There’s another dare devil in my castle!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Hey guys, do you remember that blog post I did about TKS and what an incredible dare devil she is in our newer home? Well I included a link to that post so go on, take a couple of secs to head over and refresh your memories. *tappit, tap, tap, tappity, tap, tap* All done?

Great! Now here is the latest FYI (for your information) comin’ from my castle. There is ANOTHER, yes, ANOTHER dare devil in my castle.

Oh my cat! I never knew there was a view on the other side of this litter box

What’s that sound? Did I hear some squeaking down the hall?

Is TKS making silly noises down the hall?

Nope. Sounds like it must be coming from down below. Who knew there was this incredible view out to the back garden from up here on this end of the hall? There!! I heard it again!! A sort’a high pitched squeal almost. You know, like the kind you hear when a biped kid is learning its high notes. Whatever can that be?

Wow! I wonder if I can make the jump from up here to the landing?

Ok! Now that squeaking, squealing sound is louder and really annoying!! Wait!! It can’t be Mom L, can it? She’s sitting there in Dad P’s chair watching me having all this fun. Those noises can’t be coming from her, can they? Why would she ever make noises like that?

What’cha doin’ Mom L? Why is your face so pale?

Yep, Mom L finally confessed that she was doin’ all she could do to not shriek, scream and dial 911 when she saw me, with my limpy bad hind knees walking outside the upstairs banister like TKS does all the time. Now Mom L doesn’t like it when TKS does it either, but I guess watchin’ me was more than she could take.

Silly Mom L! She told me she had a plan to grab the fleece blankie on her lap and dash under me so’s she could break my fall!! AS IF!!! Why I am a cat! I wasn’t gonna fall!

What have you done lately to keep your human on their watch out??

Senior style cat tree!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Most of my long time readers know that I kind’a suffer from arty-right-us in both my knees. This means I no longer can get up on my original cat tree, Dad P bought just special for me, when he and Mom L brought me to my forever castle.

You can see “some kitty” now lives on my former fave cat tree. Bummer indeed.

BUT!! WAIT!! Even in our senior years we cats can be very creative. Not only did I insist that Mom L and Dad P put carpet on our new and last home’s set of stairs, I insisted that I get nice carpeted short steps for me to use to get on the couch with Mom L and also up on our bed too.

Well just guess—go on—guess??!! What game did I create to use my short stairs to make up for not having the ability to get up on my fave cat tree???

YES!! You guessed right!! I made my short stairs into my NEW, BETTER IMPROVED CAT TREE FOR SENIORS!!!

See? I can still fit in between the steps.

Mom L?? Where the heck is my favorite peacock feather?

Good grief!! How long does a senior cat have to wait for play time??

Here we go!! I knew Mom L would get my concept. Super!

I do back flips, front flips and upside down flips on just three steps. AWESOME SAUCE!!!

What do you think of my new concept Cat Tree For Seniors?????

Doesn’t Every Cat Have One?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Sometimes my Mom L makes me wanna just slap my paw to my forehead in disbelief. Do you ever feel that way about your humans?

So here’s one of my special peeves. Now let me ask all of my readers today—Do all of you make sure your human makes you a very nice cozy tent on the bed you share with them once they get outta your bed? SEE!! I knew it!! All of you shook your heads YES! I keep telling Mom L I most certainly am not the “only” cat that gets a tent made for me to snuggle in once she gets outta our bed. Why I learned all about how these tents get built and how special they are from my angel mentor Sammy, from One Two Spoiled Cats.

I don’t much care if I get my tent made in the Summer, but buddy it better get made and fast when the temps start to drop and the days get short and those nights get longer. Yes sirree!!

In fact, I am now so confident I never even leave the bed while Mom L is making my tent. I used to dash off because all her flappin’ and shakin’ of those bed covers and folding those blankets for me was just too much commotion. But now, I have to almost be made to move my body to give her space to make my tent! How’s that for progress? Even after SEVEN, yes SEVEN whole years with my Mom L and Dad P, I am still making progress on getting past my earlier traumas before picking them as my Mom and Dad.

What’d’ya mean? Spoiled?

So there you have it. I am not spoiled. I just like to snoopervise sometimes to make sure Mom L makes my tent just the way I like it.

Get a move on Mom L, you’re wasting daylight!

It takes a lot of skill to make my tent just right and sometimes I have to hang around close so I can do some building inspection.

No. I don’t want that blankie for my base. I want the one with stars from Alfie.

Mom L gets a bit lax when it comes to making the selection for the blanket that goes down first and that’s important because it’s the one that I lay on for cat’s sake!

Ok, ok, I’ll move over a bit to give you room to make it right.

She makes such a fuss about trying to get all the wrinkles out of the bed cover. Humans don’t get it that we cats never mind a wrinkle or two, makes it more cozy, don’t ya think?

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Luvluvluv Alfie’s blankie.

I got so excited about Alfie’s blankie I almost tried to zip under it!! MOL! Mom L had to make me wait until she got the rest of the tent structure in place.

Slurp…now this is gonna be a really great tent.

It continues to surprise Mom L and Dad P how casual I have become about all the motion that goes into making my tent. Just a year ago I would have been downstairs already!

Tuck in this corner better please

I have to be careful that the corners are tight otherwise TKS tries to find a way to get under part of my tent. And that doesn’t make me a happy kitty at all.

Yep. Nice tight corner, that’s the way I like it

Before Mom L can even get my favorite plaid blanket tent top set up I am already eager to check out my tent for the day.

Sweet! This is one of your better efforts Mom L

She leaves me a bit of a rear window in case I wanna check out what’s going on out on the water. I like to watch the boats going in and out of our channel.

Yikes! That boat is a big one!

So here I am, ready for my morning tent nap. Nice and cozy just like all us cats like our tents.

Isn’t this just the best!?

No you guys describe for me in comments how your humans make your tent. I bet’cha you have nifty ones too!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
