The Original “Fly Swatter” & The “Peek-a-Boo” Shuffle…



Purrrr to all !! Well You know me … I mean maybe you do or you maybe don’t? But you’ll get to know me better if you read my awesome story! I truly have an amazing story because I was at a bad home and then foster care for 6 mos and I had two babies! They got to go together to their furrrever home, and boy…am I glad! Now I’ve been with my mommy and daddy since Jan 29, 2013! It’s been about 15 months and I think Im going to keep them!!
I have two stories to tell you ! First of all I GOT A FLY TODAY!! I went to get mommy and I got her to follow me. We were at the big doorwall window and there was a fly! Imagine in your mind how pawesome I am because this is what happened next…. “WHOOOOOSH” one swipe of my paw and I got that fly!!! One swipe!!! Yep I put up my paw way up high and it went a bit “loopy” on me but it was a great play toy for a few moments! Mommy was hyperventilating because she felt sorry for that silly ‘ol fly!! Doesn’t she know Im a “meat-a-vore” you know…the opposite of “veg-a-vore”??? Well then I got to really entertain mommy and daddy! I know they’re so proud of me! So I kept toying with that little critter for a few! I put it in my mouth, roll it around…spit it out! I did that a few times (and I know mommy was waiting for me to bring it to her as a gift, like usual, but “WOOOP THERE IT WENT!!! In the mouth…roll it around “MMMMM” and “snap”!! It was gone, vamoose, adios.., yayyyy for me!!! Us know Im the finicky cat that eats for no one and only what I like, when I like it and where I like it…. Most of all the way I like it! That was one yummy fly!! Mommy was aghast!!! Daddy was cracking up!!! I was mostly just “full”! Haha MOL!!
Then…now that I had all that extra protein all of that extra energy… It was time for playing “peek a boo” with mommy!! Mol mol…she hides and pops up and says “ppeeek!!”or “peek a boo!” And then I run and hide and I pop out of a box or from behind a wall!!! Then she tries to do the same and then daddy decides to play and there we are,… all. 3 of us running around the house playing “Peek a boo”!! It must look really funny to other hoomans!!! Yea … MOL…they think they were “running around” and playing with me, but I’d say it was more like a “shuffle” they do Not a good run like me!!! “I’m the Queen of the house I say” as they’re sprawled out on the couch ready for a good nights sleep!!!!… While I’m just getting started for the night! Gotta go do some more fly swiping and bug chasing !!! Hahaha love, Luna xx



Breaf-gast and sleeping arrangements!!

Hellooo Furriends,

I hope everyone on the “other side” of the “Kitty Cat Diaries” is having a great week? Well, I have a couple of thing to tell you..about Mommy and Daddy and me, too! Its sooo funny because my Daddy,thought he never really wanted a cat…he even used to make cat jokes!! Until I showed up!! Now… I feel him rub my head and my back lightly until I purr quietly to him….and he worries about me!! MOL… and its cracking Mommy up! Mommy thought she was going to be “on her own” with me and that I’d become totally her BFF *(best Feline Furriend). I’m starting to think Daddy loves me just as much as Mommy does! I watch them both, like a hawk! If either of them moves, I must see where we are going! Its really cute how they kinda both want ME to be their own BFF!! Though… I only sleep with mommy…Well I know that Daddy is allergic (they both are allergic ..but they use allergy meds and they also have inhaler.. But its totally worth it! I’m just so precious! They enjoy the fact that I’m very intelligent and I know he can’t have me sleeping next to him..sooo I just check him out to make sure he’s breathing and then I make sure she’s breathing and I gracefully tuck myself up right under mommy’s arm at night. Her Right armpit is my comfy spot each night while laying my little chin on her arm! I’m just sooo cute! I’ve also heard that I’ve been really darling in the mornings as well! I just “meow” and start knocking Mommy’s eye drops over (they’re on her bedside table with lots of little “goodies” that I enjoy knocking to the ground from time to time) and there’s more little things I find to “play” with and knock off of her bedside table at about 7:00 am each morning!! But this Summer I’ve change my internal alarm clock to 9:00 am! They reallllly love me now!!ha ha MOL…when I woke them at 7:00 am, Mommy would say “oh Luna its too early,can we stay a bit longer?!” Then I “allow” her or them lays back down for a bit longer. This time I like to settle in near her hips or legs and I continue grooming myself until about 8:30/9:00 am….Finally, when 9:00 am rolls around, after they’ve lounged half of the day away; well then then I make a sweet little “Meeeap???” sound, that melts their hearts of course! MOL …MOL…Mommy will say “OK baby girl you’ve been sooo good, lets go get us some bref-gast”(doesn’t she know it’s “break-fast and not breaf-gast?” by now?? I humor her)…then…I pick up my “baby” ( a little washcloth like animal-ish toy,the first toy I got at my new furrever home here!! So I drop it at mommy’s feet…she is then, by way of a daily ritual now, supposed to pick it up and toss it down the stairs and say “Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!”…. Then I switch from mellow Luna…into a “thundercat” and I bounce and run, run, run, allover the house. After breaf-gast and “zoom, zoom, zooming” all over the house, I’m ready for some good grooming. While I’m 1/2 asleep after all of that…Mommy or daddy decides that it’s time to “play”. I play whirly bird toy game,….stalking…hunting.. And catching!!!!! Then I, Luna,..”Queen of the house”…get up on MY spot up on top of the kitchen counter…and I lay down for a good, long drink of water from the place where the water just comes out of a spout for them!! (*the faucet at the kitchen sink, of course)!! I’m bothering no one, just happily slurping and drinking my water while I hear the sound of that “food can opener”!! Mommy’s over there in the same room as me,opening a can of “Natural Balance’s”: chicken & green pea, ultra Cat flavor, Indoor cat flavor or Duck & green pea flavored wet food for me to eat from my special dish and some at the end, from mommy’s fingers/hands (we bond!)!!! I even get to eat from a spot UP on the counter now!! It’s easier for mommy’s back pain issues. I even eat the last few bites from a spoon and Mommy’s hands!!! Hahaha…,such a loved and spoiled kitty I am !!!! Since I’m so affectionate and loving I can have whatever I want, as long as it won’t harm me in any way, shape or form! Well, that’s my news from the “kitty cat diaries” today….have a Purrfect day pals!!! love, Luna,

