Our Secret Santa Paws Visited!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

For my newer readers, let me tell you about the Cat Blogosphere’s Secret Santa Paws gift exchange. Our pawsome blog pals at Sweet Purrfections beg their Mom Paula to coordinate this totally fun event for any of our cat blogging pals that want to pawticipate. We even have international cat bloggers who join in the fun. So we all submit our names and number of cats in our homes and what colors we like, what type of treats and toys and also what we can’t have because of diet restrictions and so on. Then Mom Paula matches us up!

We were Secret Paws for Lola The Rescue Cat (and her sisfur Lexy) in New York. Hopefully they received their package and are gonna have a blast with all the stuff we packed in there. Oh yes, and we always put a little somethin’ in there for the humans, just ‘cuz they serve our meals.

So let’s get going. First up is how we wrapped up and packaged our prezzies for the kitties we were shopping for. As you can imagine, all our gifts had to be sniffed and tasted first, right??!!

Wow! Our shopping list was purrty good this year.

And then comes the “testing” part.

Then Mom L wraps it all up, and Dad P dashes like a reindeer to the post office in hope that Santa Paws will get our prezzie package there on time! Whew!

And now it’s Christmas Day and finally Mom L lets us have at our own Secret Paws package. What an incredible package we received! So beautifully wrapped with special purrsonal gift tags and such lovely hand printing on every prezzie. Gosh, we hated to open those. BUT—we did!!

Of course Mom L made us enjoy the wrapping and what not, but that’s ok, ‘cuz then we got to find out what was inside. First to paw forward was, of course, TKS aka The Kid Sage! She about stuffed her whole body into that box!! MOL!!!

Next up was KK aka Kit Katie aka Katie! She also tried to do a nose dive.

And check out how cool Mom L’s prezzies are.

Now on to check out what was in those beautifully wrapped and tagged prezzies. Katie loved the feather wand toy and all those balls!! She is such a soccer player!

I preferred to be more adult about all this hoopla and I carefully strolled around the debris that TKS and Katie left and guess what I found??

Sniff, sniff…yup…this is the mother lode of silver vine!

Silvervine!!! And then I discovered the incredible scents from all the wrapping paper. Those youngster sisfurs had no idea what they were missing in the trash bag Mom L and Dad P were so carefully guarding. 

 I left the rest of the mauling of the prezzies to KK and TKS. I went off and had a little nap after sniffing all that silver vine and other smells.

Katie is losing patience with TKS mauling the smelly nip purple toy. KK is too polite to wait her turn

And Katie, sweet Katie, was caught looking on at all the joyful things someone she never met sent to her, me and TKS just to help us have a most fun filled Christmas. I am sure KK is thinking ‘I wish all the other abandoned cats out in the cold had this bounty”. Sigh…

This is so nice…but there are so many who need this and so much more

Hope you enjoyed sharing our Secret Santa Paws experience in 2020. We are filled with an abundance of gratitude to have our home and do everything we can to help Mom L and Dad P and all our Project Delta View Cats volunteers bring even a bit of this abundance to all those abandoned community cats we serve in our city of Pittsburg, CA.

Here’s to a stellar New Year for every cat forced to live a life of lost love on the streets. Always Support Your Local Street Cats purrlease.

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??

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
