One Thousand Posts and Counting
HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Oh My Cat!! Who would have EVER thought I would be posting my ONE THOUSANDTH BLOG POST!! Certainly not me and totally NOT Mom Linda!! (aka Mom L)
We started with very humble intentions of sharing with volunteers about my life after Contra Costa Humane Society’s Kitty Corner. Kitty Corner is a free roaming, private, no kill shelter for adult and special need cats pulled from my local municipal shelter. And yes, they also take in kittens from the shelter during “kitten season”. But their focus is on adult cats—like me.
Mom started taking my dictation around the second week I was with her and Dad P, which was December 9, 2011. Here is the first letter I sent to my former roomies and caretakers. I was with Mom and Dad for about twelve days. Mom thought it would be fun to have me send a note back to my roomies and let them know how great I was doing in foster care.
I think this was probably my fifth blog post. I was just learning how to communicate my messages to Mom L, ‘cuz as you know, she has those silly thumbs! 12/21/2011
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO MY ROOMIES AT KITTY CORNER
Hi Guys! Just wanted to let you know how I am doing with my Foster Mom (FM) and Foster Dad (FD). They are so cute! They just wait on me hand and foot, no kidding, really—who knew!! I share their, well, I guess now “our”, master bedroom and bath—and they let me roam the whole house, even up stairs now. Pretty cool, huh?
So, here’s what I am up to. You can see me in the photo above, just relaxing, sitting on FM’s toes—yes my butt is on her feet. Warm. I had just been playing with my new catnip toy, running around and amusing her—she likes that. I also have a scratching post, actually two—one down stairs and one up stairs—crazy huh? They just love spoiling me!! Anyways, I hide out under their, oops, I mean our, bed most of the day. But I come out, entertain them, let them pet me lots and I go exploring around when they are not watching—love those birds on their our deck.
One thing I learned about myself, and its kind’a embarrassing—I am afraid of my FD—not him personally—just that he is a “guy”. I am warming up to him—he is really kind and talks gushy to me—such a cutie he is. Above you can see a photo of me with him, and yes, I am sitting on his toes too. I don’t know what it is; I just like having my butt resting on someone’s feet. Go figure.
So I really am finding I like to be petted, and then I can’t stop myself, I just start purring! I love when FM pets me all the way out to the tip of my tail. She sometimes just pets my tail and holds it—really nice, I like that. FM and I have been working on my waistline—I know—some of you were too nice to say, but I was getting a bit pudgy. So we have this routine to help my gluts get tighter which slims down my waist a bit. She starts her pet at my head and when she get to my back-end, I lift my butt all the way off the floor, then she starts again, while I lower, then we repeat it 5 times for two sets. Whew!! It is tiring, but I am looooookking gooood—woo hoo! (2016,I realized this is a condition known as EB, or elevator butt.)
Well, just a couple of more things and then I have to run—I am really very busy these days, not like I was when I was hanging out at KC. Really, you guys just would not believe it is me and only a week away so far. Now,above you see me just crashed on our bed. This was cleaning day—some stranger shows up and cleans the house—scary! So when she left, FD and FM found me crashed on the bed. I was exhausted from being on guard. I let them get in bed with me, but I never moved. FM uses her electric blanket—LOVE THAT! So I stayed close to her all night. Well, gotta go now, catch ya all later, Savannah
