Oh my gosh...Life was hard...I lived at a bad person's house. They had too many animals and they didn't take good care of me. I have had 2 kittens and they were with me the day that the nice people came and took me away from there. I was always hungry, too. I went to my foster mom's home. She was really nice and she loved me. She had some other furry friends for me there to play with. She called me "Cora" or sometimes she would say "your ladyship, Lady Grantham" (from the show "Downton Abbey). I stayed with my foster mom until they put the bad people in jail.
Next, I got taken from my foster mom and had to leave my kittens. That was a hard day. Mostly because I didn't want to leave my babies. I went with a really pretty lady and a nice lady too. She took me to her home and there I stayed in a pretty and comfortable room for a few weeks. It was really quiet, but she was really kind to me and cuddled me lots. There was another furry cat at this house. Only one and she was a black cat, her name was "Sutton". She ruled the roost and she just didn't want me around. Honestly, I didn't want her around much either! So the nice girl decided to ask her parents what to do and they wanted me!!
I'm so happy that they wanted me because I still get to see that nice girl, but I don't have to see that mean cat anymore! (Well, I think she's mean but everyone else loves her...ha ha)...I love my new home! I have a bunch of stairs to run up and down each day. I go "zoom zoom zoom" all over those stairs! I love my wet food, but because I didn't get much or food or water in my first home, I tend to eat it too fast and then I throw up. So my new mom, my forever mom, Suzanne; she only lets me have a little bit at a time now and it helps me not to throw up. I love Suzanne and her husband, Craig. They love me and we are now a family! I have my OWN family now! I'm so happy! I sit and bask in the sunshine of their bay window or the back sliding door window. I eat good food and get loads of cuddles. Of course I get them, when "I" want them! LOL...I love to play with my "baby"...its a washcloth toy with a little face. I have my "people" trained to throw it and say "WEEEEEE" down the stairs and then I like to run after it.
Well, that's enough for today...more later....Love, Luna...the "lady" of the house

Well I don't see what all this fuss about a "bunny" going to everyone's house, and "hopping" around, dropping off colored eggs & giving out candy to my peoples'? You must realize that somebunny just goofed up, because we all know it's really an Easter "Kitty"! Kitty's like us are much smarter and have much more energy than a silly bunny has! They've just got it all wrong! I just know it's an Easter Kitty!
Just for instance, there was this one kitty, my mommy was reading about, in that paper with the black and white words on it (I think she calls it a "snooze-paper", cuz daddy always snoozes while reading it)! She was saying that this one kitty lost his peoples'; and it was when they were all on a "playcation" together! But that kitty found his way 190 miles back within 10 miles of his home!! He did it all by himself without a map even! They were all reunited because he had "a chip on his shoulder"! (hmmm...I suppose I can imagine why would he have a "chip" on his shoulder? That's a very long way to walk!) Or maybe they said he had a "chip IN his shoulder, like the chip I have in my shoulder now so I can never be cold & hungry again!! Well either way, it just goes to show you that one of us felines, could really be the purrr-fect "Easter Kitty"! Someone should really lick into this!
Well, the Easter "Kitty" came to my house last night and for some reason, this morning, my peoples' got all dressed up ....they went away for awhile, really early...I might add! I mean we didn't even get to play my morning "weeeeeeee" game, where they throw my "washcloth baby" down the stairs...and then I pounce on it, Zoom Zoom Zoom around the house & then do my morning calisthenics !
They were dressed oddly, because my mommy had her legs covered in this shiny, silky stuff with funny shoes on that "clicked" when she walked! Daddy had his "dress up for work" pants on & shiny shoes too! When they got back to my house...er..."our" house, they were jibber jabbering about a "King"..."a Savior"...but the strangest thing was that they said they were happy because this King who had "risen"! from the dead. That's even better than a kitty traveling 190 miles! Anyway,they were all dressed up and I could just smell a celebration in the kitchen. Then that younger, pretty girl (who I lived with for awhile after I left my foster mom, but before I came "home" to live with "Mommy & Daddy")and her "young man" came over; but I was kinda getting jealous because she kept on calling "MY MOMMY"..."Momma or Mommy"!!!
Also.... what did they mean? Why were they all excited about a "King"? How did that "people" they were talking about, rise up into the sky? I can jump pretty high into the sky, and in fact "Skye" is my new middle name!....what does this all mean?
I guess I'll just enjoy all of the attention I've been getting and let them celebrate their people "joy"! Maybe by next year I'll be able to figure out a way to tell them about the "Easter Kitty" ? Maybe by then, I'll understand more about the King who rose into the sky to sit next to his father?
Thank you for visiting me and my page.....you've been purrrrfect guests!
Love.... Luna, the Lady of the house

