HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Super happy to see you guys show up to check in on all the girls in my castle. Yup, that’s right, this is Savannah’s Castle! So, Sage aka The Kid Sage aka TKS and Katie aka Kit Katie aka KK are both doing just great. 

Only little blip on the future for KK is that she must have another dental in February 2021 to remove most of the toofies on the right side of her mouth. That demon “gingivitis/stomatitis” continues to haunt my little tiny sisfur. Otherwise, she is running around at night aka 3 AM chasing who knows what demons all around the wood floors—yes Mom L wakes up! Last night KK figured out how to turn on our television in our shared master bedroom. Of course she did this at about 2 AM!! YUP!! Humans not happy!!

As for TKS, she is her usual hang out, follow the humans wherever they go and always, always be present and aware when they are anywhere near anything that looks like FOOD! TKS is about eight years old now and thankfully has shown zero signs of any health issues. Well—if we don’t count her obsession with food! *wink, wink*.

Now for me. Yes I do have early onset, stage one of CKD. BUT—I am now eating several kinds of awesome low phosphorus with a balance of protein wet foods. And they are pate foods but with lots of fluids! I think I may have to start watching my waistline! I still play when I want to and always try to get my snuggles with Mom L at night on the couch and if the mood strikes me.

Hope you enjoyed our little progress report.

A little spilled nip

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well you guys know that I don’t mind a bit of nip every now and again. But I can also just walk on by and not even take a whiff. Not so my little sisfur Katie.

Oh hey Mom L? What’cha gonna do with that nip container?

All Mom L had to do was open that refill nip container and KK was right at her feet. Mom L was trying to refill some of our nip toys and KK was more than ready to give her an assist.

Oh look! I found some spilled nip in the rug!!

And that was all she wrote! KK was on a nip trip!

Ohhhh it smells divine; I could rub it all over my face!

This is the really good stuff, huh Mom L?

Ummm…yum…I’m gonna dab some behind my ears for later

What’s that you said Mom L?

You think I had enough? Can any kitty ever have enough nip?

Uh oh?

I think I have a tummy ache and maybe a headache too…

So much for self control when it comes to inhaling and eating a batch of spilled nip. Na’mean?? So have you ever had a nip hangover??

Nip time never gets old

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First off I wanna say how sorry I am that I missed my last Monday’s blog post. Mom L and I were all set to get down to writing, but then I had a really bad pain in my right hind leggie and Mom L and Dad P dashed me off to our best animal emergency hospital. It always happens on a Sunday, right? Long story short, it seems I have a soft tissue injury likely gotten when I was trying to get away from that little foster introoder Pipsqueak. He is a five month old black kitten who is always tryin’ to sniff my tail or my butt. Sheeesh! I got some pain meds and that helped lots, but then I had to make another last minute trip to my regular vet two days later. I have a urinary tract infection, perhaps caused by stress?

I am lots better now, but I am still spending most of my daytime napping behind the couch. I am very cautious around the foster Pip. He is such a gentle kitten, not aggressive at all. I just don’t want another kitten to get used to; Katie was enough. Hopefully he will find his true forever home soon!

Now on to my happy nip post! Even an old gal like me, at 14 years, can still enjoy some sniffin’ and pawin’ at nip, right? Mom L loaded up the scratcher on our ball chasin’ toy and sat back to see who would try the nip out first. Guess who??? ME!!!

Mom L wasn’t fast enough to catch me rubbing my face in the nip, all she got were my “what’cha lookin’ at” looks!! MOL

You interrupted me!!

And she got another one trying to capture me enjoying myself!

Come on Mom L; cut out that photo stuff!

We sure did get some great video of Katie havin’ a total Nip Out! She wasn’t gonna share that nip with anyone, not even her new buddy foster kitten Pipsqueak.

Katie was too busy to even notice Mom L and her camera.

She was happy to touch noses with foster Pipsqueak but she wasn’t movin’ over to let him onto that scratcher.

When Katie stopped, she just kind’a stared off into space for a bit! Silly Katie.

Whoa!! Why is the room spinning??

When was the last time you had a nip attack??
