My Moves Just Keep Goin’!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Last I reported on my continuing love of playing was last October I think?  I still find time to play with Mom L and she always stops whatever she is doing if I look like I am in the mood for some silliness!!

All I have to do is through myself down at the base of my carpeted steps; I use them to get on the couch cuz’ my arty-right-us makes it tough for me to jump up anymore. Anywho, Mom L knows that is my invite for a play session!

I sometimes turn myself inside out and upside down going after my peacock fevver! My BFGF Cathy Keisha put me onto peacock fevvers when I first arrived at my castle and I have never refused to play with one ever since.

You can check out some of my moves on this itty bitty short video!

Part Two: Gigi’s Journey—Socialization and playing

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

If you missed my Part One of Gigi’s Journey, be sure to visit my last post about her to truly understand just how far this kitty girl has come. And always remember, she is doing this at about AGE EIGHT YEARS OLD!!!

As you know from Part One, cutie pie Gigi wanted human pets from the very beginning. However, Mom L and Dad P did acquire a whole bunch of “paw whack” punctures over her three months in my castle as she became more and more accepting of being inside. The camera loves taking her photos!! We used some “kitty yogurt” treats early on to entice her to come close to the human’s hands.

Unfortunately, we learned that these treats, like four tubes a day, gave her the worst gas and diarrhea!! MOL!! So those treats were sent away. But by then, Gigi was already learning that her biggest treat of all was to have tons of PLAY TIME!!

She first played while caged, then she showed how much she LOVES my peacock feathers. And then, she learned to RUN after the wand toys!!  Thanks to my BFGF Cathy Keisha, I learned that absolutely no kitty, feral, semi-feral or what—will refuse that peacock feather!!!

Gigi so loved her cardboard lounge. She used it for scratching and for allowing human pets. She slept in it. It was her safety zone. Trust me, I made sure Mom L sent that with her when she moved to her forever home!

Next we needed to learn if Gigi was open to being with other cats. As you know, she was very comfy with Katie, another girl.

Sharing girl secrets!

but how would she do with a male adult cat??? We brought in an adult male kitty that is searching for his furrever home as a check point to learn if Gigi was gonna be OK with an adult male and to learn if the male kitty was OK with an adult female. All part of socializing abandoned adult kitties.

Big Boy let her sniff and then turned his back!! MOL

This Big Boy chatted a bit with Gigi then he just turned his back and took a nap!! And Gigi went back to her favorite place in the cat tower in front of the window.

By now, Gigi is ready to make her transition to her furrever home with Spitty’s human, Miss Mary. Mom L took some last minute photos to capture Gigi’s wonderful long white whiskers.

And you know all the rest because Gigi started her very own blog!!

So what have you guys all been up to lately??

Katie’s Toofie Fairy Gifts

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well, it finally happened. Our little Katie aka KK had to have her remaining 12 toofies pulled. She only has a couple toofies left in front. She spent about four days in a recovery cage in Dad P’s office so’s we could give her pain meds and antibiotics. Her mouth was so sore. KK was very sleepy from the medication so she wasn’t very eager to leave her nice soft beddie. I loaned her my Alfie Bed from my OTRB buddy Alfie of Molly and Alfie fame. Dad P and Mom L picked her up and loved several times a day.

Finally the day arrived when KK could leave her recovery cage. Sage was not at all helpful and welcoming. But KK simply didn’t pay her much attention. Notice that she does check into Mom L’s office where our foster Gigi is living. KK wanted to make sure Gigi was doing OK.

Not long after Katie’s dental, a package arrived for her. Miss Ellen, from 15 and Meowing, sent her some hand crocheted new soft toys!! Mom L dipped them liberally in some pawerful new Meowijuana nip that has Silvervine in it too. Sage found the first one Mom L put on the floor.

Katie found the orange fishie toy right after and she fell in luvluvluv!!

Miss Ellen sent four toys, two fishies and a two balls. Sadly one of those fishies must have jumped into the delta water behind my home and swam away. I couldn’t find him when I set up the photo shoot of the toys.

We are all still having a fun time with Miss Ellen’s Toofie Fairy toys she made for little KK. Does the toofie fairy ever visit you if you have a toof pulled?
