The dry nose

Can’t sleep, can’t sleep…

Luna's head resting between feet

This nose has been bugging me!

Luna looking forward while resting head to side

It’s so dry and itchy!  I’m soooo tired.

Luna looking stern from bed

I wish I had moisturizer.  Is there even a moisturizer for cat noses?

Ugh. I have GOT to find something!

Let’s try the upstairs bathroom.

Really?  No cat moisturizer?  There are all these human cosmetics in here.

Awfully selfish of them to not have anything for cats.  Let me check behind the shower curtain.

My nose is so dry!  They must keep the cat stuff with the cat treats.  That’s in the pantry.

Here we are!  I can just wedge my paw in there, and…

Have a little peek.  Let’s see here…

Luna peeks in cabinet


MEOW! Oh, sir? Do you have any idea where I can find some cat moisturizer? Purrrr.

Luna leaning on shirt, looking hungry

You don’t understand me at all? Meow.

My nose will surely die.  At least I snagged a cat treat.  Time to make a run for it.

Luna looking up, licking to the right

So tasty!!  Wait a minute.  This tongue… It’s wet.

Maybe this tongue can be useful?  Let me try something.

Oh my god.  It’s heavenly.  My nose, after so many years of using cat moisturizer!  I can just use my tongue!

But, it’s still dry on this side…

So much better!  My nose is so wet!

One more for good measure!

Oh meOW!!

Finally, I can get some REAL work done.  Now where was I?

Purrpurrrrrr.  So much nose relief.  Purrrrrrr.  ZZZZzzzzzz.

  1. That wouldn’t work for Penny. She’d just dry off her nose again immediately afterward by nudging one of her hoomans.


  2. Oh poor Luna… Taking that long to figure it out – oh well – money saved now you don’t have to buy cat moisturizer. And got a treat. Clever Luna.


  3. After seeing this post, My nose started itching.

  4. Discard my Quora comment. After reading this, I fear Luna might put Clinique out of business.

    • I kind of discovered that myself, which is why I let Luna lick my nose on occasion, despite where that tongue has been. It’s something I just do, and don’t like to think about.


  5. I think this is my favourite Luna post so far. She is so adorable and kudos to you for taking such befitting pictures of her and then spinning a story out of them.
