Doesn’t Every Cat Have One?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Sometimes my Mom L makes me wanna just slap my paw to my forehead in disbelief. Do you ever feel that way about your humans?

So here’s one of my special peeves. Now let me ask all of my readers today—Do all of you make sure your human makes you a very nice cozy tent on the bed you share with them once they get outta your bed? SEE!! I knew it!! All of you shook your heads YES! I keep telling Mom L I most certainly am not the “only” cat that gets a tent made for me to snuggle in once she gets outta our bed. Why I learned all about how these tents get built and how special they are from my angel mentor Sammy, from One Two Spoiled Cats.

I don’t much care if I get my tent made in the Summer, but buddy it better get made and fast when the temps start to drop and the days get short and those nights get longer. Yes sirree!!

In fact, I am now so confident I never even leave the bed while Mom L is making my tent. I used to dash off because all her flappin’ and shakin’ of those bed covers and folding those blankets for me was just too much commotion. But now, I have to almost be made to move my body to give her space to make my tent! How’s that for progress? Even after SEVEN, yes SEVEN whole years with my Mom L and Dad P, I am still making progress on getting past my earlier traumas before picking them as my Mom and Dad.

What’d’ya mean? Spoiled?

So there you have it. I am not spoiled. I just like to snoopervise sometimes to make sure Mom L makes my tent just the way I like it.

Get a move on Mom L, you’re wasting daylight!

It takes a lot of skill to make my tent just right and sometimes I have to hang around close so I can do some building inspection.

No. I don’t want that blankie for my base. I want the one with stars from Alfie.

Mom L gets a bit lax when it comes to making the selection for the blanket that goes down first and that’s important because it’s the one that I lay on for cat’s sake!

Ok, ok, I’ll move over a bit to give you room to make it right.

She makes such a fuss about trying to get all the wrinkles out of the bed cover. Humans don’t get it that we cats never mind a wrinkle or two, makes it more cozy, don’t ya think?

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Luvluvluv Alfie’s blankie.

I got so excited about Alfie’s blankie I almost tried to zip under it!! MOL! Mom L had to make me wait until she got the rest of the tent structure in place.

Slurp…now this is gonna be a really great tent.

It continues to surprise Mom L and Dad P how casual I have become about all the motion that goes into making my tent. Just a year ago I would have been downstairs already!

Tuck in this corner better please

I have to be careful that the corners are tight otherwise TKS tries to find a way to get under part of my tent. And that doesn’t make me a happy kitty at all.

Yep. Nice tight corner, that’s the way I like it

Before Mom L can even get my favorite plaid blanket tent top set up I am already eager to check out my tent for the day.

Sweet! This is one of your better efforts Mom L

She leaves me a bit of a rear window in case I wanna check out what’s going on out on the water. I like to watch the boats going in and out of our channel.

Yikes! That boat is a big one!

So here I am, ready for my morning tent nap. Nice and cozy just like all us cats like our tents.

Isn’t this just the best!?

No you guys describe for me in comments how your humans make your tent. I bet’cha you have nifty ones too!

Me and The Kid Sage

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I figured it was about time for you to see some recent action from me and TKS. You see, we DO have a life outside Mom L and Dad P doin’ this whole community cat rescue thingy. Seriously, we truly do. Check out our recent activities.

I still have the best ever play sessions with Mom L on my own personal carpeted two flights of stairs. I can’t really get up on any of my cat towers anymore ‘cuz of my arty-right-us in both my knees. Bummer, total bummer I can tell you for sure. But, Mom L and Dad P made sure I got carpet on the stairs and play like a crazy pants kitty almost every day and night!

Check out my whiskers in their forward hunting position

You can see I still have it with my huntress skills just by how my whiskers are positioned for that mighty paw whap to kill that peacock feather.

And then I still have my amazing “Savannah stare” which Mom L always tries to capture just purrfect.

Look into my eyes and go pour more kibble snacks

As for The Kid Sage, aka, TKS…she has found pure total kitty cat pleasure when Dad P decided to start sitting on the bed next to Mom L rather than in his chair in the morning TV news and electronic paper viewing time. TKS is over the moon having Dad P love her up every morning.

Zzzzzzzz….total bliss

Of course she just had to show off and let Mom L grab a “cheese-cake” shot too!!

Look into my eyes and make Savvy get off the bed

There you have it. That’s what’s happening at my castle currently. What’s goin’ on at yours? Let me hear in comments if you have a moment.

Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Oh my cat! Do I have some news for today and your my readers will be the very first to learn all about the last 3 days of happenings right here on my blog post!

Well it finally happened. I have progressed in my search for REAL SELF once again. I am now not just allowing, but INVITING Mom L to brush, yes I said brush, my tummy furs!

ahhhh…just the purrfect amount of pressure

Come on my pals, lemme hear a loud round of APAWS! for my progress—even thought I have been with Mom L and Dad P for six and one half years, I still have some growin’ room left!

Next up is a peek at some of the lovely kitties who were trapped by humane traps so they could come to the SNIP (Spay, Neuter Impact Program) clinic yesterday. Naturally Mom L and Dad P were working their stations and shifts to help about eighty community cats/kittens get their “Get Outta Jail Free” cards by gettin’ those gonads snipped off and those baby makin’ parts removed. None of these kitties will ever be helpin’ the community cat population grow in my county.

Truth be known, there were several wee kittens like the orange and white little guy in the photos above that were trapped at a site where there were about three to four litters found. All but one wee kitten was friendly and all will be moved through adoption paths, not returned to the site.

And finally the answer to why TKS and I created the Friday Memes I posted last Friday. You are all correct—Mom L and Dad P have carted home yet another scrawny, loud screechy meowed young’in! Can’t they just stop?

I mean when did I ever agree to share my castle even with TKS and don’t you think I have graciously allowed her to remain? But seriously—this haulin’ in every little or grown up kitty is gettin’ way outta paw.

And yet, I do Know that this six month or so old kitten has already had one litter and likely all died; but that is for another blog post. Did you notice her extra long whisker? Her side whisker may be even longer than mine and she is still so young. Then there are her soft green eyes. And yes this little girl is related to the reason my blog posts have been short. You see it takes me a while to create a series of very important posts and then I have to submit them to Mom L’s brain for editing and her brain as we all know is far more limited than mine. So we are both working in over time to get this series put together. And yes, the title will likely stick—Hoarding or Overwhelmed?

Have a great week.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
