Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Do you know what the future will bring?

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I never ever thought my future would hold more than me, Mom and Dad. And then, because I bonded so closely with Mom L, Dad P really missed having a cat that was close to him. This is me when I was dropped at the night drop box at our county animal shelter in 2010.

My Intake Photo: Kill Shelter

ENTER—TKS aka The Kid Sage aka Sage. I had a really tough time accepting Sage. But Mom L and Dad P’s patience got me through that adjustment. Sage came along about twenty months after I made myself comfy in my new forever castle.

Contemplating Zen

Sage and I have become good furriends. I know she always wanted to snuggle, but my previous traumas before coming to my forever castle made me a very hesitant to trust kitty. Na’mean??

And then, as Mom L and Dad P became involved in community cat rescue in 2017, they happened upon a desperate five month old kitten who was traumatized in a hoarder’s home.

ENTER—Katie aka KK aka Kit Katie. Katie came to my castle in the summer of 2018, she was adopted twice and returned both times because she was “too shy”.

Mom L and Dad P said forget that crap!! This kitteh is ours!! And Katie has become such a treasure in my forever castle!

Our concern has been that sweet Katie is only three years old, and she is starting to sleep more than she used to play. I am now—ahem!—a sixteen year old lady cat and TKS is a nine year old gal. Neither of us has the energy to keep Katie playing  and I have to admit, I am also now deaf so’s I can’t even hear her calling to me to play.

ENTER—you decide if this entry may be in my future. I am yet not convinced, but there are possibilities. This was taken in my our master bedroom during afternoon siesta time. Notice any introoders?

REALLY!! Now this is happening!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

My castle is ever changing. Does yours do that too? I really must know if I am the only senior kitty who is forced invites castle guests. I do know there are many others like me, who have been abandoned on the cold streets without the love and care of humans. But seriously, do they ALL have to show up on my castle doorstep??!! I mean, who gave this kitten permission to simply wander around my WHOLE castle???

Why I was shocked!!

You can just see the amazement on my face, right? Here I am , lounging on my plush living room area rug, chillin’ before Dad P bring me my dinner, room temperature as I prefer, of course. And what do I see flash past me??? Some other happy go lucky kitten! And she is tall!!

And there she is, first in my our master bedroom, just takin’ her time to check out my our TV controls. I betcha she changed my favorite channels!! And she even spread all her smells on TKS’s favorite cat tree at the tippy top sanctuary!!

Then she just sashays down stairs to the shock of Katie and Sage!!!

Well I can secretly tell you that Katie has been slowly submitting to the playfulness of this introoder six month old kitten. SHOCK!! But there you have it. And NO!!! She is NOT—please Ceiling Cat let this be true—going to stay!!!

Please put all paws together and pray for me and my sanity that this long legged rambunctious teenager finds her  forever home ASAP!!

Video is worth a thousand meows

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Mom L was bizzy bizzy today; taking our three current castle introoders guests to their first ever adoption day. So I had to dictate a very short blog post just to get her to help me show up on Monday. So’s I created a very short little video/slideshow of two of our adult park colony cats showing us all what love and tenderness looks like.

Please meet Prince, the handsome fellow with the white chest and white paws and his new very best furriend, Florence. They have become best buddies over the past year. They demonstrate the gentle and kind compassionate bond many colony cats find with other colony members.

Sweet Florence was our park colony senior cat Garfield’s closest furriend and feline caretaker. Florence, from the Nightingale family, would go up the hill where Garfield lived every late afternoon to make sure he came down for his special wet food and to help him get there without a paw slip.

Humane management of abandoned community cat colonies is the BEST!!

Let me know in comments if you are able to help any abandoned community cat colonies in your area and what you do!! Photos please!
