Luna discovers the cosmos

Meow, Scott!  What’s in this box here?

Where’d you go?

We have a Little Chomper post to write!  MeOOWW!!!

I can’t have you storing your oversized garbage in my studio!

Rotten tuna.  This box is at least twenty times bigger than me, and I just ate a handful of treats!

How do I get this thing open?  I need to know what this is, so I can complain about it more.

I’m going to totally destroy what’s inside here.  It will be rendered into one of Scott’s oversized disappointments when I’m through with this.

It looks like I can just dig through the crack!

Meow!  Scott!  You’re back!  What’s inside this box?  Get it out of here!


Telescope packed in box

Is that what I think it is?

A cat tunnel?

Well I’ll be a mouse’s pookie!

It IS a cat tunnel!

PURR!!!  *leap!*

Luna jumping backwards out of telescope box

Set it up!  Set it up!

Stealthy purr!

He’s setting it up!  It looks so shiny!

Gotta see!

What … is this?

You say it’s a telescope?

What does a telescope do?

You can see things in outer space?

Yes Luna, it’s not a cat tunnel.  Instead, you look through the eyepiece and see outer space.  Sorry.

Let me see then.  Let me see why you did not buy me a cat tunnel.

Look here.  This is the moon.

Moon near horizon

It’s a little fuzzy Scott.

There’s chimney smoke blurring it a little, and, I’m taking the picture through the eyepiece.

Purr.  What else ya got, Scott?

Jumper with moon

This is Jupiter.  While you can see four of its moons easily, it’s hard to show more than one moon in the picture.

Here’s closer to what it should look like.


Scott?  Has a cat ever looked at Jupiter through a telescope before?

No, you’re the first cat to do so.

Scott, this is pretty bad ass.  I think a cat tunnel is cool, but this is also cool.

Luna, I’m starting to get tired.  I’m going to throw out the box and go to sleep.

Meow?  The box!  You can’t!  *pounce!*

You will not touch the box.

It fits perfectly fine in the living room.  Just go to sleep.

Sorry Luna.  The box is almost the size of the sofa.  It has to go.

MEOW!!  You… will not take this box.

It looks like I’ll have to throw you out with the box then, Luna.  It was nice knowing you.

Meow?  Let go of the box!  He’s serious!

I’ve been way too annoying of a cat and I need to escape!

This flap is too high!  I can’t see what’s behind it!

What’s another way out?

I’ll jump this way!

I’ll escape onto that sofa!

The nerve of him to steal my box like that.

But when he goes to sleep, I’m playing with the telescope more.

Purr!  Such a cool telescope!  Purrrrr…

  1. Ok, now I’m jealous. You got a telescope? I would love to look through one of those. Lucky Luna. She gets all the fun.

  2. Waiting to see Luna discover the wonders of the universe.

    Scott, you know that comets are named after their discoverers, right? One day she may jump on the telescope and change the settings. You’ll peer through the eye piece, see a hitherto unknown object and report it to the International Astronomical Union.
    Voila! Comet Luna.


  3. Hi Scott and Luna,

    Happy Caturday to you both! I just love this post! I love it when my to kitty’s get into all sorts of things, including box’s. Both my baby’s are now 1 years old. Mr. Boots is now taking those girly thing us woman use once a month, (sorry, but funny) and likes to play with them until I can catch him to take it away. He thinks I’m playing when I do this! YIKES!

    Now Miss Prissy Princess is just a mellow little girl, dark coco brown long hair. And when you look at her, she always has this Surprise Look in her big golden yellow eyes like, “What? What did I do?” they are both so funny around the house together! I just love Luna’s coloring. I suppose your going to make her the next & first “Cat Astronomer?”

    That sure would give CNN a great news story!! Have a great weekend, and High 5 Paws!!

    • Well, CNN did spend an awful lot of time covering those llamas. I’d think a stargazing kitty is more interesting. And yes, it’s funny how cats have this permanent “look” on their faces. I mean, the obvious example is grumpy cat, but then there’s yours. Luna’s look is a little weird, with her perfect circles for eyes. I suppose it’s a friendly playful look, but really she’s just evaluating how best to get more treats.
