HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Super happy to see you guys show up to check in on all the girls in my castle. Yup, that’s right, this is Savannah’s Castle! So, Sage aka The Kid Sage aka TKS and Katie aka Kit Katie aka KK are both doing just great. 

Only little blip on the future for KK is that she must have another dental in February 2021 to remove most of the toofies on the right side of her mouth. That demon “gingivitis/stomatitis” continues to haunt my little tiny sisfur. Otherwise, she is running around at night aka 3 AM chasing who knows what demons all around the wood floors—yes Mom L wakes up! Last night KK figured out how to turn on our television in our shared master bedroom. Of course she did this at about 2 AM!! YUP!! Humans not happy!!

As for TKS, she is her usual hang out, follow the humans wherever they go and always, always be present and aware when they are anywhere near anything that looks like FOOD! TKS is about eight years old now and thankfully has shown zero signs of any health issues. Well—if we don’t count her obsession with food! *wink, wink*.

Now for me. Yes I do have early onset, stage one of CKD. BUT—I am now eating several kinds of awesome low phosphorus with a balance of protein wet foods. And they are pate foods but with lots of fluids! I think I may have to start watching my waistline! I still play when I want to and always try to get my snuggles with Mom L at night on the couch and if the mood strikes me.

Hope you enjoyed our little progress report.

Savannah’s Family Photos

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I asked Mom L to round up some recent photos of me, TKS and KK so’s I can share with all of you what a great furamily we are!

Life is great every morning!

I am gonna start with TKS. She is our family’s bond between me and KK and she is the equal opportunity kitty in our furramily. TKS will sit in any lap available. KK is tending to be more bonded with Dad P right now which causes Mom L a bit of tears, but we are sure KK is finally warming up to Mom L. And of course I have always been and will always be a Momma’s kitty. Of course I adore my Dad P cuz he feeds me and submits to my every demand. And I do allow him to brush me and pet me etc. But—Mom L is my purrsonal person and I know I am her pursonal kitty.

Moving on with more of TKS showing off her bootiful black panfur furrs.

Of course we still have the ongoing effort from KK to bond with me. What can I say—I am a KK magnet!

KK is hard for Mom L to photograph ‘cuz she is always moving. But, Mom L managed over the last couple of months to grab some KK special photos.

You can see that KK finally got to have her time in my tent on our master bed. I didn’t mind ‘cuz I was starting to hang out more downstairs. You ca also see that KK has become courageous enough to sit on the arm of Dad P’s chair and beg for pieces of his chik-hen dinner!! MOL!!

Most of you recall that KK has serious dental challenges ahead of her. She came to us with severe gingivitis at five months old and that has turned into stomatitis. She had a dental in February and had eleven extractions. You can see in this photo that she has problems sometimes getting her lips and mouth to coordinate because they removed her upper right canine toofie.

KK is getting the very best care from our vet, but she will likely have all her toofies extracted later this year.

And now for my photos. Mom L totally luvluvluv’s my toesies! Go figure! You can see my hind paws with my pink toe beans. And of course you all know how much I adore being on my carpeted stairs for play and to enjoy a sun puddle.

The last photos of me are part of Mom L’s ongoing effort to capture my eyes in natural light. For some reason, Mom L seems to find my face very precious and she knows I find her face precious to me as well. We are bonded forever.

Danger! Danger! Shopping bag warning from TKS!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

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!!
