UPDATE: Feline Express™ Driver
HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!!
All my long time readers know that Mom L , with my support of course, is now a Certified Feline Express™ Driver for Outcast Cat Help (OCH). OCH has an agreement with Contra Costa County Animal Services as their Return to Field transfer partner. For those of you who have joined me recently you can catch up on this life saving program in the links at the bottom of this post. Paw pats for checking out those links—guaranteed to put a smile on your face, seriously.
Times change and the Return to Field (RTF) program is kicking in big time. That means Mom L needs HELP!!! (click to bigify next image)
Guess who stepped up?? Come on, all of you who have known me for a while recognize this CATMAN to the rescue!!
And clearly just by being present with Mom L, the Feline Express™ Driver, he MUST be good with cats. After all, I am his very special Savannah, The Princess. My Dad P totally loves me and I am now showing him how much I love him. More to come about that new development in my purrsonal progress.
I have digressed, let’s get on with Mom L’s most recent assignment. We had three kitties to Return To Field. One was a youngster, about six months old, brown tabby girl. This little girl was sooooo scared. She kept her back to the front of the Feral Den. The front of the den has a clear plexi-glass door which is why Feline Express™ Drivers always cover it with paper.
Another was about one year old, again brown tabby girl. (can you see Mom L’s reflection in the plexi glass door? So hard to not have reflection as all must be done so fast as to not cause these kitties any further stress)
And the third cat was a very handsome male, Mr TomAboutTown cat, maybe three years old.
All were returned to the same address and all were welcomed back by their caregiver. In transit, all cats have their plexi glass front door covered in paper for their privacy and need for seclusion.
At last the beginning of the release.
And here she goes—
Next Mom L released the other tabby girl—
And last, the Tomcat. He was reluctant to leave at first.
The next try with Tomcat was so fast it challenged Mom L’s new Assistant Driver’s smart phone reactions. All they captured was this—
Community cat rescue totally rocks!! Here is hoping all of my readers will push their local rescues to adopt the Return To Field program for community cats. Let’s all “humanely manage the community cat population”.
Paw It Forward
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH

Your mum is doing such great things! And good thing your dad has opposable thumbs so that he’s able to help out, too. Purrs, Seville.
I think TomCat didn’t want to go…MOL 😀 Paws Up for all the work your mom and dad are doing. Give them an Extra Pawkiss for that 🙂 ❤
This is such a great program, and our mom is so happy that Dad P is now helping out. He and Mom L can share the good feelings of doing this for these kitties as a team. Keep up the good work. Our mom was smiling through this entire post. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
That is such a pawsome program and we already know your peeps really rock and are cat rescue royalty. Wish TW could drive.
Whooa! Kudos to you
Lily & Edward
That’s pawsome, Savvy! An paws up to Dad P for taking the job as assistant. Your humans are quite the rescue dynamic duo now!
They never expected to be, but there is so much work to be done for the community cats in our county. I could not let them be idle, and what the heck else do they have to do with their time, right?
Your parents are very nice people.
oh Miss Ellen, why yes, yes they are. At least I think that and so does TKS
GUYS….EWE WERE MOOVIN FASTER N THOZ CARZ ON YUR STREET !!!
and S & S…..de new helper dood seems familiar two uz…….hmmmmmmm wear haz we seen yur dad bee fore ? !!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 ♥♥♥♥
MOL! Dad P was lettin’ that Mr Tomcat go and Mr Tomcat was not moving. So Mom L moved in for a close up video. Mr Tomcat decided in a nano second to make his break for it; he was gone so fast all Mom L could get was him disappearing down the street. ANd Dad P got a bruise on his shin from the feral den flying back from Mr Tomcat’s tremendous paw force as he left that den. Way fun!
Paws up to your pawrents ! They are real heroes ! Purrs
appreciate your compliment—please let me know when I have posted too much about the cat rescue work Mom L does. I know for some it is not new news, but it is for me
A big huge SAMMY hug for your Mom and Dad – they are heroes – they are helping the feline community is a BIG way!
purrs Sammy. Now I worry maybe I am sayin’ too much about what Mom L is up to. I have one more big deal she did, and Dad P helped in the second stage but Mom L did a ton to—well, best not reveal too much. stay tuned for Monday post
We meant Feline Express™ Drivers BOL!!!!
purrs, and play bows Nuk for using the ™ on Feline Express ! We are gonna try to do something cool with that trademark later this year
Transporters are real heroes!
we applaud your efforts every time!!!
We hope your Mom and Dad are delighted that they are returning the kitties back to their homes – we would like to say a big thank you to them.
and I will accept and purrr for your “thank you”. It is hard, most of the time the caretakers want them back and state that on the stray surrender form at the shelter.
Those kitties are going to live a better life now, thanks to RTF!
Savi, I have the impression that Mr TomAboutTown wanted to stay around you…
How better this is than what could befall these dear little kitties. Hope this catches on more and more. purrs for a very good job, well done. purrs
wow that is just great!!!! I wish we would live closer then I would send my dad to OCH too (not the mama, she is a dangerous driver lol)
So glad that Dad P has gotten in on the RTF! He and Mom L are the BEST!!!! Thanks for sharing Savvy!
You have taught your parents well, S.
Love and licks,
Thi s makes me SO PROUD on you it really does Savvy. Mom L and Dad P have rocked the RTF haven’t they! Wow , and o good to see this working so well.
How awesome that both your humans are now working to get these kitties back to their homes! Those poor cats looked so scared – they had no idea they hit the feral jackpot by a) getting a free spa day and b) being allowed to return to the place they know.
hey, hey Summer! Appreciate your “concats” for my Mom L and Dad P. And yes, the kitties are quite scared, but they surely can move fast. Where they are returned to remains concern for some, but so far, Mom L has only done those that the trapper has agreed to have them back.
