Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Due to technical difficulty

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

This means our laptop and monitor stopped meowing to each other almost two weeks ago. Mom L has a ton of eyesight challenges  trying to create anything presentable just using her laptop screen. Everything is too itty bitty. A new monitor is on its way but not sure when it’s gonna show up at my front door.

I have so much to tell you all that I can hardly think where to begin. We have had such an active last six weeks what with our current foster house guest, biped house guests, Mom L’s injury, and so much rescue work going on, well…let me just say…I plenty of blog post topics to last me for a while!! MOL!

Thank you for understanding why I have not been posting regularly. In fact, I am pretty sure I have convinced Mom L to take some time off to get her head wrapped back around my blog. I’ll let you know this week when and for how long we will be taking a planned break.

 

I have a photo of me I thought you might enjoy cuz it shows off my green eyes. Hope that will help make up for being absent without telling you why.

The Kid Sage just couldn’t believe her fan club would wanna go missing out on getting a little sight of her recently enjoying a sun puddle we kind’a tussle over.

And I thought you would like a look at our rescue kitten house guest. Katie aka Miss Katie, is about 7 months old. She has already had a litter of kittens but looks like none survived. She is a rescue from an apartment hoarding situation Mom L and Dad P stumbled on about six weeks ago. She arrived horribly malnourished and terrified of every noise and human. But, Katie is not feral, just so scared. She never got to be a real kitten so we are workin’ hard to remind her of what that looks like. She is playing but still very scared and mostly doesn’t walk up right, just kind’a low to the ground.

More about her and her part in the apartment hoarding rescue we have been smothered with for some time.

Hope you enjoy the photos. I’ll get back to you as soon as we get our monitor!!

Here come the memes…and the memes keep marching along…

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Let’s get right to it…of course this means featuring ME!!

You know I am the total real deal when it comes to how well a carpet can assist a cat in  getting her/his play on…right??

And yes, I am still finding lots of time to play with Mom L and Dad P up and down my beloved carpeted stairs, even with my art-right-us!!

Now for a couple of memes from my community cat colony residents. Mom L was feeding them and captured these great seconds which make community cats just like any other cat!!

The two cats so enjoy dining together and they often intertwine their tails just before joining the dining table together.

The following silly mancat loves to show off his tummy tuck!!

All the cats seem to enjoy watching his antics after he dines.

Tell me what gave you the biggest smile on my Friday Memes today!!

Don’t Miss This Happy Tail Ending

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Do you remember my  blog post a week or so ago about darling Koko? Another “friendly” colony cat Mom L collected to set on the path to adoption. If you recall, he was returned and things were not easy for Koko after being ignored by his adopter for two months before they returned him to the shelter.

Well, Dad P and Mom L were visiting him every other day at Pet Food Express where he was moved to by the shelter. A great location for him but he still languished and remained in hiding. The staff are all cat savvy and expert adoption counselors, but they began to fear he might need to go back to the shelter as he didn’t appear to be making progress. But they agreed to keep him another week. Thank Ceiling Cat they did!! Slowly Koko began to stick his head out of his cubby hiding spot.

 

He moved closer to the opening and was now keeping his eye open, not shut tight to close out the world.

So the last time Mom L and Dad P saw Koko, they were visiting him as usual. But as they approached the enclosure where he and Gemma were housed, they thought their eyes were playing tricks on them. There was Koko, out of his hiding place, walking tall and proud across a bench in his enclosure!!! Mom L was so stunned she forgot to even take a photo.

Now just what managed to get Koko to gain confidence enough to stroll around his enclosure?? Go on, what do you think happened?

Come’on…just take my paw and let’s go home

Ok, I’ll tell you. We all feared that as more and more kittens were being moved from the shelter to the location where Gemma and Koko were that people would really ignore them. They are after all adults and black.

HAH!!

Here is who gave Koko his mojo back!! KITTENS!!!!

When the staff placed three kittens in the same enclosure with Koko and Gemma. Koko decided they needed a big brother to show them around! It was amazing! He had been out and about and even drew the attention of not one, not two but THREE potential adopters!

Mom L and Dad P went in to visit him and lo and behold, he PLAYED with a feather toy with Mom L! The video is only 17 seconds and worth the watch!

Koko even allowed Mom L to take him onto her lap and he didn’t try to leave! What a change.

I got you little feather!

Koko was adopted about two hours after Mom L and Dad P left him that day. A nice woman who knows cats fell in love with Koko and the staff did a thorough vetting of her before they all agreed that Koko had indeed found his forever home.

Please wish Koko well in his new home and life. I hope you enjoy learning about the colony cats we help with my Paw It Forward Project—Project Delta View Cats. Let me hear in comments if you wanna learn more about the colony and the other cats who have had successful adoptions.
