Nip time never gets old

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First off I wanna say how sorry I am that I missed my last Monday’s blog post. Mom L and I were all set to get down to writing, but then I had a really bad pain in my right hind leggie and Mom L and Dad P dashed me off to our best animal emergency hospital. It always happens on a Sunday, right? Long story short, it seems I have a soft tissue injury likely gotten when I was trying to get away from that little foster introoder Pipsqueak. He is a five month old black kitten who is always tryin’ to sniff my tail or my butt. Sheeesh! I got some pain meds and that helped lots, but then I had to make another last minute trip to my regular vet two days later. I have a urinary tract infection, perhaps caused by stress?

I am lots better now, but I am still spending most of my daytime napping behind the couch. I am very cautious around the foster Pip. He is such a gentle kitten, not aggressive at all. I just don’t want another kitten to get used to; Katie was enough. Hopefully he will find his true forever home soon!

Now on to my happy nip post! Even an old gal like me, at 14 years, can still enjoy some sniffin’ and pawin’ at nip, right? Mom L loaded up the scratcher on our ball chasin’ toy and sat back to see who would try the nip out first. Guess who??? ME!!!

Mom L wasn’t fast enough to catch me rubbing my face in the nip, all she got were my “what’cha lookin’ at” looks!! MOL

You interrupted me!!

And she got another one trying to capture me enjoying myself!

Come on Mom L; cut out that photo stuff!

We sure did get some great video of Katie havin’ a total Nip Out! She wasn’t gonna share that nip with anyone, not even her new buddy foster kitten Pipsqueak.

Katie was too busy to even notice Mom L and her camera.

She was happy to touch noses with foster Pipsqueak but she wasn’t movin’ over to let him onto that scratcher.

When Katie stopped, she just kind’a stared off into space for a bit! Silly Katie.

Whoa!! Why is the room spinning??

When was the last time you had a nip attack??

Katie’s First Art Project

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First I am so sorry I didn’t post my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. Mom L injured her right index finger and could not type for me.  She is lots better, but if you find silly typos in this post, please ignore, Ok?!

Right! Moving on to the amazing start of a potential artist in our furramily.

Our Sunday morning started off pretty much as usual, kitties snoozing in our unmade bed.

Mom L thought Katie looked bored so’s she opened up a cat game on her iPad to see if Katie might enjoy it. I know I sure did the first time I tried it. That squeekie mousie is really fast on  that screen.

Examining her palette

I am sharing a couple of her photos from her first experience, but if you are in a hurry, just skip forward to the slideshow to view all her actions captured by Mom L.

Hmmm…I can see that I need more paw whacks in the top

You see every times Katie paw whacks that schmousie running around the screen, she makes a random color splatter.

Hmmm… maybe just a touch down here will add to the interest of my color palette

Here is the entire art project in a short slide show.

And here is Katie’s final product. Isn’t it beautiful?

Katie got another box challenge

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well, Miss Katie found herself another box challenge. Not like the one at Christmas last year, but close.

Well HELLO Ms Box!!

Dad P bought new sneakers/trainers and left the box in the living room for us kitties to check out. Katie was on it like a termite on wood!!

I can at least sit up straight in it

Katie used multiple positions to insure that “this” box was approved as cat usable.

I must mark this box as MY box so’s TKS and Nana don’t invade

Then  came the ‘test driving’ positions.

Great! I can lay on my back with no toesies hanging over

Then another position…

Oh! I can squish my toesies into my tummy and no pressure

Oh my this is great…

I can go upside down and not fall out!!

Katie test drove this box like you can’t believe.

I claim this box as “just the right size” for me and only me!!

How do you do a test drive of you new boxes?? Let me hear in comments and photos please!!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
