Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Friday Frolics…It’s My Second Gotcha Day!


It’s here, it’s finally here…


I know my pawty is not the HUMONGOUS spread and all the action I had last year…but I told Mom Linda and Dad Peter…I understand…they are bizzy, bizzy packing and stuff…

Here are some photos Mom Linda and I put together to help us both remember (she is like old as dirt…just sayin’...) how very special our year has been and how much more progress I have made…including offering a healing space for “Foster Leo” who became “Cuzin Leo” (peeEss Dad Dave had been a bit under the weather and can’t post right now…just saying’…)…and now “Foster to Adopt Sisfur Sage”…

…and the two “extra” kitties who have rocked my world this year…we think in a good way


BUT…I did manage to throw together some drinks and some noms…so come on in and have a slurp and a bite…

I had to re-make the same cakes I had last year…so hope you don’t mind…we didn’t know how to create new ones…

And I have made sure we have some of the popular activities from last year’s First Blogiversary Pawty bash…but I added one new thing…heh…heh…

Wait for it…wait for it…GO!!

Cathy Keisha DJ’ing the Dance Floor

pawty dance floor


And just like any typical dance floor…there is Mollie…on the left…just waiting for Easy or Rumpy to get their courage up to go ask her to dance!…sheeesh….men!!  Of course my bloggin’ pal Nissy and I are still dancing the day away to CK’s tunes!! and in the back ground you can see my buddy from The Kitty Platoon, Carl Bob…just doing his own thing…

And I received some pawsome cards from furriends..from Texas

…and here are more…from Sammy…and *very embarrassed ears*…another from furriends I do not recognize the blog as they must be new to me…(click to bigify…and I cannot read the names on the second card very well…so sorry)

…and one more from my bestie in Ontario, Canada…Nylablue…

NB card

    Hmmm, we’re both kitties and woofies here, but if we have to make a choice, guess we’d like to try the 3 way tunnel.

    Jan says it is hard to focus sometimes. She claims she feels like a chicken running without a head. We can’t figure out what that means.

  22. Happy gotcha day my kitteh furiend!!! Pawty like a huskerboo!

    Happy Gotcha Day. The second card was from us, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S). It was our Mom’s first attempt at making that kind of card. She should have put the names in a darker font. Oh well, we hope you have a good Gotcha Day. Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

    We would like to be entered in the kitty giveaway, please.

  39. Happy Gotcha Day!!!!!! The noms are delicious. We loved your cakes last year and are glad to see they made a reappearance. MOL when Mommy was little she liked doll cakes so much she had them every year. Sometimes their dressed did change color, so you could tell it was a new cake. We are going to opt for the dog toy if we wins. Fenris destroys toys so he needs some new ones. And Mollie Fenris wants to know if you would like to dance?

    How are things going with sister Sage? Hope things are improving sisters can be lots of fun. ~Scylla & Family

  46. Happy Gotcha Day, Savvy. Wow, what a Pawty. The shrrimps and drrinks are delicious…now let’s dance 🙂 Extra Pawkisses for you 🙂

  47. A BIG happy gotcha day to you, Savvy! I am so glad you are here to help less fortunate kitties – I wish I could clone you, with all the help you do!

  48. Happy finding a forever home-anniversary – and I would like to see more of your adventures with this savage sage-kid and how she learns more respect for your needs and you learn more courage to defend your needs!
    No entry for the prizes, though – my kitties do not like tunnels (there is still one lying in this room – unused) and I do not have a dog …

  49. Happy Gotcha Day Savvy! It’s great to see how far you’ve come and even the other kitties you’ve helped along the way

    Have fantastic Friday

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

    ps. whee are glad there are veggies for the piggies at this pawty!

    • I don’t ever forget my piggie and bunny furriends! And you guys were one of my first bloggies to follow..I think you started near the time I did…and now just look at all of us! *twirls out to the dance floor with Basil*

  50. Happy 2nd Gotcha Day Savvy!its been a big year for you girl and thanks for giving a pawsome party too, enter us for the Kitty side please Savvy,xx Speedy

  51. Dearest Savvy…..Nobody could be happier than I am that you are coming into your own here on the anniversary of your “Gotcha”….you’re one strong young lady and so lucky to be where you are in the loving arms of your family and friends. Enjoy your special day…..!! The KITTY giveaway would be pawsome so sign me up purrlease!! Love you always dear friend……….

    Hugs, Sammy

  52. Happy Gotcha Day, Savvy!!!!! We had a discussion with Whisky and she said we could go ahead and ask for KITTY since she has enough toys. 🙂

    We like to follow your progress as an adult rescue and also how your relationship with Sage develops. That is what we would like to see on your blog this year..and the next…and the next…. 😉

  53. Happy Gotcha day! Yes. WOOFIE please!

  55. YAY, Savvy!!! Happy Gotcha Day!
    We would love to win the kitty prize for our local shelter! We know they would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

    Enjoy your super special day!
    Glogirly, Katie & Waffles

  56. Happy Gotcha day Savvy…we sent a cardie to your mums emails..i hope we sent it to the right one..argggghhhhh let us know if you don’t get it and we will sends it again…we will answer Kitty and if we get randomly picked can you donate it to a shelter 🙂 ..hopes your day is super duper and when the lazy anipals here wake up they will be attending the pawty with great jy 🙂 Loves Fozziemum xxx

  57. This is a great pawty, Savvy! Happy Gotcha Day!! And cheers to many others!!

    Maybe you should put up some kind of survey like Glogirly did on her website, to get ideas of likes and don’t likes of everyone? Just a thoughts.

    Sending you many purrs on your 2nd Gotcha Day!!

    • Yes, we will do a proper survey when Mom gets back. Hey Texas, do you wanna be in the give away? Bet you and Kitshka would luvluvluv the threeway tunnel

      • Thanks Savvy! I consulted with my human and since we have a tunnel, we think it would be better to let someone who might not have one try and win it. But thank you so furry much for asking.

        I have nominated you for the “I am Part of the WordPress Family Award” and the “Blog of the Year 2013 Award” today =^.^=


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