Nip time never gets old

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First off I wanna say how sorry I am that I missed my last Monday’s blog post. Mom L and I were all set to get down to writing, but then I had a really bad pain in my right hind leggie and Mom L and Dad P dashed me off to our best animal emergency hospital. It always happens on a Sunday, right? Long story short, it seems I have a soft tissue injury likely gotten when I was trying to get away from that little foster introoder Pipsqueak. He is a five month old black kitten who is always tryin’ to sniff my tail or my butt. Sheeesh! I got some pain meds and that helped lots, but then I had to make another last minute trip to my regular vet two days later. I have a urinary tract infection, perhaps caused by stress?

I am lots better now, but I am still spending most of my daytime napping behind the couch. I am very cautious around the foster Pip. He is such a gentle kitten, not aggressive at all. I just don’t want another kitten to get used to; Katie was enough. Hopefully he will find his true forever home soon!

Now on to my happy nip post! Even an old gal like me, at 14 years, can still enjoy some sniffin’ and pawin’ at nip, right? Mom L loaded up the scratcher on our ball chasin’ toy and sat back to see who would try the nip out first. Guess who??? ME!!!

Mom L wasn’t fast enough to catch me rubbing my face in the nip, all she got were my “what’cha lookin’ at” looks!! MOL

You interrupted me!!

And she got another one trying to capture me enjoying myself!

Come on Mom L; cut out that photo stuff!

We sure did get some great video of Katie havin’ a total Nip Out! She wasn’t gonna share that nip with anyone, not even her new buddy foster kitten Pipsqueak.

Katie was too busy to even notice Mom L and her camera.

She was happy to touch noses with foster Pipsqueak but she wasn’t movin’ over to let him onto that scratcher.

When Katie stopped, she just kind’a stared off into space for a bit! Silly Katie.

Whoa!! Why is the room spinning??

When was the last time you had a nip attack??

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.

My many faces and moods

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Mom L suggested that my readers might enjoy viewing a series of close up  photos she took of me recently; as well as a couple of short videos of me playing with one of my iPad games. I may be about 14 years old, but this kitty is still stylin’!!

Actually Mom L was trying to capture the true color of my green eyes in natural light. She swears I have turquoise in my eyes!! Silly Mom L!

What do you think?

Just so’s you all know I still have my playful spirit, check out my moves with this fishie.

Hope you found pleasure in these troubling times taking a look at my many faces.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
