Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

And the beat goes on…


Yep, that’s about all that’s goin’ on around my castle these days. Kit Katie, aka KK, is just keeping up on her tempo to try to win me over.

Just tidying my white paws Your Highness Savannah

KK continued to hang out close to where I prefer to take my long morning nap. She even tried to take “getting closer” just one paw forward from pretending to clean her little delicate white paw…harrummppfff!!

There she goes with her “show me her tummy” routine…sheesh!!

Good news for KK is that I did not give her a smacky paw this morning. I’m saving up for when she isn’t being caught on camera by Mom L being so “cute and submissive”. EERRRRGGHH!!

So that’s the “beat” in my castle. What’s the “beat” in yours this week?

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Mom L and Dad P have been working for like a year to get our city to build and install feeding stations at an abandoned cat colony that exists in a city park really close to our current and final castle. Our city had these built by Future Build, a job training non-profit program in our city.

I have some photos that will show you the design, adapted from Project Bay Cats and where a couple have been installed. We now have four in total. Now if Mom L and Dad P and the primary colony feeders for the last thirteen years can get the 27 cats to actually “eat” at these stations!!! MOL!!!

If any of you have suggestions about how to move colony cats to a new feeding area, we are all ears!!!


There’s another dare devil in my castle!


Hey guys, do you remember that blog post I did about TKS and what an incredible dare devil she is in our newer home? Well I included a link to that post so go on, take a couple of secs to head over and refresh your memories. *tappit, tap, tap, tappity, tap, tap* All done?

Great! Now here is the latest FYI (for your information) comin’ from my castle. There is ANOTHER, yes, ANOTHER dare devil in my castle.

Oh my cat! I never knew there was a view on the other side of this litter box

What’s that sound? Did I hear some squeaking down the hall?

Is TKS making silly noises down the hall?

Nope. Sounds like it must be coming from down below. Who knew there was this incredible view out to the back garden from up here on this end of the hall? There!! I heard it again!! A sort’a high pitched squeal almost. You know, like the kind you hear when a biped kid is learning its high notes. Whatever can that be?

Wow! I wonder if I can make the jump from up here to the landing?

Ok! Now that squeaking, squealing sound is louder and really annoying!! Wait!! It can’t be Mom L, can it? She’s sitting there in Dad P’s chair watching me having all this fun. Those noises can’t be coming from her, can they? Why would she ever make noises like that?

What’cha doin’ Mom L? Why is your face so pale?

Yep, Mom L finally confessed that she was doin’ all she could do to not shriek, scream and dial 911 when she saw me, with my limpy bad hind knees walking outside the upstairs banister like TKS does all the time. Now Mom L doesn’t like it when TKS does it either, but I guess watchin’ me was more than she could take.

Silly Mom L! She told me she had a plan to grab the fleece blankie on her lap and dash under me so’s she could break my fall!! AS IF!!! Why I am a cat! I wasn’t gonna fall!

What have you done lately to keep your human on their watch out??


Senior style cat tree!


Most of my long time readers know that I kind’a suffer from arty-right-us in both my knees. This means I no longer can get up on my original cat tree, Dad P bought just special for me, when he and Mom L brought me to my forever castle.

You can see “some kitty” now lives on my former fave cat tree. Bummer indeed.

BUT!! WAIT!! Even in our senior years we cats can be very creative. Not only did I insist that Mom L and Dad P put carpet on our new and last home’s set of stairs, I insisted that I get nice carpeted short steps for me to use to get on the couch with Mom L and also up on our bed too.

Well just guess—go on—guess??!! What game did I create to use my short stairs to make up for not having the ability to get up on my fave cat tree???

YES!! You guessed right!! I made my short stairs into my NEW, BETTER IMPROVED CAT TREE FOR SENIORS!!!

See? I can still fit in between the steps.

Mom L?? Where the heck is my favorite peacock feather?

Good grief!! How long does a senior cat have to wait for play time??

Here we go!! I knew Mom L would get my concept. Super!

I do back flips, front flips and upside down flips on just three steps. AWESOME SAUCE!!!

What do you think of my new concept Cat Tree For Seniors?????
