Dear Diary, It’s All Up To Me!

Dear Diary,

I know that I can be all stuck up and everything……but I can be in your face kind of cute, too! I can’t decide if I get lonely sometimes or if I enjoy ruling the roost? I mean, sure, I think about it but then I don’t know what I want? I just kind of like my life the way it is. Sometimes my “people” talk about getting another kitty or even a dog!  I’m just not quite sure what I want? I remember at my foster home, they had 3 little girls that I used to sleep with. You couldn’t tell them apart!! They all looked exactly like the other!! They were all 3 the same age and they were little, but not so little that I was afraid of them! That home had 4 furry creatures lurking around that barked a lot! They had several other furry beauties that looked more like me, but not quite as beautiful of course.  We all got along pretty well! I’m just not sure what I want for now bcz I really like my life the way it is!!!

I do wish my Meommy would feel better, though; because she’s my person! I mostly sit and sun myself in the window seat or In my brand new delux ginormous kitty tree! I do my kitty “yoga” (a kitty’s  gotta stay fit, ya know??).  I also run around up and down the stairs chasing my “baby” and toss it up in the air!!  All the while I’m keeping Meommy & daddy awake sometimes during the night.   You see, my “baby” is the first toy that I ever got, here at my “new” forever home. I love to play, and gosh I am already going to be 7 years old on July 28, 2017!! I know I’m just a young lil’ thing!!!

Do any of you kitties have a “Meommy” that doesn’t feel well often, like mine?  I still like to truly take care of my needs and then my wants.  But then whenever I feel like it, I can jump up into Meoemmy’s lap or her chair to give & get some good cuddles! I must try to remember to do that more often because it really does feel nice!  I know she likes it too because her mouth curls up all funny and she starts petting me! I do love that I must say!!

So I guess I have two things to tell you all, today! The first, is that even though you think you’re getting a “furrriend” for your fur baby…… NOPE…it’s for you!  I’m just sayin’! I’m good either way, but I’m pretty sure I would just tolerate it for your sake! The other thing that I want to tell the other fur babies is this: you need to try and be a little cognizant of your people and how much they love you! I know mine love me so much! So in saying that, lets all try to be just a bit more loving & cuddly, OK??  I mean they do feed us (yes, I do know they sometimes try to clothe us…ugggh thank goodness I don’t have to deal with that! I pity those of you who do!!)….and if your people are anything like mine, I get spoiled! So, OK….so they have to feed us! But I must give my people a little bit of credit because I get the best of the best food and the put my water bowl in the freezer so that my water is icy chilled and so yummy! I also just have to jump up in the counter top, by the big water bowl; and they turn on the never ending water that I ❤️ love! It’s so delicious…yummmm!

I got a little off track, as usual.  But what I really wanted to tell you was just give more kitty love!!  They just eat it up and then it’s really sooooo good for us too! Don’t tell them that…shhhh!! Ok??? So go jump up on your Meommy or daddy’s lap & give some great eye kisses, the kind that say “I love you!” Then rest awhile by using their body for the warmth that we all love! Go on now….shooo!!!! Yes, you… get up and give some love!! Bye now!! See you next time that I feel like saying something!!

Love, Luna Skye

Above is Meeee inside of a bag, a very cool bag!


This is me resting my weary head on my “baby”! Remember my favorite toy? The one that I toss into the air and make all kinds of noise with!!

Bye for now Luvs!!

Dear Diary,

I just don’t know if my pawrents know how lucky they are that they “got” me for life?? I am the best kitty cat in the whole world.  Of course I only give hugs and love when “I” want to and I don’t like any kind of treats and barely even like food at all. Im a bit goofy that way.  I was hurt and abused when I was a kitten and my mommy and daddy now (for the past 4 years) don’t really know everything that I endured for my first year and half of life.  I was in the hospital and then foster care after that for 6 months because I was so very thin and sick. I had every parasite and illness possible, just about.   The foster mommy and daddy were nice and they had triplets that were age 11.  I used to sleep with the girls. They let me keep my 2 kittens until I got adopted first, because I was such a good mommy.  I remember them and they were sweet babies and looked just like me! My forever mommy has one photo of them after they’d been into some mischief and had gotten into fireplace soot! They are white cats just like me, but they looked like black kittens! MOL…(Do you know “MOL”??? It is just like “LOL” but in Cat speak….so it is saying “Meow out loud”…get it??)

