Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve been here because I’ve just been a lazy cat! You know how it is, chasing little lady bugs and eating, sleeping & just trying to look purrrrty for everyone; is a job in & of itself! I’ve been doing just those things and it’s full time!
No, honestly I’m thinking my Meowmy must’ve just been super busy? She has to allow me my computer time ya know? She was sick a lot since August also! But I’m baaack! I’m here to stay and very happy to see new followers! Thank you so much! I’ll try to share my most interesting stories with you!
Do you remember how I started life out in an abusive home? I’ve never enjoyed food and I don’t love wet food like most kitty’s. I have never liked treats either! Something must’ve happened to me that I don’t remember? I do know that I was in a hoarders home and I was abused, though….the first 1 1/2 years of my Little life! But then I found my pawrents! Everything has been so much better since we found each other! But, still… my Meowmy has tried so many different treats and she’s just wasted money after money because I don’t like any treats! I never have!!
Wellll until now!! Meowmy finally hit the “jackpot”, and she finally found some treats that I like! But…..then ……now I have totally stopped eating wet food of even the best kinds!! But she got me a special kind of treat stick called “Sheeba”! She breaks it in half and gives me 2 halves each day now! I get really excited and I cannot wait for them to eat breakfast! I get one snack then and one snack later in the evening! I’m not sure why she’s so excited? But I sure am happy!! I even play with the treat a little bit before eating it!! MOL…(do you know that “MOL” is “Meow out loud”? ) … ohhh and there’s another treat that they found for me and I cannot even believe that I also like the little pieces of real tuna and real salmon! I cannot remember the brand name of those? But I’ll tell you the next time we hang out together, OK?
Well, I just wanted to share the great news about Miss Finicky, me, actually eating & enjoying treats for about the past 2 months or so? I guess you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!!!? But you can still teach a smart, (almost 8 year old) cat, to like treats!!! After years of my forever not liking them, I really do!
Thank you so much for your Friendship and your patience (& most of all for following me/is/,! I love you 💕 so much! You are Pawsome!! 🤟🏼🦋
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..
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!
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.

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!

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!!
