Licky, Licky…

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..

Patience Is a “Fur”tue…

Photo Apr 11, 5 00 26 PM

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!

The Chemo-Angel Kitty

Hi…my name is Luna…and I want to tell you about my life just a little bit. I don’t think you should turn the page now because you think it’s going to be boring. I am anything but boring, I promise you that. I am “Angel Kitty Luna Skye”. I am a Chemo-angel Kitty cat. I am an all white domestic mix of short/medium hair. I have had 2 kittens and I got them and me out of a hoarders house to save us. It wasn’t their fault, but the doggies were eating my furriends. They were hungry and their instinct made them kill us to eat. There were 28 other kitty’s or so …and about 10-12 dogs. I got out one day and hid in a neighbors backyard deck. I had my kittens and nursed them and then someone found me /us. At first I was very worried because I was taken back to the human hoarders house, because the neighbors found us under their deck and took us back where they thought I lived. But as soon as they saw some of the conditions, they called the Huron Valley Humane Society in Ann Arbor, MI. This was in or about July 2011.
Soon, a bunch of people came and took my other furriends and me to a place where they took care of us and fed us and we got cuddles. Then, because I was nursing and sick and underweight (only less than 5 lbs and one year old); I got to go to a foster home. I stayed there for 6 months and then I was adopted by my mommy and daddy. I’ve lived with my mommy and daddy now for 15 months and I am having a great life now! If you read some of my other blog posts, you can see my daily diary and find out the fun I have every day now and the love I give and receive.
So my mommy has been a Chemo-angel since 2006 or so. It is a non profit org. online which was started by one woman and has become something very wonderful. You see, it doesn’t matter what age that someone gets that scarey diagnosis of “Cancer”; it’s scarey regardless. My mommy’s mommy passed away of colon cancer in 2002 and she has had several aunts and Uncles pass away also from different cancers. So mommy found out about the Chemo-angels and she filled out the forms and became one. She got her first “buddy” and it went from there. Mommy is still friends with most of her ex-chemo-angel buddies. She’s had many because she is also a special assignment “angel” and a Prayer “angel” for the program.
When I came along, it took me about a year to become the more comfortable, affectionate kitty cat that I am today. I was very scared and skiddish and didn’t like much attention. I was kind of a loner but still liked to know that someone was home with me. So a while back, mommy got her first child chemo-angel buddy. It is a little girl and she is only 3 years old. She has 2 sisters and one is older and one is younger. She has a mommy and a daddy and everyone loves her and we are all fighting for her!! So mommy thought to herself …”what could I say or do with a child that would make or could make this any easier or better….even if only a little bit?”
That’s where I come in!! Mommy asked me to be this little girls Chemo-angel and now I am “Angel Kitty Luna Skye” and I have my own facebook page and my own pet celebrity facebook page! You can find me on facebook under the pages at “Angel Kitty Luna Skye”. I put up pictures and lots of people come and look and they “like” my page. Sometimes I make new facebook friends and furrriends!! Now, since the little girl is only 3, I have to be inventive and I send her fun little gifts and toys to cheer her up and make her smile. You send uplifting cards, smaller gifts, toys and stuff to keep them happy, or busy in the hospital during chemo therapy treatments etc. I send things like : bookmarks, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, jump ropes, sun glasses, pj’s, coloring books and pages and markers, crayons, jewelry and other fun things that mommy comes up with for me to send to her. She loves getting pictures of me and seeing my video’s now on facebook. Her mommy can show her my pictures and videos easily now because she found my mommy on there and they are friends and so am I now.
I love being a “celebrity” pet and having my story told and my photo’s out there in the world. I was “cat denmaster” for the month of December on Catster magazines group. I was also the “diary of the day” last year about the same time, at Easter. There’s a nice cat there on Catster, who makes cool pictures of me and the other kitties, in cool looking frames and he puts my photo in there and sends it to mommy. She loves it and now she is trying to make some of those photos too. I think it would be much more fun, if I was a little child, to get mail from a Kitty than a 52 year old mommy and grandma! MOL….MOL…..(*that is “Meow out loud”)…Im the best kitty in the world and I’m just so cute and precious. I am very persnic- KITTY!! I stand and look out the window like one of those little “cabbage patch kid that you see at the art shows. The ones that stand like they are looking out of a window. Have you seen those before?? They are like backwards and looking out a window but it looks like I’m a real baby or toddler..MOL
I hope you enjoy my photos, blog posts and video’s because I know that I really enjoy you coming here and taking your time to read posts about me and looking at my pictures and video’s. Please feel free to look up the Chemo-angel program at: http://www.chemoangels.com . Also, feel free to look me up on my facebook page at: Angel Kitty Luna Skye ! My Catster profile is at: http://www.catster.com/cats/1289866 come and see me some time!!

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,