So I’m going on 7 years old this Summer and I’ve started to play like a kitten again. Mommy and daddy are so excited that I’m “into” playing again. I don’t like bought toys or conventional things. I prefer to chase a piece of string that they have tied to a plastic rod and it has a ton of knots in it. I LOVE LOVE to chew on knots!  I know I’m so silly! I am the weirdest cat in that I don’t like wet food.  Most cats run when they smell the moist, wet food come out.  Mommy tries every now and again, to get me to eat the wet food. So once in awhile I devour a little few bites of “Natural Balance Salmon and green pea limited ingredient” wet cat food.  But mostly I just like a dry food mixture of the “Natural Balance limited ingredient, Salmon and green pea and Chicken and green pea” dry food. Sometimes I do like to sniff around when Mommy is making Tuna salad sandwiches. She gives me just a couple of “pinches” of the tuna and I really do love that.  But even then, I walk away after a pinch or two!

I must say that I am such a good girl! I’m so pretty and sleek and actually pretty gorgeous! But I’m not conceited at all! I think that I’m the most precious, smartest and best behaved kitty ever! But again, I’m not conceited at all. I think My mommy is going to post a video tape of me playing with my string knots that I love to chew and gnaw on. The weirdest thing, or another odd thing about me, is that I don’t like conventional toys either! MOL….I like the ones daddy makes for me but I don’t like or prefer “store bought” toys.  For Halloween, Mommy got me some “kitty YODA ears” to wear. I was NOT having any of that. I am a CAT and I will not be lowered to wear any kind of “ears” other than my own! Besides, it’s my mommy and daddy’s job to please me, in life….right? In the long run, by them pleasing me…..It makes them happy, so I let them please me pretty much whenever they want…MOL….

Have a great day everyone and come back to my Kitty Cat Diaries again…see what I’m up to! Sending lots of headbutts, purrs and Kitty LOVE!

Cat Scouts and Happy New Year!

Dear Kitty Cat Diary…

Gosh I’m so sorry that it’s been such a very long time since I’ve written here to you. I am a very busy kitty and I have so much to do you know? I have to lay in the sun and sit on my kitty tree…..and then there’s napping, tugging and chasing little bugs wherever I can find them. If I cannot find them, I manufacture them in my mind.  No, really….it’s true! I think my mommy thinks I’m crazy because when I get really bored, I try to give her the creeps and scare her. It’s really fun late at night when daddy is already asleep and mommy is up watching TV or playing online.  I stare at the wall near our front door and I totally freak her out as I stare and then jump at the wall as if something is really inside of it. Honestly, nothing is inside of the wall because they’ve checked and double checked. Daddy says there’s probably squirrels on the porch that are making me a little frisky late at night.

So we just finished Christmas with that time of the year when they put a tree right in the middle of the house!  I love to get up into the middle of that tree and pull stuff down, especially the tree itself! But then, they go and get this stinky spray and it makes me run away and stay far away from that thing. Then we have that day when everyone comes over and I’m not your social butterfly, honestly. You think I’m pretty friendly here, because this is where I write my fun thoughts and all the stuff that happens to me.   I am very friendly, loving and a very good girl; but I just don’t like excitement or a whole bunch of people around. I especially only like children from a distance! I love to be “Angel Kitty Luna” and send the sick children letters, photos and fun little toys to cheer them. But the kids that come around here are really small and super loud; in fact they scream very very loudly! When they come over, I run and hide under the bed….MOL.

I love the holidays because daddy is home for a long time and then mommy and daddy stay up late with me. They stay home often and I get lots of snuggles. I’m not your normal snuggly kind of feline. I do not enjoy being picked up and hugged but I don’t mind hugs and kisses if I pick the time and place.  Most of all I like to lay in my mommy’s lap and sleep all cuddled up….but….only when I CHOOSE to do so! She would like me to sleep on her all the time but I like to be picky about the timing of my snuggles. I also have a little trick that I like to do. When they pick up their keys to go out the door, I jump onto the counter top and start licking the water faucet. I think they’ve got my “number” now though! They have started to turn on the water before they go out, as they are putting on their coats, shoes etc. I had them going for awhile though! I used to make them late for everything and put off their time of leaving me alone. I put off the feeling that I am a “loner” but I truly am a lover and don’t tell anyone, but I really do like to cuddle on my mommy!

