Only Two More Days! Paw It Forward Commentathon and Blog Hop



What an exciting couple of days this has been for me and The Kid Sage.  We are now over half way to spending Mom L and Dad P’s total donation amount…keep those comments coming to my Oct 1 blog post…click HERE…to transport directly to it,

The Kid Sage and I are biting our claws hoping I get more comments and more Paw It Forward Blog Hop posts…OR ELSE…the humans are going to get off not pawing over the whole $150 promised. MOUSES!!

Don’t forget…writing your own Paw It Forward Blog Post and joining the Blog Hop just adds to my donation amount.

I worked really hard getting my blog all dusted off and redecorated…and yes, The Kid Sage helped out a lot too.  I think we may just have come a bit closer during this effort…what do you think?

One month before Oct 1

One month before Oct 1

And then Sage started helping me with the flag to hang out front to let folks know I had something big about to happen…we worked like cats…we both just fell into bed exhausted…of course The Kid, being young and all, could not maintain consciousness so I had to give Mom L the late night coaching by myself…

Paw It Forward Commentathon and Blog Hop


pizap Ms Savvy Do

I hope you have noticed I have been doing some redecorating around my blog and my other social media presences.  And I am showing off my new digs with a Paw It Forward Commentathon and Blog Hop!



Google Plus

Face Book

Why the need to redecorate you ask???

I want to re-commit to serving as a voice for cats, dogs and other animals who do not have a voice as loud, nor a meow as strong, as all of you have graciously enabled me to possess.

The former subtitle to my blog “Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat” was too limiting, given all the things I have been doing for the last year or so.  When Mom L  suggested to me that my subtitle might limit how prospective followers see my blog…I did one of those *paw slap to forehead* moves…Whap!!  “I may be misleading!!!”  To help keep me focused, I have changed my subtitle to reflect what I want all readers to understand my purpose…”Making a Difference”.

Savannah’s Paw Tracks will focus on three areas…

  • Paw It Forward: Featuring projects dedicated to giving a voice to animals waiting for permanent homes and helping improve the lives of those animals who so desperately need us.


  • Real Rescue Stories: Because everyone needs to share in the joy of Happy Tails endings.


  • Savannah’s Progress: Chronicling my personal journey from an adult cat tossed away like someone’s trash to becoming a much loved feline family member. …including lessons in patience with The Kid Sage.


Humor and laughter inspire me to meow even louder for those who don’t have a voice. That’s especially true when it comes to social media. I’ll be first in line, helping to spread your message far and wide, when any of you have contests, events, parties and celebrations.

Here is a tour of my new blog design elements…

On the right side bar you will see THREE Badges.  Click on a badge and view a series of links to many of the posts I have written about whatever topic is noted on the badge.  Go on… click and check them out!

Across the top pull down menus you will find changes as well.

About: Updated to align with my mission and focus: A Former Shelter Cat Making a Difference
Bling: The awards I receive from furriends
Events & Adventures: under ‘Events’ find a slideshow of many of the contests and special events in which I participate; under ‘Adventures’ find links to International Cross Over Blog Adventures in which I have been included.
Go Shopping: A showcase for any of you who have Etsy shops or other businesses you want furriends to know about (send me links to include if you want)
OTRB: contains badges for furriends who have gone on to The Bridge and also includes the fur family members before me
Useful Information: animal rescue/welfare related information I think you will find meaningful

That’s it!!

Now for the FUN part!
