Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Archive for the category “Savannahs progress”



Ok, ok, ok. I guess a senior ladycat, aka Princess, can learn a new thing or one. Yeah, only one. For those who have followed my blog since the beginning, you know that I had a really tough time accepting Sage aka The Kid Sage aka TKS. And when sweet KK aka Katie arrived, she was easy to accept because she is so very timid of not only other cats, but also of Mom L and Dad P.

So then we were a threesome and I was ok with that. I knew I was THE Princess of my castle.

Enter The Domino Kid, age now at eight months, aka Domie aka juvenile delinquent! Yup! This kid just doesn’t know what “by your leave” means!! He just goes about “his” business assuming all of us ladycats are gonna make room for him. HAH!!!

*ears turning red*—ahem…koff…koff—well I may be relenting just a teeny tiny bit. This boy cat is not only very humble around me, he is also kind’a warm. And my old bones like extra warmth, na’mean???

So here he is this week, trying to get as close to my royal body as possible whilst I rest in my lovely warm tent on my our master bed. 

Mom L comes in to find only his feetsies showing??!!

Now she fears the worst! He is trying to interrupt my afternoon nap time. There he is, spread out like a long sausage against the pillows that make up my napping tent.

Holy Cat!! Mom L finds that he has stretched out so that his paws are nanoseconds from MY ROYAL PAWS!!

My pals, my pals. I had no idea he wanted to be so near my royal presence—sigh—the price of being a royal.

Then just yesterday, Mom L was sitting on my our couch, near me; and this boy cat jumps right up behind Mom L and glues himself to ME!!

Mind you, I am deaf so I did not hear him—but I certainly felt him. And …ahhh…hmmmm…he was kind’a warm and comforting. Wait!! No, no, I don’t mean I actually “liked” his smelly boy cat body next to mine. No, no—not at all. But then—

When Mom L glared at him, he turned and stuck his wet, drippy juvenile nose into my furs!!! And, well—I never hissed, grumbled nor did I snarl!! So unlike me!! Finally, he walked right over my body and settled himself in, tucked up a bit next to my royal self.

And, well—I could not help myself. I just finally relaxed with Mom L stroking me, and I settled in and yes, I slept. He was very nice and warm.



We three girls in our castle


I am, of course posting my Monday blog post late…sigh. But at least it is gonna be out there for any and all to take a look.

Moving on, I thought it has been a while since I shared some recent photos of me, Sage and Katie—living the good life in my castle.

I am first up, naturally, right?! You can see me visiting some of the volunteers who met in my castle to  plan for Delta View Cats’ inaugural fund raiser yard sale. I was upstairs napping and decided to go down for a snack. Wow! There was a meeting going on that I needed to get in there and snoopervise. In the past, I would not have joined in with all those strangers, but I went right over to my stairs, climbed up onto my couch and checked out Mr. Burt and Miss Shannon who were sitting there.

You will also see me hangin’ out under my tent on my bed when Miss Kandi was staying with us while Mom L and Dad P were away.

Next up is Sage aka The Kid Sage aka TKS. She is such a bootiful house panther. Sage and I have never been really close, but I know that she so loves to sit on Mom L’s lap and take a nap. This makes Mom L so very happy so’s that’s OK by me.

Now for Katie aka KK. She is such a cutie and she makes sure that Sage and I know she respects us. She and Sage play chase through the house, up and down the stairs and whatnot. One of her favorite things to do is hang from the stairs with her front legs hanging over and then she streeeeettttccchhhheeeesss our her front legs and spreads both her paws. You can just hear her toe knuckles cracking!!

Hope you enjoyed being a part of my castle world for a few moments. Thanks for sticking with me while Mom L and I try to figure out how to get about ten more hours in our day!!!


Your Purrs and POTP paid off!


I am joining my buddies Brian, Seal and Simon, Brian’s Home, for their weekly Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. And I have a ton to be thankful for!! You know Mom took over my blog on Monday to tell you about what’s been happening in my castle and with me.


Well, I did have to go the my doc so’s he could do that ultrasound thingy. That was to check for lymphoma (my irritable bowel disease can progress into that) and last Friday he snatched some of my bloods so’s he could do a test about my kidney disease progress.


My ultrasound showed NO LYMPHOMA at this time and no suspicious masses and whatnot!! AND—my blood results show that my kidneys are back in the normal range!!! Even though I take prednisolone for my IBD, which is not good for my CKD, that med has NOT pushed my CKD to become worse!!! WOO HOO!!!

Now I do have some bile sludge stuff in my gall bladder which probably is upsetting my tummy and making my appetite not so good. So’s the doc is putting me on some oral med, chik-hen flavored of course, to help me feel better. I get my fluids twice a week from Mom L and Dad P, and my appetite stimulant about every three to four days to keep me eating. We are gonna try me on some salmon oil for my furs but I’m thinkin’ I am not gonna like that stuff. Kind’a like I don’t like that cerenia pill bein’ put in my food. I can smell that thing six inches away from my food bowl and I won’t eat until they remove it. I’ll just have to feel a bit nauseated. Oh well…

So you know that I am thankful beyond any words. And Mom L and Dad P are over the moon happy with my test results. I am still not outta the woods ‘cuz I am, as you know, a senior gal. But I have your POTP and the best vet and greatest love and care from Mom and Dad, Katie and TKS.

Thank you all for being here for me. Click on the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop badge below and transport yourself over to some other really fine blogs!!
