Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Rescue Cats Come in All Sizes


It has been a long time…like NINE whole months…since Mom L was able to work the weekly cat clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats (CC4C). Some of you may recall Mom L had a complete knee replacement in early December and then come May 18 we were struck by a lightning bolt from our property owner telling us to move.  Long story short…we are finally in a new rental home and settling in rather well.

Yep! This now my HRH Savannah Castle

Yep! This now my “Savannah Castle”.

The Kid Sage was not at all shy about settling in no matter what changes the humans made…that chair with the custom made cat bed was there for like 12 seconds…

This is MY PLACE...just so you know HRH Savannah!

This MY PLACE…just so you know HRH Savannah!

That’s it for the ‘background’ story. Mom L and her best buddy Doc Josie finally were able to work together again with Ms Gemma from CC4C this past week and what a thrill Mom L had helping all the rescue cats.

There were about 10 kittens, rescued from feral situations, and all will be adopted out over time…(REMEMBER: hover over each photo to view captions)

Of course, what that kitten was having done with his hind leg was drawing blood to test for feline immune issues. Doc Josie draws the blood from kittens from inside their hing leg where there is a vein that is available. The adults have their blood drawn from the jugular vein…which is easier given their age. Mom L usually looks away…she is very squeamish…


This precious 15 year old female cat was abandoned by her guardians because they moved to Hawaii and taking her with them was difficult. So they called CC4C asking them to find her a new home. As she is likely now hyperthyroid, it is unlikely that this sweet Senior Female Cat will ever find a new home. She was always an only cat and adored all the attention. She simply is not able at her age to adjust to her foster Mom’s other cat…and so what will be her fate? One little pill, twice a day…and living as a loving only cat…will anyone ever step up to take her?

Likely not…there are so many available healthy kittens…who will want her?

If you are one of my followers, please spread the word that a 15 year old lovely lady is in desperate need of a forever home. And yes, she will need two pills a day…AM and PM…and she is easy to medicate. How can anyone abandon a cat, or any companion animal, who has given them 15+ years of their life and love…*shakes head*…I am so very thankful I have my permanent home…but am dismayed that this sweet lady does not.

And so, such is the reality of working with all ages of animal rescue…whether feline or canine…

Mom L and I are so pleased we can again report on our efforts with free roaming feline rescue efforts.

    We know it makes Mom L very happy to be back helping these cats and kittens, and they are very lucky to have her help. We’ll be purring and praying for that sweet 15-year-old. It always breaks are hearts when humans think their pets are disposable. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. This particularly makes me sad as I’m 15, have to take thyroid meds, and have always been an “only” so I can’t even begin to imagine all of a sudden losing my loving Mom and Dad and being with strangers…….poor Penny. I’m praying someone will take her and give her some comfort in her last years…….

    Hugs, Sammy

  7. Oh, sweet Ms Penny… our heart aches for you. Love is supposed to be for life. We pray you find a loving forever home that’s really forever very soon. We’ll share your post on our Facebook page too.

    • PLEASE do so Katie…her need is urgent…I cannot say what her fate might be after Sept 15…but it is not good. Anything you can do to share her is greatly appreciated. And my I also say…’apologies’ for not being around for ever so long. Since May 18th, life had dealt us many blows…but I will be back and will again visit my pals

  8. It’s just so sad when any cat (or dog) is abandoned, but to do that to a senior kitty who has known one home…

  10. Humans have much to answer for.

  11. It’s so sad that the 15 yr old cat was given up by her family. Don’t humans know pet ownership is for life?? Sheesh. Paws up to your mom for helping out at the shelter, Savvy.

  12. How sad that the senior kitty’s family left her like that. We’re werestling with realizing how many people aren’t the responsible pet guardians we always assumed. It’s sad indeed. We’ll look for your FB post about her and share it. Please post it to Twitter, too?

    That poor, precious angel. I cannot even imagine abandoning any cat, much less one that I was lucky enough to have for 15 years. I will never understand people.

  14. That lady cat sure is sweet. She have a name?


  15. Your Mom rocks, BFGF! I will share about the senior lady when you put up the post about her on FB. She doesn’t deserve to be unhappy at this stage of her life.

    Your mom does a pawsome job at the rescue center ! We’re glad you’re feeling at home. Purrs

  17. That is so sad that the 15 year old’s owners couldn’t be bothered to take her to Hawaii with them.

  18. We hope those awful humans who left that sweetie behind get their butts stuck in a volcano.

  19. Thank you for the report, its lovely to see the kittens taken care of and you are giving us an insight into what happens at these events – many of us do not know.

    Trust me, that kitty lady would have a home in an heartbeat if she was here! Pill twice a day or not, she would be treated like royalty. Heck going to Hawaii and LEAVING her what is this GRRRRR If we would have had to leave the cats in the UK we would NOT have come to New Zealand END OF STORY!!!!!!

    We sure are glad to hear things are on the up and up

  21. Glad you and your human ate Settled now – take care of her!😺

  22. It is very sad when people think they have to move somewhere and they don’t want to go to the hassle to have their long-time companion go with them! Would they abandon a spouse like that? Or a child?

  23. pilch92 on said:

    I feel bad for all homeless cats, but especially the older ones who wereprobably used to a home at one point. Thyroid is easy, I have 3 on meds for it.

  24. So glad you’re all feeling at home,xx Speedy

  25. Oh poor kitty. You just don’t leave a family member just like that!

    Emma and Buster

  26. Your mom sure does do some amazing work!

    • First , thank you ever so much for sticking with me. I know I have not been to visit for months. I am trying, truly, to get ‘back’. “LIFE” has just been kicking our behinds for like 3 months…and we are no longer young…

  27. catfromhell on said:

    Glad yous guys is settling in and glad your Mom is back doing what she loves to do. Too bad about the senior lady! Mes can’t imagine mes in that situation!

  28. I feel so sorry for this poor cat lady… I will share this post and I hope so much there is a chance to find a new home…

  29. What amazing, important, rewarding work your mom does, S. Ditto all the rest of the Angels at CC4C. Those unlucky kitties just got lucky.

    Love and licks,

  30. Oh, those darling kitties! We are purring furry loudly to rhe Great Cat in the Sky that they all find furrever homes soon. We are purring extra hard fur the beautiful senior Ladycat. How could anyone be so cruel and selfish as to abandon her like that?!
    What, people in Hawaii don’t have cats?!

  31. Hi Savvy, can you make a Facebook post about this senior lady with a photograph of her so that I can easily share her story to my FB fans? That way, we can focus on her and readers won’t have to scroll down to the bottom of this post to read about her!

  32. 15 years old and abandoned – so sad.

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