Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Tug of War Between Cats


I have a suspicion that most of my readers have been through this before; at least if there is more than one cat in your castle.

Background Setting: I, HRH Savannah, have come to cherish my quiet time in a most pleasant, and yes…sacred sun puddle setting. I believe that Ceiling Cat made sure I had a very special sun puddle in our most dark home to which we were forced to move last Summer. (yes, there was an evil witch, but no poisonous noms, involved). You have seen Me, Myself in a previous post in this most pleasant and sacred sun puddle.

Me and My self in the sacred sun puddle

Well, just the other day there was a particularly lovely sun puddle with my name on it in this very spot. I was poised to do my leap into that sun puddle…and who do you suppose was waiting in hiding in the same cabinet behind which lies my special, Ceiling Cat arranged, sun puddle?

I wonder if HRH Savvy even knows I am waiting for her?

I wonder if HRH Savvy even knows I am waiting for her?

Like what? I have no idea she is there? Seriously.

I know TKS thinks I don't know she is waiting in hiding

I know TKS thinks I don’t know she is waiting in hiding

She is pretty ignorant about how this is going to go…

I am sure HRH Savvy doesn't have a clue

I am sure HRH Savvy doesn’t have a clue

Again…TKS just simply has little to no clue. I am, after all, a highly educated Former Adult Shelter Cat. I know the in’s and out’s of how to hide, gain advantage and whatnot.

I know this game. She waits to jump on me; I wait to get past her

I know this game. She waits to jump on me; I wait to get past her

And of course, TKS starts to fret about her ability to ambush me…

umm...maybe I have misjudges HRH Savvy's observation abilities????

umm…maybe I have misjudged HRH Savvy’s observation abilities????

And just how do you all surmise that this Cat Tug of War ended???

  2. We’re pretty sure you waited Sage out, and she either got bored and fell asleep or sauntered off. And then you went and took your rightful place in your sunpuddle. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    You waited her spastic self out, she couldn’t wait and you got your sunpuddle 🙂 We have a power struggle going on here and it is stressing Mom out. I have decided that I want to be top cat and have been cornering Ralphie and bullying him. This makes Mom very unhappy especially since Feliway multicat is on back order at all the pet stores near us.

  6. In the end you had the sunpuddle. Right?

  8. I love the photo with your reflection, so pretty.

  9. Well, we know you’re not a fan of sharing…so we bet TKS had to find herself another sunpuddle or go without.

  10. TKS thinks she is clever, but when push comes to shove, I reckon she backed down.

  11. I’m betting Sage skedaddled and you got your sun spot, no?

  12. We are figuring you got that sun puddle sweet Savvy since it is your special place…and no way are you gonna let sweet Sage get there. We know you are the queen around your place and keep Sage running and on her toes, but we do hope she finds a sun puddle of her own. Hugs and nose kisses

    • heh…heh…Miss Mags, Pooh and Chancy; TKS always finds her own sun puddle; this one is must special for ‘cuz I found it first in a place Mom L and Dad P never thought would produce a sun puddle in this dark rental we live in

  13. Bwa! Haa!! Haaa!!! Grrl Furrend…mes hopes there was some smacky paws too!!! Mes just LOVES a good bout of smacky paws!!!
    Happy (Belated) Valentines Day and mes sends Many, Many, Many Special

  14. I bet yu won – right? Of course you did 🙂

  15. I’m sure you were victorious, Savvy!

  16. Now play nice. That is what I tell them around here.

  17. Sounds like you were quite generous and gave TKS the easy way out. She has a lot to learn… especially where HRH’s and sun puddles are concerned. Purrs

  18. you did a french leave while TKS jumped and she landed on the floor?

  19. Sage got distracted by something.

  20. I think….. Hmmmmm…. You SHARED the sun puddle????

    Love and licks,

  21. Oh, I bet Sage had BIG second thoughts!

  22. We hope there was a big smack-down!

  23. One of you gave up?

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