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.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH

Are you a dare devil?

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well if you aren’t a dare devil, then The Kid Sage has you covered with her escapades. I’ll let her tell you this tail tale in her own words ‘cuz thank Ceiling Cat I wasn’t there to experience Mom L’s shrieks!! MOL!!!

“Ahem…coff, coff…Hi guys! TKS here. Thanks for joining our bloggy Savannah’s bloggy today. She asked me to show off illustrate my craziness that caused Mom L to babble for several minutes with incoherent sounds.

So it started like any other night. I was lounging in Alfie’s bed on the bench that sits on our staircase landing. This is the bed Alfie’s Mom Stella made for him right before he started his journey to The Bridge. We are honored that his Mom Miss Stella let our Mom L have it.

Moving on…I decided that I had never explored the staircase railing and today seemed like a good time.

Hmmm…I think this is gonna be fun!

Like any other tight rope walker, I considered my surroundings, the degree of danger aka “risk to life and limb”, and decided to go forward. That brought out Mom L’s first gasp.

Whoa! This is pretty cool! All four paws fit on this little walkway

Now Mom L is calling for Dad P and also grabbing for her phone camera. I figured that meant I was good to go with my new exploration.

I wonder if I can just slip down this to the bottom??

Yeah, well my exploration didn’t bring out the best in Mom L, what can I say.

Okay, Okay…I’m down and safe. Let me rest my tail navigator

So I gave up and hopped down onto the landing. I had to give my tail a little rest after it’s help in keeping me balanced on that narrow rail.

Let us know in comments what makes your humans emit alien screeches when you try out a new activity.”
