Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Selfie Retrospective: Introduction to a six part series

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I asked Mom L to dig around and find a sort of ‘selfie’ from when I first arrived here, in my forever castle. I thought it would be a great set up for the start of my once a month PAW IT FORWARD project starting on Monday, September 28th.

Yup, being a ‘foster’ cat still means no ‘home’. Yeah, yeah…we all hope the fostership will fail…but you never know. Thankfully, mine did, and here I am…the Queen of my very own castle and even a blog, a Face Book Fan Page, a Twitter ID and more.

But…you all knew there was gonna be a ‘but’, right?…there are so many more cats that go into ‘foster’ and never leave, no matter how hard they wish, dream and pray for a real forever castle. Therefore, I am starting a once a month feature blog post tomorrow, Monday, September 28th, to bring to my readers the hopes and dreams of  HOMELESS FOSTER CATS currently in foster with Community Concern 4 Cats. This post is my INTRODUCTION to this SIX  part series, which will conclude in January 2016.

My regular readers, at least those who have stuck with me even though my typist is lousy at commenting… will recognize this rescue that tries very hard to TNR as many cats in my county as they can AND they try to take as many of the adult cats (meaning over the age of 6 months) into foster hoping to socialize them to become adoptable. I often report on Mom L volunteering in their weekly cat clinic, held in the kitchen of the organization’s President, Ms Gemma…(click here; click here).

My first post was about two tiny bottle kittens…

Tiny lives...fostered by a CC4C member

And my most recent was about the CC4C clinic in Ms Gemma’s kitchen with Doc Josie…helping Ozzie…

Ms Ozzie found almost dead on a local bike path

It took no paw struggle to get CC4C to be willing to tell the real deal about all rescues who work with the neighborhood free roaming cat population across this country…meaning the US of A. So many of these precious cats are adults, and even though some are very willing to be adopted and even pray to Ceiling Cat that they will have their very own forever castle at last…alas…when it comes to human adoption events, such as those at local pet food stores etc., humans most likely gravitate to the youngsters…not realizing that they have likely passed over the very cat they have always longed for just because that cat is an adult and/or black.

Please join me tomorrow to hear Coco and Chanel, two sisters, 20 months old, who are Homeless Foster Cats, share their story and their hopes and dreams of their Forever Homes. Introduction: We Are Adult Homeless Foster Cats…Revealing Hopes and Dreams with Savannah

  9. I am going over right now to read the first in the series, Savvy!! Because, as usual, we are way behind with our reading and commenting!! xxxx

    • no problem Austin, I have the same lame help you do; Mom L is crazy lazy when it comes to visiting. As you know, I have been absent from your comments like about forever! But please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

  11. Do I sense another award winning series? I hope so cos it sounds pawsome. TW wishes she could foster for UCFCC cos they do such wonderful work but she can’t. Christa did get a permanent home and we’re so thankful. She was found almost dead near Christ Hospital by a nurse hence her name.

    • *blushes* not likely a relatively unknown blog like mine will be recognized twice; but it sure was thrilling to be recognized for two things this year. And I am tickled that you like this series. We cannot foster either hence we are doing this series.

      please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

  12. We can’t wait! we know anyone who writes to an award winning standard will come up with the good BIG TIME!!

    What a wonderful project ! Purrs

  17. We are looking forward to your upcoming posts!
    We like what your mom is doing. It’s so important.
    Our Julie was rescued from the great outdoors.
    Mom thinks she was “dumped” because she was so friendly.
    She was also about 3 years old and not spayed! (she is now)

    • Hi Guys! Thanks lots for coming to visit. I went to you blog but I only follow by email; would you mind adding a ‘follow by email’ button so I can follow you? Your blog is very fun and nice. please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using.

    This is so wonderful Savvy!

    • You are too nice Annabelle, Ping, Jinx and Boo…and Angel Abby. If you don’t mind and have the time…please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

  19. We look forward to your new project, Savvy. There are so many cats that need homes. We gotta do what we can to help them. We’re glad you were a foster-fail. 🙂

    • I am thrilled to have been a foster fail! You guys know how hard it is to get the backlog of adult/senior cats into homes so the rescue can save even more! I am asking everyone who comments on both these blog posts…please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

    We are sure glad you were a foster fail (just like Gracie and Zoe), Savvy. You and Mom Linda do awesome work, and we can hardly wait to read about your new feature tomorrow! 🙂

    • Hey Moosey and crew; I know your humans are up to speed on how hard it is to get the adults adopted; until that happens they are never really truly ‘home and saved’. please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

  21. We will be there tomorrow Savvy..it is an important message indeed..and a sweet way to help spread the message..our selfie today has a kitty that was adopted by a whole resort! showing that there are many homes for kitties out there ..loves Fozziemum xxx

  22. I’m there tomorrow… and I will spread the message… the more people can hear us the more will support us and maybe we can make this world a little bit better… for Coco and Chanel and for a lot of feline brothers and sisters…

  23. I am so excited about your new feature, Savvy! Fostering kitties is awesome, but it is still not a real home (unless they “fail”). And all cats should have a home with their own humans. I look forward to meeting Coco and Chanel.

    • Summer, having your support and the interest from your human means a lot to me. Would you mind asking your human if she would help you share both of these blog posts on your FB and Twitter sites? I need all the help I can get to make this series spread as far and wide as possible…it is my small attempt to educate about the most not talked about aspect of cat rescue and fostering. The adults in foster can remain homeless until they die. Butplease, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

  24. You make me feel almost bad because I did not adopt Isis when I searched for a new cat for my tom. 2- year old Isis was black with a tiny white spot on her chest.
    Instead I chose the 19 months old Kessy, who was even shier, who took 7 months to trust me enough to sleep next to me but who fitted my tom’s personality with her own way. Kessy is a (very) dark tortoise. And it was love at first sight for FunTom and her. I did not choose her because of her colour, I chose her because I thought she would get along best with my lovely, gentle tom. And given that the two, when first meeting, did not hiss at each other and he serenaded her a little later, I chose well.
    Yes, you are right, one should not overlook cats because they have a certain fur colour – but if you ask me, one should NEVER choose a cat because of its look anyway. Personality, character, life-style – those should be complimentary with the beings already living at the new home. Fur colour is just a random, unimportant feature about a cat.

    • We totally agree that personality, age fit etc is more important than color. However, we wanted to save a black cat and simply waited for months until one with the temperament and age most likely to be tolerated by Savvy showed up at Kitty Corner. We had several,people indifferent rescues watching for us. But you are so right that color ought not to be what one searches for first. Thank you for visiting and commenting. Savannah is a bit nervous about her first Homeless Adult Foster Cat interview🙀

    You and Mom L are doing good work, Savvy. Mom is so happy that the group she works with adopted out 30 cats this month. There are always more waiting in the wings, however. We’ll be back tomorrow to check out your post. Our Mom sends love to Mom L. Thanks for being part of our hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty may, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • 30 cats in a month is a lot; hope at least half of them were seniors and adults. I have asked the exact same thing of everyone who left a comment on this post…please, be sure to SHARE both of these posts on your FB page, Twitter, Google + etc. Whatever social media you are using. I need lots and lots of shares to get their need for a home out there.

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