HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Lots of stuff going on around my castle since last Monday. Some of ordinary like me hissing a The Kid Sage and her tryin’ to get a whiffy of my butt, etc.  You all know how that goes, right??

Anywho…I have had my own moments of getting older start to show up. Mom L caught me comin’ down the stairs just as I staggered and fell on my left hip. My left knee is pretty bad with that arty-right-us stuff. Can any of you relate???

Nonetheless, I can still play on my carpeted stairs and I am developing my own personalized work out on my couch stairs too. Just give me a shout out if you want my new Savannah’s Short Step Workout video.

After a work out like that I need some time to just chill out, meditate and enter my own personalize “Zen” zone.

Zen cat

The Zen state is described as “the state of “no-mindness”. That is, a mind not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion and thus open to everything.”

Seriously, what cat can’t relate to THAT notion!!???? Let me know in comments how you get into your own personal ” Zen Zone”.

And this last week has seen some changes in The Kid Sage. She is succumbing to the wiles of our “foster” kid Kit Katie. Yes, yes…I know it is unbelievable but I have actually witnessed them doing “thundering head of elephants” at four AM!! Back and forth up and down the upstairs hallway. Sheeesh. They even head butt each other and TKS allows Katie to sidle up to her and rub against her. Thankfully the humans have NO photo evidence of this but I tell you it is real!

But you can tell that TKS is proud of her ability to be flexible enough to accept Kit Katie.

Wait! What? I didn’t say I was softie!!

Ok, well maybe TKS is still trying to avoid being a “softie” but hey, she just chills whenever Kit Katie is around. What more can I say.

Yeah, yeah…so I let Kit Katie have my last treat…big deal!

So, Kit Katie will remain with us until she can get past her problematic health challenges. Mom L and Dad P have been out a lot more green papers trying to get her leaky right eye treated. It will likely always leak but at least now she seems more comfortable. We will leave Katie posted on three websites but we are not longer taking her to any adoption events. She simple cannot withstand the stress. It challenges her immune system.

This is why Kit Katie will no longer be hosted at the end of my blog. Just want you all to know she is safe with us.

Over the Threshold and Through the Door We Go

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Catchy title don’t you think? Well, it’s about time I give you a peek at some of the incredible progress I have been making since we moved to our permanent home. Mom L thinks this home is changing all of us in lots of cool ways, and me especially.

I We have this really nice small balcony off of my our master bedroom. It was made especially charming when we had the redwood replaced to clean up some dry rot. Anyway, now it’s all nice and whatnot, Mom L used some gift cards Dad P got a while back to purchase a nice little table and chairs for them to enjoy having coffee on said balcony in the mornings.

Guess who they invited to join them the first time they used the balcony? Yup! Me and The Kid Sage. Now unfortunately when they made this invite, I was down stairs taking my second nap so TKS was the first to be invited OUTSIDE!

Hey! This air smells really fresh!

TKS enjoyed herself lots as she explored the balcony and what lies beyond and under it.

Is that our master bedroom on the other side? Am I outside??

Silly cat. She knew she was taking the big step to the outside.

Gosh, I can see all of our patio and the water.

And then she made a most remarkable discovery.

Hey Dad P! I can see through this crack all the way down!!

At least she didn’t forget about me getting my chance to be outside.

‘Scuse me, I’m gonna go get Savvy so she can be outside too.

I don’t know if TKS was ever outside before she came to live at my castle. But I sure was outside way more than I wanted to be. So being outside hasn’t been at the top of my priority list, na’mean?? I spent enough time outside trying to fend for myself and it wasn’t pretty. But, Mom L offered me the decision to be outside with her.

What Mom L? I know the door is open.

I could feel the really fresh air and I knew there was no screen between me and that redwood deck.

I don’t know if I wanna go out. Been there, done that

I took my time thinking through my choices.

Oh alright. I’ll come outside and have a look see just to please TKS.

I knew TKS was gonna interrogate me once I went back downstairs, so I took a little “walk about”.

Hmmm…looks like the neighbors have some pretty flowers on their patio.

Mom L wasn’t expecting me to do a critique of our out doors area, but hey? She invited me out, right?

Mom L? What don’t we have any pretty flowers for me and TKS to enjoy on our patio?

Ok, ok—maybe I was to quick to judge. I know we haven’t been here that long and Mom L has been busy with other stuff. So I moved right along.

Wow! I can see the water even better from here! Is that a fishie I saw jumpin’??

No kidding, we have fish in our fresh water marina and people fish for the fishies all the time from their boat docks. Our water moves all day long with the tides from the two river delta area.

I was very relaxed being outside once again, much to Mom L’s relief and mine. I am growing in my confidence every day since we moved here. Why I even allowed one of Mom L’s friends to pet me last week. In fact, I INVITED her to join me on my our new living room area rug to rub my whole body, give me ear rubs AND I let her pet my tummy!! Yes, I really did!! That, my pals, is progress!!

Virtual Road Trip—Lake Tahoe!!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I know you were all wondering just where Mom L and Dad P took off to for their little two night getaway. Thankfully they didn’t go far, just up to Incline Village, Lake Tahoe on the Nevada state side.

Of course TKS tried to join them right away!

You can tell she has been taking lessons from The Kitty Platoon!

Well, that didn’t work so I decided TKS and I ought to join them “virtually”.

Nice bed, warm blankie...think I will stay

My Sunday Selfie photo was showing off the pawtastic sunset Mom L and her pal Doc Josie waited to view for an hour or more.

Here is Lady Sun going down.

And she finally gave over to the start of Mr Night Sky.

We decided we ought to also join them in their comfy lodging. I personally think our their bed was just about right! You can see my approval in that first photo, right? And then TKS tried out their very roomy bathroom sink!

Why yes! This is just my size!

Why yes! This is just my size!

And I could not allow them to try out their dining table without checking it out myself.

Yes, I believe this is just fine. You may now dine

Finally, TKS and I decided to allow Mom L and Dad P to enjoy themselves, but not without first testing the lovely waters of Lake Tahoe.
