Thursday Purrsday…Second Blogiversary Party!


Woo Hoo!! It is celebration time again! My Second Blogiversary was actually April 1, but I waited until this special Thankful Thursday to throw my party.


Guess what is making me purr VERY loud this Thursday Purrsday???


thank you second blogiversary

And I said it last year, and I say it again this year…this is becoming my ‘mantra’…if cats can have such a thing.  I entered the paw blog community to serve, learn and have fun…not to become famous…thank you for helping me do all three again this past year…

Savvys humble message 2014

I hope I continue, in your–my readers’–eyes–to post by this ‘mantra’ .  I have lost some of my focus and am working hard to find my  way back…I still have lots more service, learning and fun to explore…just not sure how to do it anymore. But, enough said…I can ponder those deep thoughts another day…




Help yourselves to the noms…a little something for everyone...(hover over photo to see complete caption and click to bigify)

Some drinks to wash it all down with…

Finally, my Second Blogiversary Cake..(image courtesy of Miss Wendy)

Second Blogiversary Cake

NOW…what you have all been waiting for…



There are TWO, yes TWO items I will give away using to select the winners…I have chosen two things that ANYONE can win…no matter where you live…and both things are not feline nor canine centric…hope you like them.

FIRST…A beautiful coaster set your peeps should like…OR…you can have them serve your noms or water or whatever using these…they will make any beverage of small dish of food look great.  They are made by one of our favorite design companies. We purrsonally have several of their products in my  home. Please visit their website if you luvluvluv the design motif for this coaster set. They make so many other items for the home and office. We have two of their fab floor mats to brighten up our kitchen and a set of their table place mats.  Welcome to the design world of Kakadu Designs..manufactured in Israel…

These are made of wood and handcrafted and hand painted. Many artists contribute to the design of these products.

SECOND…Mom and Dad will donate $50 USD to any 501 c3 Animal Rescue of your choice if you win the Second item.

Stack of Money




Thank you for coming by to celebrate.  If you do not tell me which item you want to win…I will not be able to follow up to see if you just forgot….sorry…

Paw Pats, Savannah

Disclaimer: I was not paid, asked, nor given any favorite treats or green papers by Kakadu to offer their product in this “Give Away”.  In fact, they were surprised when I called to ask about shipping etc.  I will pay the price advertised on their site for this product AND I will pay for the shipping fees.

  27. spittythekitty on said:

    Oh Savvy! Two years already!?! Happy Blogoversary! I hope you had a wonderful day 😉 We want to be in the running for the donation–the Human loves those coasters things, but she is not ‘llowed to has any more stuff in the house. I love you sooooooooo much, sweet girl! XOXOXOXO

    • oh Spitty!! You came to my celebration!!! I was worried that you might not make it…I know your human is very unpredictable…but I have lost so many readers since last year…I was hoping against hope you would be here and…HERE you are!!! warm paw hugs, Nana

      • spittythekitty on said:

        Oh my darling! I understand about losing readers, sigh. My Human has been so bad about helping me visit my furiends, it’s a wonder that anyone comments on my bloggy anymore ;-( I guess this whole blog business kind of ebbs and flows. I wish my Human would retire and I bet you hope yours would STAY retired, MOL! XOXOXOXO

  28. concats on your blogoversary savvy. we would like to get a chance to win the moolah for the contra costa county animal shelter in pinole where both emma and buster were adopted from.

  29. Happy 2nd Blogaversary, Savy! We think we’ll start with a little of that salmon…

    We would like to enter your contest for the donation! If we won, we would want to donate it to your former shelter.

    Happy Friday!

    Pee Ess – Mommy just LOVES your blog header!

  30. Happy Blogoversary Savvy. It is wonderful having be part of the CB.

    We would like to say that if we win, we want prize #2 to go to our shelter, HAWS!

  31. Happy Second Bogiversary!!!!! This is a great pawty! Nom Nom! Sorry Ralphie and I were late comers but the wishes are just as sincere! We would like to put our paw in for our local rescue group Catnip and Tails Rescue (they have a facebook page) Thanks Marty and Ralphie

  32. Very happy blogaversary, Savvy! If we win, we’d like the donation to go to the rescue that you and Sage came from.

  33. Happy Blogoversary!! Whoo hoo, great party! We’d like to be entered for the shelter one please.
    You know, if your blog changes, that’s fine, everything does, but we’ll still be here following you! I just don’t want you to feel you have to pigeon hole yourself if you’re exploring other kinds of posts, ok? We love you all!

    • oh my no…we are not exploring different posts…we have had so many readers stop visiting we wonder if we are not being relevant anymore. Since last May, so many do not come around anymore, not sure if we offended someone or what; but it is hard to try to help rescue when we no longer have the outreach we once did. Very sad right now. So thank you ever so much for coming for my party. It has been small compared to last year. And we do not understand, but all things do change that is for sure. paw hugs, Savvy and Mom Linda

  34. Happy blogaversary! We’d love to win the coasters.

  35. Flynn on said:

    Happy Blogoversary Savvy. Please enter me for the donation and if I were to win I would like it to go to a shelter of your choice.

  36. Sweet Savvy..our day vanished yesterday and we did not get a chance to wish you a Happy Boggie-versary…so we wish you the very best now..we hope you continue to inspire peeps around the world to rescue those who need it the most and we love that you have come such a long way..always inspiring always beautiful and always loved by us here down under..With love and hugs from Miss Bev and the whole gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <3<3

    • Oh Miss Bev and the gang down happy to have you come such a very long way…I hope the sheep liked the greens I had…and Dinnermintz and I had a good laugh about me calling her a ‘he’ *giggles*. I appreciate your very kind words, but I don’t think I inspire many any more…my first year I did..but so many have stopped coming round to comment…we are thinking of taking a very very very long break…not sure my mantra is right and fear my absence will not be noticed by many…we still do local rescue work but without having the connections to others in blogville we can’t do more around the world like we used to. You are special to us for sure, paw hugs, Nana and Mom Linda

      • Savvy my sweet Dinnermintz did indeed have a chuckle..everyone thinks she’s a boy hahaha …it’s the whole ginger myth 😉 and really I find you inspiring and as some people fall away new ones come..i used to tell my kids when they had friends not be friends anymore that life is like a tv have some great characters that you get used to and know and they leave..but then new characters arrive and eventually they are just as likeable…more characters will come I am sure..but if you need a long break then go for it..while you are not here you are helping rescues and so it is not a losing situation..sometimes things happen to make you turn and see what else is around..we still love ya to bits!! hugs and loves Miss Bev and gang xxx pee ess the sheepies lved the greens there is not much here!! ;0

  37. Mags Corner on said:
