Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Caturday and My First Furrever Christmas Tree

Hiya! Savannah Here!

Several of you asked to see my first ever Christmas tree in my now furrever home.  Last Christmas, I was still a foster kitty with then “Foster Mom” and “Foster Dad” (FM and FD in my earlier posts).  So, I mostly didn’t get the whole tree thing, and they had their, now our, god-daughter for Christmas visiting and then some other people over for Christmas dinner, so I stayed mostly hidden.


You saw me doing my patrol and inspection of the empty tree earlier…I had to make sure it was ready for decorating.  I declared it was safe, stable and pawsome!

So we decorated Mom and Dad decorated the tree finally!

…hmmm…what does it smell like now that it is decorated??…

ct 1

…oh!!! Look!!!…prezzies!!!…wonder if they smell too??…

ct 2

…nope, the prezzies don’t smell…wonder why?…maybe if I check behind this one…

ct 3

…nope, maybe on this side…

ct 4

…hmmm…no smell on the prezzies…maybe I outta sniff the tree again…

ct 5

…shhhh…I’ll just try a teeny nibble…don’t tell Mom or Dad!…

ct 6

…WHAT???!!!…(who didn’t whisper like I asked??…which one of my furriends ratted me out???)…no, no Mom…not me…I didn’t bitey bite the tree…

ct 7

…harumppfff…thanks lots guys!…I got caught…mabe if I go behind the tree…

ct 8

…naw, now both Dad AND Mom are watching me like hawks!…

ct 9

…MOUSES!…might as well leave…

ct 10

After my inspecition and tasting of the tree…oh yeah, I forgot to tell you…the prezzies don’t smell because there is NOTHING in them…Mom just wanted to make my tree more photographic for my post today…Thanks Mom! (you can bigify the tree if you want to see the pretty ornaments better)

ct 11

And guess what???…I found a special spot just for me…I like to get back here for a bit of contemplation (VBP)…and Mom bought the tree skirt JUST FOR ME! It is like all soft and poofy…nice!

My wish is for every cat and dog to have a first furrever holiday symbol to call their very own like I do this year.

I have some other stuff to share with you tomorrow, but I didn’t want to overwhelm (vocab buidling project VBP) you today.

Paw Pats, Savannah

  4. Savvy your tree looks bootiful! It looks a lot like ours does….I’ll have some pix of ours on my bloggy tomorrow since my parents FINALLY got it up and decorated today. We don’t have any prezzies under it yet BUT I napped under it all afternoon – I’m glad you’re enjoying your first ever tree and like me, the cozy feeling of lying UNDER it and just looking at how pretty it is!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  5. Looks like you and the tree are going to be good friends. 🙂 It’s a great place to think contemplate. Our cats always loved being under the tree.

    You asked about Brut’s aggression with dogs, we didn’t know it when we got him as a puppy at six weeks, but he had a bad upbringing with the breeder and has been that way ever since. So we have been working with him as much as possible to help understand and change his behavior. It’s taken some time, but we are slowly making progress.

    Thanks for asking.

    Pee. S. Brut isn’t a purebred Husky he also has Chow and Malamute in him.

    Your tree is BEAUTIFUL! So very, very pretty. Come on over to my blog later and you can pick up a star for it. That’s right… I’m awardin’ you with the Blogger of the Year award.

    Your tree is beautiful Savannah! And you look so lovely underneath. I know you said that you couldn’t climb it because it’s artificial, but that never stops our resident numbskull. That’s right, Hitch makes a couple of attempt at getting to the top of our pre-lite Christmas tree every year. That’s why huMom and our boy/man wait a week between putting it up and decorating it. Got to let George of the Jungle have a shot first. YOUR tree is truly beautiful though. And it will stay that way because no one’s testing all the branches to see if they’ll hold a cat size ornament. A dumbbell ! Oh, here he comes. *what? I’m almost done, you can post tomorrow. Oh, I just said she has a nice tree.*. I’m back, but I better sign off now,
    Purrs to you!

  8. Gorgeous tree Savvy *sad ears* huMum won’t have a tree as she says I’m too destructive … her punishment shall be mice presents all over our bed *giggles*

  9. Hey Savvy, Your Champion here. Hi Miss Linda.

    I assure you I was not the rat! Do be careful about the bitey bite stuff, don’t want my charge getting sick.

    What a beautiful tree, and even more special because it is YOUR first as a furever family member. 🙂 We wondered whether the boxes were for decoration… they are too pretty to open!

    Enjoy your contemplation time. Mom just pointed out a rainbow outside our window, so we shall do the same. 🙂

  10. Oh that’s a wonderful tree – the best for the first furrever christmas ;o) …oh you have eskimo-ornaments on your tree – thats beautiful ;o)

    We usually has lots of Krissymouse decorations but we has not hadded a live tree since I comed here. We do have lots of other fun stuffs though and usually I am a Really Good Boy and don’t mess with it. Usually. We’ll have to see.

