Learning to Share My Space

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I haven’t shared much about my progress lately so I thought I’d give you a peek into my latest growth in confidence. As you all know, I have struggled in trying to learn how to “be” with The Kid Sage in my castle. But she has been her for about four years now and while I still struggle learning to know what “play” is, I have become more open to sharing my space.

Now it is supposed to be “Winter” here in Nor Cal but heck, it has been feeling like Spring since February showed up. But before February made its appearance, we had some nice cool weather and Mom L took out an old than dirt blankie she has had since her high school days! You KNOW that is old!

Well it seems that both TKS and I luvluvluv sleeping on this blankie. It is really thin, probably some acrylic thing not real wool, but holy mouses do we both think it is toasty warm and soft. So Mom L has been keeping this blankie over her at night so’s I can snuggle on it nice and close to her. Trouble is TKS also likes it so she sucks up to the other side of Mom L. For some reason Mom L doesn’t always appreciate bein’ the middle of a “kitty cat toasted sandwich”! She starts throwin’ off the covers and TKS and I go flying!

So Mom L makes sure we can use that yummy blankie during the day time for out naps if we want. I, as first cat, get dibs on it first or course. But surprisingly, I am allowing TKS to join me—and she is getting way closer than I have ever let her get.

Yeah, I know we both look pretty grumpy here, but we really did relax and nap together for a couple of hours once that smart phone left the room. There are only about ten inches between us. Heck, out tails could have been touching we were so close.

I have even been known to get up on the blankie even if TKS is there first. That’s something I never have done before.

We have both found that the Winter sun puddle on the day bed in Dad P’s office is best enjoyed in the morning. I usually retire to that spot after I finish my brekkies, but TKS has discovered it and on this day she beat me to it!

You can tell it was cooler than now by the next photos of me. I am lying on my special hand knitted pink blankie which is on top of my fave blue afghan. Mom L caught me early one evening as I was preparing to have my TV watchin’ nap.

Thanks for coming by to visit. I will have a post for next Monday about the cat colony Mom L and I have taken on as one of my Paw It Forward projects.

My Secret Santa Paws ROCK!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I know this is the first day of a whole New Year and I am just getting around to posting about our Secret Santa Paws package. But, I have a good excuse for bein’ late. You see we haven’t had any drippy water days here but Ms. Sunshine sure has been stingy with her light. Seriously, we haven’t had enough natural light for Mom L to take photos of us enjoying our prezzies.

We finally got a couple of hours yesterday so Mom L had TKS get to opening that big box from our Secret Santa Paws. We are tickled our package was sent by our pals from Lola The Rescue Cat, Lexi and Lola!! APAWS for our Secret Santa Paws because they totally rock!

Unfortunately I wasn’t willing to leave my warm snuggly Alfie bed, so I let TKS do all the inspecting and opening of the prezzies. My art-right-us has kept me from doing my usual snoopervision chores. Good ole TKS was more than ready and willing.

Ok, can I dive in now?

Of course Mom L had to get her iPhone ready so TKS had to cease and desist.

Seriously Mom L! I don’t wanna wait much longer!

Finally she got the go ahead.

Now!! Take my photo for cat’s sake so’s I can get to inspecting

Now for the real work. Nosing out the best stuff to open first!

Snuffle, sniff, sniff—ahchoo!! I found the NIP!

Mom L had to get the prezzies ready for TKS to open, but in the mean time, I think TKS got a bit distracted.

Wow!! I can’t believe Lola and Lexi let us have this paper snake toy!! Awesome!

Then TKS became even more confused in what was a prezzie and what was the stuff used to “send” the prezzies.

What a treasure. They even sent us their very best ever box!

Finally Mom L shooed TKS away so she could at least get a photo of all the nice toys Lola and Lexi sent us and Miss Dawn even sent Mom L some sweets and a cute kitty coin purse. Mom L asked me to come down and pose but I said nope, not moving. So she sorta kinda shopped me into the photo just so my readers get to see me and all our prezzies.

Check this all out. Sweet! Don’t’ya think?

Thanks tons to Lola and Lexi and Miss Dawn for being our 2017 Secret Santa Paws!

PeeEss: I sure would appreciate it if you would place the badge below on your blogs to help me help Foster Kitten Andi let her forever family know she is waiting for them to find her. I’m gonna keep her on my blog until she finds her family.

 

MEOWY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAY

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

It’s that special day in the year when Mom L decides I need to “dress up”. Seeing as how I don’t do that in reality, she has to make up some silly virtual “Savvy in holiday spirit” image. Harrummppfff I say, but here it is.

Using my bestest purrs to all my pals to wish them a bright love filled Christmas

From my castle to yours, I truly do hope all my readers, humans and fur pals, have a day filled with love, laughter and yummy noms!

The last half of this year has been filled with moving into our new permanent home and then finding several kitties that needed my help. You can see four of the kittens I have helped to get spayed, neutered and adopted. They were all born to community cat moms. The sweet girl in the far left is still with me unfortunately happily waiting to get some more socialization. After this week she will be moved to Kitty Corner, my former rescue home, where I just know she will soon fly out the door with her new family.

So, happy holiday from me, The Kid Sage, Mom L and Dad P.

COMMENT OFF! Go enjoy your special day purrlease!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
