The Story: Sunday Selfie Mystery Guest

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have always wanted to say this even though there probably aren’t any more news presses that work these days—

I am certain you all remember my blog post about the mom cat and her kitten who are our first successful cat trap effort. Well, mom cat aka Mandi and her kitten aka Boogie, have been living for a week in my our office, in those luxurious cages I shared last week.

Boogie clearly showed signs of being open to human touch and interaction.

So we are already set up for her to move to Kitty Corner once Mom L and Dad P have her more socialized. Right now they are teaching her how to play with humans. More on that next week, so stay tuned.

It broke Dad P and Mom L’s hearts, but we had to release Mandi back to her home at the lodge where she was trapped. After a week, she still had little interest in human interaction. But, there is still hope for Mandi. Her feeder, Miss Kandi, is working with her to try to get her to allow pets. At least Mandi won’t ever have more kittens to care for as she is about five years old. She needs to enjoy her life without kittens to care for.

Mandi was very much ready to go home too.

She clearly knew exactly where she was once she was released. Please watch this eleven second video. You can see that Mandi knew she was home the way she darts behind that wooden pallet, her refuge for over a year or more.


Miss Kandi continues to feed Mandi and we hope their bond will continue to grow so that we may once again offer Mandi the opportunity of being adopted into a caring home.

The same day that Mom L and Miss Kandi released mom cat Mandi, I also had Mom L taking care of another adult abandoned cat on the opposite street corner. Miss Kandi has named him Pumpkin! And that fits for sure!!!

Pumpkin is fortunate that my former cat, Vet Dr. Josie, was willing to travel to Pumpkin’s Corner and administer his rabies, FVRCP and flea treatment— right on the street corner he calls home! And that is how Dr. Josie rolls—anything for the kitties!!

Pumpkin needed those vaccinations to be able to allow Mom L to take him to our public animal shelter where he well go on temporary “Owner Surrender” status to learn if he can tolerate being in the shelter while he waits for an adopter. Mom L can spring him loose in three days if he doesn’t adjust well. Pumpkin is so friendly, loves pets, purrs, can be picked up—he just needs a chance at a new home. You see, his former “family” abandoned him on that street corner when they moved from the apartment complex. He is likely a senior cat.

So there was one more Paw It Forward Project over the weekend. Miss Kandi had a new male kitty to join her little 6 pack over where she works. His name is Sweet Pea and he was not neutered. So Mom L and Dad P got him into the new cat clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats just this morning.

I really want to hear from any readers about what you think of my latest Paw It Forward Projects. I had Dad P and Mom L working on not one, not two, not three but FOUR projects this last ten day. How do you think we are doing so far???

Foster Kittens Update: Going, going, GONE!!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I am totally sure you all remember those three pesky cute foster kittens we had, right?

Well I have spent a ton of time asking Ceiling Cat to please help those kittens break outta my former shelter Kitty Corner. Now you know I think Kitty Corner is the best place for any cat to be if it’s lookin’ for a forever family. Heck, I may have waited a whole year, but look what a great family I found! Nonetheless, a shelter is a shelter and not a true home, right?

I cannot keep you in suspense. Chloe and Rocky went to a home together. As soon as the man and woman entered their room at Kitty Corner, Rocky and Chloe moved in on them! They loved their ankles, asked to be pet and in general—made the humans into a bowl of mush! They so wrapped them around their little paws those humans never had a chance!!

Interestingly, Jessie stayed in his cubbie and outta sight. What’s up with that?? Right? More on this later.

So off go Chloe and Rocky together to their delightful forever home.

Chloe

Rocky

And now for the Happy Tail Ending for precious Jessie. On the very same day, after Jessie rejected first the man and woman who adopted Chloe and Rocky, and then he rejected the next couple, an man and woman with their twenty + year old son—Jessie would not respond at all when the two men tried so very hard to make friends with Jessie. He did love on the woman’s ankles and allow her to give him some pets. But clearly, he wasn’t taken to the two men. So this family moved on to adopt another cat. Mom L and Dad P worried that Jessie was left alone.

BUT—a very nice young woman came in just an hour or so later, and Jessie was ALL OVER HER!!! Jessie finally picked out his forever human!!

Same day, within three hours—all three of our foster kittens were off to their forever homes! How much better does that get??

Jessie

Our three now “former” fosters all together.

Thank you all for caring about our three kitties.

Do You Luv Sun Puddles Like Me?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I am hav’in a heck of a time keeping up with my travelin’ sun puddles. How about you? Are you in luv with your sun puddles like me? I’d go just about anywhere just to get a good sun puddle nap. Our last rental home hardly had sun puddles at all. But by golly I found this one, remember? And I had to climb through Mom L’s computer cables and then behind our printer stand to get this little spot of sun that shined on a narrow window sill for about an hour in the Spring and Summer.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Now I have so many easy peasey places to have sun puddle naps, but I am chasin’ around the house as Miss Sun moves about in the sky with the seasons. I’ve even been known to get to my sun puddle spot BEFORE Miss Sun gets there!

Nope, the sun hasn’t shown up just yet, but she will

Once she shows up, Nanuk and I have a wonderful time basking in the glory of her warmth.

ahhhh—this is the life, right Nanuk?

But like always, somebody always shows up to disturb our hours of bliss.

Who invited you? There is only enough room here for us.

Sometimes I like to just stretch out so’s my whole body gets the heat treatment.

Top half first, then I’ll flip to get the bottom half.

Other times I like to let Miss Sun know how much I am enjoying her and I kind’a wave at her to let her.

Hey Miss Sun!! Can you see me? Do you know I luv you?

Again, somebody has to show up and intrude on my joyful greetings.

Not you again! How many times do I have to say “move on”??

And of course, I have now found Miss Sun is shining her lovely warm heat on the day bed in Dad P’s office. So I am now claiming that spot all for myself.

Zzzzzzzzz

Now you tell me, are you chasing sun puddles with this new time adjustment and whatnot? Miss Sun sure does make it a challenge when she starts reacting all crazy like with the changes in the seasons too.
