Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Lots of stuff going on around my castle since last Monday. Some of ordinary like me hissing a The Kid Sage and her tryin’ to get a whiffy of my butt, etc.  You all know how that goes, right??

Anywho…I have had my own moments of getting older start to show up. Mom L caught me comin’ down the stairs just as I staggered and fell on my left hip. My left knee is pretty bad with that arty-right-us stuff. Can any of you relate???

Nonetheless, I can still play on my carpeted stairs and I am developing my own personalized work out on my couch stairs too. Just give me a shout out if you want my new Savannah’s Short Step Workout video.

After a work out like that I need some time to just chill out, meditate and enter my own personalize “Zen” zone.

Zen cat

The Zen state is described as “the state of “no-mindness”. That is, a mind not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion and thus open to everything.”

Seriously, what cat can’t relate to THAT notion!!???? Let me know in comments how you get into your own personal ” Zen Zone”.

And this last week has seen some changes in The Kid Sage. She is succumbing to the wiles of our “foster” kid Kit Katie. Yes, yes…I know it is unbelievable but I have actually witnessed them doing “thundering head of elephants” at four AM!! Back and forth up and down the upstairs hallway. Sheeesh. They even head butt each other and TKS allows Katie to sidle up to her and rub against her. Thankfully the humans have NO photo evidence of this but I tell you it is real!

But you can tell that TKS is proud of her ability to be flexible enough to accept Kit Katie.

Wait! What? I didn’t say I was softie!!

Ok, well maybe TKS is still trying to avoid being a “softie” but hey, she just chills whenever Kit Katie is around. What more can I say.

Yeah, yeah…so I let Kit Katie have my last treat…big deal!

So, Kit Katie will remain with us until she can get past her problematic health challenges. Mom L and Dad P have been out a lot more green papers trying to get her leaky right eye treated. It will likely always leak but at least now she seems more comfortable. We will leave Katie posted on three websites but we are not longer taking her to any adoption events. She simple cannot withstand the stress. It challenges her immune system.

This is why Kit Katie will no longer be hosted at the end of my blog. Just want you all to know she is safe with us.

And the beat goes on—

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Now don’t get fooled to thinking that I am loving how this “beat” keeps going on—’cuz I’m not. You know how much I luvluvluv my personalized tent, right? Well, you can see that I am now spending my daytime nap time in Alfie’s bed under a bench!! Sheesh!!

I didn’t even bother getting outta my Alfie bed when Dad P loaded up Kit Katie (KK) to take her to Petco adoptions with Community Concern For Cats (CC4C). Most of the public stopping by the cats up for adoption are asking “where are the kittens?” so there is pent up desire for kittens which keeps families disinterested in even young adults like KK.

KK spent Saturday and Sunday at Petco. Not loving it at all. KK is in the top cage.

I’m gonna watch the street because people scare me

Finally she did turn around to check out what all the commotion was.

Who the heck let these humans in here?

Toward the end sweet KK crept even closer to the front almost as though she knew that she just might find her forever family.

Hey? Wanna take me home with you?

Beyond the nerve wracking time spent at adoptions, KK has been keeping all of us entertained. Mom L was not, and still isn’t, well. She is having her first ever horrible experience with positional vertigo. She spent a good bit of time in bed after being at emergency earlier last week. After a long nap, Mom L woke to find KK right next to her, me at her feet not far from KK and TKS was next to her head on the other pillows. Yes, we were all right there doing our best nurse duty.

Everybody shape up! Mom L needs us!

And yesterday, KK gave Mom L a total fright. She did what not even TKS has done since we moved here. She jumped from the staircase landing bench to the TOP of the curio cabinet!! Limpy leg and all!!

Wow!!! That was fun!!

Needless to say, Mom L was not amused!

Thank you all for your many kind words of comfort to Mom L on her Facebook post about her vertigo episode. She continues to experience it and is not a happy camper to say the least.

And the beat goes on…

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

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!!!
