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.

When stressed, get a massage

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I bet’cha all of you have been having the same “shelter in place” stressful week we have had. Mom L called my pet sitter Miss Kandi to come over and help relieve some of my stress I was collecting from Mom L and Dad P. Oh my, what a great session we had.

First I arrange myself on my massage table; my stairs. I anchor my front with on paw on top of the step and the other on the bottom of the step and my hind paws anchor my butt.

Ok, you can start, deep tissue work today, OK?

Miss Kandi has the longest nails and they sink into my furs and rub and scritch all along my spine—heaven!!

Ahhhh….that’s just the spot between my shoulders

She just has a magical way of manipulating all my vertebrae from my neck to my tail.

Oh my, yes! The cervical area has been giving me some problems. Excellent!!

The first part was just fabulous and needed to take a bit of a break to collect my Zen space.

Whew—just what I needed

Next she moved onto my cranial massage portion.

Whoa!! I knew my brow area was feeling tense

Then to the base of my skull.

ohhhh—could you just leave your nails sunk into that muscle a moment more please?

Lastly, Miss Kandi always addresses my lower lumbar area, right around my taileo.

Ummmm—here it comes—I can’t help myself

She always get me to achieve total EB aka “Elevator Butt”.

Sweet!!!

After Miss Kandi was done, all I could do was sit on the stairs and try to collect my thoughts and emotions. But for sure, my stress level was way down.

I hope all of my readers and blog pals and their families can find a stress release like I did with Miss Kandi. These are troubling times and I know we all need to lean on each other for comfort and care.
