Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

I’m HOME!!!


Hear yee, hear yee!! The Princess did not move to Canada, she returned to her much loved home in Pittsburg, California!

Hey guys!! Thanks a ton for appreciating TKS and KK’s attempts at holding the “blog” in my absence and producing the last Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. IMHO—”they did good”!

So for anyone who follows my blog, and doesn’t know, I had the i 131/aka Radiocat hyperthyroidism treatment on January 21. I was in hospital for three nights. My first ever and last ever away stay from my castle.

So here’s my account of my rescue from the hospital.

First, I was so scared and nervous. But then I met my Registered Veterinarian Tech, Ms Erin, and I started to relax. Ms Erin was so kind and caring and compassionate. My treatment was at Animal Specialty Hospital in Oakland, CA.

So Mom L was totally in love with the art they use in their kitty area for intake and discharge. She had leaky eyes when Ms Erin brought me to her.

And then there was the one hour drive home. Mom L did the same thing she did when she and Dad P took me to hospital. She rode in the backseat so’s she could open my carrier and pet me to comfort me.

She even let me get my head and shoulders out to make sure that Dad P was driving safely and headed in the right direction—HOME!!

And then the moment arrived. I was HOME!!

Yeah, yeah, I know Mom L got me all blurry, but you get the idea, right? I was HOME!!

Well then I had to do an entire survey of my castle to make sure no changes had been made in my absence, and no “other” kitty had tried to use any of my stuff!

I started talking to Mom L and Dad P as soon as I left my carrier. I wanted them to know what I thought about this whole ordeal. I let them know that my RVT Ms Erin was super duper awesome. And that I know I am one fortunate kitty to be able to cure my hyperthyroidism. Not every kitty gets to have this. But, I turned out to be allergic to the less costly treatment, even using the transderamal gel on my ears. I started to vomit, then my ears started to itch and I got an infection in one ear. That’s why we all decided that I had to get the Radiocat treatment.

Moving forward…

My inspection of my castle was of course vocal. I meowed all my observations of any changes to Mom L and Dad P.

I checked out the down stairs and then went upstairs. Of course all the while I was being followed by my castle staff

They wanted to make sure I was pleased with how they took care of the castle in my absence. The toughest part was learning that the staff had taken advantage of using my preferred nip toy, the rainbow. A brand new one I got for Christmas in my stocking.

Phew!! Some other cat has spit on my fave Yeow nip rainbow!!

But then I found my holiday tree and it was scent and spit free!!

Ahhh…my spit is still on this one

I ended my inspection once I was assured that my favorite pink beddie was secure and ready for my long nap.

Thank you all for helping me escape. I am now taking a long needed nap

I am so happy that Dad P still serves me my meals anywhere I wanna eat.

Hey Dad P!! I am waiting!!

As some of you know I have lost about two pounds aka 900 grams.  I really need to get that weight back. I am trying, but I am also a very picky eater.

This is my current figure, I am very thin

Thankfully I have Mom L and Dad P to make sure I get whatever I need to keep me gaining weight. The last few days before my treatment, I was really grouchy and took that out on Katie and Sage.

Since my treatment, I am starting to allow closer relations with them.

I know you are butt bumping me Katie, but I want my treat more than giving you a paw whap! MOL

Life is good. Please send my your POTP to help me regain some weight. Thanks guys for being my pals.

  12. Oh My Cat Savvy we are SO glad you are home and it was an alright adventure. Our brofur Buddy Budd has hyperthyroid and we feel lucky he can take the pills, so does he. We really enjoyed watching you check things out and we are sure everything will be back to normal in no time. Please eat a bit more. We think you will now that the treatment is done. Buddy has his dinners in bed at night and insists on 3 courses until he eats it all with a walkabout or drink in between. Not sure what your preferences are but I know your great pawrents will figure that out. Many purrs, cuddle and love from us all

    Welcome home, Miss Savannah. Ya done good! I am glad you have such attentive staff. XOXO from Spitty

  24. Hooray for Home Sweet Home! And I had no idea you were getting that RadioCat treatment. Glad you were able to get that. And eat hearty OK??!

    Pipo was allergic to a transdermal medication he was getting, (not thyroid meds)…and we had to go back to pills, but at least he is easy to give pills to.
