Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Have Sun Puddle, Will Nap


As you have heard me complain about before, our new rental home is rather absent of decent sun puddles; no matter where the Sun is during what part of the year.

However, you have all seen the paws down best sun puddle room in the house which I discovered the instant Mom L and Dad P finally removed all their junk stored wall art and allowed the blinds to be open. VOILA! That was where the sun puddles were hiding!!

What I haven’t shared is the new discovery! Made by yours truly, of course. Now I have to describe where this once illusive sun puddle was discovered. The first time it showed up was when Mom L pulled up the blinds in her office to let some light in. Starting in mid November, Miss Sun Puddle showed up! She lives during this time of year right behind Mom L’s printer stand. The big window goes down to about 12 inches (30.5 cm) above the floor. The window sill is 5 inches (12.7 cm) wide. So I hopped up behind Mom L’s printer and found this lovely warm delish spot…and no one can see me!!

Unfortunately, my hind leg went to sleep and I started to vigorously shake it (like we cats do when we get a paw wet) and my hind paw whackity whacked the back of the printer stand and I was discovered!

Caught in the sun puddle!

Caught in the sun puddle!

Mom L was overjoyed by my ingenuity in locating this miraculous sun puddle and she felt badly my hind paw kept going to sleep and I would shake and get up. So she added and extra whole inch to my new sun puddle spot by putting a nice cozy fleece blanket on the window sill and moving the printer stand back about an inch. The stand is very sturdy so I can just lean against it. Pawsome!



You can even see my reflection through the screen on the window.

You can see how much I love this spot. It is only around for about 2 hours tops in the mid morning and I try to catch it as often as I can…unless The Kid Sage has beat me to it. But with her black furs she gets hot really fast…heh…heh.

This printer stand makes a good chin rest

As the month of November moved along, so did Ms. Sun Puddle. Thankfully she is spreading even wider! Now she reaches our new cat tower. I can stretch out

Ahhh…now I can stretch out

And of course, I must share this as well with TKS. At least she knows her manners and keeps to the low ground.

ummm...mind if I take this little part right here?

ummm…mind if I take this little part right here?

I don’t mind, really I don’t.

Thank problem Kid

Thank Nana…no problem Kid

    Allie: That was incredibly generous of you to share that amazing sun puddle!

  4. Hoo Cat what a great sun puddle in such a fine spot Savannah! We kept whispering into Dads ear at night when he slept and he finally got the hint and cut the big tree down that was blocking our sun puddles.
    Purrs you share with Sage

  5. That is a lovely sun puddle. I can’t remember the last time I saw one!

    Great job searching out that sunpuddle, Savvy! And how nice of you to share a little bit with TKS. 🙂

  7. Sun spots are great. Even better when padded and share with friends

  8. That’s one pawsome sunpuddle, Savvy. And a this time of year, you gotta soak up all the sun you can get.

  10. I find a hedge and a light breeze works every time. Maybe your peep could create an indoor hedge for TKS with a fan? purrs

    • well, that will be tough as we are not allowed to go outside. Too many dangers abound in the out of doors for cats, at least here. But Dad P and Mom L would always have indoor cats no matter where they lived. I get a nice light breeze with the window open, so it works ok for me.

  11. Excellent discovery, BFGF! Here no matter the time of year, we only get sunpuddles from about 6-10 in the window but I have to move the blinds cos TW is still sleeping. Nice to see you two resting so closely.

  12. S & S…..tell yur dad ta get up on de roof & cut sum ran dom holez in it….guarunteed ewe will haz sum sun then…..ewe….bet cha !!! 🙂 ♥♥♥

    Oh Savvy! I can’t find a sunpuddle to save my life! It has rained (ads it always does!!!!) 6 days in a row. We get 2-3 days of sun and then we are punished with 9-10 days of rain.

    • no, no…the rain is not punishment, but nourishment for the Earth. We so desperately need it in California. The trees, pines, redwoods, aspen and shrubs, manzanita, willow are all diseased and dying from no moisture. How can anyone not believe of global warming when it is staring us, in California, right in the eyes…so sad

  14. Oh Savvy! That is meowvalous! You are clever to find that sun puddle! But let’s face it! It’s on the kitty radar!! xxx

  15. This time of year, sunpuddles truly are precious! Glad you’ve located a good spot!

    Wow, you have found some extra special snoozing spots following the sun puddle. Good job! Enjoy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  18. Well, I am certainly glad you found a sun puddle!

  19. Hi Savannah,
    I’m happy for you that you found your sun puddle. 🙂 Our “three office helpers” [] found their spot, too. Not exactly in the sun, though. But if they had moved just a bit, they would have been in gthe sun.
    Have a great Advent time,
    Pit & the feline crew

  20. that was nice to make you your own sun-island… I hope the sun saw it and she will send her warmest sunrays efurry day to your sun spot :o)

    • Ms Sun does come almost every morning to my new spot. It’s good for me, but sadly we need dark rainy days for months on end her in California. Our drought is now killing our famous Redwood forest as they are dependent on wet fog and lots of rain. So many dead trees in our mountains as well

  21. Glad you found a new sun puddle and Mom L made it comfy for you.

    Now we has some shocking news to impart. Scylla was found cuddling with Yin, fur was touching. Purr motors were on full blast…………………

    and the most shocking news of all, Scylla let Yin and Yang eat with her.

    • OMC!!! So awesome! I hope that one day I will do that with Sage but as she has been here two years now, it isn’t likely. We believe, as does our VET, that it is very likely I was once a feral cat. So, I have come a very long way

  22. What an awesome spot, Savannah – and it looks like it just keeps getting better!

  23. Oh now isn’t your Mum L, the nicest lady ever? Moving all her stuff so you can be comfortable. Yeah * thinks * I can imagine Sage would get VERY hot. Our Phoebe is a dark furry and she gets hot!

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