Remember Sam? I have an update!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I posted on July 29th the tail tale of Sam aka Samantha aka Sammy’s capture to be able to treat a severe injury. We thought Sammy was a girl, then a boy, then a girl and finally once we got “him” to our county animal services, they confirmed “IT’S A BOY”!!!

Well Sam was released from Contra Costa County Animal Services (CCAS) to Miss Jane’s care in early August. CCAS staff and medical docs treated him like the elegant young mancat he is. We are proud that CCAS is one of our key partners for my latest Paw It Forward Project, Project Delta View Cats (PDVC).

We also have the great good fortune to have a wonderful working relation with Furry Friends Pet Relief as they are the rescue that found a very reasonably priced veterinarian, Central Boulevard Vet Hospital, who knows how to manage feral kitties, to do Sam’s much needed dental. Sam was boarding on stomatitis so we weren’t sure what would happen and how many toofies he might need extracted.

 

Good news!! Sam had NO extractions!! And one of our wonderful volunteers, Miss Kandi, donated the cost of his dental. So after that, Sam went to have a very nice relaxing recovery at Miss Jane’s home.

Check out the amazing set up Sam had thanks to Miss Jane and her hubby Mr Bob. Sam was catered to and cared for and we believe he is ready to be released back to our park colony this next week.

I know that Sam will always remember Miss Jane, his protector and care giver. He will be looking for her to serve up his meals once released at PDVC’s park colony.

So tell me all about any successful recovery stories you have when you helped out an injured or ill community cat?

PeeEss—Mom L is having her first cataract surgery this week so I won’t be back until next Monday. Paw hugs, Savvy

Monday Meowsie News: Can we please get some POTP?

HIYA!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I decided to let my little foster kitten Miss Lillian aka Lilly have the blog post today. As you can see in the following photos, she kind’a sort’a took over Mom L’s computer so I just said “go for it kid!!”

Hmmm…now that is one fine photo of a darling kitten

As you all know, I don’t try to help Mom L with the blog technical stuff. I am more of a “visionary” cat. And besides, I just can’t jump up on her desk anymore—darn arty-right-us!! But Miss Lilly sure can get up there and I think she did a mighty fine job of it.

Oh, nice composition…but it looks a tad off focus on me!

So Miss Lilly tinkered a bit more and finally seemed satisfied.

I changed focus to me so’s to not wake up Auntie Katie

What can I say, except that our foster kittens, nine month old Katie and four month old Lilly, have been with us for almost five months and they are tryin’ to take over my blog!!

Now about the POTP request in my headline. You see, sweet Miss Lilly has been very sick since about last week of October. She has been to emergency with Dad P two times and to three different clinics. Unfortunately, her blood work indicates, but doesn’t prove, that she may be a genetic liver shunt kitten. Mom L and Dad P are taking her to a special Veterinarian tomorrow, Tuesday.

Please if you have a moment, send sweet precious Lilly your most kind and caring POTP. We may not be able to save her so she can find her forever home. But Mom L and Dad P sure as heck are gonna try and The Kid Sage and I are right there with them.

Quadruple Guest Selfies

HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!!

Goodness gracious! I am having so much fun bringing you some special guest selfies and have you guess what my Monday blog post will reveal about them.

Here are four kitten siblings who are my guest quadruple selfies for The Kitties Blue Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. Paw that badge and head on over to see what’s going on!

Sunday Selfies BadgeThis the original foursome before I had Mom L do some stuff with edits and whatnot. These cute kittens were brought in for their checkup and blood draw to do their snap tests for FeLV and to get their vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. They are being fostered by a loving human with Community Concern 4 Cats (CC4C). They are VERY fortunate kittens to be under the care of CC4C. Come back Monday and I will tell you why.

Oh hi! What'cha doin' up there?

Oh hi! What’cha doin’ up there?

I had Mom L do some stuff with Lunapic.com, and then using Picmonkey and finally PiZap. This is what I ended up with. What do you guys think??

Do we look greate or what??!!

Do we look great or what??!!

Now let me ask all of you who visit and view these photos, can you tell me which one of these four sibling kittens has a problem? And tell me WHY you think you know. I will let you know the real dealio tomorrow on my Monday blog post. Stay tuned.
