Danger! Danger! Shopping bag warning from TKS!!


Aiieeee!!! Danger!! Danger!!! Who knew??  Certainly not Mom L or Dad P!!

We all know in my castle that all paper bags MUST have the paper handles cut so that NO KITTY can get hung up in those handles. I know you all know this, but just stick with me for the learning we all got just yesterday from none other than, you got it!!—the infamous TKS the extraordinaire “let it all hang out” cat!

Wow!! This is pretty cool!

So Dad P left about four grocery shopping, reusable bags, at the foot of our stairs. All folded neatly, no handles showing. And then Mom L came out of the kitchen about thirty minutes later to TKS IN A BAG!!

Whoa! I got this thing to stand up! Cool!!!

Yes, you got it. That bag was lying flat, no handles exposed. But the ever exploring TKS found a way to not only get that bag out of a pile of bags, but she also was able to paw it into standing upright!! Seriously!!

Amazing this thing is standing right up! Sweet!!

Mom L was busy in the kitchen and Dad P was in the garage. Then Mom L came around from the kitchen into the entry way and there was TKS!! IN THE BAG!!! (no pun intended)

Ok! You caught me!!

Mom L was horrified at the thought of what might have happened had TKS been frightened by her or Dad P or any kitty in my castle scaring TKS so that she might jump from that bag THROUGH a handle!!!

Ok!! Stop making this more than what it is—I just like this bag!!

And there you have it. TKS has perspective on what she was trying to do, which was have a bit of fun. However, Mom L and Dad P won’t ever leave another shopping bag with handles anywhere near where this kitty can get a paw on it.

And before anyone says this is comments—yes! My pawrents ALWAYS cut the bag handles. This grocery shopping bag was lying flat in a pile of four. But TKS managed to get it out, upright and take up residence.

Hope you are all having a marvelous Monday!! Got any shopping bag stories to share?? Leave a comment and a photo is even better!!


Sneaking up on morning treats


The Kid Sage has been at it again. She sneaks up on the baggies Mom L keeps our morning treats in every chance she gets. One morning Mom L fell back asleep, leaving those treat baggies out. When Dad P came in to get her up he found the plastic baggie with TKS’ treats on the floor on his side of the bed, torn open, and a tell tale trail of treats leading back to Mom L’s side of the bed!!

Well this time Mom L wasn’t asleep!

Dum-tee-dum-dum…just came over to your nightstand to see the boats Mom L

Oh yeah! Nice try TKS.

Why look what we have here!!

As if you didn’t know those treat baggies were gonna be there! HAH!!! And you got BUSSSSSSTED!!!

WHAT??? ME?? Trying to SNEAK!! Look at my innocent face.

Innocent face my tail!!

Darn! I thought she was really watching the news. Bummer!

I tell you, TKS is a true trickster when it comes to treats and chik-hen.

Have you ever made a sneak attack on your treats?


My Secret Santa Paws 2019


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?
