A Favorite Sun Puddle Time of Year

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

No matter if you are a woofie or kitty, I bet’cha you are much like me—meaning that you have your very own favorite sun puddle during particular times of the year.

My favorite sun puddle in May to early June is in our master bedroom. We have an unusable balcony with a sliding glass door which is covered with what Mom L refers to as “those ugly vertical blinds”. Now TKS and I have no idea why she  doesn’t like the blinds because we both enjoy inserting our bodies in among those very same blinds in search of a special sun puddle this time of year.

Actually Mom L may be referring to the fact that “said blinds” do tend to fall off their track when we kitties push among them to find this special seasonal sun puddle. But I say “ppfffft!” It’s a sun puddle! Who cares about getting to it.

But I have digressed. ‘Scuse me. Let me move along. So this morning Mom L saw me getting ready to settle into this special seasonal sun puddle and she decided to make my morning pleasure into a photo shoot! Yep, she did that very thing.

*sigh* “Such a nice morning”

I realized quickly that I was being spied on by the Momarazzie and let her know I knew.

“got’cha Mom L! I see you and that smartie pants phone”

But then I saw a shadow and knew some bird was offering itself up for some bird TV viewing so I had to take my attention away from Mom L for a second.

“Hey birdie! Come back around one more time!”

Trust me! I did not forget that Mom L was usurping my morning leisure time in a favorite seasonal sun puddle for her “Savannah Photo Shoot”!!

“OK!! Alright already! I see you snapping away on that smartie pants phone!”

I did get in the last harrummppff at Mom L when I started to give her my *back of disdain*. Not sure that made a difference but it sure did make me feel in charge!

“Mom L? This is it, I am done. Now scoot away and mind your own business!

Do your humans ever invade you when you are enjoying a favorite seasonal sun puddle??? How do you get them to move along and leave you alone?? Give me a yeowl out or woof out in comments.

Super Cat

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Now you are gonna want to know just “who” is this Super Cat, right? Well guess! Come on, take a wild guess—and tell me if this Super Cat has a cape that can fly!

Ok, ok…here’s a hint. I’ll show you a part of Super Cat’s body as he/she rests under the flying cape.

Who is Super Cat? Under the cape of invisibility

WHAT???? You say not enough of that body part to even lodge a guess as to who is Super Cat? Alright, one more photo of more of that body part.

Can you see the tell tail stripes? (*hint* Tabby Cat Club Member)

Harruummmppfff! Super Cat cannot just hang out under the invisibility cape and wait for readers to determine the true identity of that feline body part.

SWOOOOSH! And off Super Cat flies!!! Wearing the invisibility cape which helps Super Cat fly!

Super Cat flies with the invisibility cape to lift paws off the ground!

Sadly, Super Cat must quickly shirk off the invisibility flying cape.

Get off my tail you cape!!

And yes, you are right. Super Cat is indeed TKS. As you can tell by all her body markings and her tail…TKS is the mysterious Super Cat.

Ceiling Cat knows I would never ever go running around with some stoopid piece of tissue paper over me and think it was a flying invisibility cape, right? Come’on guys! You all know me too well. Remember, I am the adult shelter rescue cat who “doesn’t play”!

Now I confess—I do luvluvluv to fly around Mom L’s and my office wearing whatever Super Cat Tissue cape is available. Just one more sign of my continuing progress.

I, Savannah the Cat, am continuing to gain confidence, self respect and enjoy being loved.

Pawing Forward: The Second Recipient of Mandy’s Hope Chest

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

On my Monday post this week you met Nitro, the first recipient of half of Mandy’s Hope Chest. Today you get to meet Jimmy, aka CJ (Charming Jack).

CJ’s new permanent family changed his name to Jimmy but they purromised us that he will always be “charming”.

Jimmy appeared out of nowhere one day at a feeding station for community cats. He was new, but clearly he had once had a home as he was also very social with the feeder. Not much time passed until he showed up with a severely injured right hind leg. The kind colony feeder trapped him and took him to my county’s animal services shelter.

They determined that Jimmy had a badly broken leg and it would prove impossible to repair. Sadly, Jimmy lost his right hind leg, most likely from having been hit by a car. Not long after his surgery, my former rescue organization, Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS) pulled Jimmy from the county shelter and transferred him to their no kill Kitty Corner. As expected, even missing one leg, Jimmy was adopted within less than a week!

Even better—he was adopted along with a play pal he found at Kitty Corner, Athena. She is now called Jilly! A great pair don’t ya think?

And please notice that Jilly quickly determined that the handmade toys from Miss Ellen of the 15 And Meowing cat blog belonged ALL to her!

Jimmy likes to semi-hide and then surprise his pal Jilly. She doesn’t mind and then a game of patty paw ensues.

That  blue mousey is one of the toys Mandy gave to Jimmy. They are wonderful eco-friendly cat toys from Honest Pet Products. Be sure to check them out! I have some information about this wonderful brand at the end of this post.

When Mom L pulled out Jimmy’s bag of Incredible Cat Litter, he ran right over to see if his head matched the top of the bag!! Silly charming Jimmy!!

Jilly was tickled to be able to share in Jimmy’s bounty and once again you can see she is luv’in on one of those special Miss Ellen drumstick toys.

Mom L was so pleased to get to meet one of the senior resident cats named Chop. He is seventeen years old and very social. The new cat bed is now called The Bed of Chop.

Kitties I must tell you that TKS and I are wonderin’ if maybe we ought to have kept that way cool cat tower Jimmy got. It is a modular system and so Jimmy’s new parents can add pieces on and make it even BIGGER! Jimmy was first to test drive the tower. He doesn’t know he is missing one leg. He is runnin’ around like any other crazypants kitty!

Jimmy and Jilly each received cat food bowls like the ones TKS and I use. So did Nitro. Every kitty loves these pedestal wide bowls which don’t cause any whisker fatigue.

Jimmy is gonna be a rock star cat, just you wait and see.

I know all of my readers are relieved to see Mandy’s (aka Momma Kat) Hope Chest having a happy tails ending of its own. Mom L and I know that Mandy is purring away knowing that Jimmy and Nitro, both victims of car injuries as she was, are enjoying all the wonderful contents of her Hope Chest.

Mom L and I are also relieved to know that Mandy is at least safe and will be fed and given medical care as will her five grown kittens. I am calling this a Happy Tails Ending for Mandy’s Hope Chest. I hope you all do as well.
