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 !!

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..
