The Kid Sage Has a Sweet Tooth

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

What can I say? It’s true. TKS must have taken on some of Dad P’s genes or somethin’ because she has developed his love for all things shaped and tasting like vanilla ice cream. Yup, this is the real deal.

Every night Dad P always has a little small teensy bowl of vanilla ice cream. Sometimes with some fruit or whatnot on it. TKS knows the moment he has prepared their his bowl ‘cuz she follows him out of the kitchen just waiting for him to get comfy in their his recliner and get settled for their nightly routine.

But one night Dad P forgot to turn off his computer so he left the ice cream on a table by his recliner for a moment. Now I want you to know this was a really, really tough situation for TKS.

Look at that poor lonely ice cream. No one to care for it.

I was watching this whole thought process drift through TKS’ mind. So was Mom L. We were sitting on our couch on the other side of that little table. This was one of TKS’ finest moments.

hmmm…Dad P wouldn’t want it to melt. And who knows how long he might be gone.

This is where TKS really came through. Or maybe, just maybe, this is where Mom L’s stare “got” through to TKS??

What? Why no! I certainly was not thinking of taking a few licks before Dad P gets back. How could you ever think such a thing of me?

About that time Dad P returned and all was well. He gets a dab of vanilla ice cream on his finger and allows TKS to lick it off. Then he wipes said finger, and gets another dab for TKS to lick. They do this for about three or four dabs and that’s all TKS wants. Nice to see them sharing their sweet toofies!

Do you have any pre-bedtime routines with your humans? Tell me about them in comments.

Gotta Luv UPS!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

“Savvy!!! Come quick!!! You won’t believe what Ms. UPS left at our front door!! Hurry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

For Me??!!! All for ME???!!!

“Listen TKS, I don’t have a lot of time to come runnin’ every time you yeowl my name. You know Mom L orders lots of stuff and it always shows up in some kinda’ box. So why in Ceiling Cat’s sake do you think this one is for us…got that TKS…I said “us”. Don’t get your tail all tied up in a knot thinkin’ this box belongs to you. And just why do you think it is for “us”?

“Savvy, can’t you tell by the smells coming from the box that this is cat stuff, not peep stuff?”

Savvy pads over to the box for a sniff, with TKS right on her tail and almost bumping into Savvy’s butt.

TKS may be right, this smells too good to be peep stuff

“Hisssss! How many times do I have to tell you, stop bumping into my butt! Sheeeesh! *sniff, sniff* Hmmm…this may have some stuff in it that I could take a liking to. Wonder if Mom L will open it up for us to get a better sniff?”

I sure hope Mom L opens this bad boy box up soon

Savvy trots off to find Mom L who is more than happy to open one flap for the girls to get a better sniff.

TKS is first to get a whiff. “Holy mouses!!!! Savvy this stuff smells like something to just die for!!

I could eat the whole box!!

“Savvy, where did you go? Don’t you wanna get a better whiff of the goodies in this box?” TKS looks around to see where Savvy has gone off to.

Wonder where Savvy disappeared to?

“Uh, hmmm…I bet I can get in and out of this box before Savvy gets back. Should I try?”

Do I dare get into the box before Savvy gets back?

Mom L enters the living room just in time to keep TKS from going too far. “Here, let me get the swag bag out for you two to check out what’s in it this year. Come on Savannah, what do you think?”

Not bad, not bad at all.

“Maybe I need to check out a couple of things in here Mom L, ya know, just to make sure they are “TKS Safe”.

All this needs my seal of approval before TKS messes with it

“No problem Savannah. Let me unpack some things you might like. You haven’t had one of the rainbox Yeowzah nip toys, so why not give this one a try?”

Wow! this nip is a great vintage year!

“Now this is what I call a heavenly rainbow indeed! Yes siree I surely do. Let me see how this sweet nip tastes.”

Chomp! Crunch!

“Oh my! What a great year for the nip this is. Why it must be from Zealandia times! They didn’t get all that nip harvested after all!! Mouses, my pal Nissy would have luvluvluv’d this nip rainbow for sure.”

Slurp, smack

” I need to spend some more time with my our rainbow nip toy. I bet’cha we are gonna be best buddies.”

I like you so much I could just give you a smoochie

“The shape is so innovative. Why I can use this as a pillow!”

I could fall asleep right now

“I’m sorry my sweet nip rainbow, but I am gonna have to let TKS have a go with you. Don’t worry, I won’t let her have her way with you for too long.” Savvy staggers off to find TKS to let her know she can have a moment with nip rainbow.

Finally!! Savvy left and it’s my turn.

“Great, Savvy is leaving. Wonder why she is sort’a swaying from side to side? And her art-right-us doesn’t seem to be bothering her right now? What’s up with that? Oh well, my turn with the nip rainbow.”

Come to me you sweet thing and let’s have some alone time

“Mouses!! I can’t believe it but Savvy didn’t even get the nip rainbow wet! Not even damp!!”

SWEET!! A new, dry, only slightly used nip rainbow all for me!!

As you can see, it doesn’t take much to get TKS going. Hope you enjoyed watching me and TKS enjoy our BlogPaws swag bag. Mom L was signed up to go but then couldn’t at the last minute. So we asked Miss Sue from The Island Cats if she would kindly pick up our swag and ship it to us and she did! Thank you Miss Sue!!!

Learning to Share My Space

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I haven’t shared much about my progress lately so I thought I’d give you a peek into my latest growth in confidence. As you all know, I have struggled in trying to learn how to “be” with The Kid Sage in my castle. But she has been her for about four years now and while I still struggle learning to know what “play” is, I have become more open to sharing my space.

Now it is supposed to be “Winter” here in Nor Cal but heck, it has been feeling like Spring since February showed up. But before February made its appearance, we had some nice cool weather and Mom L took out an old than dirt blankie she has had since her high school days! You KNOW that is old!

Well it seems that both TKS and I luvluvluv sleeping on this blankie. It is really thin, probably some acrylic thing not real wool, but holy mouses do we both think it is toasty warm and soft. So Mom L has been keeping this blankie over her at night so’s I can snuggle on it nice and close to her. Trouble is TKS also likes it so she sucks up to the other side of Mom L. For some reason Mom L doesn’t always appreciate bein’ the middle of a “kitty cat toasted sandwich”! She starts throwin’ off the covers and TKS and I go flying!

So Mom L makes sure we can use that yummy blankie during the day time for out naps if we want. I, as first cat, get dibs on it first or course. But surprisingly, I am allowing TKS to join me—and she is getting way closer than I have ever let her get.

Yeah, I know we both look pretty grumpy here, but we really did relax and nap together for a couple of hours once that smart phone left the room. There are only about ten inches between us. Heck, out tails could have been touching we were so close.

I have even been known to get up on the blankie even if TKS is there first. That’s something I never have done before.

We have both found that the Winter sun puddle on the day bed in Dad P’s office is best enjoyed in the morning. I usually retire to that spot after I finish my brekkies, but TKS has discovered it and on this day she beat me to it!

You can tell it was cooler than now by the next photos of me. I am lying on my special hand knitted pink blankie which is on top of my fave blue afghan. Mom L caught me early one evening as I was preparing to have my TV watchin’ nap.

Thanks for coming by to visit. I will have a post for next Monday about the cat colony Mom L and I have taken on as one of my Paw It Forward projects.