Hello kitty lovers & Kitties!
I was so excited to find out that Ive been making fuuurrrrriends here! I am a very skittsh Cat and I've been through so much scary stuff! I used to live in a home that made me afraid every day . I never knew if I was going to be fed or find any good water to drink. Therewere soooo many other cats there....my old mommy & daddy got in trouble, they are in jail now! The good policeman call them "animal hoarders". The bad mommy & daddy let the big , hungry dogs attack me an some of my furrrriends. I got worried when I had my kittens, i wanted to protect them, so I stayed outdoors with them as much as possible! I could hunt sometimes but I needed to have milk for my kittens andthat was starting to dry up because I didnt have enough food! A nice neighbor found my babies and me, starving, and she put us in a small , safe space all together and then took us back to the bad people and told them to feed us. I was worried but I didnt know that the neighbor called the men in blue shirts with loud cars! Some people and the blue shirted men, came and rescued all of my friends and all of us had to be kept someplace, and some different places during 6 months of litigation! The bad mommy and daddy went to jail and all of my friends and me, got foster homes fr 6 months! Just when I was getting attached and feeling safe, the new, loving mommy let me go home with this pretty girl.
I had gotten to keep my babies for 7 months or so! Im not sure if I only had 2 babies at the beginning, but I had 2 babies when the neighbor found me! If I could really speak" human", I would have a very long and sad...and scary tale to tell! But I have 8 lives left...and just because that one didn't work well; this one seems to be getting safer, more purrrfect in every way...every day!
I didnt get to stay with that pretty girl for long, because her cat, "Sutton" , who's now my niece, didnt like me much and couldn't get over it! Sooooo, Sutton's grammy (who is now my "forever mommy") told her daughter, that pretty girl, to bring me over to their house.
Sutton's a loving and wonderful "grandkitty", she's loving and kind, but both of us just weren't interested in making friends. So I was taken to Sutton's "Grammy" & "Grampy's home and they have been so happy since Arrived! They say thatthey all sort of "rescued me" ....but....my forever mommy, Suzanne, she's very ill with many painful health issues. She has a progressive autoimmune nerve pain disease called "RSD/CRPSII"( complex regional pain syndrome type II - which means that a nerve was cut during her 7th surgery of 9 otal so far! I found out that she was also abused! We are kindred spirits I think, in that way ,...& we undertnd each other! At first, she and I both wanted to love and be loved....but we both were scared, skittish, and "needy"....i kept a bit of distance and I would push in and then pull away! My forever mom understood and understands my needs. We are both such good friends now! She was patient with me, and understood my deepest fears! She knew what it was like to be starved and hurt! She and her hubby, my forever daddy ...finally found love and "soul-mates in eachother and now we've all become "a real family". We are now 3 "soul mates", even though mommy is "my " person, we all love eachother, respect eachother and we live happily ever after in my forever family and home!!!!
Just one more thing....my forever mommy was pretty sad, in lots of physical pain and has no real "familiy" except my forever daddy...and her daughter, that pretty girl. They say that she "rescued" me!!! But in this situation...hmmmm ....WHO RESCUED WHO???

Hi my purrrfect friends,
My mommy was wondering if anyone knows alot about cats? I'm a rescue cat and I'm 21/2 yrs old. I've been with my new mommy & daddy since jan 29th but I've vomitted (a large amount)alot...3 times now! I usually get a little lethargic and don't want to be near mommy and daddy (but I'll still chase a stringy mouse!)!! Do you think it's Ok? I was at the vet in jan...& I was spayed snd all shots are up to date!
I'm really unpredictable because sometimes I sit with mommy and other times I'm still very skittish of everything..mommy had a cat once before and "Puma" never vomitted and so mommy's wi
Wurrrried!! Can anyone chime in on this please? Oh and I only hacked a little that 1st time I threw up and it was dry! These last 2times it's been after canned food treat and only fish kind both to
Times... Thank you and love from, Luna

