Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

A Princess in Her Castle


Some might say I am spoiled. Others might say I am privileged. And even more might say I am royalty. I prefer to go with the last perception.

I am, HRH Savannah, the Princess of my Castle. I don’t think I need say more, right??? (be sure to hover over photos to view complete captions, paw pats, S)

Yes, I most always have my dinner served in the living room. The Kid Sage simply cannot keep her jaws off my dinner.

And who would deny a royal Princess her well deserved scritches, occasional tummy rubs and whatnot?

And Mom L always makes sure my scratcher  is fully loaded with my fave nip…then I can just zone, zen out…..ahhh…

My life has not always been that of a Princess. Many of you have seen this photo before. And you will see it again as I continue to journal, here on my blog, about my recovery from kittenhood trauma. I am a survivor; but only just barely. This is my intake photo at the local kill shelter where I was dropped by humans who did not leave any information as to whether or not I was feral; stray or just an abandoned, no longer wanted house cat.

I believe I have earned the right to my royal castle. And Mom L and Dad P could not agree more. They will forever protect me and even if that means making sure I have my own time and space to have my meals free from worry about whether or not The Kid Sage will take away my food.

I am HRH Princess Savannah; I am safe

  11. Savvy, you have come a long way, and you deserve every bit of worship you get!

  12. Savvy, we think you are spoiled, privileged AND royalty. And there’s nothing wrong with that. You deserve it.

  17. That is how Royalty should be treated!

  18. You aren’t spoiled, you are WELL LOVED and it is MUCH DESERVED!

    We are sure a good sharp whap round the ears ought to stop Sage from trying to steal your food Savvy.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  20. You found the best place ever Savannah…. I say thank you to your humans for all the patience and the love, I bet it was karma that you found your mom L. and your dad P… and now you are safe and all bad things and dark clouds are far away.

    • I so wish all those dark clouds and bad things would stay out of my dreams Easy. I wake sometimes mewing like a little kitten, afraid and disoriented. I usually find Mom L if I am not already next to her in bed. If I am in bed then I make sure to snuggle close and let her softly scritch my head until I relax again. We believe I have nightmares

  21. We at the ARC think that you are one very lucky cat and deserved to be spoiled. Wish ALL kitties the same. That is why I do the work here that I do. To make kitties S.A.F.E. Keep up the great blogging work!!!

    • *waves paw to Miss Sue* Hi, thanks for coming to visit. Do you mean “Animal Rescue Corps”? We are not sure what ARC means. And not positive we know who you are unless you are the Miss Sue who has been visiting me like forever! Thank YOU for all that you do for cats and dogs too.

  22. Safe and spoiled and privileged and royalty and gorgeous and loved and adored and understood. You done good, S.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake (I done good, too)

  23. You are safe indeed sweetie and have made great strides…so anything that makes you feel special is a good thing 🙂 and seems perfectly fine to me 🙂 loves Miss Bev xx

    • Thank you Miss Bev. I hope that one day I can allow at least Mom to pick me up without a struggle like you could finally do with Dinnermintz. She is my hero

      • Savvy I am sure it will’s not about you trusting Mum it’s about self protection..and that is very strong in many of us…Dinnermintz has her moments still and I don’t force the issue…like your Mum I know it is a bit at a she has taken to jumping on my lap when I lay down more and more..i cherish every moment..even if she is uber heavy 🙂 I do not mind one bit! loves Miss Bev xx

  24. It has been a long, hard road for you, Savannah, and I can see why – even though you landed in an amazing home – you still need reassurance that you are safe. I’m glad you are here to help other kitties who need the same kind of love and care.

  25. Stand for your rights, Savvy! You so deserved to feel safe 🙂 Pawkisses for a great Monday 🙂 ❤

  26. If Sage keeps intruding on your meals it is a good idea of your humans to serve you at a different place from Sage. I cannot do that with my two but then those two are not interfering with each other’s kibbles (or hardly ever) and the wet food is shared without “sibling” rivalry.

  27. I think ya definitely deserve it!

  28. You are safe. As I tell Harvey Home At Last – S.A.F.E.

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