Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Friday Frolics…Blog Paws Learning and Fun


Like lots of others who attended Blog Paws in Vegas this year…Mom and Dad visited the kitties and peeps at Katnip Lounge (Miss Trish has “KATNIP” as her license plate; cool huh?!).

Miss Trish and Mr Scott and the cats were such great hosts! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Mom L attended a very informative session on photography delivered by the famous Glogirly…Miss Debbie Glovatsky.  So Mom L tested her advice to ‘GET DOWN’ to the cat’s level…clearly the concept is a good one…Mom L just needs to learn how to focus…at least she is trying…

All photos are out of focus, but Mom L ‘got down’ with us…gotta give her that…she will learn to use this point and shoot better before she approached Dad P about a new camera…heh…heh

Now for some Frolics…Savannah style!  Those who have known me since my beginning days of blogging know that I do not take risks, don’t get into mischief or do things I fear might get me in trouble.  So Mom L was stunned when a couple of days after she was back from BP…while she was watching a bit of TV…I hopped right onto the dining table for a look see…after all…The Kid Sage even takes a short nap up there now and then…must be something I was missing out on…

This may not seem like much of an adventure to many of you…but for me…it was amazing.  The Kid Sage is helping me find more courage…even though I still am reacting to her with very feral like hisses, growls and lots of smacks if she moves on me…I am also learning I can do more than I ever thought…isn’t life just wonderful???

Paw pats, Savannah

PeeEss…Mom Linda is typing up her notes from three Blog Paw Sessions:

If you would like to receive her notes, in a MS Word file, she will be happy to send them.  Let me know in comments if you want to receive her notes…do not expect great notes…but expect some that will be useful.

  1. Mom says she would love to have the notes from Rose Hamilton’s presentation. ( Thanks for the offer. She is so bummed that she missed her trip to the Katnip Lounge as she suspects she will never have another opportunity. She says her Visa to Las Vegas has been canceled! And as she hadn’t been there since 1972, she says the chance of getting back before she croaks is pretty slim! We think it is superb that you are becoming more adventurous, Savvy! Good work.

  2. Well done Brave Savvy xx

  3. That’s so nice of your mom to offer a copy of her BP notes. We would sure love to have a copy. Long before she ever heard of the concept, Jan took pictures at the local shelter and she always tried to get down to the dog’s level (cats could only be photographed in a cage or being held). The shelter mgr always made fun of her for being so slow.

    Well we think you’re EVER so brave to jump up there. Kid Sage is good for you, she really is! YAY!

  5. Mom couldn’t go to Blogpaws even if she want to. Please do send us the notes. Would love to learn new things.

    What fun was had by all at Katnip Lounge, what a treat for all that got to visit there. These are all wonderful pictures. Sweet Savannah we are so happy you are learning new adventures and we are still holding out that one day you and Sage will be great friends. We don’t give up easily. Thank you all so much for the sweet, comforting comment on Snookums page. We appreciate and love you all very much. Hugs and nose kisses

    We think it is incredible you had the courage to jump up onto the table! That is just the beginning and we look forward to hearing more as you become bolder and bolder! Purrs from the Zee and Zoey Gang!

  8. Yo BFGF, I’d love your photography notes to see if TW can learn anything. She’s been getting better finally. She has her own tips and tricks that she’s learned since I started blogging. Love your pic exploring on the table. Even though they live so close, TW always seemed to miss Layla.

  9. Paws up to getting up on the table, Savvy. Who knows what adventures you might find up there! The head peep would love to see your Mom’s notes from sessions, especially Lisa’s Richman’s video session, which she was really sorry to have missed.

  10. We love it when the humans get down to our level. 🙂

  11. I’d love to see your notes. I was doing other stuff and unable to attend sessions for more than a few minutes. I posted my Katnip Lounge pics today and keep adding pics to my Blogpaws photo album on G+ and Fb.

  15. Many thanks for sharing your photos with me, it is a little as we were there too :o) I’m glad you discovered the hero-kitty inside of you, Savannah. I never thought that I would be so happy to see a kitty on a table. Isn’t that crazy? Apaws, apaws, BRAVO!

    • Easy you and your Mom and Dad have been one of my cherished supporters; always encouraging words. I have a long way still to go…but after 2 1/2 years in my forever home…I have come a long way..further than I dreamed possible…and I was doing zoomies all over the house the last two nights about 3-5 AM…our weather has been 90+F and it is finally cooling off in to low 70’sF at night…whew!

  16. You might get bored of hissing at Sage one day, Savvy ..

  21. Savvy I’m SO PROUD OF YOU!!!! On the dining room table and that’s something Sage showed you which makes it even better. I know you’re not over the moon about having her there but I think she might be showing you some new tricks! I’m glad your Mom visited Katnip Lounge and I’m glad she had fun…..everybody who was there did!

    Hugs, Sammy

  22. What awesome pics of the Catio and well done to Mum L on her on the level pics! it’s amazing how healing kitties can be for each other..very subtle but changes happen and no matter how seemingly small they really are extraordinary! I bet mum was taking notes like a crazed woman Savvy!! hahahaha 🙂 we love the engaging content notes that sounds like a great idea..always interesting to get ideas on how to keep our followers interested 🙂 hugs Miss Bev xx

  23. Savvy, you are so funny skulking around on the table. I think next time you’re up there, you should give the is-it-breakable test to everything on the table.

    Love and licks,

  24. Good for you, Savvy!! Slowly, slowly ….. Re the photography. The thing is the humans need to come UP to our level, as we are far superior!! MOL

    Concatulations on your adventure Savannah! Having a furry sibling can prompt a shy kitty to look around and stretch the boundaries a bit. If it makes you feel any better, I still hiss and growl at Hitch. We’ve only been together since 2008, after all. It takes a shyer kitty a little while to get comfortable with a new sibling. The other day he came in while I was napping on the HuMom. He laid down between her feet and started to dose. I kept my eyes on him, growling on the exhale, purring on the inhale. ( those head scratches sure are good). The HuMom would love to see us snuggle together but she’ll have to be content that the fur’s not flying. She’ll take the best she can get.

  27. Oh how lucky your human is! Blogpaws sounds like it was so much fun!!

    Thank you guys so much for all your sweet words while I was sick. It helped Rumblemum and me so much. I’m home again and I’ve started to perk up and be back to normal 🙂 The power of the purr!!

  28. This year’s BlogPaws was so awesome for so many reasons! I know your human will get the focus right with the photography – she is on the right track getting on the kitty level!

  29. Whee would love to receive the photography notes and the creating engaging content notes. Our email is

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
