Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

IT’S HERE!!!…My Very First Gotcha Day…




Oh Cat!!! I am so, so, so excited!!!  I am ready to PAWTY!!

Mom has been working like crazy, furriends have given us a helping hand and even Dad got into the act to make sure my First Gotcha Day celebration is fun, fun, fun!!!


 I asked Mom and Dad if I could have a COMMENTATHON as my Gotcha Day prezzie and they said “Sure, Savannah Banana, what ever you want sweetie”…(wrapped around my little paws)

Mom said “I will donate, from my allowance for January, $.5o cents USD for EVERY COMMENT FROM ONE VISITOR…then last night Dad said “I will see your $.50 cents and raise you $.25 cents USD…making it $.75 cents USD”!  What a Dad!!!

So that’s it…leave a comment…and hang out and pawty, pawty, pawty…(multiple member furramilies can only comment once, not for each furramily member…no spiking the comments Mollie and Alfie, Katnip Lounge, Poupounette or any of you guys with lots of furramily members…I need for Dad and Mom to have money left for my kibble and fancy feast!!)


Meowgaritas (you are in California!!)
meowgaritas with nip

Carrotinis (for my Rabbit and Piggie furriends)

SQUEEEEE!!!!!…I can’t believe it!!! My very brave furriend NYLABLUE just arrived!!! She was one of my pawsome Real Rescue Cats Are Talking: Life Changing Interviews With Savannah!!!!


MOUSES!!! (that’s what my  furriend Nissy says…)…I don’t think my FIRST EVER GOTCHA PAWTY could be any better…ummm…’scuse me…(pads off to wipe leaky eyes…wipes nose on Dad’s hand)…This has just been great…this adult shelter rescue cat NEVER expected to have this life…I am so honored by efurryone’s thoughtfulness and hope I can make a difference for adult cat and dog rescues everywhere someday.

Paw Pats, Savannah

  1. I wish I’d been around on the day to sample some of the food you so thoughtfully prepared. It sounds absolutely delicious! I’m glad you had such a good time.
    You received some really beautiful cards. Very best wishes for the year ahead.

    • hiya clowie! I am so purrleased you could stop by to see all the wonderful cards and badges furriends sent me and made for me to post on my side bar, we haven’t even done THAT yet! We are still playing catch up big time since that post and the one on Monday for the Grand Total…we did a cross post with us and Katnip Lounge so readers would go back and forth between us, fun, but lots of work with all the “links”…ugh

  2. Miss Savvy! We’re so sorry we missed your party! The kid is going to be inconsolable when I tell her. The human got very sick and we haven’t been online at all since Christmas.

    Hope you had a wonderful day!

Wow–what a BASH! I’ll just go get a Meowgarita and a fish taco and mix and mingle with all the ladyca—-uh, all the nice kitties over there around the bar! This is the best Gotcha Day Pawty efur! Savannah, You has been a true Bright Light of the Blogosphere this year and I love having you so close by, even though we mostly just meow sweetly across the Bay–we do gaze up at the same foggy sky and hear the same blasts of the foghorns! So romantic, eh?? I fink your Pawty waz a HUGE success! Lots of XOXOXOXOXO to you and your Mommy and Daddy too!

  15. Happy Gotcha Day from all my rescue babies Lizzy, TJ and Tank!!!! Our first time to visit….what fun!!!

And we haven’t completed counting yet, but so far, we had 62 comments, not counting My replies…WP always ‘spikes’ the comment number by adding in the blogger’s replies to the comments made. I said furriends could have until 12pm PDT…so we still have about 3+ hours to go. I will let you know the FINAL account…then we can do a post TOGETHER if you want about the “I’ll see your 75 cents and raise you”…you are all very kind, and MIss Trish…wait, Mom?…are you OK?…awwww…more leaky eyes…anyways, thanks so much Miss Trish, Mr Scott and all of KL…no wonder you guys ROCK like SOCKS!!!

