Gotta Luv My BFGF!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I just wanna do a special post to give a great big SHOUT OUT THANK YOU to my BFGF (best feline girl friend) Stunning Cathy Keisha and TW, her office admin.

I was pretty bummed that Mom L couldn’t get to Blog Paws this year, what with my blog being a finalist cause blog and all. But especially because TW was gonna be there with plush CK and plush Savvy really wanted to have a nice long BFGF chat. Alas, that never happened—BUT!

TW and plush CK did manage to score some really nice items for me and TKS and Mom L at the Cat Lounge. The cat nip we got was premium grade and Mom L has been stuffing it in lots of our refillable toys. But plush CK picked out these really cool ‘nip sticks that really got TKS going!

OMC!! This is like totally delish!

TKS could barely take a breath she was so caught up in this nip toy.

Puff, puff…I’m afraid to let go cuz I might loose this nip delight!

Then when I pawed into the room she really became paranoid.

THIS! IS! MINE!!

I said “ok, ok Kid, don’t get your furs all in a knot!” I did have my time with this delish nip toy and I also enjoyed it lots. In fact we are still having a heck of a good time with it, so thanks a ton BFGF for thinkin’ of us at Blog Paws!!

And TW did not leave out Mom L! When Mom L saw what TW had scored for her, Mom L was over the moon with squealing and delight. She totally luvluvluvs her bright TNR t-shirt and the Triple T Studios cat necklace is a really pretty piece of jewelry. Mom L wears it lots and lots.

Great message and the necklace is so lovely

Of course Mom L was registered so she was able to get Miss Janet from The Cat On My Head to pick up her swag bag. We asked that she not mail it to us until after our big move. Another shout out of appreciation for Miss Janet for taking the time to send that big bag off to us!

Being a member of this cat blogging community is the reason I am trying to get back to my blogging and writin’ about the rescue causes I want to share with all of you. I sure am one fortunate cat to have pals like all of you.

Cat Rescue Work Keeps Going

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I’ve been going on and on about our move, and I do have more to say about that, but you know Mom L and Dad P did NOT stop doing what they could to help shelter cats and community cats.

We had only been in our new home about ten days and it was time for the July SNIP (Spay Neuter Impact Program) Clinic. Mom L and Dad P never hesitated—they signed up for their usual full shifts. You can learn more about SNIP if you read some of my earlier posts here and here.

There were eighty-five cats who passed through this last clinic, one was lovingly helped to The Bridge as he was very ill. A full clinic and every single human hand was needed to make this happen. At the last minute Mom L learned there were not enough Vets and it would be cancelled. And then a miracle—Miss Eileen who is a primary organizer for SNIP sent out a plea to Vets across the San Francisco Bay Area and they come through! One Vet clinic owner brought several of his vets and vet techs!! Success!!!

Thought you would enjoy seeing some of the kitties. Their eyes reveal how frightened they are but if only they understood how much this clinic will improve their quality of life.

These pretty Siamese girls came in from a community member who trapped them in her back yard.

Only one would turn around for Mom L, the other gave her backside view! They had to be transferred to individual cat traps to be admitted because the clinic does not allow cats to come through in cat carriers. The policy is in place to try to insure member of the public do not use this clinic to S/N their own pets. This clinic is solely for S/N and vaccinate community cats.

Two more “worried eyes” Mom L checked in for their SNIP experience.

Dad P and Mom L also responded with a “no problem” when the Adoption Manager from Contra Costa Humane Society asked if they could transport eight adult cats from the county animal shelter to my old home at Kitty Corner!! And we were STILL in the process of getting moved! Be sure to hover over photos for captions!

Now you all know that even though I still have lots to share about my move, my Paw It Forward work continues—let me know in comments what you have been doin’ lately to Paw It Forward.

How We Roll On Togetherness

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Lots of my readers are continuing to hope that one day TKS and I will curl up together. Hate to disappoint, but don’t go gettin’ your knickers in a ruffle ‘cuz that just isn’t how we roll.

Anytime we are together on the same piece of furniture is a moment that gets Mom L and Dad P all excited.

Missed sun puddle

I don’t get it actually, we get on my our king size bed at night, opposite sides of course—we each have our own human to keep warm. Why don’t they take photos of that? Bad lighting?? No wide angle lens?? Don’t wanna use the flash??

But then they have no problem when they find us during the day, na’mean?

uh-oh-turnover

Why do YOU think they don’t ever take photos of me and TKS at night when we make Mom L the filling in our “kitty-cat sandwich”??

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH

Pee Ess—I am sending my best paw pats to all of you who have been supportin’ me and Mom L in our SECOND CALL TO ACTION efforts on behalf of the community cats on Kauai.  We are workin’ hard to respond to all your tweets, Face Book shares and blog posts. We sent off our second letter to that dang Feral Cat Ordinance Committee today.

Pee Ess Ess—And I have not forgotten I owe you an update on Momma Kat (click on her name to view my blog post about her, you won’t regret the time, purromise) and the contents of her Hope Chest. I am just wait’in on a couple of more items to be delivered and it is complete. Mom L and I are in contact with her foster human Mr. Devin and Bright Haven weekly. She will never leave my Paw It Forward radar until she is in her well deserved forever home.

You need your face washed young lady
