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!!
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!
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!
Purrrr to all !! Well You know me … I mean maybe you do or you maybe don’t? But you’ll get to know me better if you read my awesome story! I truly have an amazing story because I was at a bad home and then foster care for 6 mos and I had two babies! They got to go together to their furrrever home, and boy…am I glad! Now I’ve been with my mommy and daddy since Jan 29, 2013! It’s been about 15 months and I think Im going to keep them!!
I have two stories to tell you ! First of all I GOT A FLY TODAY!! I went to get mommy and I got her to follow me. We were at the big doorwall window and there was a fly! Imagine in your mind how pawesome I am because this is what happened next…. “WHOOOOOSH” one swipe of my paw and I got that fly!!! One swipe!!! Yep I put up my paw way up high and it went a bit “loopy” on me but it was a great play toy for a few moments! Mommy was hyperventilating because she felt sorry for that silly ‘ol fly!! Doesn’t she know Im a “meat-a-vore” you know…the opposite of “veg-a-vore”??? Well then I got to really entertain mommy and daddy! I know they’re so proud of me! So I kept toying with that little critter for a few! I put it in my mouth, roll it around…spit it out! I did that a few times (and I know mommy was waiting for me to bring it to her as a gift, like usual, but “WOOOP THERE IT WENT!!! In the mouth…roll it around “MMMMM” and “snap”!! It was gone, vamoose, adios.., yayyyy for me!!! Us know Im the finicky cat that eats for no one and only what I like, when I like it and where I like it…. Most of all the way I like it! That was one yummy fly!! Mommy was aghast!!! Daddy was cracking up!!! I was mostly just “full”! Haha MOL!!
Then…now that I had all that extra protein all of that extra energy… It was time for playing “peek a boo” with mommy!! Mol mol…she hides and pops up and says “ppeeek!!”or “peek a boo!” And then I run and hide and I pop out of a box or from behind a wall!!! Then she tries to do the same and then daddy decides to play and there we are,… all. 3 of us running around the house playing “Peek a boo”!! It must look really funny to other hoomans!!! Yea … MOL…they think they were “running around” and playing with me, but I’d say it was more like a “shuffle” they do Not a good run like me!!! “I’m the Queen of the house I say” as they’re sprawled out on the couch ready for a good nights sleep!!!!… While I’m just getting started for the night! Gotta go do some more fly swiping and bug chasing !!! Hahaha love, Luna xx
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,