Dear Purrrfect friends
Hello....I'm feeling all better now..yay!! My mommy called my foster mommy who took care of me for the first 6 mos. while my "bad" parents were in litigation for jail. They are in jail now and that is good because they were bad. But all that aside....my tummy went through alot, my foster mom told mommy. I was throwing up last week a couple of times and still hiding more than I was since I got here but other than that, everything is good now. My mommy was just not sure about how to feed a special tummy kitty like me...So my foster mommy told mommy to just give me 1/2 cup in the morning of dry food and then 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup in the evening ...and both times or one of the times I get to have 1/2 of a 3 oz can of wet food...
Soo after a day or two of eating like this, I was doing so much better. But because I threw up in the living room..my favorite room...and near my little cube that I loved to play in and with...I don't want to go near it now. Mommy's feeling a bit worried still but I think I'm OK...Daddy says Mommy worries too much about me...Mommy says she can see my tummy move like a big muscle spasm after I eat sometimes...??? Anyone know if that is just OK? My foster mom never saw it, I dont think? She didn't mention it? Well, I'm also hiding behind the couch lately. I found a new spot that I like. Mommy thinks its strange because I always have been "OUT" where they are since I arrived except for a little bit under the couch when I first got home and when the TV was kind of loud....but not anymore...until the other day...hmmm??? I'll keep you posted my purrrffect friends....love and puurr kitty hugs....love to you, Luna Skye.... ^>.

Sorry I've been a little bit "MIA"(not literally)...I had a little tummy trouble , which we fixed with a dietary switch...so far so good...cross your paws!! Then my new mommy fell down in a "Pet Supplies Plus"! It wasn't anybody's fault because mommy has a painful nerve disease and she falls. But we were a little out of touch with everyone for awhile! But we are baaaack! I hope you gals N guys remember me still? Did you know that Easter Lillies can make us kitties, very sick? Even the pollen in the air or if it briushes up against our fur...so kitties beware!! Don't touch the flowers ever!! Unless you ask your mommy and /or daddy first, OK?
Wow!!!!!!! Summer is here!!?,its soooooo beautiful outside...,here in SE Michigan! You have just gotta see the photo Mommy took of me, standing on a kitchen chair so I can reach to look outside through the screened window! Pssssst.....also mommy & daddy put a "thingy" on the screen so I cannot accidentally cut it, bite it or push it .."-as if!!?" But I do love standing on a chair to look out the one window in our dining room too! I love to scamper up the stairs to "the spare room and get up on the window sill and wave "bye bye" as they drive away....and thats when the "party" starts!!! I play "thundercat" & I "zoom...zoom....zoom" all over the house! I am the best huntress and if there is even the tiniest spider in our house, I'll save it as a gift for my mommy! She's always so happy when she arrives home with daddy, too...& I present to them the "gifts" Ive found while they were gone! Mommy & daddy had to put everything & anything that could remotely possibly hurt me in any way, shape or form... and put it safely away on shelves and inside of some cupboards in the basement! They had to to do it because they love me so much and I'm sort of the same as having a "toddler" around the house! I get behind, under, up, upon & into EVERYTHING I possibly can reach..,and then some! Ive brought them old wires I found behind some boxes in the basement and LUCKY FOR ME....I SAVED THE DAY,!!!! I brought my mommy a gift the other day and it was something my sissy's boyfriend, "Grant" had lost on Easter!!! I found a "fit chip", a computer chip "thingy" that kept track of how much Grant walked and ran etc... Well he lost it and thought it was gone forever! But me being the generous gift giver and best "huntress/finder/keeper" that I am, I just found it between the couch and the "Love Seat".....I "MEOWED & MEOWED" ad got mommy to follow me so I could give her my "gift"!!! Everyone was sooooo happy with me! I got soooo many hugs, kissses and extra loving and petted alot for that gift!!! Grant is really proud of me and very happy also!! But I cannot figure out why mommy was so excited about that little black "fit bit"??? It doesn't even move or anything!! I gave her a really cool squiggly spider and I did't get that kind of a reaction! I didn't get any thing but a loud noise, kind of a shrill sound out of mommy for that cool "gift"??? Man...mommy's...ya can't please them...because she only made a loud noise for that spider, and she gave Grant that "computer thingy".....I suppose I'm going to have to relent and let her pick me up (which I don't let anyone do except for her, and then only for a few moments til I jump down!)....& hold me awhile before I jump down!! Well..I'm thinking about it!.......HAPPY SPRING,!!!!!!!
Love, Luna Skye xxoo

