It’s such exciting news that I just have to share! It been super cold and frigid temps here in Michigan! That Winter Storm “Jaden”, has brought temperatures of -12 and wind chill warnings of -40 !! Isn’t that crazy?? I feel sorry for any outdoor kitties who don’t have a warm bed to sleep in especially now!
Speaking of beds… I just got the first bed that I’ve ever really loved and actually like to sleep inside of. It looks like a fuzzy mouse and it’s all Crinkly inside! I’m calling it my new “I” Pad! It belongs to me, myself & “I” and it’s my new pad! So therefore it’s an “I” Pad! Baaahhaaahaaa!! Wellll, okay, so humor isn’t my best trait?? You can’t have it all. I mean, I lve got the brains and the beauty! If I’m a bit deficient in the “catmedian” department??? I can’t have it all! Mol..(Meow out loud)…maybe I shall leave the jokes to the Siamese or the orange “Tabbys”? They’re a funny sort of kitty (like Morris, remember “Morris” the cat on TV commercials?) ! I’ll share a picture with you today so you can see how cool it is!!
So yes, I got the new bed and for Christmas, Santa Paws brought me an interactive crinkly round sort of bed (from Pet Links)! I can curl up in it and play in and with it! I really like it! It came with 2 little mice that I also enjoy tossing around a bit! I may be going in 9 years old this July of 2019; but I still love to play!
I used to always be a bit OCD; and I licked plastic bags that my Meowmy put down for me because I enjoyed laying on them too! So I guess that hurt my mouth and gave me bad sores when I licked on the plastic bags! So now my Pawrents also got me a crinkly denim and burlap bag!! I have so much cool , new stuff that I don’t even know what to do?? I just take turns! Oh oh ohhhh!!! I almost forgot to share that I also got a cool crinkly but foldable (for traveling) goldfish bed too! It’s great for tossing in a suitcase or something like that?
Anyways, I’m doing really well and I hope that you are too! I still am enjoying those “Sheba” sticks treats & now my new beds! Here are the photos I promised! (Goldfish one next time because it’s in the basement and I just don’t feel like going down the basement to get it just so I can show you!!
Sending love and kitty cat snuggles!!
Love, Luna Skye!
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!! 🤟🏼🦋
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
Above is Meeee inside of a bag, a very cool bag!
Bye for now Luvs!!
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!