Well, 2017 is just around the corner! I cannot believe I will be 7 years old this coming July 25th! I have been here with my pawrents for 4 years on January 29th!  I know that everyone is supposed to have something for the “New Year”, some kind of resolution or something they are going to do differently.  Well, I’ve decided to join a Cat group! How about that? It is called “Cat Scouts” and it is at “catscouts.com” and I am excited about it. I actually joined awhile back, but have not really become a full member until just today. Mommy got me my own profile page and joined some groups for me today. We even put some pictures up and I’ve made a few new furriends! I’m pretty excited about being a “Cat Scout”. So I will let you know how it goes! I really hope that it doesn’t go like most New Year’s resolutions go….and that means…by the wayside!! MOL…noooooo way….My mommy is a fun one and we will do lots with the Cat Scouts! So “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to all of you, my special furriends who come here to visit me. I will try to write more often and I’m sorry that it has been so long between posts this time. We will do better and I will get my mommy to come here and let you know what’s going on with me more often.  Loads of Kitty love to you all!!! Come back and see me again soon!

Little White Kitty Goes To Vet ER

You know when you get a new family and things go great for 4 years you build up sort of a trust, right? Well my meowmy. (“Meowmy” is Mommy in Cat) and daddy  let me down yesterday! It may take awhile to thoroughly trust them again!

It all started the night before last, when my meowmy was petting me and then petted my head and then my chin! I liked it so much I was “in Heaven”! She saw a sore on my upper left lip! It was sort of like what humans call a “kanker sore”. Of course like she always does, Meowmy freaked out! She called daddy and then of course all I wanted was to get away!

The next day meowmy had to go to the hospital for some tests. They got home and I greeted them like usual but they acted all upset and worried! Even daddy got worried, I could see it in his face! I heard them say that my voice sounded unlike me! They were right though, I could barely get a sound out and I kinda just crackled my “Meows”! 

Uh oh! Here it was coming! That box they TOSS me into when I go to the animal Dr. Place! First we went into that big 4 wheeled box that’s very loud! I smelled something familiar in the air as we went out the house door into that box on 4 wheels! It was the smell of sweet sunshine,good bugs and chasing other kitties through the meadow! I remember that smell! But back then, I was very sick and vulnerable! Now Im “queen” of the home and I have 3 cat trees, a bay window and another window box seat! I can look out the window at the world and still be safe, loved and fed!!

Ok back to the story! That smell of sweet fresh air went to my head for a moment! So we are going along “bumpity bump bump” and we stop at an unfamiliar Dr. Shop? Hey, where my Dr. Hott? He’s My Dr and I know him. I like the pretty girls there and they’re nice to me! Why am I someplace different today!! Well I did hear mommy through her tears, say that Dr Hott went on something you called a “Vacation”?? Hmmm well, I guess I had to put on my brave girl face and see what was gonna go down ! We got inside “VES”, or “Veterinary Emergency services”. The lady was nice and then I went into this cold room! They wanted me out of my little carrier! My goodness what do these people want from me? Just a few minutes ago they were dragging me into this thing, now they want me out?? Uggh… So what do they do?? The started tipping it upsides down with a gentle shake! I was holding on for dear life! All paws on the little cage bars so I could hold on better! Then I heard my meowmy’s loving voice telling me to “C’mon Luna, it’s OK honey, come out.” Then she said the magic words “Nobody’s gonna hurt you !” So I finally let go, but not until I really wanted to!!

Then this lady, who definitely was not my Dr. Hott, started poking me and prodding me! She violated me with that temperature thing and I gave her a good warning hiss for that one!! But she listened to my breathing and my temp was fine! Then she told my pawrents that I likely had a virus or some of my regular pesky allergies! I guess she didn’t want that little Kanker sore to become infected so she gave me some antibiotics that look like they’re for horses not little white kitty cats!!!

So what’d she do?? She sends her troops in to shoot this horse pill down my throat with a small “rocket launcher”!! This lady then explains to my pawrents how to use this and tells them that they must do this for 8 days! Omg!… For 8 days I’m gonna be gagging these big huge pills??

 Well I was happy with what happened next! They opened the door to my mini travel cage and I literally ran into it and curled up into a little fur ball! I’m going home! Yayyyyy!!! So I allowed my pawrents to pay the VES at least a hundred U.S. Dollars and then we got to leave in the big box with four wheels!! We got home and I was never so glad to be home!!! 

Please pray that this is all I have! Because I heard the lady in the the white coat say that I need to go see my Vet, Dr. Hott, in a week. When he’s back from his time off! She wants to make sure there’s no underlying illness or reason for my funny hoarse voice and the ulcer or kanker sore in my mouth! Please pray that all goes well because my meowmy will be very very sad if anything happens to me! I just dont think either of us can handle that! I just wanna keep on catching bugs and lying in the sun !! 

Thank you for stopping by “The Kitty Cat Diaries!”….until next time take care of your fur babies!!!

Love, Luna Skye

Sick Sucks!!