Yes i had a rough start ....I think we all know this by now...... , but Im a really active, and smart kitty... Mommy's a been little sad because shes disabled and really was hoping that I would sit with her or sleep with her at least! Ive been here since Jan 29th and they are being patient with me....but Im only obsessed with "playing" and my wet food , (*twice daily i get wet ....and dry food around always) ! Mol...! I will not eat treats, not of any kind! Mommys tried 6 different kinds, even freeze dried chicken! I want to play and play and play about every hour or 10 mins. And mommys disabled and a chronic pain patient...daddys almost ready to retire (hes been an elem. teacher for 35 yrs!).....they were told on my paperwork that I am "affectionate & cuddly"... Hahaha...I am affectionate in the mornings when we get up I do much head butting in mommys hands! MOL!! I will put my nose near her face ...she calls it "kisses"!!
Mommy wants to pet me but Im not so crazy about it and when she pets me, i move away just far enough so she cant reach....she plays with me in the morning, after lunch and after dinner ! Sometimes i do come to her or daddy but usually mommy,to be petted....for a few moments and if i want it only....then I leave quickly....mommy knows I'm a cat and she loves me very much! Shes very attached to me and calls me "her baby"....mommy got so excited about two months ago when I decided to just get up on her chair with her, next to her! It happened three times and mommy cried because he was so excited....I don't get it? I've never done it again! I Just decided that I don't want to do it anymore !! But I do love to look out from all of the nice windows in our house!
I sleep in the big "dog bed" they got for me...i do jump up into their bed in the night times off & on and I dont get super close to mommy but i do lay on her side near her hip! Mommy talks to me and i do sort of follow her when i feel like it.
Mommy never wants me to be just an entity in our home.....shes never gonna give up!! Never!! Soooooooo they're thinking of going to the rescue at the zoo tmw or calling my old foster mom and asking her if shes fostering any true true lap cats??? I was fine with the cats and dogs she had....so I'm not quite sure if i want to share my kingdom here though?? MOL....MOL....!!
Well everyone ....I want to say "thank you" for making me CAT OF THE DAY,!!! Yesterday ! Thank you also for the lovely offers of friendship and for the kind messages and pretty pictures/rosettes etc! thank you to Tundra for the beautiful photo!! Any ideas and my mommy' s open to them?? Thank you so much!!! Love, Luna Skye

Hey, guess what??? Mommy & Daddy talked with the people who work at the Humane Society, which is here I was first rescued to...mommy told them how Ive changed soooo much since the weathers so nice & Spring is here in Michigan! Well they told mommy that I am maybe just not so into her or them right now because its "hunting/killing" season for a kitty like me! Maybe im bored, even though I live in a two-story house with a lot of ledges to sit on and a bunch of fun toys!
Thy said that maybe I will settle down and stop pretending to almost bite mommy (yes, mommy was worried because Ive tried this several times this past two weeks! They think I just need more hunting instinctive things to do...sooo mommy got me a puzzle ball to get my food (dry food) out of each day....now it will be work!! Also they got a doorway hanger food puzzle with a fuzzy tail and mommys hoping i will be more happy again likeI was before the windows were opened up and since the house has been more open.....
They say its natural for me to be a bit more hyper and active right now ..and in maybe a year or two I'll settle down enough to sit next to mommy on her chair and lie next to her in bed again like I was doing after the first 10 days in this home and up until Spring came and all of the sounds and sights thru the screened windows, makes me mss being outdoors!
Any other ideas are welcome...and if mommys ever annoys anyone by repeating herself, please forgive her because she truly has a MTBI ( mild traumatic brain injury) from a car accident in 2004 & she was in TBI rehab for 3 years......i know a few people in the forums seemed annoyed that apparently mommy said the same thing twice! Mommy's truly sorry and she ill try harder!
Hugs and happy high-5 paws to all of you!!! Love, Luna Skye

