Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Test Driving My Prezzie…


I promised to show you my test drive of my new scratcher…that’s what was in that humongous box sent to me by Mistletoe and Hitch!  If you don’t  know Mistletoe, you can meet here by clicking HERE…she is a member of the Real Rescue Cats Are Talking Club!!

Anyways, not to digress (VBP)…here is how I approached my first tryout on this big bad scratcher…(I still had my glorious long, sharp claws at this point…they were whacked away days later…thanks lots Mom and Dad…like NOT!)

…first, the sniff test…this was done pre-shipping to me…Hitch covered the shipping sniff test…

Sorry if the video is a bit dark, but I think you can see…this scratcher is here to stay!!  And yes, that is Mom talkin’ in the background like always…she knows I needed a little encouragement to get going…

    WOW! That’s like the neatest lookin’ scratcher EVER! I’ve never seen one that looked so neat. Not ever! Bet you’re gonna have tonnes and tonnes of fun givin’ that the ol’ one-two… if you know what I mean. You’ll be able to sharpen up those claws again… just like you like ’em.

    • Hey Nissy!! I do like my claws nice and sharp for sure. I hope you know that my Champion and BCFF (best canine furriend furrever) Jetty, from Hey, It’s Jet Here gave you an award after I sent him over to read your incredible post yesterday…time warps, regression theory and an ginger cat sleeping in the agapanthus all in one post…pawsome!

  6. Wow, does that look like fun! I think I’d love one of those.
    Play bows,

    FaRADaY: Oh get over it Allie. Lookit the PAWSOME scratcher!

    • oh thanks for understanding Allie…whispers behind paw…boys don’t understand stuff like that cuz they call each other names all the time…If you get tired of Faraday sometimes, you just hop in a cat tunnel and teleport over to my Fast Leopard Teleport Tunnel…we can hang out, purrrs Savvy

  8. That looks like so much fun! Never seen anything like that before!

  9. That’s a deluxe version if ever we saw one!

  10. Hee hee that looks fab! Your so lucky that you got a new present before Christmas!!

  11. Oh my the boys would love that 🙂 need to get them one xx

  12. What a great prezzie, Savannah. There will be lots of fun to be had on that!

    That looks like such a fun scratching post! Now all you need to do is spray it with some catnip 😉

  15. Oh my gosh, that is so awesome! I agree with your mom, you are so special Savannah! I love that she calls you Savanna Banana!

    That’s a pretty pawsome present all right! I LOVES to claw my scratchers but I am a pretty good boy about the furniture. We sorta have a deal–I get good scratchers and lots of ’em, I leave the furniture alone. It’s a win-win! XOXOXOX

  17. What a great pressie – we think you like it too, Savanah. We thought maybe you didn’t have claws, how do you manage not to get them caught in that pretty blue afghan that the Momster loves so much?

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

    • Dad scruffs me and Mom trims my claws about every 5 weeks…I do not allow them to pick me up…so it is always stressful for all of us…poor Dad has to always be the bad guys ‘cuz Mom can’t hold me AND trim…she says it was easier trimming 3 Sibes every month than one of me!

  18. Oh my goodness, that is some cool scratcher, and look at you go!!!!!

  19. FUNNNNNNNNN XX 🙂 and if you need any help with the youtube thing – let me know – sent you a reply xo
    lots of love xx

    • Thank you Miss Cat. You might enjoy my Real Rescue Cats and Dogs Are Talking series. I did my last Rescue Dog Tuesday this week. I have been doing one cat and one dog rescue interview, all adults, since August. Maybe someday you might think about doing a video of all 10 and write your beautiful piano music to go along with it. Let me know if you ever want to give it a try. They are all pawsome adult rescue stories told by the cats and dogs them selves. I will let you know how I do with You Tube, paw pats and purrs, Savannah

  20. That’s a great scratcher. You’re scratching in style, for sure.

    Don’t be too embarrassed about the Banana thing. You should hear some of the silly things that the humans call us. If we weren’t covered in fur, you would see us blushing when they start using the silly names. They only use the silly names because they love us…. we think! Your mom is obviously crazy about you, too.

  21. Looks like it really met with your approval Savannah you’re going to have loads of fun with that. Have a great Christmas

  23. That’s a great present. You’ll be able to scratch as much as you please!

  24. Oh yeah! That scratcher looks awesome! I bet you will get a lot of scratchin’ done!

  25. Yes,you are so special. I never got to like the cardboard scratchers. Peeps bought me a couple that went to the shelter. I’m glad you like yours. It looks like a good one.

  26. What a cool prezzie! You are special Savannah (love the nickname “Banana”). Motor Mommy just calls me “Sundae girl” or “Sundae Baby”. Thanks for the video – cool!
    Love, Sundae

    Yo! Savannah! We is really glad you like your scratcher! Mistletoe doesn’t get too upset getting her daggers blunted but I hates it! Only Tiger hates it more. That dude’s crazy! He once managed to leave the vet tech bleeding from her head! They had him all wrapped up….*what? Oh, yeah ok*. HuMom says that a story for another day. Anyways if you use the scratcher …and not the sofa….you can keep your weapons in sharp shape and your Moms and Dads won’t haves to mess with’em as much. There’s 4 of us so HuMom’s mom says we gots more cardboard than a box factory. I’d like to explore a box factory….nothin’ but boxes for miles an miles. Anyways we are glad youz likes it. I saw you sniffin’ it, could you smells me? I hada make sure the HuMom was packin it right. So you can think of me…I, um, I mean us, when you are workin out your new scratcher. (Gleeful laughter from Mistletoe while the tips of Hitch’s ears turn pink) well, um we, yeah, we gotta go…
    Purrs to you and all that,