Hello everyone,

How has everyone been lately? I had a little illness for the past couple of months so I’ve been a little bit sad and out of sorts, I guess you could say! I decided to write to you today to let you know what happened to me in case you’re wondering?I just know that everybody is just dying to know what’s happening and where I’ve been and you just missed me so much ? I know you did bcz I missed you….. so you must’ve missed me???

OK …OK …so pretend anyway just humor me …. You don’t want to hurt my feelings right? I promise I won’t hurt your feelings if you don’t hurt mine MOL!!  I know I’m a cat but I don’t feel like a cat; as I think God gave me extra sensitive feelings…. Very un-catlike ! I feel like like you do when you are sad or like you do when you are crabby or happy it’s kind of the same…..although I can be very aloof!

OK… So for awhile I started hiding quite often. One day mommy came home and I was bleeding above my left temple! It looked really scary snd ugly! Mommy & daddy were very worried about me! They took me to the vet and They were concerned it was that bad “c” word illness! I, of course, dong know what that means???

I went to the vet, but hadn’t been for awhile and forgot what it was all about. So I sauntered into the little bedroom that has a see-Thru door. I think you people call it a carry cab for pets!?? So I went right in.  Then while in the car I cried and talked quite a lot! We arrived and not only was I weighed it then I was violated by something called a “thermometer”!!! Yuk!!! That I did NOT LIKE one bit!!  The Dr thought I  needed a cortisone shot and then he had the audacity to call me “a bit overweight”!! Oh My Gosh! I’m a lady and no lady likes to hear those words!! So he gave me the shot and then she also said I had white “plaques” on my tongue. Those CAN be associated with cancer or allergies! So here’s the thing: mommy was worried sick!!

The Vet Dr. Said that if the shot made those white plaques go down then it was allergies! Oh My Gosh! It truly was a very gruesome looking sore! It looked like a cork!! It was very gross! I got home and I hid for 2 weeks! Mommy was very worried because though I do have my quirks and my aloof attitude. I usually sit with mommy and hang out with them in the front room! Well I didn’t do any of that! I hid and was off to myself for two weeks until we had to go back to the Dr!

We went back and he said those white plaques were getting smaller. Did I tell you that I had to get back into that little “kitty cab”?? Uggh!! I just don’t like being in there at all!! I went for my second visit, got violated by that darned temperature stick (I truly do NOT like that thing)!! Then did I tell you that I lost 1/2 lb in 2 weeks!?? The Dr was happy and he said I had to lose 2 more lbs by June! But he was proud of me and my mommy!!

So guess what?? After a month of hiding and after a month with 2 Dr visits and a big, red, brown & ugly sore on my head and 2 temperature sticks along with 2 injections of cortisone (which changed my personality pretty drastically as its been known to do!!)..I was cleared of all bad diseases and it was deemed allergies!!! Mommy was so ecstatic so very happy!!

I got a clean bill of health, though it took me another few weeks to come out of hiding! But now I’m all better and I got back up on my mommy lap the other day ;(as seen in the picture!!)!! I still have to lose 2 lbs by May, the Dr said. Also, he says since it was allergies, I may have to do the injections yearly!! Yukk injections, I hate them!! But at least I’m all pretty again and I’m very well again and I’m so lucky to have a great Veterinarian ….& a mommy & daddy who love & care about me!

 


 This is me being a goober “weirdo”!! I was licking and smelling moments hair! Mol…. yep…I’m baaaaack to myself once again !

Licky, Licky…

Hey,…does anyone remember those “Ramona” books from a looong time ago?? Well, my momma used to read them when she was a little girl. The family in that book had a kitty cat that they named “Picky Picky”!  Sometimes I think that should have been my name because I am so very picky about what I won’t eat…or what I will eat…which is absolutely nothing except one kind of food. If Natural Balance ever goes out of business, I’m in trouble because I will NOT …and I repeat…I WILL NOT eat anything except that kind of dry food and it must be “Salmon and green pea limited ingredients” aaaaand/oooor  a mixture there of   ….of that and also the “Chicken and Green Pea formula limted ingredients! I just must be or I refuse to eat! Now….once in awhile I will eat the Salmon wet canned food from “Natural Balance” too. But it MUST and I repeat…it MUST be mixed with just the right temperature and right amount of water and be mixed up like Mommy  does it, with a spoon (my own special kitty spoon too!).  If it is : Lumpy, bumpy, chunky or too hot or too cold, I will NOT eat it. If it is Chicken, or Duck or anything but Salmon, I will not eat it either. I like what I like and don’t call me “finicky”!! Mommy tries to sneak a “Natural Balance” “treat” (dry kind) into my dry food, but I hunt it down and kick it right out of that food dish! I’m so good at being a huntress!

