Katie has a new nightly routine

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I am so proud of my sisfur Katie. Like me, her early life was filled with trauma that told her humans were no trustworthy. Unlike me, Katie lived through that trauma in the first five months of her life and I, I lived it for the first five years.

We don’t know what happened to me, but we do know what happened to Katie and all of us, especially Mom L and Dad P have been working on encouraging her to reveal more and more of her REAL SELF. And she is!!

When we fostered Katie after her rescue from a horrible hoarding situation, she lived in Mom L’s office and she grew to love throwing herself down so’s Mom L could rub her belly from head to toes. But then she went through that terrible time of two round of ring worm, and then being returned three times by uncaring “adopters” and so she decided that belly rubs were no longer safe.

Hallelujah! Katie is starting to live those belly rubs again. Dad P has been working on her for about two months now, and he has turned this into her new nightly routing after her evening play time.

Wheee!!!

Oh wait! Dad P??!! Where did you go?

Are you still there Dad P? I lost you!

Once in a while Mom L can do this, but mostly Katie only allows Dad P right now. You see, Katie’s abusive hoarder was a female human and Katie still doesn’t trust Mom L as much as she does Dad P. Makes Mom L sad and she gets leaky eyes sometimes. I hope Katie will learn like I have that Mom L is gentle and kind and loves us.

Ohhhh—that feels so great

All the while Dad P is petting and brushing Katie, she rolls and rolls and rolls on our living room rug. She does it so much that Dad P has to vacuum it every other day because she rubs her loose furs off!!! MOL

Ok, now do the other side Dad P

Did any of my readers have to overcome the trust issue with your humans? Let me hear your stories in comments purrlease.

My many faces and moods

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Mom L suggested that my readers might enjoy viewing a series of close up  photos she took of me recently; as well as a couple of short videos of me playing with one of my iPad games. I may be about 14 years old, but this kitty is still stylin’!!

Actually Mom L was trying to capture the true color of my green eyes in natural light. She swears I have turquoise in my eyes!! Silly Mom L!

What do you think?

Just so’s you all know I still have my playful spirit, check out my moves with this fishie.

Hope you found pleasure in these troubling times taking a look at my many faces.

Friday Memes for Friday Smiles

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

It’s that time to get your Friday smiles broken in. I think I have a couple of memes that will do just that and one extra to introduce you to a special kitty.

Don’t you just know that is exactly what that bed buddy is doing? Yuck!

Isn’t this every cat’s idea of “who owns what” when there are dogs involved in the cat’s castle?? Seriously!! We all know that “cats rule and dogs drool”. Period!!

Garfield is a very special senior member of the River View Park cat colony that Mom L and Dad P and I are helping to humanely manage. He found his way to this park after hopping off his last oil freighter adventure where he was serving as ship’s cat. And he was so loved by the cats that they made him their leader. Garfield is a lovable fifteen year old cat. He is in desperate need of a retirement home where he can get all the pets and lap time he wants and where he can live out his final years in comfort, warmth and aircon! He has had blood work that shows he is in good health for his age and he has had a dental cleaning. Our Project Delta View Cats group will fund all of his senior years medical needs through end of life.

If you know anyone in the San Francisco bay area who is open to taking Garfie into their home, let me know in comments. And if not, then please share his photo, you have my permission to copy his photo and share it with family, friends who might be able to help him.
