How’s Your Wednesday Shaping Up?


Just a couple of words to make sure you know what I am talkin’ about. First off, I have finally found Spring Summer Spring Summer in my Northern California homeland!! You get my meaning that the weather is not bein’ too friendly right now.

As my buddy across the bay, Spitty, has already let all our readers know—it is HOT HOT HOT!! And this is not the time of year to have this kind of thing happening. But then Spitty has never been a cat to keep from lording it over his hotter than hot East Bay neighbors. Seriously Spitty??

As for me, I have been trying to keep my tummy furs open to all possible breezes—mostly those coming from our aircon!

Can you see my armpit sweat???

Enough of that. Let me share a much appreciated “shout out” from my pal Herman Tattle Cat aka Wonderpurr Life. He is, of course, a Finalist in the Nose-to-Nose Awards, sponsored by BlogPaws, in the category for Best Humor Blog !


Herman created this way cool image and gave me a shout out under his Twitter handle @TattleCat.

I know this is a lotta words on a supposedly wordless day, but hey—I have to let you know what’s going on in my world, right?

Now, I want to hear from my readers about what is going on with your WEDNESDAY!!

What’s your Wednesday looking like?

Leave me an update in my comments and then paw the badge below to transport over to visit some less wordy pet blogging pals.


Meet My Fellow Cause Blog Finalists #blogpaws


I try mighty hard to keep my promises. Remember I promised in my Monday post I would introduce my readers to my fellow finalists for the BlogPaws 2017 Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Best CAUSE Blog Category.

One of my fellow finalists is a new blog to me. And oh my cat! Does this blog ever have some great information?

Please let me hear a round of APAWS for The Sarcastic Dog!!!

I’m gonna be passing along their helpful posts about “Changing the Conversation about Pit Bulls” to my pals at my local county public Animal Services Department. They have lots of bully dogs enter the shelter as strays and owner surrenders. This type of “bully” dog is often mistaken as a registered dog breed, and it is not as The Sarcastic Dog points out.

The term “Pit Bull” has become a bit of a misnomer in that there is no single breed of dog that is a “Pit Bull” and the term generally includes any dog with a blocky head and muscular body type. Most commonly the term includes American Pit Bull TerriersBull TerriersAmerican Staffordshire Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers.  Frequently, American Bull Dogs and other blocky headed dogs are included under the “bully breed” label as are many other mixed breed dogs making blanket statements about behavior and visual identification that much more difficult and unreliable.”

The next two fellow finalists are pet bloggers I know pretty well and we have even worked on some causes together.

Another round of APAWS for The Daily Pip!!!

This blogger writes about lots of pet related topics including  all things dog, cat and bunnies. She can write the deep inside scoop about all three because all three species live in the same home! How great is that?

Now I’m not too sure, but from reading her blog post on Monday this week, it sounds like there may be some confusion among Ruby, the dog, Rosie, the cat and Lulu, the bunny as to just “who” is “what” species. You have to go read that post cuz it is a laugh to be sure.

On a more serious note, be sure to visit their page with lots of posts about a cause near and dear to the writer—senior and special need companion animals who need our help.

Another fellow finalist are my pals Three Chatty Cats!

One more round of APAWS!!!

They report on all manner of interesting rescue organizations, foundations and even television shows like Shelter Me. Now I wouldn’t have even known about this national PBS television show if I didn’t read about it on Three Chatty Cats.

You can check out some of this television series topics just by visiting their blog post here.

So hurry on over to my three fellow finalists’ blogs and read some of their great stuff. Please be sure to leave a comment to tell them Savannah’s Paw Tracks sent you by for a visit!!


The Kid Sage: Shortest Attention Span on Earth


Do you have a fur family member with a short attention span?? You so have to tell me in comments and give EXAMPLES please!

Movin’ on—so you know that TKS luvluvluvs helping Dad P make their our bed every Sunday morning.

Well, what you may not know is how easily she is distracted by her purrsonal needs and interests.

Bring it on Dad P!! I’m ready to play “making the bed”!

As you can see, she is ready, even eager. Anticipating the first move.

I can see your first move with the wand stick Dad!

She waits for Dad P to move the handle end of the wand to make her suspect there is something UNDER the new top sheet.

You can’t fool me Dad P! I see that wand handle

She anticipates, waits and then attacks for the kill! Expert!!

Wait a minute. Something is happening to my energy level

Her “energy level”??? What the heck is that all about? Can’t she focus?

*snort* ahem—just a sec’—zzzz

TKS simply cannot maintain focus on what she is doing at any given time. Why I doubt she can focus….

Hang on Dad P, whats that I see outside?

…on anything. Well, except maybe excluding whatever catches her attention in a nanosecond.

Now she is re-focusing on something else other than bed making—typical TKS.

I can see it!! Can you???

Finally she catches MY attention! What in cat’s name is she seeing outside???

Holy catnip!! I can’t believe my own eyes and nose! It’s back!!!

No telling what “it” might be, but clearly TKS has seen it before, even if only in her own mind’s eye. Like I said, shortest attention span on earth!


PeeEss—Please be sure to join me this Wednesday for my blog post introducing my readers to my fellow Finalists for the Nose-to-Nose Social Media Awards from BlogPaws. Winners will be announced at the May 2017 BlogPaws Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA.