So now comes the dilemma because Momma let me try a bite of REAL people food Canned light tuna in water! She almost fainted because this was something that I finally liked! She has NEVER seen me like any food whatsoever or get really excited about it. I was abused and starved and very sick when someone found me and I had to go to Foster care for 6 mos to get well! Finally I got well and no  one told my mommy that I was a cat with good taste only (she says that bad word I don’t like …you know?..”Finicky”…but thats not ME!!)… I just know what I like and I only eat what I like and thats how it is. For crying out loud, I’m a CAT and this is what we do! Sooo why do you think Ramona named her cat “Picky Picky??”

My mommy let me try that Tuna and I went nutty because it was so good and I really love it. But she doesn’t think it’s good enough food for me and she read that it shouldn’t be an everyday type of thing, sadly for me :(***    But every once in awhile on  special occasions, I get to have a bit of Tuna. That makes me so happy and then when a little bit drops on the floor, I just start licking the floor like mad…..over and over and over and over again…just licking and licking and licking the floor!! Hence, the name of todays blog post “Licky Licky” because that’s my mommy and daddy’s new nickname for me…just purrrrrrfect, right??? MOL…..(do you know “MOL”??? It means “Meow out loud” just for those of you who are not cat computer saavvy”…)….

So My mommy is very happy that the Fall air is back in season. Do you wanna know why? Well, if you don’t or if you do, this is irrelevant because I’m the kitty and I’m going to tell you anyways!!  She loves the colder weather only because I like to get up on her lap and cuddle now again. During the Summer months, even though we have AC, I just don’t like that human contact so much as I like lounging in the sun spots on the floor or sleeping in my kitty window seat! But when the weather starts to get more chilly in the mornings and such, this is when I get up on her and she keeps me warm. At least she’s good for something..you know how those humans are!! They are put on this earth for my pleasure and that’s about it….or …well… the only reason I can think of right now anyways??!! So she keeps me warm and I cuddle and keep her warm and we just like to hunker down and snooze alot more. Of Course my most favorite thing to do is to get up on mommy when she’s just about ready to get up and get ready to go someplace. She lOVES me so much that she stays there and sits longer just to cuddle with me and then I make her late…ha ha ha …Baaahaaahaaa!! I’m such a little dickens…right??

I do like it when daddy comes home because he likes to play “fetch” with me. Like..well..he thinks I’m a dog or something, right?? He throws me this toy ball and I let him think that I’m gonna go for it. I put my little butt up in the air and I wiggle and waggle and then he throws it out there and I run, run, run realllllllllllllllllllly fast and I go past it and then I lay down! He thinks that is funny or fun for some reason, so I humor him! But I refuse to actually “fetch” as I am the species above all of that! Its for the dogs! Well, lastly….did you know that in my house they have at least 4 kitty beds for me? I use one of them in the basement during the Summer sometimes, but I never use any of the other 3 kitty beds!! Why should I? I like to sleep in little tiny patches of sunshine on the carpeted floor. I also like to sleep up on the mantle above the fireplace and up on the little 1/2 wall by the front door and living room area. See?? I have lots of great places to sleep, who needs a silly “cat bed”!

So anyways….I’ve got to go now because I think I smell some Tuna coming my way….but if worse comes to worse, I’ll just keep licking the floor wherever a drop spills over! I enjoy licking plastic bags too…but that’s a story for another day! Oh, by the way, if you do give your kitty cat plastic bags, be sure to cut the handles so we don’t get our little heads stuck in there and get hurt or even worse could happen especially if you’re not home!! Sending loads of Kitty Love your way…..Hey, don’t forget to check out my Facebook page at “Angel Kitty Luna Skye” (because I’m kind of a “celebrity” pet) and you can check out my  own Instagram at :  LunaSkye_kitty  and my very own Twitter account at : @Luna_Skye_kitty ……Bye for now…come back again….Tootles…Angel Kitty Luna..

Patience Is a “Fur”tue…

Photo Apr 11, 5 00 26 PM

Hello Kitty lovers,

If you have been following my blog, “The Kitty Cat Diaries”, you will know me. I am “Luna Skye” and I am a “Chemo-Angel Kitty”.  I send letters and small gifts via the U.S. Mail, to my assigned “buddies” via the Chemo-Angels program.  I love sending little gifts , snacks, toys, pressies etc..to cheer people up who are not feeling well and who are going through Chemotherapy.