    Happy Gotcha Day Savannah! What a fabulous Pawty! Wishing you lots of love and more fun in 2013!!! Nose kisses sweetie:)

  18. Happy gotcha day, Savannah! I’ll bet your mom and dad are reeeeeeeeeeeely glad you got them —- bringing lots of warmth, humor, and love into their drab and dull elderly years! I hope it is ok that I have taken a (small) lick of all your refreshments (well, not the salad — poor bunnies and piggies having to eat all that greenery.) Everything is really tasty. I think I will suggest to my housekeeper that she make all of those items every day for me. I like the transport tunnel too, although it was so fast that I had to hide for a while after I arrived just so I could calm down. All the best on your special day, from your friend Dinah.

    • well Miss Dinah!! You finally got that ‘housekeeper’ to go to sleep…I know, I know, they have to take their time…but those ‘older peeps’ need to be tucked in before we cats can PAWTY!!!…(looks over shoulder….shhhhh…Dinah….can I come to your place when your housekeeper comes to my place? we can do a house trashing at our place…what’d ya think???…send me a coded email…)

  41. Happy Gotcha Day!!!

  42. HAPPY GOTCHA DAY from stephan and cassie and buster and champ. We r all rescues to and love our owners so much. We read yor email everyday keep up the good work.

    • OH MY CAT!! You are a silent reader/visitor!!! How cool you stopped this time to comment…kaching!..another $.75 cents!! Do you have a blog? If not, you might want to hook up with Mistletoe and Hitch and their mom Miss Dorothy, they started a Readers Without Blogs Society RWB…and they visit blogs all the time, and just put those initials after their comment and efurryone knows they don’t have a blog so we don’t try to search for them!!! Thank you, thank you for coming over!!

  43. Hi Savannah,
    Congratulations on your 1st Gotcha Day! I’m really happy for you that you found such great humans and that you’re feeling so well and happy there. And give your humans my heartfelt thanks for taking so good care of you.
    Here, we’ll have to celebrate a few “gotcha days” during the year: in/around May for our Zsa Zsa, Frankie and Mr. Pickwick, and in August/September for our little Sister Fidelma. Well, and not to forget our sweet Oprah, too. I’ll have to look up her “gotcha day” so. These were all adopted at a very young age. And then there are Bixby and Pepper, who just wandered by at an older age and made us adopt them. We don’t know really when it was the first time they showed up around the house, so we’ll simply set a day as their “adoption day”.
    Best regards, have fun, and enjoy the day,
    Pit and his four-legged friends

  44. Happy Gotcha Day!! Enjoy your special day and here’s to many more!

  64. Happy Gotcha Day beautiful Savannah! Ya done good girl and this is a very special day for you, your Mom & Dad. Have a terrific day sweet one!

    • Hey Brian…I know you and your huFamily have your own concerns at this time, so thank you ever so much for coming around to celebrate my special day…peeEss when Mr Terry had time, can he tell Mom how he visits 400 bloggy posts each day???…Mom sort’a like flooped over when she read that…

  65. Happy gotcha day! We’re happy that you’re such a lucky cat. And you share a gotcha day with Newton, which is pretty cool!

    • I know I do…high paws Newton…Mom says we are “caprikorns”…sound weird…but there you go, she is human, poor thing…so very purrleased to have met you all with Sweet Purrfections Secret Paws this year…come on in, have some noms…

  66. Oh Savannah! You are such a fortunate kitty, and you have come so far in this past year. Hats off to you and to mom and dad!!! Happy Gotcha Day!

    • Hey Rumpy!, DeDe, June Buggie, Hissy Fit Jones and all…yes, I am a very fortunate adult rescue cat, without my former shelter I would have been destroyed and without Mom and Dad showing up, even that shelter would have placed me in a sanctuary for the “unadoptable/unsocial”…humans have much more to learn about promoting adult rescue….cats, and dogs…just IMHFO…Savvy

  67. Happy gotcha day and may you have many more of them.
