like, but trying to get myself back to a schedule. I have some really great flowers and plants and palms for Thursday for the Feline Gardner’s post, I can’t wait for you to see them, paw pats, Savannay

  5. I do love reading about your new behaviours! Keep up the great work and keep sharing so we can all celebrate with you!!

  6. That’s a good idea to plan the posts – thanks for the inspiration… ;o)

    • I tell you Easy, if Mom and I had not done that before she went away for 700 years, I would NEVER have had a post all those years! But I helped plan them, and then we wrote them up, scheduled them on WP and IT WORKED!!! We wrote 9 posts in 3 days before she left.

    Uh, well, Yeah I want another star!! Who wouldn’t want another star?? Uh, what are we lookin’ at, you know, bribe-wise?

  8. We know you’re happy to have your mom and dad back home again.

    It *is* wonderful to do new things. Even though I have been here a l-o-n-g time, I am surprising the Human lately by getting up in some places I didn’t used to go. Also, in the last few months, she is finding me more often on her bed during the night. Not snuggled up of course, but at least in the same zip code, MOL!

    You look very beauteous on your nice chair. XOXOXO

    • you are too cute Spitty! And I have always been in the same zip code since my first night with Dad and Mom…in fact, at night and early AM, are the only times, and only in our bed, that I am so affectionate with both of them…still don’t get “on” either of them…but am so wanting to be touched and be close…but in the daylight, yeah, well…not so much at all…what is with that????….

  10. Glad your parents are back! Did they bring a gift (like salmon or trout)?
    Purrs

    • ummm, no, not really…just a large thingy called a “sailboat” which was sailing along the coast and Mom waved them down and Dad said…”oh, let’s buy that for Savvy”…MOL (believe that and I have a bridge in San Francisco I can sell ya for like cheap!!!)

  11. Great job. I have never been a brave TT but since losing Zac and gaining the behemoth I have realised I can do so much more than I thought and I am not as scared.
    I hope you continue to take baby steps and realise you are safe and brave.

    • oh Miss Zena, of course you are far more brave than you believe…trust me, I know a tid bit about this stuff…and I know you have the LARGE GIRL to deal with, but you are the SMART ONE…and Zac trained you, not ‘her’…so go forth and be with the ‘force’…paw pats, Savvy

  12. Way to go, Savannah! Before you know it you are going to be on her lap 🙂

  13. Savannah, When my housekeeper comes back from a trip, I sit either on her, or on whatever she is trying to read. Well, I usually do that a fair amount anyway, but after a trip I do it a LOT more, to try and keep her where she belongs, here at my house, looking after me. Plus it’s to get her to pay attention to ME and not the olds papers that came while she was gone.

    You are very brave: good to see you exploring more of your house.

    Your friend Dinah

    • waving paw to Dinah…HI!! and I so know what you mean…course I don’t get too close to even Mom…and Dad, well he is nice, feeds me…but that is well…ummmm…(whispers behind paw…shhhh..can you keep a secret???…well, I haven’t said much, but I have had a little ummmm…regression since we moved…I am sort of more scared of Dad again…and I know he feels so bummed…but I don’t even know why…sigh) Ahem…ok, then thanks for coming by Dinah, catch’ya later, paw pats, Savannah

  14. Awww, Savannah- you really do love your Mom, don’t you? That chair looks quite comfy and warm to us – enjoy.

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

    • yeah, I do love my Mom…but Dad is really special too, I am just so afraid of men in general and when I need my claws trimmed, like every 5 weeks, Dad is the one who has to scruff me, then Mom clips, I never scratch or growl, but I am so terrified of being held by humans, that Dad then suffers from my fear of him for another month, then we repeat the whole process, so Dad never gets a break…I feel so badly.. but Mom can’t hold me tight enough by herself…you see…I am pretty..ummm…well, “built” for a ladycat…like I must have been a ladycat weight lifter in another life…

  15. Love how you kept one eye slightly open to keep track of your Mom!

  16. Mowzers, Savvy! You’re so amazingly organized! We’re impressed by your list!

  17. Hey Savvy, Your Champion here.

    I’m SOOOOOO proud of you… so many new accomplishments, OMD, you are making leaps and bounds of progress…

    Glad you reconnected with Mom and Dad after 9875487408924650808 minutes apart… looks like they missed you as much as you missed them!

  19. WHOA! Just look at your super duper braveyness!

    PS Your header is F.A.B. (Feline And Beautiful)

    • awwww…what a great play on acronym (VBP)!! I am really proud to have something for the holiday. And yes, scritches are magical for sure. BTW, tell Mom Janey she can come by and window shop anytime she wants at my former shelter, Kitty Corner…we have some really cool cats and adoptions are really slow right now…sad ears

  20. Looks like you’ve got it all covered, Savvy!!!

    • oh my now Austin, I still have lots m ore to go, but I am making some progress…(shhhh…more another time about some regression behaviors we don’t know what to do about…like I am again very scared of Dad….sigh…makes us all sad)

  21. Isn’t it fun to learn new things? We are so proud of you, Miss Savvy!

  22. heya Sav! Way to be so courageous!
    We’ve got the first draft of the interview done. It’s kind of hard for us – it brings up a lot of emotions. So we’re getting there – but it’s tough sledding. So to speak.
    Ha roo!
    Play bows,
    Zim

    • ohhh…reaches over and give Zimmerz a scritch on his ear, cuddle under his chin…and a soft stroke of paw for Dave, sorry guys…but your story could help others consider adopting a Sibe. Impawtant cuz you know Sibes end up in shelters a lot, either they run and get lost or people dont realize what your REAL SELF is all about…thank you for doing this, paw pats, Savvy
