Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Gosh, where to start???!! So much going on around here. Let me start with an updates from the past.

Do you remember our foster kittens from 2017? We had three siblings, Rocky, Chloe and Jessie. Well I have an update on Rocky, now Nick, and Chloe, now Nora. We know Jessie is fine but just do not have a recent update.

Here they are, Nick and Nora, together and snuggling just like when they left my castle in November, 2017.

Gotta luvluvluv the Happy Tails Endings! And here is another one for you. Remember one of the friendly adults cats Mom L pulled from our park colony? Her name from the feeders was “Whitey” because she has four white paws, BUT one paw had a little black tootsie. You can see her searching for her forever home in my link to a long ago Friday Memes.

Recognize her now?? The photos below are from her new forever Mom. She is now Whitney, and totally loving being an indoor cherished kitty.

Now how is that for Happy Tails Endings all around??

More news on my home front. My castle is being overtaken by some uppity brown tabby Kit Katie!! Just look at her! How much more intrusive on my castle can she be??

Wow, Savvy sure does have a nice tent setup

Even TKS is amazed at how much this KK is taking over.

I’m outta here heading for parts unknown in my whiz bang spaceship

She has even become part of our morning routing with Mom L and Dad P. We all hang out on our bed while they watch the morning news, drink their coffee, read the paper etc. And now, KK takes over a WHOLE corner of the bed for herself!! Cheeky kid!!

Oh I luvluvluv this corner!! What? Oh, was this yours Princess Savannah?

Things are gonna have to come to a point soon. This KK kitty is just too intrusive. Why this morning, while I was quietly nibbling on my brekkies in our bedroom ( I like eating with Mom L and Dad P)—KK actually snuck in behind me and sniffed and snuffled my TAILEO while I was nibbling away!!! And no, there is no photo proof of this happening, but trust me, it DID!!

And there is even MORE! I have this very special sun puddle that occurs every Spring. It is on Mom L’s side of our bed, and I can lay on the floor rug in front of the balcony slider and have a lovely morning sun bath. WELL!!!

Sheesh!! Do I have a brown tabby shadow???

There KK is, right on my “six”! A Princess has no privacy nor privilege where this KK is concerned.

Last but not least in this Monday Meowsie News post, is my latest Paw It Forward project. Mom L was contacted by a neighbor across our water channel who has been caring for a sweet abandoned adult lady cat. The neighbor is so very allergic to cats. Even though she has tried desperately to be able to give this abandoned cat a home, she simply cannot do this any longer.

My name is Miss Kitty and I am searching for my forever home. Can you help me?

We are working our local rescue contacts and will keep you updated on Miss Kitty’s search for her forever home. And yes, those people loaded up two of the cats they liked best, and drove away leaving more than Miss Kitty to fend for themselves. Working to humanely care for and rescue abandoned community cats ROCKS!!!

Friday Memes From the Young’uns

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well I just had to let the two young’uns in my castle take over the memes today. They really are something to watch. Why I believe Kit Katie may have TKS buffaloed. I put their interaction today into a slideshow with captions for your Friday smiles!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So do you guys think Kit Katie has TKS on her tippy toes? Your reactions in comments please.

And of course our Kit Katie castle guest had to have one of her very own. In fact, this meme cost Mom L to lose at least one or more of her own Kitty Nine Lives.

Yup, all of us girls have now given Mom L her very own special heart attack, gasp of breath experience by walking on the wild side of the banister.

So what do you think TKS was watching that made her rivet her eyes on it? Come on , give me your best guess in comments and I promise Mom L will reveal what TKS was watching like it was a horror show!!!

PeeEss…please be sure to grab Kit Katie’s badge and help us find her the special forever castle she so deserves. She goes in for an X-ray of her front right leg to learn why she has a limp. Mom L and Dad P believe that one front leg may be shorter than the other. No matter, nothing holds Kit Katie back!!

 

SNIP, SNAP, Snippity Snappity

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well Mom L and Dad P spent another day at the quarterly SNIP clinic. I have posted so many times about this totally awesome community cat spay/neuter clinic that I fear my loyal readers are tiring of it. BUT—we do not tire of this 4 times a year PAW IT FORWARD opportunity.

Ummm…is this gonna hurt??

I want to make this post about the “special cats” we experience when Mom L and Dad P volunteer. First, and thankfully I have not photos, one kitty, a very “feral” kitty, was found to have a possible broken femur and tail. She had her tail amputated, and she was to be returned to her caretaker/feeder with the broken leg hoping for some recovery. The important learning is that the caretaker asked that she not be euthanized. The caretaker wanted this kitty back and is willing to keep her in “recovery” inside her home until the kitty can manage on her own outside where the kitty knows best.

The injuries were likely the result of being hit by a car. So what do you think my readers? Good decision? Questionable decision?

It is so difficult for event the volunteer veterinarians to make these judgement calls.

And then there are the incredible, clearly purebred cats that come through Mom L’s “admission table”. Thankfully, the humans who brought this purebred Ocicat in were more than willing to care for him after his neuter.

The last photo simply shows this incredible kitty after being sedated. Mom L followed him from admission all the way through being discharged to his rescue family. And yes, this male cat is purebred, Ocicat, who just showed up in the backyard of his rescue humans. Such is the reality of community cat rescue.

Another incredible cat group represented today were Lynx Point Siamese.

We had youngsters and adults. Amazing community cats, abandoned either as adults, not spayed/neutered or even as juveniles, not spayed/neutered. The end result is the same. The cats are left to reproduce, not cared for and well—just abandoned. These cats are not “feral”. They are afraid, don’t trust humans, but if they do not “run”…then likely they are willing to try just one more time to trust humans. Meaning, they are not “feral”.

Feral: Feral cats are the result of a domestic cat being abandoned or lost and left to fend for itself. The offspring of the domestic (now considered feralcat are usually never handled by people and become terrified. Many times, when approached by people, they will hiss out of fright.

So many of the cats coming through our SNIP clinic are not “feral”. They are simply terrified after having been abandoned by humans. And because all community cat rescues do not have sufficient numbers of “fosters” for these adult abandoned cats, we can only “return them to where they are being fed”.

Please, do not abandon a cat. They are not able to live “off the land”. Please do not “shoo away a community cat looking for some love and a meal”. Please, call a local community cat rescue and ask for help. Every cat deserves love, kindness and a safe, warm place to live out its life with good food and understanding that the kitty did not make a decision to live without human caring.

Thanks lots for reading my post,

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
