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 !

Patience Is a “Fur”tue…

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!
