Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat



It’s January 3rd and that means it my FOURTH GOTCHA DAY and The Kid Sage’s SECOND GOTCHA DAY. Please celebrate with us. Sage and I know that we are two very fortunate cats having our Mom L and Dad P drawn to each of us through our magical feline charm.

Many other cats languish in shelters and with rescue groups hoping that their purrfect forever family will soon find them as well. Now I am not sayin’ this to be a downer…nope, no way. This is still our day to celebrate. I just want to remind my pals who drop by to visit me to never forget, WE are all the fortunate ones. Those of us who have a voice through our social media clearly landed on all our paws when we were chosen by humans who help us have a voice the world can hear. Join me when you can to Paw It Forward…especially for adult and special need or physically challenged cats that humans too often pass over for the cute kittens.

4 whole years. Thank you Ceiling Cat for helping Mom L and Dad P hear my voice

I know The Kid Sage feels the need to celebrate just as I do, but she also recognizes that fate for her could have been a life living on the streets.

Gosh! 2 years flashed by and I never saw it because I was safe and having fun

TKS and I hope you are having a great time. We truly appreciate having you all come to our DOUBLE GOTCHA DAY CELEBRATION.

Remember…PAW IT FORWARD…and SHARING SAVES LIVES…so always paw the ‘share’ button when a cat or woofie is searching for a home and especially if they are desperate to escape from a kill shelter. Let’s all stick together in making this year, 2016, the highest save rates yet across the world.

*steps off soap box* Ok, I’m done now.  Let’s get my BFGF the Stunning Cathy Keisha to get the tunes to spinning and let’s PAWTAY!!!

    PS. About the pawing it forward stuff? The local shelter my peeps do a little fund-raising for had 15 adoptions last month! Small shelter so 15 is a lot, I should think. I’m hoping they find forever homes for more next year than they’ve ever found before. purrs

  17. Wow “gotted” on the SAME day? How cool is that? Happy Happy Gotcha Day to you both! catchatwithcarenandcody

  18. P.S.: With our Frankie it was really a “gotcha” day when we could grab this “handful of a kitty” [] hiding in the hole of our water meter. It was lucky for hin he fell in there as otherwise I might not have been able to catch him in the deep grass and brush. Well, I would not have given up trying, but who knows.

  19. A happy gotcha day to you two! I’m celebrating with you and am glad that you found two so wonderful humans. I hope you’ll enjoy many more days in their company and they in yours,

  20. Happy gotcha day, Savvy and TKS! Thanks for the great party. I never get to counter surf so this is really fun. I love your reminder that we lucky ones need to keep trying to help kitties who don’t have loving homes like we do.

    Love and licks,

  34. Happy Gotcha Day to you both,what a great start to the new year!Now wheres the drinkies?xx Speedy

    Happy Gotcha Day to you, my friends! Mr. Bowie is ready to party and says “Meow!”

  36. Happy gotcha day to you both! You certainly are very fortunate kitties – as are Boodie and Binga!

  37. Congrats you two – two very lucky girls indeed!

  38. Concats on your Gotcha Day, both of you! And We think your Mom is also lucky to be the pawrent of two such gorgeous Felines.

    We will be right over, as soon as our Teleport Tunnel is powered up! Save us a couple of nip cocktails (mol).

  39. My tom has his 10th Gotchaday in March, and his little female her fourth. After she has been overlooked for a year because she was so timid. Now she is the bold one. It’s a shame we cannot give all shelter cats the love and attentation and homes they need. But for you two and my two there was a happy ending.

    • I am going to work with Mom L to try to find homes for as many as we can this year and we are working to make sure feral cats that are taken to our county kill shelter are released after spay/neuter and vaccinations etc back to where they were trapped. They used to automatically kill them, now they will be Returned to the Field and the community will be advised that they are spayed/neutered etc.
