Dear Diary, It’s All Up To Me!

Dear Diary,

I know that I can be all stuck up and everything……but I can be in your face kind of cute, too! I can’t decide if I get lonely sometimes or if I enjoy ruling the roost? I mean, sure, I think about it but then I don’t know what I want? I just kind of like my life the way it is. Sometimes my “people” talk about getting another kitty or even a dog!  I’m just not quite sure what I want? I remember at my foster home, they had 3 little girls that I used to sleep with. You couldn’t tell them apart!! They all looked exactly like the other!! They were all 3 the same age and they were little, but not so little that I was afraid of them! That home had 4 furry creatures lurking around that barked a lot! They had several other furry beauties that looked more like me, but not quite as beautiful of course.  We all got along pretty well! I’m just not sure what I want for now bcz I really like my life the way it is!!!

I do wish my Meommy would feel better, though; because she’s my person! I mostly sit and sun myself in the window seat or In my brand new delux ginormous kitty tree! I do my kitty “yoga” (a kitty’s  gotta stay fit, ya know??).  I also run around up and down the stairs chasing my “baby” and toss it up in the air!!  All the while I’m keeping Meommy & daddy awake sometimes during the night.   You see, my “baby” is the first toy that I ever got, here at my “new” forever home. I love to play, and gosh I am already going to be 7 years old on July 28, 2017!! I know I’m just a young lil’ thing!!!

Do any of you kitties have a “Meommy” that doesn’t feel well often, like mine?  I still like to truly take care of my needs and then my wants.  But then whenever I feel like it, I can jump up into Meoemmy’s lap or her chair to give & get some good cuddles! I must try to remember to do that more often because it really does feel nice!  I know she likes it too because her mouth curls up all funny and she starts petting me! I do love that I must say!!

So I guess I have two things to tell you all, today! The first, is that even though you think you’re getting a “furrriend” for your fur baby…… NOPE…it’s for you!  I’m just sayin’! I’m good either way, but I’m pretty sure I would just tolerate it for your sake! The other thing that I want to tell the other fur babies is this: you need to try and be a little cognizant of your people and how much they love you! I know mine love me so much! So in saying that, lets all try to be just a bit more loving & cuddly, OK??  I mean they do feed us (yes, I do know they sometimes try to clothe us…ugggh thank goodness I don’t have to deal with that! I pity those of you who do!!)….and if your people are anything like mine, I get spoiled! So, OK….so they have to feed us! But I must give my people a little bit of credit because I get the best of the best food and the put my water bowl in the freezer so that my water is icy chilled and so yummy! I also just have to jump up in the counter top, by the big water bowl; and they turn on the never ending water that I ❤️ love! It’s so delicious…yummmm!

I got a little off track, as usual.  But what I really wanted to tell you was just give more kitty love!!  They just eat it up and then it’s really sooooo good for us too! Don’t tell them that…shhhh!! Ok??? So go jump up on your Meommy or daddy’s lap & give some great eye kisses, the kind that say “I love you!” Then rest awhile by using their body for the warmth that we all love! Go on now….shooo!!!! Yes, you… get up and give some love!! Bye now!! See you next time that I feel like saying something!!

Love, Luna Skye

This is me resting my weary head on my “baby”! Remember my favorite toy? The one that I toss into the air and make all kinds of noise with!!

Bye for now Luvs!!

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!

Breaf-gast and sleeping arrangements!!

Hellooo Furriends,

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,
