The Kid Sage: Shortest Attention Span on Earth

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Do you have a fur family member with a short attention span?? You so have to tell me in comments and give EXAMPLES please!

Movin’ on—so you know that TKS luvluvluvs helping Dad P make their our bed every Sunday morning.

Well, what you may not know is how easily she is distracted by her purrsonal needs and interests.

Bring it on Dad P!! I’m ready to play “making the bed”!

As you can see, she is ready, even eager. Anticipating the first move.

I can see your first move with the wand stick Dad!

She waits for Dad P to move the handle end of the wand to make her suspect there is something UNDER the new top sheet.

You can’t fool me Dad P! I see that wand handle

She anticipates, waits and then attacks for the kill! Expert!!

Wait a minute. Something is happening to my energy level

Her “energy level”??? What the heck is that all about? Can’t she focus?

*snort* ahem—just a sec’—zzzz

TKS simply cannot maintain focus on what she is doing at any given time. Why I doubt she can focus….

Hang on Dad P, whats that I see outside?

…on anything. Well, except maybe excluding whatever catches her attention in a nanosecond.

Now she is re-focusing on something else other than bed making—typical TKS.

I can see it!! Can you???

Finally she catches MY attention! What in cat’s name is she seeing outside???

Holy catnip!! I can’t believe my own eyes and nose! It’s back!!!

No telling what “it” might be, but clearly TKS has seen it before, even if only in her own mind’s eye. Like I said, shortest attention span on earth!

PeeEss—Please be sure to join me this Wednesday for my blog post introducing my readers to my fellow Finalists for the Nose-to-Nose Social Media Awards from BlogPaws. Winners will be announced at the May 2017 BlogPaws Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA.

The Food Thief Strikes Again!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

*taking a deep breff*—Where shall I start? I know so many of my readers believe that The Kid Sage’s food thief personality is brought on by Mom L and Dad P. You know, they “ought” to not encourage her or “tolerate” her behavior.

But hey, TKS is such a sweet and innocent cat, right?

I can smell beef!

Ummm—I might have to rethink that given her look, na’mean??

So Dad P had not grilled steak in several weeks. He did last week between the rain storms we have been having around the San Francisco bay area. I, purrsonally, do not partake of beef steak from a human plate. However, TKS, well—that’s another matter.

Hey Mom L—excuse the paw fork reach

And to the dismay of many readers, yes, TKS is allowed on the dining table when there are no other guests. Hence, she takes her liberties.

Mine, all mine!!!

To tell it truthfully, Mom L allowed TKS to take liberties just to get this blog post for me!! As for TKS, she was overjoyed she could indulge in the left overs from Mom L’s plate. In fact she finally drug her “kill” down to the floor to give it proper feline attention.

Chomp, munck, slurp

Before you leave a comment, please remember that Mom L and Dad P do not have fur-less kids, nor fur-less grand-kids.  TKS and I “are” their furr-family. So why not have TKS join for a meal now and then?

PeeEss—stay tuned for a Monday Meowsie News update on Momma Kat and her five kittens and the future home of Momma Kat’s Hope Chest.

Confused TKS—Confident Savannah

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

This is another report on my continuing progress—some of which is beginning to confuse The Kid Sage. You see not everything in my relationship with Dad P is exactly as it was when she first came to live in my our special loving, caring home.

I’ve already told about my progress in getting closer to, and trusting more, Dad P. You can check out my progress reports with him here, here and here, which is a very early report on my progress with allowing Dad P to feed me in the first six months of my adoption. If you haven’t been following me since April 2012 then you might wanna be sure to check that one out.

Now for my recent confidence which has caused TKS some confusion.

First you need to know that Mom L always sits on the couch with me at night to watch TV and Dad P always sits in his Mom L’s other chair and TKS gets to join him.

WELL! Was TKS ever shocked and confused the other night when Dad P did something different and SO DID I!!

What's Dad P doin' sitting there!!

What’s Dad P doin’ sitting there!!

And why the heck is Nana still staying on the couch without Mom L??

And why the heck is Nana still staying on the couch without Mom L??

And now you can see why I was staying still while Dad P settles into Mom L’s place on the couch.

Ahhh —Dad P you give such nice warm scritches

Ahhh —Dad P you give such nice warm scritches

Give me a shout out in comments if you think I am progressing faster as I get older. I’m doin’ a study for my meowmoirs.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