Oh My Gosh! I have so much to tell you! But for now..thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart and my husbands and Luna's!!
I was crying & up all last night & night prior because Luna had changed...it took me 4 mos to get her to sleep with me at least most nights and to sit in my chair with me every now and again! Then these past two weeks shes been: irritable, mean, bitey, ornary, up all night stalking and just NOT MY LUNA! I was bawling this morning because i just though she was going to and up a loved cat but n entity in our house and us getting another cat or me to cuddle! Or i thought if shes not happy with us then shed go back possibly toher foster mommy, like she had said!
Well the HVHS (Huron valey humane society) told me to got these to puzzle food toys ...now My "old Luna" loved new toys and went to them right away! She wont touch them and she cried and whimpered so i had to just let her have her regular food bowl....because i love her! Then i remembered my cat from 30 yrs ago and how she went crazy biting and mean from catnip! Then her old foster mommy mentioned catnip to me in her note to me yesterday!
We had recently (2weeks ago...& about the same time we opened the windows and the house up) got her a string mouse new toy with catnip! I had not given her any before but the HVHS told me to spray everything of hers with it to calm her own!!??..... It dawned on me this morning ....and I never put catnip on or in anything of hers, but this new toy has it ! I threw it in the garbage and anything that says "catnip" was tossed today!!!!!! I'VE GOT MY LUNA BAAAAAACKK!! Yayayay thank you thank you to her onderful ex-foster mommy for telling me again about catnip and I want everyone to tell others : PLEEEASE TELL People "NOT" to spray things with that drug because now thats two for two cats for me that went obssessive, mean, bitey and wildly agitated!!!! I was ready to almost give her back to her oster mommy as I thought she was soooo unhappy here with us!! I thought i had lost her or good!!! Thank you again Suzanne(ex- foster mommy's name also)....you're a lifesaver because i really was so sad!! I got a $25.00 gift card for mothers day and i went on ebay and got this cat tree for 30.00!!!!! Im soooo glad she likes it and theres no catnip!!! Love, Suzanne ---(Luna's Mommy wrote todays note!!) thank you frends!! Xx

Hello All Puursons and Felines:
If I had a diary (which I do! (shhhhhh don't tell Mom!) ...it would go something like this:
Oh My Gosh! Luna's Diary journal entry :
5;45 am: Get up! The alarms going off in 30 minutes, I can't wait that long! Plus...I want to be FIRST!
6:20 am: Luna's really mad now because we waited for the real alarm clock to go off before we actually get out of bed....well...Dad did anyways...Mom's a pushover and Luna knows how to melt her heart....or is it those butt scratches Luna wants....right in moms face....so she finally just gets up anyways
7:30 am: Luna actually eats her breakfast, even though demanding it at 5:45 am....she really wasn't THAT hungry!
8:00-11:00 am: watch mom clean litter box....then poop....watch mom waiting for that poop, she cleans it up ....I pee!! Then Luna grooms, bathes, watches birds & watches the dog next door poop...then a nap!
11:30 am dad comes home for lunch...Luna wakes up....runs to greet him and then runs away just after he bends down with his sore ack, to pet her!
12:15 pm: mom goes on her gadgets or iOS devices! "Oh no you don't!!"....Luna wishes to play and finds every cute little face and guilt trip in the book until she gets mommy to play...again....oh...did I forget to mention that mommy always plays with me after breakfast too? That's just after eating but before my self-grooming"bath"!
1:00-4:00 pm: drink water, pee, look out the side window, look out the back window, eat a dry food snack.....drink water....pee....poop..look out the front window....Oh My Gosh! All of this watching, peeing and pooping is tiring Luna out!
5:00 pm: dinner time....nope ..no..nope..Luna doesn't like "minced" why can't you people remember?
5:20 pm: mom finally gets Luna her favorite kinds of wet foods!! Oh happy day!! Luna is happy kitty with a full tummy once more!
6:00pm: Luna grooms herself, hides under the couch the whole evening just to get away from that darned loud box, they call a "T.V," and falls asleep just before mom and dad go up the stairs to their bedroom....or..um....Luna's bedroom...
11:00 pm: Luna gets carried upstairs in a laundry basket and gets put on her/ their big bed......Luna crawls into the "no handle" paper bag that is on her/their bed!!
**11:30 pm: (mom puts paper bag WITH LUNA IN IT CURLED UP LIKE A TOY.....onto her tummy....(hey a moms gotta get her cuddles however she can get
Them!...when it comes to this kitty!)......We all sleep...zzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzz
2:00am: Luna squirms out of the bag and crawls up under moms armpit with her little chin on mommy's arm ....and sleeps....and the world is right once more....for awhile...hmmmmmmmph!
Love, Luna...everyone's purrrr-friend!
