Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

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!

Friday Memes Just for You!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Come on my pals, come get your Friday smiles going. I have some super special memes just for your delight.

First up is one I wrote for Mom L. You see, when she was in Africa, she fell all smitten over these weird looking animals called Wart Hogs. Seriously! So this meme is for my Mom L.

Yup, there ya have it. Those little feisty creatures in all their mud bound glory!

Of course I had to include one for myself after that. And I dedicate this one to my pals at Trout Towne Tabbies.

Sure do hope that one gets those Trout Towne guys a giggle or two.

Now for a meme from our current foster kittens. The smallest, Lilly, is now off to be with her sibling. So we just have Katie with us now. And if all goes as hoped, Miss Katie will be headed off to finding her very own permanent home in the next week!! These two sure did help each other out a lot, don’t ya think?

That’s it for this Friday’s Memes. I sure do hope you will give me a shout out in comments to let me know what you liked!

Due to technical difficulty

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

This means our laptop and monitor stopped meowing to each other almost two weeks ago. Mom L has a ton of eyesight challenges  trying to create anything presentable just using her laptop screen. Everything is too itty bitty. A new monitor is on its way but not sure when it’s gonna show up at my front door.

I have so much to tell you all that I can hardly think where to begin. We have had such an active last six weeks what with our current foster house guest, biped house guests, Mom L’s injury, and so much rescue work going on, well…let me just say…I plenty of blog post topics to last me for a while!! MOL!

Thank you for understanding why I have not been posting regularly. In fact, I am pretty sure I have convinced Mom L to take some time off to get her head wrapped back around my blog. I’ll let you know this week when and for how long we will be taking a planned break.

 

I have a photo of me I thought you might enjoy cuz it shows off my green eyes. Hope that will help make up for being absent without telling you why.

The Kid Sage just couldn’t believe her fan club would wanna go missing out on getting a little sight of her recently enjoying a sun puddle we kind’a tussle over.

And I thought you would like a look at our rescue kitten house guest. Katie aka Miss Katie, is about 7 months old. She has already had a litter of kittens but looks like none survived. She is a rescue from an apartment hoarding situation Mom L and Dad P stumbled on about six weeks ago. She arrived horribly malnourished and terrified of every noise and human. But, Katie is not feral, just so scared. She never got to be a real kitten so we are workin’ hard to remind her of what that looks like. She is playing but still very scared and mostly doesn’t walk up right, just kind’a low to the ground.

More about her and her part in the apartment hoarding rescue we have been smothered with for some time.

Hope you enjoy the photos. I’ll get back to you as soon as we get our monitor!!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
