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 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!

A Cat’s Eye View…


Hi Furrriends,

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. My “Catster address is on this blogs pages…you’ll see it up there someplace.  My Facebook page is at:  go there and come check me out, ok? If and when you arrive, could you and would you please just “LIKE” the page for me? Mommy told me to ask you that, because I don’t really care; I only care about people and other furry critters…so I send you my kitty love….

Bye for now, Angel Kitty Luna Skye20140307-094823.jpg
