Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Getting Together More—My Progress Continues


Now I don’t wanna get my readers too excited, but our recent move has had a promising affect on TKS and me. You see, we both kind’a like being in the same room together. If I am in one room, TKS usually ends up there and preferably as close to me as I let her get. And, if she is in a room, I sometimes search her out and join her—again not too close mind you.

My progress just keeps on showing up. Mom L and Dad P are sure I am more confident in this home and I know I am!!

Our first morning in our home found TKS on the top and me on the bottom level of the cat tree in our bedroom. We were both pretty fascinated with that flowing water outside. We had never seen such a thing. We stayed here for a couple of hours. We knew we were safe together.

Watching the water flow past our bedroom balcony—amazing!

After we exited our safe room the following day, we found a way we could both help snooze while Dad P was setting up the TV stuff.

We luvluvluv the new coffee table with the cat bed on the bottom

Sometimes I get to sleep on the lower coffee table cat bed if TKS gets to the couch before me. Guess Mom L won’t be putting any of her little decorative stuff on that shelf, na’ mean??

One of our soon to be fave spaces to share is the medium size cat tree in front of the living room window. I prefer the doughnut hole and TKS favors the top. Works out great for both of us. If I get there first, I don’t ever even hiss at her when she rocks the tower with her leap to the top!

And I have even begun to allow TKS to get ever closer and closer to me when we both share the couch. This is the closest we have been forever. I kind’a like havin’ The Kid around I guess.

Almost butt to butt—we may never touch butts, but we are comfy

Our latest space to share is in Mom L’s office. I found a totally safe and comfy spot when Mom L put some of her soon to be wall hangings on the black chair. She is still trying to decide where to hand them, so I took advantage of the cat bed she created. What cat wouldn’t? Right!!

Ahhh…this is divine!

Now Mom L’s office chair is about three feet (.9 meters) away from my spot. Her office chair is black. When she entered to take this photo of me, she started to turn her chair around to sit in it and guess who she found? TKS!!! So when I am in my black chair, TKS always grabs Mom L’s office chair to hang out with me and seriously—I don’t mind at all.

I luvluvluv being close to Savvy

I know that is a lousy photo of TKS, but the office window is behind her and Mom L didn’t want to make me run away. I’ll make sure we get a better photo of us together in this special spot.

Now this last place we like to share is also what I call “Savannah’s great big cat tree”. I mean our carpeted stairs. I have always luvluvluv’s having a carpeted stair case to be able to run up and down and to have Mom L play with me going from stair to stair and across the step chasing my peacock feather. I guess TKS thought she would try to be Mom L!  MOL!!!

Come’on Savvy. I’m moving your favorite feather! Play with me!

There you have it. Another progress report. I am still growing in confidence and willingness to accept TKS more and more. I may be twelve to thirteen years old, but I still have a lot more I know I can do.

  3. This makes us so happy! You both look so content in each other’s company, Savannah and Sage.

  4. These photos melted our hearts. Way to go Savvy and TKS.

  5. Great progress, we think when it gets cold you might even cuddle with her. Cuddling is great you will LOVE it, we promise.

  6. Wow – like you two are just getting along – right? This must be a magic spot. I guess a lot of magic flows in the river and floats up to your house!

    Well done both of you!!!

  7. Paws up, Savvy! It’s great to see you and TKS sharing space like that. The photo of the two of you napping on the sofa together made us smile, especially. It seems like this move has been good for both of you.

    • Our move had changes all our lives for the better. Some things like certain kinds of shopping are a bit more challenging, but to wake every day and look out on moving water and boats coming and going…and hearing sea lions barking in the early morning hours, the lonesome train whistles in the night…pretty darn awesome

  8. Whoa! Soon you’re gonna have a new BFGF.

  9. That’s pawsome news, Savvy. Before you know it, you’ll be cuddled up together.

  10. This is a great story, you are already really near each others. Some day you will sleep together.

    Such perfect evidence of a very good relationship between you and TKS. Isn’t it nice to have another furry close by?

  12. Looks like you both enjoy your new place. Fantastic cat towers you have there.
    Enjoy your week,

    • Hi Mr. Pit!! *waves paw* So nice to see you in my comments. I hope you did not suffer any loss or damage in the Texas hurricane. At least I think that is where you live?

      • Hi Savannah,
        Yes, you’re right: I do live in Texas. In the beautiful Hill Country. And that also alswers your question: we ddin
        t suffer any loss or damage from Harvey. We’re too far from the coast. Thank you for your concern, though. I appreciate it very much.
        Btw, we have a cat named “Savannah”, too. She is a Savannah-cat breed. Very independently minded, and very vocal.
        Have a great week, and regards to TKS,
        Pit and the furry = purry crew

  13. We totally love seeing you two close like that, it makes my heart smile!

  14. You are both doing so well after a massive change. I reckon the shared experience is helping bond you both, as advisory does. A big plus is that you as a family have found your forever home together and such an awesome one too! keep up the fun and exploring and before you know it you’ll not only be bum to bum but side by side.

  15. Wow Savannah good on you, this is so great to see. Way to go girl.
    High paws to you from us

  17. I’m so glad that you and Sage are getting along so well in the new place, Savannah! I’m not surprised, though – since you arrived there together, you had the common experience of exploring it at the same time, and it was new territory for you both!

  18. that is the evidence that your pawrents found THE PAWFECT PAWLACE… maybe the one who said there is a kind of karma in all houses was right… and the karma of your house is full of love and joy im sure…

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
