Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

All about me!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I decided I wanted to write a bit about me and share some photos Mom L took that capture my REAL SELF pretty darn great! As some of you know, I have had irritable bowel disease for several years. Unfortunately I was struggling to care about eating and then I started to barf up my food again in the last couple of months. So I am now getting one dose a day of stuff that goes on my ear called prednisolone. One day I get my right ear jammed with this stuff and the next day I get my left ear all messed up with it. It goes without saying, I am no happy cat when this goes on.

I’m thinkin’ my “look” gets straight to the point of just how I feel after having my ears messed with. What do you think?

Dad P has taken the kindness to notice that my old bones are getting more and more arthur-it-ick. And I have decided to move to his chair in the living room for my afternoon nap. So Dad P did the nicest thing! He turned on his reading light and puts it over me and lowers it just enough so’s I get the little lamp’s warmth. Isn’t he the best Dad P ever??!!

You can see I am totally happy with my new heating light! Do you have your own heating lamp too?

Our belated GOTCHA DAY!!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Only long time furriends aren’t shy about pointing out that Mom L FORGOT to celebrate our collective GOTCHA DAY!! They officially adopted each of us on January 3, which is the day they adopted me, The Princess, firstest. TKS and KK were adopted so close to that same date that Mom L thought is would be fun to celebrate all of us on the same day. And we sure don’t mind!!! We all landed the bestest forever castle any three kitties could ever have. And I have my blog that I share with TKS and KK so’s no one gets left out.

Our long time furriend Brian, from Brian’s Home, left me a comment on my Friday Memes to let me know he was think’in of me on January 3!! And Mom L first hid her face in shame and turned ever color of bright red, and then she set to work to help me create this little celebration for all three of us girls. I love it and hope you do too.

We are posting this on Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because that is just what all of us, including Mom L and Dad P are—thankful that we have found each other and that us kitties get to constantly find ways to show Mom L and Dad P our true REAL SELF as the years pass. It doesn’t get much better than that. Right?

Purrlease remember all those abandoned community cats who are not as fortunate as us.

Our Secret Santa Paws Visited!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

For my newer readers, let me tell you about the Cat Blogosphere’s Secret Santa Paws gift exchange. Our pawsome blog pals at Sweet Purrfections beg their Mom Paula to coordinate this totally fun event for any of our cat blogging pals that want to pawticipate. We even have international cat bloggers who join in the fun. So we all submit our names and number of cats in our homes and what colors we like, what type of treats and toys and also what we can’t have because of diet restrictions and so on. Then Mom Paula matches us up!

We were Secret Paws for Lola The Rescue Cat (and her sisfur Lexy) in New York. Hopefully they received their package and are gonna have a blast with all the stuff we packed in there. Oh yes, and we always put a little somethin’ in there for the humans, just ‘cuz they serve our meals.

So let’s get going. First up is how we wrapped up and packaged our prezzies for the kitties we were shopping for. As you can imagine, all our gifts had to be sniffed and tasted first, right??!!

Wow! Our shopping list was purrty good this year.

And then comes the “testing” part.

Then Mom L wraps it all up, and Dad P dashes like a reindeer to the post office in hope that Santa Paws will get our prezzie package there on time! Whew!

And now it’s Christmas Day and finally Mom L lets us have at our own Secret Paws package. What an incredible package we received! So beautifully wrapped with special purrsonal gift tags and such lovely hand printing on every prezzie. Gosh, we hated to open those. BUT—we did!!

Of course Mom L made us enjoy the wrapping and what not, but that’s ok, ‘cuz then we got to find out what was inside. First to paw forward was, of course, TKS aka The Kid Sage! She about stuffed her whole body into that box!! MOL!!!

Next up was KK aka Kit Katie aka Katie! She also tried to do a nose dive.

And check out how cool Mom L’s prezzies are.

Now on to check out what was in those beautifully wrapped and tagged prezzies. Katie loved the feather wand toy and all those balls!! She is such a soccer player!

I preferred to be more adult about all this hoopla and I carefully strolled around the debris that TKS and Katie left and guess what I found??

Sniff, sniff…yup…this is the mother lode of silver vine!

Silvervine!!! And then I discovered the incredible scents from all the wrapping paper. Those youngster sisfurs had no idea what they were missing in the trash bag Mom L and Dad P were so carefully guarding. 

 I left the rest of the mauling of the prezzies to KK and TKS. I went off and had a little nap after sniffing all that silver vine and other smells.

Katie is losing patience with TKS mauling the smelly nip purple toy. KK is too polite to wait her turn

And Katie, sweet Katie, was caught looking on at all the joyful things someone she never met sent to her, me and TKS just to help us have a most fun filled Christmas. I am sure KK is thinking ‘I wish all the other abandoned cats out in the cold had this bounty”. Sigh…

This is so nice…but there are so many who need this and so much more

Hope you enjoyed sharing our Secret Santa Paws experience in 2020. We are filled with an abundance of gratitude to have our home and do everything we can to help Mom L and Dad P and all our Project Delta View Cats volunteers bring even a bit of this abundance to all those abandoned community cats we serve in our city of Pittsburg, CA.

Here’s to a stellar New Year for every cat forced to live a life of lost love on the streets. Always Support Your Local Street Cats purrlease.
