Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

When stressed, get a massage


I bet’cha all of you have been having the same “shelter in place” stressful week we have had. Mom L called my pet sitter Miss Kandi to come over and help relieve some of my stress I was collecting from Mom L and Dad P. Oh my, what a great session we had.

First I arrange myself on my massage table; my stairs. I anchor my front with on paw on top of the step and the other on the bottom of the step and my hind paws anchor my butt.

Ok, you can start, deep tissue work today, OK?

Miss Kandi has the longest nails and they sink into my furs and rub and scritch all along my spine—heaven!!

Ahhhh….that’s just the spot between my shoulders

She just has a magical way of manipulating all my vertebrae from my neck to my tail.

Oh my, yes! The cervical area has been giving me some problems. Excellent!!

The first part was just fabulous and needed to take a bit of a break to collect my Zen space.

Whew—just what I needed

Next she moved onto my cranial massage portion.

Whoa!! I knew my brow area was feeling tense

Then to the base of my skull.

ohhhh—could you just leave your nails sunk into that muscle a moment more please?

Lastly, Miss Kandi always addresses my lower lumbar area, right around my taileo.

Ummmm—here it comes—I can’t help myself

She always get me to achieve total EB aka “Elevator Butt”.


After Miss Kandi was done, all I could do was sit on the stairs and try to collect my thoughts and emotions. But for sure, my stress level was way down.

I hope all of my readers and blog pals and their families can find a stress release like I did with Miss Kandi. These are troubling times and I know we all need to lean on each other for comfort and care.

    So lucky! How awesome that Miss Kandi made a house call to give you a massage, Savvy.

  3. You hit the jackpot there, S. I’ve lost count of the days in quarantine, but right about now, I’ll be fine if Mom will just leave me alone for 5 minutes! #quarantinelife #stoptouchingme

    Love and licks,

  4. I’m glad you got such awesome stress relief, Savvy! My human listens to guided meditations every day (she started doing this a few months ago), and she is trying to keep me busy.

  5. You are so lucky to get such a wonderful massage. We love your position when you are getting yours. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a fantastic rest of your day.

  6. WOW, that was some happy Savvy!

  7. Could you send Miss Kandi over to our house??? We could use a massage…especially the mom who is really stressing out about the current situation.

  10. Nuffin like a good massage!

  11. massages are good… maybe the neighbors should listen to that cat wisdom before they get da cabin fever…

  12. My mum gives the best massages and oh they are bliss,xx Speedy

  13. We are not allowed to have unnecessary contacts, such as hair salons, or massages here either, by decree of the gov of MI…bummer actually, cause petcretary was supposed to get a haircut in a couple of days. Now she will get shaggy…like Benji, MOL!

  14. No massages here anymore – as people would have to come in too close contact with one another.

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