Friday Smiles

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

You are gonna like the memes I made JUST for you my readers!! Are you ready to get your smiles going??

Yeah, well TKS is not happy that our foster kitty, Ms. Kit Katie is trying to slip onto the side of the bed TKS shares with Dad P in our morning coffee and cat treat time. TKS can be such a brat!

Wait!! What??? Why no one can possibly accuse me of such behavior—ahem—right Mom L??? (silence of crickets)

Well, let’s just move along, ok?

Well for me this is a “no brainer”!! I like my toesies in!! Mom L keeps her under those covers like she thinks they are made of gold!!

Kit Katie is getting might tired of showing me and TKS her tummy as she tries to win us over. Mom L and Dad P don’t know what to do for Kit Katie, but they know she needs a more interactive home than what we can all provide. Please help us share Kit Katie across the whole of Blogville.

Here is a new badge for our precious foster kitty Katie.

Friday Memes From the Young’uns

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well I just had to let the two young’uns in my castle take over the memes today. They really are something to watch. Why I believe Kit Katie may have TKS buffaloed. I put their interaction today into a slideshow with captions for your Friday smiles!

So do you guys think Kit Katie has TKS on her tippy toes? Your reactions in comments please.

And of course our Kit Katie castle guest had to have one of her very own. In fact, this meme cost Mom L to lose at least one or more of her own Kitty Nine Lives.

Yup, all of us girls have now given Mom L her very own special heart attack, gasp of breath experience by walking on the wild side of the banister.

So what do you think TKS was watching that made her rivet her eyes on it? Come on , give me your best guess in comments and I promise Mom L will reveal what TKS was watching like it was a horror show!!!

PeeEss…please be sure to grab Kit Katie’s badge and help us find her the special forever castle she so deserves. She goes in for an X-ray of her front right leg to learn why she has a limp. Mom L and Dad P believe that one front leg may be shorter than the other. No matter, nothing holds Kit Katie back!!

 

Andi the Feral Kitten: A Happy Tails Ending

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

first introduced you to Andi , our feral foster kitten, in late November 2017. (remember in all the gallery photos, drag your mousie after you have dedded it over each photo to view captions)

Andi was barely three months old and trapping her and her Mom cat, we named Mandi, was Mom L and Dad P’s first ever cat trap work. Mom L and I shared our news about deciding to keep Andi to foster and socialize her on December 4, 2017 . Her first week living in Mom L’s office was a shock for her. She did allow Mom L to touch her and eventually Mom L started to pick her up. Surprisingly, sweet Andi never did more than give a tiny little hiss. She never clawed, scratched, growled.

If you have followed Andi’s story, then you know that Dad P and Mom L had to release Andi’s mom cat, Mandi, back to the place where she was raising Andi. Sadly mom cat Mandi wasn’t ready just yet to be socialized. BUT—her feeder is workin’ on her as I type this Happy Tails Ending story!!

But I digressed, let me get back to Andi’s amazing story. Little Andi began to thrive and learn to trust human touch. Eventually Mom L and Dad P moved her to a larger enclosure where she could start to learn how to play. Remember, she was an only kitten and she had never played with any other kitty but her mom. And she was really too young to have begun to learn to stalk her “prey” so she didn’t know what to do with the wand toy schmousie at first.

Wait! What? You want ME to touch that schmousie???

The above pose is a classic Andi pose as she gets ready to play with anything. She always raised her right paw before she reached out to paw whap whatever she was playing with. There are other wonderful poses, special Andi poses that we all came to look for with anticipated joy and pleasure. Mom L’s camera loved working with Andi.

Finally the day arrived when we thought is was for Andi’s best interest to take her to my former kitty shelter, Kitty Corner. We knew that Miss Chrissy would make sure Andi was adopted by the bestest fit family ever—just like she did for me when Mom L and Dad P adopted me in 2012!

It was tough at first for Andi. Remember she had not grown up with any siblings and the only humans she knew were Mom L and Dad P. She spent much of her first days at Kitty Corner in a special cubby on a cat tower made cozy with a special brand new blankie Mr. Terry brought in for her. Mr. Terry is a very special man who luvluvluvs cats just like Dad P.

I’m scared…can I just go back home purrlease?

Dad P and Mom L visited Andi every day trying to help her learn how to play in such a large open space as Kitty Corner. This was the largest room she had ever been in. Besides, remember Andi didn’t ever know any other cat but her mom cat. So now she had seven to ten other cats aged seven months to over five years housed with her.

But Andi being Andi, she started to adjust with Mom L and Dad P’s help. She responded to her favorite wand toy. That schmousie!!

Oh!! My schmousie followed me here!!

And then just two days later Dad P and Mom L saw with their very own eyes our little teensy Andi climb to the tippy top of a tall cat tower and then—she jumped to another one!!! Aiiiieeee! So brave and so confident she was becoming!

And then the day arrived when our precious beloved little Andi was discovered by a young family. (human faces disguised to protect family’s privacy)

They arrived to adopt a seven month old kitten named Joey, but then through encouragement from the Kitty Corner staff, they considered adopting another kitty so Joey would have a play pal.

Now Joey and our Andi had never met, but everyone figured “heck, they are youngsters” so no problem, right? Well Andi was more willing to give their relationship a try than Joey was at first. However it seems like they are adjusting to each other.

Mom L and Dad P are relieved that the family’s son, the oldest, at age thirteen has chosen to be Andi’s champion and protector and bestest ever pal!!

They look good together, don’t ya think??

Now Andi and Joey will always be inside only cats, but just check out how much this family luvluvluvs animals of all species!

Andi’s human, Mr. Austin, asked if his bedroom could be Andi’s special “alone time/safe zone” room and guess what? Andi agreed wholeheartedly! She started snoozing with Mr. Austin immediately and now his bed is her bed!!

Please give our precious Andi a very special round of APAWS! for finding her forever family.

Forever our special feral foster heart kitten—our Andi!