The Beginning….THE HOARDER”S




Dear Diary,

Hello!! My name is Luna and I’m a domestic medium/short hair mix ..and all white kitty cat! I have beautiful light bright green eyes and I know what I want and I let it be known! I’m very intelligent and I truly do know how to communicate with my humans. I’m going to first tell you my story and then we’ll get on with the more important things like weekly fun stories about me and the little “dickens” that I am.
I was living in a “Hoarders” house with 27 other cats and about 10 or so dogs. We werent’ fed and we were all starving, but the dogs got really upset when they didn’t get fed. I mean we can hunt for ourselves if we really need to…find a mouse or a few bugs and we are good for a few hours, right? Well, dogs just don’t hunt well and they started feeding on the cats in the house and that was really scary for me. I found that my body was doing weird things and I felt the instinct to get out of the house. I snuk out one time when the door was opened and I went to a neighbors deck and hid under there. Before I knew it, I had 2 kittens with me and I had to feed and protect them. But before long, the neighbors found us and I was very thin at only about 6 lbs at 1 1/2 yrs old and full grown! I was very hungry and scared when they found us. They put us in a box and took us BACK to the place I escaped from. I was very worried….scared and I wondered what would become of us?
When the neighbors took us back to the humans that I escaped from, they noticed that there were waaaay too many kitty’s running around. None of them looked very healthy and the dogs were starving as well. They called the Humane Society and they came and rescued all of us!! Yayyy for them and for my “foster mom” who took care of me and my kittens for the next 6 mos!
I stayed there and they found that I needed to get healthy and was very ill. I needed to be with my kittens longer than most. My foster mom took me and my kittens for as long as it would take for me to get strong and be less fearful and timid.
After 6 months went by, a young lady who was 24 years old, took me home in a box with some holes in it. I was a little scared…or maybe a lot scared really…When I got “home” I had to go to the bathroom and there were no windows and it was really small. I didnt’ like it much in there. I was really scared and the girl was so nice and she felt really bad for me. But you see she already had one kitty and when I came, the Humane Society workers told her to put me in the bathroom for a few days and let me out for a few hours at a time until me and the other kitty could get to know each other and become friends.
After about 4 or 5 days of her kitty and me both hissing and not really wanting anything to do with this new arrangement, she felt really bad for her kitty and for me. She didn’t want me to have to go back to the humane society, so she called her mommy and daddy. Luckily, her mommy and daddy had been thinking about becoming parents to a kitty like me. I was scared but I’m very strong and resilient, so I was hoping for something good to happen.
We arrived at her parents house and immediately I was taken down the basement. It wasn’t so bad because it’s carpeted and has a few nice bedrooms and stuff down there. In fact, it’s actually a pretty interesting place with loads of boxes to explore, rooms to run in and things to investigate. But when it got a little bit quiet, I decided that I was not staying down there alone, if I could help it. I noticed from the bottom of the stairs, that the door was only like a 1/2 door and it had been “cut off” because there had once been teenagers down there and the parents wanted to know what was always going on! MOL…(meow out loud)…
So, I saw the 1/2 door and from the bottom of the steps I could hear them talking. Suddenly, there was a “bang” noise and I jumped from the bottom of the steps to the top of this tiny 1/2 inch ‘top of door’ little ledge! The people ran up to me and started laughing hysterically! I simply didn’t see what was so funny?? But I decided that they were kinda nice and I might stay there awhile if they kept it up.  I also felt like my new mommy and I were “kindred spirits” because as I later have found out, she was abused and had much trauma in her life; just like me.   We just had a special connection and now a very special bond that cannot be broken!
That was one year and almost 2 months ago! I now weigh 10 pounds and I’m a very loved and happy kitty cat!!! I’m still persnickety and skittish most of the time, but I’m so adorable, affectionate and loving. It took me a whole year, but with their love, patience and kindness; I now will jump up into my mommy’s chair and sit with her for the evening. It is my “thing” now and that’s just what we do. I won’t sit there most other times, but geez…it took me almost a year to do that!! I used to sleep in the bed next to her at night time, but when I started jumping up into her chair, then I stopped sleeping at night with her. I’m not sure what is wrong with the bed or the bedroom or the upstairs, but I just never want to go up there anymore. Once in awhile mommy opens the window in her bedroom and then somehow I just know and I go upstairs and she’ll open the window curtains for me. I can sit in a window for hours!!   I  enjoy sitting on my “cat tree” in front of the big door wall window for a large part of the mostly sunny days.  I also love to lounge around on the pillow covered “box seat” of the front room’s bay window!  I love to stalk and hunt bugs in the basement!  I can jump onto the mantle as if it was nothing! I am a very loved kitty cat now days!
Well, my furrriends…that is enough for one day! I am glad to meet you and I hope we have many adventures together…Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you soon.
May the “fierce be with you” and the “purrs” be ever in your favor!
Kitty Luv,
Luna Skye
