Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

I Am a Famous Cat Model


Do any of you remember when I posted this photo Mom L captured of me back in April, 2013?

What'cha lookin' at Mom?

What’cha lookin’ at Mom?

It was then and always has remained Mom L’s most favorite photo of me. She says something like it “captures your REAL SELF”…whatever that means.

I have seen many of my anipal blog folks showing up on their blogs with amazing pencil, pen, etc…sketches by this incredible artist Mr. Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen. Once Mom L saw one of those on my mentor’s blog, Sammy over at One Spoiled Cat…well..she just had to have one of me…and of course The Kid Sage.

Then just the end of last week Mom L and I received an email announcing someone had posted on her FB page. We looked and OMC were we shocked.

Mr Thomas had captured my REAL SELF!!


peeEss…please help my adventur pal Nerissa. He has been very ill during April, his only month to earn green papers for his chosen rescue, Anjellicle Cats Rescue in NYC.

Nissy has not been able to fully promote the sale of his first published work, his cat-o-biography.

Throughout the month of April, a portion of all sales of the book Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes will go to the wonderful Anjellicle Cats Rescue of New York, helpin’ them to help save cats’ lives.  You can purchase your very own copy at your local book store or on Amazon by clicking right HERE.  You’ll wanna stock up for holiday gift-giving for sure.
