Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Come Fly With Me Sammy My Mentor


By now my readers all know that the Power Of The Paw has been workin’ round the clock to make sure our long time pal and my mentor, Sammy Kimmel, knows we all have his back. Sammy, One Spoiled Cat, is not well but then he is a senior gentleman cat of some sixteen years.

So all his pals know about his famous Tuesday Teaser blog post where he posts photos from around the world and readers have to guess where each location is. Ya see, Sammy is what’s called a “staytravelin” cat. Yep, yep, that’s right. Sammy “stays” at home while his blog does the “travelin”. Got it?!

We all agreed to post today, this very same day, all of us, in honor of all the travelin’ Sammy has had us doin’ for the last few years. Each of us gets to pick a place or places we just know Sammy would totally luvluvluv to visit with us.

For me, because I am a member of AdventurCats™, I have the ability to go back and forth in time. I choose to have Sammy Come Fly With Me, Savvy, to some of my most memorable Sammy led trips. All of these happened in my first year and a half of blogging and they are literally my most fond memories.

Come on Sammy!! Let’s zip back in time and have a BLAST FROM THE PAST!!!

Come on Savvy—let's get going!!

Come on Savvy—let’s get going!!

Halloweenie was never the same once Sammy touched it. His Halloweenie Pawtays are legend. Always a contest with best costume. Here are some of my fondest memories…

I probably should have told Leo what "for dinner" meant—na'mean??

And then The Kid Sage joined the fun at Sammy’s Halloweenie Pawtays.


Sammy also took us on a spin to the moon and back. And guess what? That is exactly how much my pal and lifetime mentor Sammy means to me…my hero and pal to the moon and back…over and over again!

Sammy’s Moon Trip:




My most favorite destination trip Sammy took us on was the tent camping and then a bit of beach hangin’ out!. Now why would I mention this Sammy Travel Trip?

Why of course!!! Because I WON the BEST DECORATED TENT!!!

Please notice my purrfect location!


And now inside my tent as I host some of my long time pals.


Let me know in comments who you identify five of the seven photos I brought along with me might be. Just a hint—they might not all have blogs and maybe “Reader Without Blogs (RWB)”.

And who are my two guests in for foreground???

There you have it. I know that Sammy will definitely wanna COME FLY WITH ME to our shared memories of the best ever trips and events in Blogville ever. Sammy is all about the fun, the adventure the travel and the everlasting furriendships we create in Blogville. Sammy has never cared what my Google Analytics look like and for that, he has my everlasting loyalty and love and appreciation.

Sammy, yes you are ONE SPOILED CAT, and well deserved my buddy, totally well deserved. Thank you my furriend for all the fun and I so look forward to a kabillion more Sammy Trips!!

  1. You are such an adventurer. We love to travel with you. We are sad that Sammy and Easy can’t come play anymore, but we know that you will keep their spirit alive on your trips. – Your friends at DogDaz Zoo

    • I know I don’t visit often. Mom and I have been workin’ on this and with the loss of Easy and Sammy …we know what to do. Our attention was drawn away from the fun of blogging and our true blog furriends. We will be coming back. Just give us a bit of time over the holidays. Thank you for continuing to be my furriends

  2. This was such a bittersweet day because it turned into Sammy’s Farewell Tour. We’re sure he enjoyed going back to revisit those wonderful times with you.

  3. Oh, I know, the grief is still strong in Sammy’s home – but seeing your MommaKat badge and thinking that she IS a hero herself … I know, Sammy’s folks need to grieve first and they live far away. But they have a home full of love Sammy had to leave behind. Yes, it’s not around the corner – but some people save kitties from Spain or Greece and bring them to Germany or the UK – some even bring a South American stray dog over to the US. Is it so impossible to dream – at Christmas time?

  22. Hi Sweet Savvy……..thanks for taking me on a trip down memory lane – we truly have had a whole lot of fun these years….I used to do a whole lot more on my blog – now that I’m an Angel, maybe I’ll conduct a few tours of the Bridge or maybe we’ll see some other planet than the Moon since I can travel in the blink of an eye!

    As the original RWB we want to raise our paws and say that we were there in your pawsome beach retreat. We are saddened to hear that “OneSpoiledCat”s famous Sammy is feeling poorly. We will keep sending purrs of encouragement in hope it will help him feel better, 🕯

  30. I love your post, Savannah – I’m afraid my entry is quite a bit more modest than yours.

  31. Clowie on said:

    That’s a lovely post, Savvy. You had me smiling at the shared memories and I even appear in your tent.
