How’s Your Grooming Going?


“A groomin’ we will go, a groomin’ we will go—meowie ho! A zowie go—a groomin’ we will go!”

Oh hey guys, you caught me right in the  middle of my fave part of my day. I was just headin’ over to my groomin’ tool after my dinner.

ahhh—time for some fur cleaning

I don’t know about all of you, but sometimes Mom L doesn’t have time to give me a little assist with my fur grooming so I have a purrsonal groomin’ assistant who stands in for her. Why don’t you come along and check out Ms. Groomer with me?

Come on along to meet Ms. Groomer

Ooops—sorry you had to see Dad P’s gym shoes. Just ignore them and follow along.

There you are Ms. Groomer! How’s your evening going?

Ms. Groomer and I became like best buddies after about year from when she first became a part of my castle staff. In all honesty, I must admit that TKS was the first to make use of her superior services. But now, well we both enjoy her attention to detail. I always greet her with a soft touch of my chin furs.

ahhh…thanks for the chin scritch…I needed that

She is so accommodating and very flexible on her hours of availability.

What’s that? Oh why thank you for being willing to stay late just for me

Ms. Groomer has a very solid foundation so that no matter how hard I push her, she just pushes right back which gives me the best ever chin, neck and back scritches ever!

ummmm….ahhh…nice neck scritches

I like to take my time to move through her strong stiff fingers to get the max outta my fur grooming.

Give a bit more pressure on the upper back, ok?

Ms. Groomer is so understanding. She always knows just where to add the best pressure. I can confess, I probably leave about a kabillion pieces for my furs on her strong fingers every day. Why Mom L has to clean her brushie fingers once a week at least!

Alright, I’m moving on through for the lower back furs

And there you have it. My Ms. Groomer is the bestest groomin’ pal I could have. Never as good as Mom L or Dad P with my fave hand held devices. But, when a kitty needs a groomin’ right after dinner, Ms. Groomer is my groomin’ tool of choice.

What’s your fave groomin’ tool if your humans are not around to give you a good brush??



A Detente in My Castle


My first question, how many  times a week do you guys have a detente in your multiple animal castle? As for me, I have to have this ‘detente’ situation more than I want with TKS.

Today’s detente started with unmade bed. Mom L wanting a ‘cat nap’

As you can see, I was definitely Queen of the King size bed. TKS was not happy to be on the floor level stuck on the tossed aside electric blankie.  Purrsonally, I say phhfftt to her disappointment!

I am Queen of this King size bed. Tuff luck TKS

TKS was less than pleased, but then as I said before, that is her “tuff luck”!

Why can’ t I come up and join you Savvy?

Ok, ok, I know she has cute golden eyes and such a sweet face. BUT—I was HERE first!!

Ok kid, I get it that you wanna be “me”—not happening!

Finally TKS made the right move and chose to settle in elsewhere.

I have no choice. I must hold my ground and remain in the master bedroom!

You know this is her fall back position, right??

I am near the master bed, and no one can see me

Then Mom L arrived with her special blankie, spread it on the unmade bed. Guess who took advantage as fast as a house panther can be??

Sweet !! Now I am ON THE TOP!!

What can I say—I held my ground and let TKS have her day as the Top Cat!

I WON!!!

Do you ever have a detente moment in your multiple animal castle??? Let me know how you handle it in comments. I sure could use some advice!!






It’s that special day in the year when Mom L decides I need to “dress up”. Seeing as how I don’t do that in reality, she has to make up some silly virtual “Savvy in holiday spirit” image. Harrummppfff I say, but here it is.

Using my bestest purrs to all my pals to wish them a bright love filled Christmas

From my castle to yours, I truly do hope all my readers, humans and fur pals, have a day filled with love, laughter and yummy noms!

The last half of this year has been filled with moving into our new permanent home and then finding several kitties that needed my help. You can see four of the kittens I have helped to get spayed, neutered and adopted. They were all born to community cat moms. The sweet girl in the far left is still with me unfortunately happily waiting to get some more socialization. After this week she will be moved to Kitty Corner, my former rescue home, where I just know she will soon fly out the door with her new family.

So, happy holiday from me, The Kid Sage, Mom L and Dad P.

COMMENT OFF! Go enjoy your special day purrlease!
