Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Over the Threshold and Through the Door We Go


Catchy title don’t you think? Well, it’s about time I give you a peek at some of the incredible progress I have been making since we moved to our permanent home. Mom L thinks this home is changing all of us in lots of cool ways, and me especially.

I We have this really nice small balcony off of my our master bedroom. It was made especially charming when we had the redwood replaced to clean up some dry rot. Anyway, now it’s all nice and whatnot, Mom L used some gift cards Dad P got a while back to purchase a nice little table and chairs for them to enjoy having coffee on said balcony in the mornings.

Guess who they invited to join them the first time they used the balcony? Yup! Me and The Kid Sage. Now unfortunately when they made this invite, I was down stairs taking my second nap so TKS was the first to be invited OUTSIDE!

Hey! This air smells really fresh!

TKS enjoyed herself lots as she explored the balcony and what lies beyond and under it.

Is that our master bedroom on the other side? Am I outside??

Silly cat. She knew she was taking the big step to the outside.

Gosh, I can see all of our patio and the water.

And then she made a most remarkable discovery.

Hey Dad P! I can see through this crack all the way down!!

At least she didn’t forget about me getting my chance to be outside.

‘Scuse me, I’m gonna go get Savvy so she can be outside too.

I don’t know if TKS was ever outside before she came to live at my castle. But I sure was outside way more than I wanted to be. So being outside hasn’t been at the top of my priority list, na’mean?? I spent enough time outside trying to fend for myself and it wasn’t pretty. But, Mom L offered me the decision to be outside with her.

What Mom L? I know the door is open.

I could feel the really fresh air and I knew there was no screen between me and that redwood deck.

I don’t know if I wanna go out. Been there, done that

I took my time thinking through my choices.

Oh alright. I’ll come outside and have a look see just to please TKS.

I knew TKS was gonna interrogate me once I went back downstairs, so I took a little “walk about”.

Hmmm…looks like the neighbors have some pretty flowers on their patio.

Mom L wasn’t expecting me to do a critique of our out doors area, but hey? She invited me out, right?

Mom L? What don’t we have any pretty flowers for me and TKS to enjoy on our patio?

Ok, ok—maybe I was to quick to judge. I know we haven’t been here that long and Mom L has been busy with other stuff. So I moved right along.

Wow! I can see the water even better from here! Is that a fishie I saw jumpin’??

No kidding, we have fish in our fresh water marina and people fish for the fishies all the time from their boat docks. Our water moves all day long with the tides from the two river delta area.

I was very relaxed being outside once again, much to Mom L’s relief and mine. I am growing in my confidence every day since we moved here. Why I even allowed one of Mom L’s friends to pet me last week. In fact, I INVITED her to join me on my our new living room area rug to rub my whole body, give me ear rubs AND I let her pet my tummy!! Yes, I really did!! That, my pals, is progress!!

  5. Dear Ms Savannah and Ms Sage,
    What a wonderful new home you have! And that you can go out on the deck. I have not been outside since I was rescued in Tehran, but now I have a lovely catio on my Mommy’s deck! It is glorious to be out in the fresh air (even if there is screen between me and everything). And that you have a great view is even better.
    We have been following your posts and your move, but we have not commented much. Mommy has been ill but she is feeling better and tells me we will comment more!

  6. WOW! I am really impressed. You have both taken some pretty amazing steps of late, and not just onto the balcony. Keep up the good work because I think you have crested that hill and the rest should be fair sailing for you all.
    Toodle-oo till next time
