Do you live an exciting life???

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I sure do hope some of you can share your exciting lives with me. Around here, not much happens that gets my senior adrenaline pumping! Well at least, nothing happens to the youngsters that gets me all excited.

Why all TKS can come up with to do anything “exciting” is this.

It’s a box!! Whee!!

Yep, TKS can’t ever ignore any empty box. She is convinced all are intended for her sole use and pleasure. Doesn’t take much to “chime her bells”—na’mean??

Now this is big enough to stretch out in. YAY!!

As for the new kidster, Ms Kit Katie aka KK—her idea of “exciting adventure” is this.

Ahhh—window whiffies—makes me so relaxed

Next thing ya’ know she is doin’ this!

Huh?…gonna give my eyes some rest now

Seriously?! This is what my youngsters call “exciting living”??!! Come on my pals, surely you must be doing more than these two to get your adrenaline pumping and to keep your humans on their tippy toes worrying about you??? Share!! Tell me what you do??

As for me—I like to walk on the ‘wild side” now and then. Keeps Mom L thoroughly charged and give HER adrenaline a huge leap!

I just luvluvluv the quilt from this angle

Her silent shrieks (she is terrified if she yells at me I will fall) are the best ever!

Guess I will head over to the real stairs down

Let me know how exciting your life is.

Our Fosters and Colony Update

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I decided as I have introduced you to our foster kittens as well as the twenty-seven member cat colony Mom L and Dad P help feed and care for, that it is time for a little update on both.

But first let me just tell you an embarrassing secret I have. Shhhhhh—don’t tell your humans—especially if they are active in cat rescue like Mom L, but—I so want these foster kittens to be GONE!!

THERE!!! I said it!!! I am starting to take out my stress and frustration over not being allowed in Mom L’s office on The Kid Sage. So not her fault. But she is the only cat I can ready and give a smacky paw to when I am frustrated.

Sorry TKS that I whapped you kind’a hard this morning

Mom L had to break me off of TKS so’s she could find cover. I really am starting to have a tough time having these kids here much longer. That said, I know they need help and we are all still doing our best to give them that help.

Here is a nice photo of several of the twenty seven community cats who call River View Park home. This colony increased tons when our California housing market crashed between 2008-2012. Humans drove by the park and dumped their cats when they didn’t want to take them to a new home once the humans had to give their homes back to the big banks. I know that lots of folks like to tell the tail tale that our “economy” is all recovered—but I want them to come explain that to all these cats that were abandoned by humans during that time.

Chow time!!

See that orange dude in front? That’s Garfield who is at least twelve to fourteen years old. He has lived in this colony since before 2006. He is losing weight and gets extra wet food every day. Mom L took him to Community Concern 4 Cats Clinic a couple of months ago and found his blood work was OK but his toofies are really bad. We are hoping to raise $400 USD to  cover his upcoming dental cleaning.

Meet Opal. Timid, scared of most of the cats in the colony

Opal is a diluted tortie who is so afraid for upsetting any other cat that she only comes to eat as the others move away. As you can see, her winter coat is already on and every so stylish!!

As for our foster kittens, let me give you a bit of information about Katie, who is about ten months old. She is pretty healthy, but we just learned she has juvenile gingivitis which can lead to stomatitis which would mean she might lose all her teeth in the next year or two. She also has a limp that appears to be a birth defect or some injury that occurred at the cat hoarder home where Mom L found her at about five months old. Remember, Katie had been lactating and had kittens by that age. None survived.

You can see her limp in this short video.

Katie is such a sweet love bug. Timid and needs time to trust but once she does, she just has the best purr motor ever!!

And guess what?? Spitty and his human gifted our foster kittens with a toy!! Spitty told his human to just pass this toy along to younger kitties and boy are Katie and Lilly happy his human did!

Whapping three layers of balls!!

Katie and Lilly will start going to an adoption event this coming weekend, please send your best more pawerful POTP to them that they find their forever home together. They have become very bonded.

Here is Lilly helping Mom L get this blog post done.

Are we done now? Can I eat?

Hope you enjoyed my update news.

Where did that cat come from?

And the eyes have it

Then Mom L hit the “ON” button and VOILA!! Cat revealed and Mom L gave a shriek!!!

*snicker, snicker*

You have to admit, TKS did somemighty fine hidin’ out there, didn’t she?