    Your tree is very beauteous, though not as beauteous as YOU of course. Also: It is a Kitty’s right to climb up the center trunk of a Krissymouse tree. Just so’s you know.

    • well, Spitty, first, thank you and the human for the compliments about my first furrever chrismouse tree. ANd I will not be climbing that tree because it would hurt…it is NOT REAL! So the “trunk” is hard and stickery…nope…I am happy just hangin’ out under it…paw pats, Savannah

  13. Fine looking tree there Savannah! 🙂

    – Brother Henry

    • OH, waving paw…hi Bro’ Henry! How is Leader Otis??? I worry he may be doing too much…he needs to stay down and let his leggie heal…are you and Bro Oliver and Thomas making sure he is safe?? And make sure the Guardians don’t let him near those nip bananas…not good mixed with his pain meds, just sayin’…Paw pats, Savannah

    What a beautiful tree! Our mom doesn’t think she’s going to put one out this year because we’re still adolescent kitties. Whatever that means!

  16. Your tree is absolutely lovely. It’s great that your kitteh tree is next to it so that you can lounge on it and look at the lights. Enjoy your furever tree, pretty Savannah. xoxo

  17. Savannah your furever tree is just gorgeous and we hope that Santa puts LOTS AND LOTS of goodies under it for you! We are certain that he will!!! Your tree is beautiful!

  18. Savvy, we all have drippy whiskers, but they are tears of happiness…

    • oh Miss Tricia, and all the KL kitties, thank you for finding joy in my own joy…this is a special holiday for me, Mom and Dad…we keep hearing the song from the movie Dad and Mom love called Bird Cage…”we are f-a-m-i-l-y!!” woot, woot!

  19. Oh Savannah, your tree is just beautiful, and how magical that it becomes a trio when the lights are twinkling! Mom and Dad did a great job decorating, and you are doing super as the inspector.

    What a gorgeous Cat Toy tree yous has! me purrticularly likes to bat the low hanging toys! And, it sets off your gorgeous white bib!

  21. What a gorgeous tree. Whee agree with Zena. You should climb it and be the angel ornament on the top! 🙂

    Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil

  22. Can you climb to the top of your tree Savvy? I think you’d make a great ornament up there.
    Your tree does look beautiful and I like the way it’s reflected in the large doors. The Producer always says she isn’t going to do anything and then finally will get around to putting a tree up. Not sure what Raffles will do with it though, he likes gardening and helps The Director ‘prune’ the trees outside.
    I suspect a few ornaments might ‘die’ this year 🙂

  23. Beautiful tree Savvy! We don’t think a tiny nibble is going to hurt it. Much.. hee hee

  24. Sparkle on said:

    What an awesome tree, and by some strange coincidence, I have the very same Christmas wish as you do!

    • good wish to have Sparkle. Some lady stopped at my former small shelter yesterday, volunteer opened door to see what she wanted, she literally threw a small kitten over her head and ran away. We don’t take surrendered cats, only pull from kill shelter. but we broke rules and kept this poor kitten. Volunteer was fast and caught it before it hit a wall…peeps are cruel and stoopid sometimes

  25. Make sure you don’t get caught peeking at the packages!
    Play bows,

  26. What a beautiful tree! We get a real one and I’ve never touched it. Peeps are getting it next weekend. I can’t wait to smell it.

  27. What a perfect tree for your first Christmas with your folks. We were going to ask about when you joined the family but just read that you are about to celebrate some awesome milestones. We guess you may have a few things planned to mark them and look forward to helping you celebrate 😀

    • Hi Miss Ann! Mom has been starting to think how to celebrate my Got’cha Day Jan 3. I think we may ask some of my blog and Twitter furriends over for a pawty with some nom noms and stuff. And we also have our first blogiversary looming in the early months of 2013. February 7 was my first ever post. It is late where you are Miss Ann, go to bed and sleep nice and warm. Paw pats, Savannah

  28. What a lovely tree Savvy. I like you hidey spot, perfect place to keep an eye on the pressies!

  29. What a lovely forever tree, when those prezzies smell they will even be funner.

    • Hi Muffy and company! Thanks for stopping by. Those prezzies won’t ever smell because we don’t give gifts to each other here. Well, Dad and Mom told me I will get my stocking stuffed for sure. But Mom and Dad stopped gifting each other and family ’bout 20 years ago. They felt they had all they needed, and family was fine too…so they asked family to stop sending gifts and either donate or use for self. Mom and Dad do their gifting by donating as much as they would have spent on all those gifts to a different charity each Christmas. Then cards get sent to family and friends to tell them a donation was made in their names. We think it is a cool way to show our appreciation for each other and family and close friends. So, no smellie prezzies under our tree…but now my stocking, that’s a whole other story MOL

      • We feel the same way, but the kids still desire a little something, so we have continued the personal giving for them. I think your donation suggestion in your cards is absolutely the perfect for the season. But the animal stockings, well, SantaPaws still fills those, just because…
