My Secret Santa Paws 2019

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First, I promise this blog post will still get your Friday smiles going!! Every year for the past seven years we have pawticipated in Secret Santa Paws, hosted and organized by the incredible kitties and human at Sweet Purrfections. Without Truffle, Brulee and Miss Paula, this wonderful event would not happen at all!!

The deal is that I get selected to be Secret Paws for cat/cats who blog and then in turn some kitties are selected to be MY Secret Paws. It’s a wonderful gift exchange between cats who love to write blogs!

Anywho, moving on. So this year I got to be Secret Santa Paws for wonderful buddies The Island Cats, Ernie and Zoey and their human, The Lady With The Yellow Hair Miss Sue.

I gave Mom L a shopping list and let her use my secret Savannah’s Paw Tracks credit card. And oh my cat did Mom L ever do a great job shopping! So great that TKS, KK and I all wanted to be sure to send off our gifts with some of our very own kitty spit!

That’s us helping Mom L wrap the prezzies we sent to The Island Cats. You can probably tell we really like the selections Mom L made!

Fast forward to Christmas morning when we finally got to open our box from our own Secret Santa Paws, The Celestial Kitties, Leo, Glitter and Cashmere!!

I stayed in bed late on Christmas morning so KK and TKS did the honors for all of us. And TKS was first to get right into that box to start getting those wrapped packages out where she could play with them.

And did those three ever send the bestest ever prezzies to us!! As some of you know, Miss Andrea is known for her skill with those knitting needles and she used them to make a special catnip mousie for EACH of us. You can see that Katie totally loved hers!!

Of course TKS also went nip crazy over several of the prezzies.

You can see that our Secret Santa Paws knew just what we liked. And one of the bestest ever was the paper bag made from catnip paper!

And if you think TKS and KK were nipped out after opening their Secret Santa Paws, you haven’t seen them opening their Christmas stockings!! Remember this is Katie’s first ever Christmas with a loving family!

Of course TKS got to the stocking before anyone else. First there were three on the fireplace mantel.

And then only two!

TKS also had another nip hangover after going through her stocking.

All in all, we kitties had a pawsome Christmas!! Thanks again to Celestial Kitties for their generous prezzies. We are still enjoying each and every one!

So how was your holiday?

Happy Monday

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Just a short post today ‘cuz Mom L and Dad P had a late night last night celebrating Mom L’s birthday!! And to day Dad P is taking her to her alma mater’s bowl football game (USA style): CAL (University of California, Berkeley Mom L’s class of ’68) vs Iowa State Univ.

Even though they are in a rush, we girls still got our morning treats in bed with Mom L. Notice how close KK is to me!!

This morning’s treat event in Mom L’s bed!

Just to keep you interested in my coming post about our Secret Santa Paw’s package preparation and opening the one we received, I’m giving you a look at each of us with our little Christmas tree.

I love my slicker brush on my cheeks!

TKS likes to sit under it.

I can watch everyone from her…purrfect

And KK likes to watch the tree from the top of my steps to help me get on the couch.

Awesome view from here

That’s us for now. See you this Thankful Thursday for our Secret Santa Paws post.

Proper use of a holiday box lid

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

For the first time ever I am going to turn over my blog post to the youngster I refer to as “KK” aka “Kit Katie” aka “Katie”. Mom L didn’t get the photos purrfect ‘cuz she was so astonished to see what KK was doing with the box lid to some of Mom L’s treasures from her childhood. Needless to say, Mom L was way too amused watching KK and her ability to focus her iPhone camera was challenged! MOL!!

Take it away Katie!

” Oh gosh, Princess Savannah, thank you oodles and lots for allowing little me to tell about my discovery of how to use a holiday box lid.”

ooomph! I certainly think my little butt must fit

“Needless to say, I was just a tad challenged on my first couple of tries in using this very special box lid that Mom L so lovingly provided to me.”

Hmmm…maybe if I try doing this head first?

“Well that didn’t work at all!”

Gosh, this still doesn’t feel quite comfy yet

“I really wanted to make sure my whole butt fit nicely inside this darling box lid.”

Maybe if I shift a bit to the left?

” Sadly, shifting left didn’t provide any more space for my butt and tail.”

This is so frustrating! Let me try something else

” It took me a while to figure out just how to make my butt and tail fit into this box lid, but as we all know, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again”!

“Voila!! And there you have me!! My butt and tail nicely tucked into the little box lid!”

PAW PATS, KATIE!!

PeeEss…koff, koff, ahem,…Savvy here…Mom L couldn’t get the photo but KK’s tail never did fit in the box lid *giggles*
