Dear Kitty Cat Diary…
Gosh I’m so sorry that it’s been such a very long time since I’ve written here to you. I am a very busy kitty and I have so much to do you know? I have to lay in the sun and sit on my kitty tree…..and then there’s napping, tugging and chasing little bugs wherever I can find them. If I cannot find them, I manufacture them in my mind. No, really….it’s true! I think my mommy thinks I’m crazy because when I get really bored, I try to give her the creeps and scare her. It’s really fun late at night when daddy is already asleep and mommy is up watching TV or playing online. I stare at the wall near our front door and I totally freak her out as I stare and then jump at the wall as if something is really inside of it. Honestly, nothing is inside of the wall because they’ve checked and double checked. Daddy says there’s probably squirrels on the porch that are making me a little frisky late at night.
So we just finished Christmas with that time of the year when they put a tree right in the middle of the house! I love to get up into the middle of that tree and pull stuff down, especially the tree itself! But then, they go and get this stinky spray and it makes me run away and stay far away from that thing. Then we have that day when everyone comes over and I’m not your social butterfly, honestly. You think I’m pretty friendly here, because this is where I write my fun thoughts and all the stuff that happens to me. I am very friendly, loving and a very good girl; but I just don’t like excitement or a whole bunch of people around. I especially only like children from a distance! I love to be “Angel Kitty Luna” and send the sick children letters, photos and fun little toys to cheer them. But the kids that come around here are really small and super loud; in fact they scream very very loudly! When they come over, I run and hide under the bed….MOL.
I love the holidays because daddy is home for a long time and then mommy and daddy stay up late with me. They stay home often and I get lots of snuggles. I’m not your normal snuggly kind of feline. I do not enjoy being picked up and hugged but I don’t mind hugs and kisses if I pick the time and place. Most of all I like to lay in my mommy’s lap and sleep all cuddled up….but….only when I CHOOSE to do so! She would like me to sleep on her all the time but I like to be picky about the timing of my snuggles. I also have a little trick that I like to do. When they pick up their keys to go out the door, I jump onto the counter top and start licking the water faucet. I think they’ve got my “number” now though! They have started to turn on the water before they go out, as they are putting on their coats, shoes etc. I had them going for awhile though! I used to make them late for everything and put off their time of leaving me alone. I put off the feeling that I am a “loner” but I truly am a lover and don’t tell anyone, but I really do like to cuddle on my mommy!
Well, 2017 is just around the corner! I cannot believe I will be 7 years old this coming July 25th! I have been here with my pawrents for 4 years on January 29th! I know that everyone is supposed to have something for the “New Year”, some kind of resolution or something they are going to do differently. Well, I’ve decided to join a Cat group! How about that? It is called “Cat Scouts” and it is at “catscouts.com” and I am excited about it. I actually joined awhile back, but have not really become a full member until just today. Mommy got me my own profile page and joined some groups for me today. We even put some pictures up and I’ve made a few new furriends! I’m pretty excited about being a “Cat Scout”. So I will let you know how it goes! I really hope that it doesn’t go like most New Year’s resolutions go….and that means…by the wayside!! MOL…noooooo way….My mommy is a fun one and we will do lots with the Cat Scouts! So “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to all of you, my special furriends who come here to visit me. I will try to write more often and I’m sorry that it has been so long between posts this time. We will do better and I will get my mommy to come here and let you know what’s going on with me more often. Loads of Kitty love to you all!!! Come back and see me again soon!
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 !!

Love, Luna Skye
