What a difference time can make

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Hey guys, how many of you remember our foster kitten named Andi? Mom L trapped her and her Mom Mandi last October 2017 where they were living at an Elk’s Lodge near my castle. Well Mom L received notice from my cat Vet that Andi’s annual checkup is due next month! That made us all remember sweet Andi and miss her all over again.

Thanks to Face Book, Mom L was able to find Andi’s new Mom and ask for an update. Here you go—Andi one year later!!!

She is just as cute as ever and still a bit shy but always progressing and loved very much by her family.

I am learning in my own recovery from trauma that time and patience make such a difference. Now I can see that happening with our current foster kitten, Katie. She is about eight to nine months old and recovering from a traumatic early kittenhood including being a mom cat at age five months!! We have also learned that she has a permanent limp, likely due to a trauma at birth which has made one of her front elbows not function quite right.

BUT—Katie is progressing lots with the four months we have had her and with love and patience. Katie adores being brushed and loves having her full tummy rubbed and brushed. She throws herself down and stretches out from the tip of her front paws to the tip of her hind paws!

She flips over when she expects some more attention and she always gets it!

More please!!

And last but far from least, a look at what  the passing of a few weeks can mean to some new born kittens Mom L and a pal rescued using the kittens as bait for the mom cat.

Remember how tiny they were when reunited with their mom?

Just take a look at them now! You can see five of the six kittens in the first photo. They are all so much like their beautiful Russian Blue mom cat. Only one gray tabby and the others are like mom.

And here is the one cute tuxedo kitten.

They will start being weaned soon. Mom cat will be spayed and released in her favorite neighborhood as she has shown she is very much a feral cat. But all the kittens will be going to adoptions in another four to six weeks.

So I say APAWS APAWS for how much progress can be made when we give rescue kitties some time, love and patience. Don’t you agree?

Meaningful, joyful…Friday Memes

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

It’s been a scramble around here to get my post ready for my readers…those who are still hangin’ in with me…and I appreciate each and every one of you!!  I know I have been one absent kitty from my blog. But hey?! When we cats are workin’ hard to give do paws on paws rescue work, well, it gets crazy pants busy…na’mean?

So for my first meme, I asked one of the female, not spayed kitties who had a litter at about seven months old to do my first meme.

What a cutie! She is now safe back at the property where we trapped her and where she is being fed very well!

Now let me bring on my UK lady pal none other than Miss Erin, the Cat Princess.

Aiiieeee!! Erin??!! What the heck does that “chop lickin'” mean???

And I made this last meme just for me and Mom L. And I want all my readers to know how deep our connection is.

Thanks for coming around to visit. Please if you have a moment, let me know in memes if you still want me to keep them comin’.

Friday Memes—short and tantalizing!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well I really wanna know what my readers think about the REAL meaning behind my memes today. Me and TKS have a message to send  about something and to someones. What do ya think that message is and who do ya think we are sending it to?

Seriously, given my last post on Monday and now our memes—I bet’cha no one can even come close to what message we are sending and to whom about what. Go on, give it a try and let me hear your best guesses in comments.

And of course TKS followed my plea!

What’d’ya think is goin’ on in my castle?

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
