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.

Hello All Puursons and Felines:
If I had a diary (which I do! (shhhhhh don’t tell Mom!) …it would go something like this:
Oh My Gosh! Luna’s Diary journal entry :
5;45 am: Get up! The alarms going off in 30 minutes, I can’t wait that long! Plus…I want to be FIRST!
6:20 am: Luna’s really mad now because we waited for the real alarm clock to go off before we actually get out of bed….well…Dad did anyways…Mom’s a pushover and Luna knows how to melt her heart….or is it those butt scratches Luna wants….right in moms face….so she finally just gets up anyways
7:30 am: Luna actually eats her breakfast, even though demanding it at 5:45 am….she really wasn’t THAT hungry!
8:00-11:00 am: watch mom clean litter box….then poop….watch mom waiting for that poop, she cleans it up ….I pee!! Then Luna grooms, bathes, watches birds & watches the dog next door poop…then a nap!
11:30 am dad comes home for lunch…Luna wakes up….runs to greet him and then runs away just after he bends down with his sore ack, to pet her!
12:15 pm: mom goes on her gadgets or iOS devices! “Oh no you don’t!!”….Luna wishes to play and finds every cute little face and guilt trip in the book until she gets mommy to play…again….oh…did I forget to mention that mommy always plays with me after breakfast too? That’s just after eating but before my self-grooming”bath”!
1:00-4:00 pm: drink water, pee, look out the side window, look out the back window, eat a dry food snack…..drink water….pee….poop..look out the front window….Oh My Gosh! All of this watching, peeing and pooping is tiring Luna out!
5:00 pm: dinner time….nope ..no..nope..Luna doesn’t like “minced” why can’t you people remember?
5:20 pm: mom finally gets Luna her favorite kinds of wet foods!! Oh happy day!! Luna is happy kitty with a full tummy once more!
6:00pm: Luna grooms herself, hides under the couch the whole evening just to get away from that darned loud box, they call a “T.V,” and falls asleep just before mom and dad go up the stairs to their bedroom….or..um….Luna’s bedroom…
11:00 pm: Luna gets carried upstairs in a laundry basket and gets put on her/ their big bed……Luna crawls into the “no handle” paper bag that is on her/their bed!!
**11:30 pm: (mom puts paper bag WITH LUNA IN IT CURLED UP LIKE A TOY…..onto her tummy….(hey a moms gotta get her cuddles however she can get
Them!…when it comes to this kitty!)……We all sleep…zzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzz
2:00am: Luna squirms out of the bag and crawls up under moms armpit with her little chin on mommy’s arm ….and sleeps….and the world is right once more….for awhile…hmmmmmmmph!
Love, Luna…everyone’s purrrr-friend!
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
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,
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!
