  1. I know I’m late! But I’m very glad Leo found a furrever castle. 😉

  2. That is the best happy dance from any kitty we have seen anywhere in the entire universe! Leo looks a little grumpy in his photo, but it is sure nice that he is healthy and has his very own castle. Hope Dad Dave lets us know what he’s up to these days. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. Sorry I’m late. We read this about 1 a.m. and TW was too tired to comment. Those garden ics are lovely. TW loved the last one. On the iPawd, she thought the yellow hibiscus was something else. Old eyes.

    Glad you like the CD. Sorry you had to wait for it. We had it made but TW couldn’t haul her butt to the P.O.

    You don’t have rent control in SF? When the peeps owned their house, they could only raise the rent 4% a year, while taxes when up 20%, which is why they sold. If the landlord didn’t live in the building, it was rent controlled. TW always jokes that when they turn 65, they’ll just move across the street into the Senior Center. Heh heh. The mayor even told them he’d get them in without waiting.

    • oh purrlease…you are gonna have to wait for the 3 way tunnel until Mom can find a cheap way to send it…LOL ANd nope not rent control in Walnut Creek. bummer…we have to wait and see…Mom and Dad talked about just moving into a small apt but they don’t wanna do that just yet as they can still go to the gym…LMFTO

  5. I hope you can stay, your garden is so pretty and would hate for you to go through the stress of moving again xx

  6. Just started following you through Bloglovin. Have a lovely weekend.

  7. You garden looks very nice, we are crossing our paws you get to stay. ~Scylla & Family

  9. Real bummer about the rent 😦 Hope you find somewhere equally lovely.

  10. Well Yay for all the good news And BOOO for the maybe bad news!xx Speedy

    I am tap-tap-tapping my paw for Leo, Lord of the Manor’s, blogosphere debut! He looks very regal 😉 I can’t wait to see him with his whole “ruff” grown in. And I love your prancing pony dance, my sweet!

  12. Mags Corner on said:

    Sweet Savannah we are so happy for Leo. We love seeing you do your happy dance…you are an amazing dancer. We are happy to hear the results was good from sweet MJ’s test and we hope she gets her loving forever home real soon now. Hugs and nose kisses

  13. What? Change your own castle again!!!??? Not fair! But maybe the next place will be even better…

    Good news about MJ! We have a post all typed (in Mommy’s head) about our Fuzzy, whenever you’re ready.

  14. Oh man, Savvy! So much to be thankful for. We know Leo is gonna do well in his new castle. But what’s this we hear YOU and your peeps might hafta find a new castle?? Oh, that’s no fun. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

  15. It’s all good news …. well is it? What’s this about you having to move? :((

  16. Aw man, that’s terrible that you may have to move, Savvy. 😦 I wish there was some way you could work things out so you did not have to.

    • we just have to wait a few days until they decide how much they will raise our rent. If we can afford it we will stay but they promised us two months ago we would have same rent, for at least one more year maybe even a two year lease. We were excited and stopped looking…now there are fewer places for us to chose from if we do have to move; paws crossed we don’t

  17. We’re so happy for Leo and for MJ’s good report! We are a little confused about you needing to move? We thought you just moved to this place?

    • we moved Sept 1 last year, but we are renting (leasing). We do not own this nice town home so the owner can increase what we pay per month when we renew our contract for another year. hope not, but she has said she most likely will after promising two months ago that we would have another year at same price. paw crossed we will be Ok. We are not young and moving is costly and a lot of work…sigh…I am sure all will be fine

  18. Woooowoooooooos for all of yooowoowoooo! Ku

  19. That’s lots of good news today Savvy and I love your happy dance…I’m thankful we all have good things to share

  20. Sounds like it is super busy in your house. Whee are sad that you have to move, our hoomans said they might need to move soon because our house is quite little and the little hoomans have grown a lot.

    *huggles to you and your hoomans*

    YAY for the CD and YAY for the pawsome video !
    Than for last i save my BOOOOOO for your landlord that is going to raise your rent !

  23. I was so glad as I read about MJ – I hope she will find her furever home now and a wonderful furmily. I like your garden, specially the yellow hibiscus – ours are all red or pink here – no idea why :o)

    • oh we have a red one too, it just is not blooming as much…not pink though. Nothing new has turned up in a couple of weeks, I think Mom is going to do some “trimming” so some of those roses will bloom more, paw hugs

    Leo has obviously been interrupted in important work to pose for the paparazzi who must be (excuse my French) dogging his tail …. Great news about MJ, but sad news about your perhaps having to move. Hope it is not too far away so my housekeeper can still visit you and your folks. Your friend Savannah, RWB (reader without blog.)

  25. YAY on MJ’s bloodwork! Enjoy your CD & we hope MJ finds her forever home soon!


  26. MJ’s blood tests are good??
    Now lets all send out purrayers for the right furever peeps for Mary.

    The heat wave that swept the States sure didn’t help the gardens any. Your garden pictures are still lovely though. Next year our HuMom needs to get off her butt and improve our garden. In years past we’ve had hanging baskets of different colored fuchsia on the front and back porches and planted impatiens in the shaded flower beds. Of course HuMom just followed the GrandHuMom’s directions so maybe she can blame her mom for the lack of flowers this year.

    We hope your landlady changes her mind about the rent when she realizes she’ll have to find new tenants. Finding people who treat your property like it is their own is difficult. Hopefully she’ll see having you and the ‘rents stay makes good financial sense.

    We are glad you have your castle back and your “servents” as well. Plus, Leo has his own now. You must be very proud of your parents. They’ve really gone above and beyond. They are an inspiration to cat lovers everywhere.

  28. Oh no! That’s a shame you may have to move but hopefully the new bird tv will be even better! There’s always a silver lining! =^.^=

  29. We’re sorry to hear that you may have to move. That kind of adventure is stressful, but we are sure your mom and dad will find a place with good bird TV for you.

    Pee Ess… we saw your comment on One Eye on the Future, and we would like to contribute to a hope chest for Ray Charles and Rachel, so if you talk to them about how you organized one for MJ, please let us know.

  30. Moving? That can be exciting and fun. It would be sad to leave the garden, though. Maybe you’ll stay….

    Love and licks,

  31. Oh Savvy I’m sorry you’re going to have to move – I know you’ve loved watching the birds and having such a beautiful garden there plus all the great views out the windows! I bet you can find another place that’s just as nice. Changes aren’t ever fun BUT I remember when you moved there your parents were very careful that you felt safe and secure the whole time……’re in good hands Savvy!!! I’m happy Leo’s in his new home and that MJ is getting ready to find hers. Things are pretty happy in blogville for now….

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • we don’t know for sure yet Sammy…hope not.And no garden will be as pretty as this one in a rental, we just lucked out. And Leo is really settling in; we get daily updates from him and Dad Dave…we hear their may even be a ….(shhh..lookes over shoulder…) name in the works..shhhh

  32. I am sorry to hear you may have to move, we both send you a big hug!

  33. P.S I forgot to say how beautiful the flowers are and what a shame you may have to find new digs ..goodness such a busy year for you all !

  34. The Society of Feline Gardeners is an awesome group! I have nowhere to garden, but I get my fix just looking at your photos.

  35. Oh Savvy we are all so happy for Leo and can’t wait to get an update and to know that MJ has good bloods come back is FANTASTIC news and to get a special cd from your dear friend is just the icing on your kitty cake! Have a great relaxed day chillaxing and purring.Hugs and love Fozziemum xxx

  36. So sad to hear that the three of you have to move. Maybe better then, that Leo is not with you anymore so they only have to handle ONE panicky cat when moving!

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
