Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

The Chik-Hen Leg Mystery


You all know that I, HRH Princess Savannah, never ever do anything that is sassy or silly or…ahem…against house rules. However, TKS seems to have a ‘no holes barred’ attitude relative to the ‘rules’.

Seriously? What was TKS thinking when she did this?

Seriously? What was TKS thinking when she did this?

So Mom L and Dad P had some of Dad P’s human relations hanging out with them for a few days. We were displaced and grumpy so thrilled to have them in our my castle.

As you know TKS totally luvluvluvs all things chik-hen. Dad P grilled some of that yummy stuff and the humans had a wonderful meal. And then, Mom L went back to the kitchen, next to my our office, and she was totally gobsmacked by what she saw.

What in Ceiling Cat's name is THAT!!

What in Ceiling Cat’s name is THAT!!

Mom L could not for the life of her understand what she was seeing. At first she thought it was one of our feather toys. Then she moved closer and thought I had really up chucked my whole dinner. Then she moved closer and realized that was a WHOLE CHIK-HEN LEG from their grilled dinner. Unfortunately, the platter was left on the kitchen counter, filled with tasty chik-hen.

Now WHO could have DONE THAT!!!

*slurp* tasty, very, very tasty

*slurp* tasty, very, very tasty

The Kid Sage (aka TKS) has been finally discovered as a ‘food a’holic’ with no thought of where she must search out and gorge dine upon all that she smells.

She is now under close human surveillance…na’mean??!!

  1. I was relieved when you wrote that it was a barbeque chick-hen-leg…Phew… 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤

  2. We can’t resist chicken either! Mom is very careful not to leave it unsupervised.

  3. Hi Princess Savannah. It’s these youngsters you know, no manners. What you need to do is give the kitchen staff a good hard stare and take something off their Christmas bonus if they let it happens again. Purrs Erin PS was there a sauce with that leg, am partial to that.

  4. Dang TKS, that must have been paw lickin’ good!

  5. Ha ha ha! Good on yer TKS! We have your twin here on the opportunist front. Every now and then we forget something…

  6. Wasn’t part of that dinner for her? She was just taking her portion. mol

  7. OMC! She coulda swallowed a bone or three! I hope she’s OK.

    MOL! TKS needs to learn to drag her kill further away if she wants to keep it!

  9. Sage, we don’t blame you one bit for stealing the chicken. We woulda done the same thing.

    • ah guys, you make TKS feel much better. HA! Mom and Dad are totally onto her now. They came home two days ago and she had managed to push and shove the large bin they keep our special kibble in, off the counter top!!. She clearly gorged herself as there was whole kibble upchuck next to it. I mean this is like a 2 gallon large plastic bin, not full so she must have been able to push it. sheesh

  10. Ashton’s giving you a big high paw, Sage! Around here, no food is left unattended. Everything is covered in secure containers because Newton goes shopping on the countertops.

    • first time always teaches best. Sage has never ever done this at any meal time. So nothing remains on counters going forward. She even managed to shove our kibble 2 gallon container off the counter to the floor. It is now hidden in washer dryer cupboard.

  11. That was some good hunting, TKS.

    Good job, TKS! We are a bit surprised that you only stole one chick-hen leg. If our mom is stupid enough to turn her back on any food, Lily is immediately into it. And there is the story of our angel Steamer who stole an entire pork chop off Mom’s plate. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  13. sage….we knead ta haza seer ee iz meow bout thiz….knot de fact ya swiped food…but WHAT ya swiped….ya noe ~~~~~~~

  14. Oh my goodness! looks like she gnawed the heck out of it, but didn’t get to the bones, thankfully! Star would have devoured that thing whole! hee hee, we could never leave chicken around when she was with us. Now it doesn’t matter because these three don’t think human food is food!

    Love and licks,

  20. What did your humans expect? If that had happened here, ALL of us would have been stealing that chicken, even Boodie, who is not normally a counter jumper.

  21. TKS definitely needs to learn to hide the evidence!! MOL

    Good job TKS- I am glad you didn’t choke on the bones.

  23. mistletoeandhitch on said:

    Well at least Mom L. didn’t step on it by accident. Hitch leaves “gifts” for our HuMom and sometimes she steps on them in the dark. She doesn’t even cry out anymore, she just moans softly “oh no, please God”. We think it’s nice how she gives thanks before she even sees whatever we’ve left for her. Oh and Hitch, who wants to be a wrestler when he finishes growing wants you to know that the phrase “No Holds Barred” is in reference to wrestling and well…..not barring any holds, like in some matches a chokehold might be barred. Just a little trivia that might be wrong but makes sense so we’ve excepted it without argument or question.

  24. TKS just needs to learn to hide the evidence better.

  25. that was a clever idea to grab only one piece… we dogs would… well ya know… we have no feline wisdom :o)

  26. That’s like my cats,everything has to be locked up.

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