Monday Meowsie News: Nap routine shifts at my castle

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have posted something about the latest changes in my castle napping routine on Mom L’s Facebook page. But I know lots of you do not see that. I think it is another part of how I am managing my openness and progress with Katie and yes, even TKS, after we have been together for about six years.

As you know I have always preferred to nap alone in my special places. Why even my trusted pet sitter Miss Kandi realized she was interrupting my nap on my couch when she came to visit, but she knew I could not miss out on her pawsome head massage.

Well I think I may have digressed from my original intention of bragging updating you on my progress relative to hanging out with “the other girls” in my castle.

So first of all, KK found out about the back of the couch after we bought her a new blankie from Miss Peggy Marting.

That led to this.

 

And then that led to another “this”!!

Yep!! All three of us on the couch napping one lovely morning.

Then we tried out this configuration.

Yeah I know the bed is a mess, BUT, check out how close we all are!

Then this happened just a day ago. Dad P purposefully placed blankies strategically on our master bed just to see if we might all “line up”.  And we did!!

I just keep on showing more and more of my REAL SELF!  Even though I am now hard of hearing, I can smell and feel movement when KK and TKS come near me. And yet, I am more tolerant. Time, patience and love.

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.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