When I’m not doing my letter writing with my human Mom, I am just being a regular kitty cat at home, living with my humans who love me very much. I love them too, but don’t tell them that OK? it might go to their heads and then they might expect displays of affection just any old time.  That’s just not going to happen!

So do you know that I came to live at my home now on January 29, 2013. I was 1 1/2 yrs old and now I am 4 yrs old! My mommy has been very patient in waiting for me to “come around”.  At first I started just jumping up on her chair and sitting on a plastic bag at her feet. That is what I did last Winter of 2013-14. Mommy put a plastic bag on the foot part of her “Lazy Boy” chair! She knows that I love to get into bags, any kind of bags (paper, plastic and any kind of bag or enclosure).  But with kitty cats like me you MUST be careful because I love to get into all bags. If the bag has any handles at all, you MUST cut them so I do not get caught inside of them. I am very curious and I might just put my head inside of the handles and then my head would be stuck and I could get hurt very badly.  In fact, if mommy throws the plastic grocery bag on the floor quickly for even just a moment, I curl up inside of it and EVERY time, I stick my little head inside of the handles!! It’s the very first thing that I do! Sooooo please please remember to always cut those handles! I’m precious  and I know your kitty is too!

So back to my story:  So last Winter I did start getting up to sit with mommy but still not too close but close enough and near her legs. At times I would put my chin on her leg and be really cute!  The bags she used just as “bait” to get me to sit near or with her!!  Then one day I stopped sitting up there on her chair. No matter what she did, I just didn’t want to sit  there any more.  I go and lay down to sleep under the couch in the Winter time because there’s a heat vent that goes straight under there. It’s nice and dark and cozy under there.  Just as mommy is cozy but she is not dark and I do prefer Dark places.  Do you know that the first 6 months that I lived here, I slept in mommy’s bed with her? Yep, I put my chin on her arm and I slept there every night. I don’t know why but I  suddenly stopped sleeping in her bed, in her room  and I even stopped going in their bedroom.  If I do enter their bedroom, I suddenly now realize where I am and I tend to LEAP over the line between the hall and bedroom door!! It’s almost as though….well…Mommy thinks I’m somehow afraid in her bedroom and that I think the line where the doorway meets is something scarey and so I jump over it!

Mommy was a bit sad last year and so I pampered her and as I have said, I did sleep on a bag at her feet and on her chair. I stopped doing that and then I slept in the rocking chair in the spare room.  Then I stopped sleeping there and I started sleeping on the window sill, special kitty cat seat!  Suddenly, I just stopped sleeping anywhere except the basement!

I do enjoy the creepy crawly things in the night downstairs! I love the dark (even though they think for some reason, I need a night light!!???)….I don’t!  Shhhhh….don’t tell because I just pamper them…they like it when I please them. I don’t do it often but sometimes I allow it to just happen.  Soooo then as I’ve said, I slept in the basement for a few months. I do enjoy it when mommy sleeps in her “Lazy Boy” chair and daddy has already gone up to bed! Because now that Im not finicky about where I sleep, I jump right up on her chair and get up on her tummy and I do the “kneading”  or the “bread rolling”  steps.  I get up on her and start “poking” and “picking” at her belly and clothes until I feel that it is “comfy”.  I settle in and go to sleep and I just love sleeping there for hours if I am allowed!  Gosh, I am giving her what she always wanted so why doesn’t she stay there forever so I can just enjoy myself?  She usually lets me sleep there for a couple of hours and then she goes up to bed to be with her hubby human.

So all in all, it has taken me almost 2 years before I have gotten to the spot in my life that I can comfortably get up and actually sit ON mommy’s lap.  So please, If you have a kitty and especially one like me who’s been through a lot of abuse and has “issues”…..please give them lots of time to get to know you.  Two years is a very long time but my mommy is /was patient and she just let me be who I am. She pets me and loves and feeds me.  She plays with me and always has.  She even just leaves me alone when I feel like that too!  Mommy went to get some advice from a “Cat Behaviorist” at first when I would not be or wasn’t very sociable even with her!  That educated person told my mommy that she could “bring me back to the shelter and get another cat who likes to be cuddly and sit on her lap”!!! My mommy cried and told the lady that she already “loves me” and that “Cats are not just things you can toss away”…we have feelings and I had been through so much, being part of the “Ann Arbor 88” (a group of 88 kitties found in a hoarder’s house a few years ago in about 2013).  I had been abused and neglected, scared and starved. I needed lots of time, love and affection. I needed to be who I just AM!

I’m so glad mommy didn’t give up on me and I didn’t give up on her either! Now we snuggle together on her chair all the time! She thought it might never happen. She thought we were just going to be “friends” and say “hello” to one another from time to time.  She thought I might only allow her to love me by petting me, brushing me, feeding me and cleaning my potty box!  But no!!!!…… I needed 2 years! I needed that time! Now we are the best of friends and I help Cancer patients to smile!  I sit with mommy every day now and we both enjoy it so much!

A Cat’s Eye View…

Hi Furrriends,

It’s me, Luna Skye! I’m sorry that it’s been awhile since I’ve written, but a whole lots been going on at my house.  First of all, the Summer was here and my daddy was home. I like it when daddy is home because then mommy and daddy are both home.  But the problem is that also then neither of them are home so much.  I do like routine you know!!?  My routine is as follows:  Get up from sleeping wherever the heck I want to sleep…usually in my mommy’s bed, in her arms and in a fur ball with my chin on her arm. (*she wakes up with her arm asleep sometimes, but that’s OK, it doesn’t bother me too much). Then I “talk” to everyone until they both pet me while I eat. Yes, I have this weird fettish of wanting to be petted whilst eating my food. I’m not quite sure where that one came from, but nonetheless, I do enjoy that human affection when filling my stomach up.  After eating…oh oh oh!~!!!! I forgot something…rewind…..go back….back some more….OK stop!  After sleeping, I get up first and then I do some “thunder storming” around the house first. THEN, Daddy gets up first and he turns on that loud thing with the water that pours out.  I patiently wait for him and then we go downstairs together….of course I race him and I always win!! Then he starts doing the business of making some hot water with a bag in it and some kind of bread thing that POPS up and makes a loud noise! I just cannot get used to it and I jump a mile every single time I hear it!! Then I hear mommy getting up and I don’t care if I’m in the middle of a long drink of water from the faucet; I run as fast as I can to mommy and rub my head on her hand and let her pet me.  She needs that you know? So then she knows what to do and she starts getting my dry food ready for the day and my new ice cold water for the day and then I get that soft gooey food that smells so awesome.  After that I usually shake my head to get the loose stuff off and it flies all over the place (I like that part too! hee hee) and I lay down for a nap.

So I like my routine and depending on if it is when my human daddy goes to work or not, thats what makes me either happy or not so much. In the Summer time I like to stand on a chair (as in my feature photo) and look out the front door at critters and such.  In the Winter, I just find the nearest heat vent or warm body and lay next to it or in my mommy’s case, on top of her!  I just love when mommy’s got a nice furry and fat robe on, otherwise she’s just too boney and I get down sometimes because I like a little “cushion” where I lay my lil punkin head!!! Summer time I am more aware of the sounds of birds chirping and the buzzing of the bees and other little tiny critters. I run around from window to window and have lots of fun absorbing the outdoor life, from my safe indoor “TV”.  In the Winter time though, I just feel more lazy and I don’t do any of that. Mostly, I get mommy or daddy to play with me for a bit after breakfast and then I like to sleep most of the rest of the times!

I’ve been a good little “chemo angel kitty”. I have found a few friends who saw my Facebook public celebrity pet page and they are sick and so I send them a cheery note sometimes,until they are done with chemo and stuff.  I like my calling and I enjoy making people feel warm and fuzzy. I am a warm and fuzzy kind of gal. I also am a chemo angel kitty to a little girl who’s only 4 yrs old, so pray for her OK? The lil stinker is so cute and I just love her because she just adores me so much…..ya know?

Well, I just wanted to say “hey” and check in with ya…Winter is around the corner and I’m just a lump on a log during that time. Well, not to say that my mommy is like a “log” but she is pretty boney when I go to lay down on her and that’s why I prefer the big blue robe or even better yet, a blanket on her lap. Sending kitty love and hopefully I won’t wait so long to check in next time! Sending love and kitty purrs to you and yours!! Hey visit my page on Facebook if you like or on “Catster” too. My “Catster address is on this blogs pages…you’ll see it up there someplace.  My Facebook page is at: https://www.facebook.com/AngelKittyLunaSkye  go there and come check me out, ok? If and when you arrive, could you and would you please just “LIKE” the page for me? Mommy told me to ask you that, because I don’t really care; I only care about people and other furry critters…so I send you my kitty love….

Bye for now, Angel Kitty Luna Skye20140307-094823.jpg

A Lesson In Trust

ImageImage

Hello Purrfect furriends!!
It’s me, Luna…How are you all doing? I’m doing so good! I helped my daddy figure out that a bird fell into our fireplace! I told him it was there and I got him and I got mommy and we all were listening and looking with a flashlight! Daddy found it and he got it out and saved the day! If I was wild and in the outdoors, I might want to eat the little fellow…but since I’m fed and loved, why shouldn’t he be also? So I decided that I should let them know about the little chirper and save the day! It feels good to be a heroine sometimes. Although it’s still pretty fun to drop a bird at the feet of the hoomans we love, isn’t it? MOL…(**MOL= meow out loud)
I didn’t have a very purrfect day on Caturday! I was laying in mommy’s arms and she was giving me love. It was such a wondfurful Caturday morning and then daddy was worrying me a little…I perked my ears up and my whiskers moved and my eyes got as big as saucers….He’s usually a pretty good daddy and he loves me, so I trust him…It’s hard for me to trust because I came from a bad and abusive hoarders home.  I trust him none the less…but he came from nowhere and whisked me into this black nylon “purse” thing (carrying crate)! I didn’t know where I was going or what was going to happen to me. I was being very brave continuing to trust this hooman who’s not my #1 but my #2 hooman! We left mommy at home…she was letting water come out of some holes on her face! She seemed very sad so I didn’t know if I should worry about her or worry about me!???
We drove awhile but daddy was reassuring. He touched the open sides of the “purse thing” and spoke softly and gently to me. We arrived at our destination and there were about 7 animals in a line and then daddy was very smart!! He had brought a fold up chair and put me in my case on his lap. We stayed there for a long time until they called my name “LUNA STEWART”!??!! Daddy got up and took me into a room, that looked vaguely familiar! This nice man and lady petted me and spoke softly to me and I sorta liked it and I was purring…UNTIL SUDDENLY….the man picked me up like I used to pick up my babies in the back of the neck!! I was thinking “WOAAAHHH…HOLD ON THERE BUDDY!! Do you know who I am?? I’m Luna….Queen of the House!!” He pretty much told me that I was not Queen of his house..MOL…then he POKED ME IN THE BEHIND!!! Much to my surprise!! I hissed at him because it all happened so fast and it kinda smarts!! OUCHHHHHHEY WAAA WAAA!!
Finally, after 2 whole hours (because it was the low cost shot clinic day and everyone was there and there feline brother and their canine sister and all of their feline and canine aunts, uncles, kids, cousins and everyone else who cannot afford the $52.00 exam fee AND the shot fee, were there! Everyone was standing in this long line that went out to the street! I mean there were cats and dogs of all breed, shape and size! A nice German shepherd came up to my little “window” on my “purse” and she said “Hi” to me …and I said “Meap” to him…he was OK…but then this big burly dog with a spiked collar came up to me and I scratched and hissed at him through my cage! *Daddy thinks maybe this was the kind of dogs that were at the “hoarders” house where I used to live?? The dogs were starved and they started thinking of us Felines as “dinner”…and I mean it…some of my BFF’s were “dinner” for some hungry Pit Bulls! It wasn’t really their fault, I was hungry also!! But just the same, I didn’t want him near me!!! ( OH and BTW..just FYI…I mean…if something happened to me (God Forbid)..Mommy and daddy have an insurance card for just me…but for medical emergencies and stuff that I hope to never have! So I will always be taken good care of…but they didn’t really have the extra money for the cost of the exam AND my 3 year distemper booster shot!)
After all of that…the Dr and the nurse petted me afterwards, and all was well in the world again and I sounded like a freight train, they told daddy; because I was purring so loudly! MOL…MOL…We went home and we walked in …well Daddy walked in and I was still in the ridiculous “purse” thingy! Mommy was waiting for us, especially for ME…MOL…she gave me my breaf-gast and I gobbled it up slurping all the way!!! Then I went to my spots: the side window…the door wall window…the bay window seat box with the fluffy pillow for me to lounge all day on!!! Everything was as it should be….except….my mommy had wet eyes??? HMMM…Not sure what that’s for?? But all in all, I’m “HOME” and that’s all that matters…..What I learned today…or on Caturday…was just one more lesson on “trust”. I trust them more now because they took me out and brought me back to my furrever home, where mommy was waiting for me!!! I was so happy to see her and eat my “breaf-gast…..she pet me awhile and and snuggled on me and gave me another drink from the silver spout that is in their hooman’s “eating room”. That silver thing that water comes out of and I either bat at it or drink, depending on my mood or thirst levels!
Thank you for coming to my “Kitty Cat Diaries”….I’m learning about trust more and more each day that goes by and they show me how much they love me!! G’nite Furrriends!!! Purr at ‘cha later!
Love, Luna Skye
