Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Doesn’t Every Cat Have One?


Sometimes my Mom L makes me wanna just slap my paw to my forehead in disbelief. Do you ever feel that way about your humans?

So here’s one of my special peeves. Now let me ask all of my readers today—Do all of you make sure your human makes you a very nice cozy tent on the bed you share with them once they get outta your bed? SEE!! I knew it!! All of you shook your heads YES! I keep telling Mom L I most certainly am not the “only” cat that gets a tent made for me to snuggle in once she gets outta our bed. Why I learned all about how these tents get built and how special they are from my angel mentor Sammy, from One Two Spoiled Cats.

I don’t much care if I get my tent made in the Summer, but buddy it better get made and fast when the temps start to drop and the days get short and those nights get longer. Yes sirree!!

In fact, I am now so confident I never even leave the bed while Mom L is making my tent. I used to dash off because all her flappin’ and shakin’ of those bed covers and folding those blankets for me was just too much commotion. But now, I have to almost be made to move my body to give her space to make my tent! How’s that for progress? Even after SEVEN, yes SEVEN whole years with my Mom L and Dad P, I am still making progress on getting past my earlier traumas before picking them as my Mom and Dad.

What’d’ya mean? Spoiled?

So there you have it. I am not spoiled. I just like to snoopervise sometimes to make sure Mom L makes my tent just the way I like it.

Get a move on Mom L, you’re wasting daylight!

It takes a lot of skill to make my tent just right and sometimes I have to hang around close so I can do some building inspection.

No. I don’t want that blankie for my base. I want the one with stars from Alfie.

Mom L gets a bit lax when it comes to making the selection for the blanket that goes down first and that’s important because it’s the one that I lay on for cat’s sake!

Ok, ok, I’ll move over a bit to give you room to make it right.

She makes such a fuss about trying to get all the wrinkles out of the bed cover. Humans don’t get it that we cats never mind a wrinkle or two, makes it more cozy, don’t ya think?

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Luvluvluv Alfie’s blankie.

I got so excited about Alfie’s blankie I almost tried to zip under it!! MOL! Mom L had to make me wait until she got the rest of the tent structure in place.

Slurp…now this is gonna be a really great tent.

It continues to surprise Mom L and Dad P how casual I have become about all the motion that goes into making my tent. Just a year ago I would have been downstairs already!

Tuck in this corner better please

I have to be careful that the corners are tight otherwise TKS tries to find a way to get under part of my tent. And that doesn’t make me a happy kitty at all.

Yep. Nice tight corner, that’s the way I like it

Before Mom L can even get my favorite plaid blanket tent top set up I am already eager to check out my tent for the day.

Sweet! This is one of your better efforts Mom L

She leaves me a bit of a rear window in case I wanna check out what’s going on out on the water. I like to watch the boats going in and out of our channel.

Yikes! That boat is a big one!

So here I am, ready for my morning tent nap. Nice and cozy just like all us cats like our tents.

Isn’t this just the best!?

No you guys describe for me in comments how your humans make your tent. I bet’cha you have nifty ones too!

    Looks so comfy and cosy. Mom sometimes lifts the covers and supports just the sheet with my play wand.x😻💜🐾🐾

  4. You are quite the taskmaster, Savannah. Mom L better get with the program and make your tent the way you want it.

    Savvy, my mom has sadly NOT mastered the art of tent making except at night when we go to bed. There she makes an adequate one..but no great shakes.
    My Gotcha day is on the 16th. I hope you drop by. XXX

  9. Lucky kitty. Lucky – not spoiled. No such thing as spoiled. I can only have a tent when Mom is in bed with me. Once she’s up and out of the shower, the bedspread comes and I am banned!

    Love and licks,

  10. I need to get my momma to make me one! Except I always am up right away demanding breakfast.

  11. Savvy, this is the first I’ve heard of a bed tent! When my human gets up, we all get up with her, have breakfast, and follow her upstairs! We hang out in the living room while she works in her office.

  12. Savvy,

    Sings * That sure looks like Heaven to meeee *


    Sorry Savannah, Silver had a touch of the sun. His rendition on Three Steps to Heaven is usually better!


  13. we hear ya… our idea of the perfect tent is sadly far away from the tent our staff makes for us… why they can not understand that a tent needs a giant pile of blankets and pillows?

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