Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Do You Pole Dance?


I shared a few photos in a past blog post of my returning interest in my first cat tree, which I have not played on for three years. fancy catletic paw work on my favorite cat tree. But I am going a bit farther in my progress now than just weeks ago.

My moves would make a human pole dancer green with envy, seriously!!  In fact I’m expecting a call any day now from the French Cirque du Soleil folks. I know they will be wanting me to teach their performers some of my special moves.

Check out my set up for my ‘Wrap Around the Pole” move. First, I get leverage using my hind paws and claws. Yep, those claws give us cats a good advantage over the humans. Then I reach up to grab the pole with my right paw and claws.

Whoopsy do! And then I FLIP and WRAP three paws and claws on the pole and I keep one hind paw and claw set hooked onto the platform to help give me lift!

My progress is all about my continuing growth in my relationship with Mom L. I come to her with a certain pitch to my “meows” that immediately let her know I am looking for a play session with her. My cat tower is right near her work area so she just turns around, gets a feather toy and “BOOM”!! We are playing!!

Do you invite your humans to play with you? How do you do that?

  6. Look at you go, Savannah! Thimble is the pole dancer around here. When the kitties around here want to play, they also “tell” their mom so. Happy dancing, Savannah!

  18. Work that pole, Savannah! When I was a little cat, there was a divider in our house that had a pole on it. It was wood. I climbed that thing and slide down numerous times. The mom said I was quite the pole dancer, too. ~Wally

  20. I bring a sparkle ball to my human to let her know I want to play fetch! Of course, this also means I have STOLEN it from where she hides them (she only lets me play with them under supervision because I tend to eat the sparkles).

  21. no twolegged poledancer can do such fabulous moves…. bravo!!! and the huge progress you made is like a miracle… and with following your blog I know now that miracles sure can happen ;o)
