Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

My First Night Before Christmas…


Well, as most of you know…at Christmas time last year I had only been with Mom and Dad for about 3 weeks and I was still their “Foster Cat”…and I spent a lot of time UTB back then AND Mom and Dad didn’t think they wanted a full time cat furramily member…so I didn’t have much interest in the Christmas tree.


I know this is my furrever home.  My confidence keeps growing and I knew the Christmas tree was MY OUR tree…so first, I knew there were four ‘pretend’ prezzies under the tree…for my photo shoots and stuff, remember?… Mom and Dad don’t gift so I figured that was that, and no problem…really…

Well…all of a sudden stuff appeared under my our tree that had not been there before…and this year, I was not afraid of the tree!…so I checked the new stuff out…

…hmmmm…look at that…something new….

nite before 7

….oh…there’s more…nice paper…wonder if I can have a sniff…

nite before 8

…ummm…better make sure this is still my our tree…

nite before 9

…what’s that on the other side…MEOWSER!…this one is big!…

nite before 1

…now that’s an interesting smell…sniff, sniff…

nite before 2

…maybe I can tell more if I get a teensy bit closer…sniff, sniff…this underside is interesting…

nite before 3

…I gotta get under it to get a better whiff…snuffle, snuffle…kerchoo!!!..wipes nose with paw, sorry…

nite before 4

…well, I wonder who all those prezzies are for…If any are for me, then I need to get my claws ready…

nite before 5

…and once more from the other direction…gets those claws sharpened from a different angle…

nite before 6

…oh!  Look up there on the mantle…there’s stuff in my stocking!…

nite before 10

What Mom ???…what do you mean “wait”????

Mouses!!!…sometimes Mom and Dad can be so intense (VBP)…sheesh…don’t you just hate it when they use that word “WAIT”???  Na’mean???

That was my first exploration of my our tree on the night before Christmas…

Paw pats, Savannah

    Well!! Hey–why are you keeping us in suspense??? I want to KNOW what was inside those packages, darn it!

    I hope you had a snug and cozy Christmas. The Human said it was POURING in the Santa Cruz mountains where she was for a couple of days.

    • Hey Spitty! It poured on Mom and Dad in Burlingame for their xmas dinner. And the only reason we had to wait was ‘cuz I would not even take a tiny “glance” at the packages…all this is so new to me…but I think I am gonna like it!!!

    Hi Savannah? We are so glad you seem to be enjoying your first Christmas Eve in your furever home. We enjoyed your Boxing Day photo over at The Cult of Otis too. You seem very confident in these pictures which HuMom is sure makes your Mom and Dad really happy. We are also excited to see you using your scratcher. It’s a bummer when the humans say wait but it’s better than NO! Hitch hears that more than me. Yesterday he moved all the wash clothes from the shelf in the upstairs bathroom to his basket in the hallway. Why he wanted 15 wash clothes I don’t know. Seems like a hand towel would’ve been easier. Silly boy cat! We hope you got everything you wished for.
    Purrs to you,
    Mistletoe & Hitch

  17. We hope you got very spoilt as we did big time xxx

  18. Well Savvy, if they weren’t all for you, they should have been!! xx

  19. I bet those presents were all for you! They should have been! After all they were under YOUR tree 😉

  20. maxwellnfaraday on said:
