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!

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..

The Chemo-Angel Kitty

Hi…my name is Luna…and I want to tell you about my life just a little bit. I don’t think you should turn the page now because you think it’s going to be boring. I am anything but boring, I promise you that. I am “Angel Kitty Luna Skye”. I am a Chemo-angel Kitty cat. I am an all white domestic mix of short/medium hair. I have had 2 kittens and I got them and me out of a hoarders house to save us. It wasn’t their fault, but the doggies were eating my furriends. They were hungry and their instinct made them kill us to eat. There were 28 other kitty’s or so …and about 10-12 dogs. I got out one day and hid in a neighbors backyard deck. I had my kittens and nursed them and then someone found me /us. At first I was very worried because I was taken back to the human hoarders house, because the neighbors found us under their deck and took us back where they thought I lived. But as soon as they saw some of the conditions, they called the Huron Valley Humane Society in Ann Arbor, MI. This was in or about July 2011.
Soon, a bunch of people came and took my other furriends and me to a place where they took care of us and fed us and we got cuddles. Then, because I was nursing and sick and underweight (only less than 5 lbs and one year old); I got to go to a foster home. I stayed there for 6 months and then I was adopted by my mommy and daddy. I’ve lived with my mommy and daddy now for 15 months and I am having a great life now! If you read some of my other blog posts, you can see my daily diary and find out the fun I have every day now and the love I give and receive.
So my mommy has been a Chemo-angel since 2006 or so. It is a non profit org. online which was started by one woman and has become something very wonderful. You see, it doesn’t matter what age that someone gets that scarey diagnosis of “Cancer”; it’s scarey regardless. My mommy’s mommy passed away of colon cancer in 2002 and she has had several aunts and Uncles pass away also from different cancers. So mommy found out about the Chemo-angels and she filled out the forms and became one. She got her first “buddy” and it went from there. Mommy is still friends with most of her ex-chemo-angel buddies. She’s had many because she is also a special assignment “angel” and a Prayer “angel” for the program.
When I came along, it took me about a year to become the more comfortable, affectionate kitty cat that I am today. I was very scared and skiddish and didn’t like much attention. I was kind of a loner but still liked to know that someone was home with me. So a while back, mommy got her first child chemo-angel buddy. It is a little girl and she is only 3 years old. She has 2 sisters and one is older and one is younger. She has a mommy and a daddy and everyone loves her and we are all fighting for her!! So mommy thought to herself …”what could I say or do with a child that would make or could make this any easier or better….even if only a little bit?”
That’s where I come in!! Mommy asked me to be this little girls Chemo-angel and now I am “Angel Kitty Luna Skye” and I have my own facebook page and my own pet celebrity facebook page! You can find me on facebook under the pages at “Angel Kitty Luna Skye”. I put up pictures and lots of people come and look and they “like” my page. Sometimes I make new facebook friends and furrriends!! Now, since the little girl is only 3, I have to be inventive and I send her fun little gifts and toys to cheer her up and make her smile. You send uplifting cards, smaller gifts, toys and stuff to keep them happy, or busy in the hospital during chemo therapy treatments etc. I send things like : bookmarks, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, jump ropes, sun glasses, pj’s, coloring books and pages and markers, crayons, jewelry and other fun things that mommy comes up with for me to send to her. She loves getting pictures of me and seeing my video’s now on facebook. Her mommy can show her my pictures and videos easily now because she found my mommy on there and they are friends and so am I now.
I love being a “celebrity” pet and having my story told and my photo’s out there in the world. I was “cat denmaster” for the month of December on Catster magazines group. I was also the “diary of the day” last year about the same time, at Easter. There’s a nice cat there on Catster, who makes cool pictures of me and the other kitties, in cool looking frames and he puts my photo in there and sends it to mommy. She loves it and now she is trying to make some of those photos too. I think it would be much more fun, if I was a little child, to get mail from a Kitty than a 52 year old mommy and grandma! MOL….MOL…..(*that is “Meow out loud”)…Im the best kitty in the world and I’m just so cute and precious. I am very persnic- KITTY!! I stand and look out the window like one of those little “cabbage patch kid that you see at the art shows. The ones that stand like they are looking out of a window. Have you seen those before?? They are like backwards and looking out a window but it looks like I’m a real baby or toddler..MOL
I hope you enjoy my photos, blog posts and video’s because I know that I really enjoy you coming here and taking your time to read posts about me and looking at my pictures and video’s. Please feel free to look up the Chemo-angel program at: http://www.chemoangels.com . Also, feel free to look me up on my facebook page at: Angel Kitty Luna Skye !
