Hello All Purrrsons and Felines:
Luna is an almost 3 year old domestic mix, all white Cat. She was rescued from a hoarders home where she snuk outdoors to have her kittens safely from the hungry dogs that had also been starved and in high numbers, where Luna had lived. A neighbor saw her outdoors with her kittens, put them all in a box and took them where she thought they lived (at the hoarders home). This person saw what was going on with the starving, neglected many cats and dogs . She called the Humane Society and Luna and her furrriends and her kittens were taken to a foster care home where she and her kittens lived for 6 months. Then Luna actually “rescued Me”. I am a chronic pain patient with a horrible nerve disease, degenerative disc disease, many other things too much to mention here and too much for me to bother writing and for you to bother reading.
I also have lost my oldest daughter 9 years ago, through estrangement. My youngest daughter and I are very close but she got her MLIS degree, moved out about last September 2012 and got a great job! She has a wonderful boyfriend also. So there we were “empty nesters” and I’m only 51 years old!! I felt like with all of my pain issues, illnesses, past history of 9 surgeries and more to come….I just had to have something more at home so that I didnt feel so lonely and overwhelmed. I honestly feel that Luna “rescued” me or us. You can read this average day in her life today, the way she’s living now at our home, with us for the past 5 months! It’s pretty amusing and I think if you like animals and Cats, you ‘ll maybe just get a “kick” out of this diary entry for “A Day In the Life Of Luna, the Cat”:
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 back, 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!
