And Then There Were Four Savannah Cats
The Savannah House of Four-ers
It's been a few weeks since this little sweetie came to live with us. On October 24th, 2018, we made room for one more. Miss Phoebe (formerly "Patches") is Calypso's full sister and littermate and was still in need of a loving home. She is an F5 Savannah Cat. Her spots are concealed under her beautiful autumn leaf and ginger-colored coat. This is what makes her nontraditional spotting both unique and beautiful.
Phoebe's Big Adventure
When I picked Patches/Phoebe up at the airport, following an entire day of flying with connections, she immediately started to purr in her crate. She was very calm on the ride home and during her few days of quarantine in our master bathroom; as if nothing had ever happened.
Her only real stress, was the other three hissing, growling, and trying to get in the room to see her. It was obvious that she is tough as nails and used to being around numerous cats. This was nothing after what she had been through with the whole "ten days stuck in a high tree" saga. Phoebe definitely used two of her nine lives last month...one when she got away and scaled the tree and went for ten days without food and water and the other, when she either fell from the tree or made her way down and back to safety. She's a very lucky and thankful girl, and she knows it, because she has been perfectly well-behaved and docile since the day she arrived in her new home.
