Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Shocking Feline Exploration—Two


Lemme explain about my lousy photos today. You see, it was late in the evening, and Mom L was about to fall asleep on the couch. I always sit on the opposite end from her or more often now, I come over and settle in close to her. So remember it was dark and all Dad P had was his smart phone to try to grab a couple of photos before I remembered what I was doing!

That's just the right spot

That’s just the right spot

Can you see where I am???!!! Can you? Really, be serious—can you tell where ALL FOUR OF MY PAWS ARE PLANTED??!!!


She was just about asleep so I took advantage of the opportunity to spend about 1 to 1.29394 minutes, yes MINUTES!—NOT seconds—in her LAP!

Poor Mom L needed these lousy photos to remind her of what happened. She is almost asleep and I stayed right there for another sweep on my favorite grooming brush.

You snooze Mom L, you loose

You snooze Mom L, you loose

Almost every night since these photos were taken, about 10 days ago, I come over to her as long as the blue fleece is in her lap, and put at least two paws onto her lap. I haven’t yet repeated that daring moment when I places all four paws on her lap—but we are all convinced that day is not long off.

Now if only Dad P can get better photos of me and Mom L can stay awake. Silly humans. I am making history in my journey toward recovery from trauma with humans and Mom L snooze while Dad P only has his smart phone.

Lemme ask you all a question—do you think I was making progress? Was I brave?

    Just when you think our kitties have made all of the progress they are going to make…..surprise!!! 🙂

  16. Whoa! You are so brave. Don’t think I would ever go that far. TW or Pop would never fall asleep with their hand in their lap cos they know my teeth would be around it in an instant.

  17. Ms. Savannah, you are one of the bravest!

  18. a small step for cats but a huge one for Savvy! I’m so glad to see you with your mom… are you counting the russianblue hairs she brushed out from your fur together?

  19. Oh, Savvy, you’re getting so brave! We’re so proud of how far you have come.

  20. You are CRAZY BRAVE, S!! I love being on Mom’s lap! Soon, you will be the sweet, cuddly lap cat you are meant to be. I hope your mom is awake to enjoy it….. Keep up the good, courageous work.

    Love and licks,

  21. You are being INCREDIBLY brave……two paws on the blankie on Mom’s lap is a BIG DEAL. It won’t be long before you’re a full-fledged lap kitty Savvy – I’m sure of it! YAY!

    Hugs, Sammy

  22. Wow! I haven’t even managed that one yet! and its not because we haven’t a sofa and nice fleecy blanket, though I d have a nice catalogue on home furnishings. purrs Erin

  23. Of course you were brave, Savvy! And smart too! There is no better place to be than in the lap of a human who is besotted with you (mol).

  24. You did AWESOME, Savannah! I’m very proud of you!
