Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

The Story: Sunday Selfie Mystery Guest


I have always wanted to say this even though there probably aren’t any more news presses that work these days—

I am certain you all remember my blog post about the mom cat and her kitten who are our first successful cat trap effort. Well, mom cat aka Mandi and her kitten aka Boogie, have been living for a week in my our office, in those luxurious cages I shared last week.

Boogie clearly showed signs of being open to human touch and interaction.

So we are already set up for her to move to Kitty Corner once Mom L and Dad P have her more socialized. Right now they are teaching her how to play with humans. More on that next week, so stay tuned.

It broke Dad P and Mom L’s hearts, but we had to release Mandi back to her home at the lodge where she was trapped. After a week, she still had little interest in human interaction. But, there is still hope for Mandi. Her feeder, Miss Kandi, is working with her to try to get her to allow pets. At least Mandi won’t ever have more kittens to care for as she is about five years old. She needs to enjoy her life without kittens to care for.

Mandi was very much ready to go home too.

She clearly knew exactly where she was once she was released. Please watch this eleven second video. You can see that Mandi knew she was home the way she darts behind that wooden pallet, her refuge for over a year or more.

Miss Kandi continues to feed Mandi and we hope their bond will continue to grow so that we may once again offer Mandi the opportunity of being adopted into a caring home.

The same day that Mom L and Miss Kandi released mom cat Mandi, I also had Mom L taking care of another adult abandoned cat on the opposite street corner. Miss Kandi has named him Pumpkin! And that fits for sure!!!

Pumpkin is fortunate that my former cat, Vet Dr. Josie, was willing to travel to Pumpkin’s Corner and administer his rabies, FVRCP and flea treatment— right on the street corner he calls home! And that is how Dr. Josie rolls—anything for the kitties!!

Pumpkin needed those vaccinations to be able to allow Mom L to take him to our public animal shelter where he well go on temporary “Owner Surrender” status to learn if he can tolerate being in the shelter while he waits for an adopter. Mom L can spring him loose in three days if he doesn’t adjust well. Pumpkin is so friendly, loves pets, purrs, can be picked up—he just needs a chance at a new home. You see, his former “family” abandoned him on that street corner when they moved from the apartment complex. He is likely a senior cat.

So there was one more Paw It Forward Project over the weekend. Miss Kandi had a new male kitty to join her little 6 pack over where she works. His name is Sweet Pea and he was not neutered. So Mom L and Dad P got him into the new cat clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats just this morning.

I really want to hear from any readers about what you think of my latest Paw It Forward Projects. I had Dad P and Mom L working on not one, not two, not three but FOUR projects this last ten day. How do you think we are doing so far???

    Hi, Savannah! You look just like me – Kookie! And Boogie looks like my adopted sister, Kiko!
    We were both adopted from the Cleveland Animal Protective League – me, in 2011, when I was five months old, and Kiko, in 2014, when she was four years old. I tolerate her living in my house, but she’s so much the cliche – a “scaredy cat”! I wonder what she went through before Mom adopted her!
    You are so special – thank goodness for people like you!
    Take care – nice to meet you!
    P. S. Mom had a dog named Mandy years ago!
    P. P. S. I wanted to post my picture so you could see what I mean, but I couldn’t see how.

    I hope Pumpkin can adjust and get a forever home. Thank you to your folks for all they do to help these poor kitties.

  10. This is so great! We purr that Boogie finds a home..and that Mandi can learn to accept humans so she can find a home as well.

  11. Mary McNeil on said:

    What a wonderful job ny everyone involved.

  12. We are so proud of the wonderful things you and your peeps are doing!

    Your mum and dad are working so hard to help the kitties. I hope Mandi does eventually become more accustomed to humans so that one day she can have her forever home too.
    Pumpkin is adorable!

  14. Wow you have had you humans so very busy on wonderful tasks and got great results too. Great community support too for those cats in need, that is awesome and inspiring. I hope pumpkin gets to a new home very soon. Being dumped when young is bad enough but as an oldie it’s really tough…
    Sending them all lots of purrs

  15. We absolutely love what your mom and dad are doing. We wish our humans would do what they do instead of bringing in yet another new brother. Paws up for Mom L and Dad P. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  16. Those 3 cats all sounded special to me.

  17. Excellent report…. your people are PAWSOME! Thank you 😻

  18. How awesome that Boogie has a chance to be socialized and adopted! Mandi is so pretty, it’s a bummer she doesn’t want to be a home cat. Paws crossed for Pumpkin.

    I just want to say, your humans are doing AMAZING work!!!

  19. I hope there is a way for Miss Kandi and Mandi…and I’m sure they will find together… miracles happen, when love is included, right?

  20. If I just was not that far away – I am so willing to adopt pumpkin … but living in Germany that is simply out of the question.
