I’m HOME!!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Hear yee, hear yee!! The Princess did not move to Canada, she returned to her much loved home in Pittsburg, California!

Hey guys!! Thanks a ton for appreciating TKS and KK’s attempts at holding the “blog” in my absence and producing the last Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. IMHO—”they did good”!

So for anyone who follows my blog, and doesn’t know, I had the i 131/aka Radiocat hyperthyroidism treatment on January 21. I was in hospital for three nights. My first ever and last ever away stay from my castle.

So here’s my account of my rescue from the hospital.

First, I was so scared and nervous. But then I met my Registered Veterinarian Tech, Ms Erin, and I started to relax. Ms Erin was so kind and caring and compassionate. My treatment was at Animal Specialty Hospital in Oakland, CA.

So Mom L was totally in love with the art they use in their kitty area for intake and discharge. She had leaky eyes when Ms Erin brought me to her.

And then there was the one hour drive home. Mom L did the same thing she did when she and Dad P took me to hospital. She rode in the backseat so’s she could open my carrier and pet me to comfort me.

She even let me get my head and shoulders out to make sure that Dad P was driving safely and headed in the right direction—HOME!!

And then the moment arrived. I was HOME!!

Yeah, yeah, I know Mom L got me all blurry, but you get the idea, right? I was HOME!!

Well then I had to do an entire survey of my castle to make sure no changes had been made in my absence, and no “other” kitty had tried to use any of my stuff!

I started talking to Mom L and Dad P as soon as I left my carrier. I wanted them to know what I thought about this whole ordeal. I let them know that my RVT Ms Erin was super duper awesome. And that I know I am one fortunate kitty to be able to cure my hyperthyroidism. Not every kitty gets to have this. But, I turned out to be allergic to the less costly treatment, even using the transderamal gel on my ears. I started to vomit, then my ears started to itch and I got an infection in one ear. That’s why we all decided that I had to get the Radiocat treatment.

Moving forward…

My inspection of my castle was of course vocal. I meowed all my observations of any changes to Mom L and Dad P.

I checked out the down stairs and then went upstairs. Of course all the while I was being followed by my castle staff

They wanted to make sure I was pleased with how they took care of the castle in my absence. The toughest part was learning that the staff had taken advantage of using my preferred nip toy, the rainbow. A brand new one I got for Christmas in my stocking.

Phew!! Some other cat has spit on my fave Yeow nip rainbow!!

But then I found my holiday tree and it was scent and spit free!!

Ahhh…my spit is still on this one

I ended my inspection once I was assured that my favorite pink beddie was secure and ready for my long nap.

Thank you all for helping me escape. I am now taking a long needed nap

I am so happy that Dad P still serves me my meals anywhere I wanna eat.

Hey Dad P!! I am waiting!!

As some of you know I have lost about two pounds aka 900 grams.  I really need to get that weight back. I am trying, but I am also a very picky eater.

This is my current figure, I am very thin

Thankfully I have Mom L and Dad P to make sure I get whatever I need to keep me gaining weight. The last few days before my treatment, I was really grouchy and took that out on Katie and Sage.

Since my treatment, I am starting to allow closer relations with them.

I know you are butt bumping me Katie, but I want my treat more than giving you a paw whap! MOL

Life is good. Please send my your POTP to help me regain some weight. Thanks guys for being my pals.

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
