Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Ready? Set! ACTION!


I want to share the results of some of the coaching I have been giving The Kid Sage. This is all about teaching her some of the Hunter Action Moves I learned from reading about and watching my personal coach, Mama Cat OTRB (The Blog of Otis) If you missed her training sessions before she left for The Bridge last year, you can click on the link above and review her many quality training posts.

Moving on, so I am actually demonstrating one of my very own special Hunter Action Moves in this next photo. The Kid Sage has yet to master this move as she cannot keep her butt still long enough. I call it “Straight Leg Butt Down Scout” position.

Mama Cat had a marvelous signature hunting move she called her Flying Squirrel move. I decided to modify that to better suit my personality and I created the floor version of her Flying Squirrel.

The other move I think is most important for The Kid Sage to learn is the Half Twist Snatch and Grab move. Again, I choose to perform the ‘floor’ version.

I will let you be the judge as to whether or not my little ‘grasshopper’ sister The Kid Sage has learned any Hunter Action Moves from me.

  3. the floor flying squirrel looks interesting…I have to put my left paw there… and the right one there while winding my tail around my left …. OMD I’m a knot… can you send me an instruction sheet please?

  4. Wow, Savvy! It’s great that you have warmed to TKS sufficiently to be her purr-sonal coach! And she couldn’t have a better one, we are sure!

    Wow, sweet Savannah you really have some amazing moves. You are doing an excellent job teaching sweet Sage too, she sure has the high jump down pat. Hugs and nose kisses

  6. Excellent, Savvy! You’re quite the teacher, and TKS is lucky to be learning from the best! 🙂

  7. Wow, Savvy. You got the moves! It’s hard for TKS to match that.

  8. Those are some seriously advanced moves, Savvy!

  9. We see TKS has natural athletic abilities, but needs a bit of polishing on the technique. You have done marvelously on the training Savvy.

  10. Well, that was quite a leap around the :24 mark, but she has a long way to go before she can come close to matching YOUR grace and skill, Savannah.
