The Furry Crusader takes on the Maniacal Carrot

This neighborhood wasn’t always safe.  The first day I moved in was the last day the good citizens of Luna City had to worry about the Maniacal Carrot.

This is going to require an inspiring theme song reminiscent of John Williams.

Luna next to window looking at you

If you couldn’t tell, my little paws have been getting kind of talented.

Dooooo, doo duh doo doo….

DEE DUM doooo…..

Luna asleep on keyboard

Dooooo, doo duh doo doo….

Luna pressing four keys on keyboard, looking down


I am the Furry Crusader who emerges from the darkness…

Luna on keyboard with top of head in shadows

I am both the claw of justice…

Luna gazing downward with tail covering nose

And the toothy terror…

I am the protector who stands watch over Luna City.

The only one who can fend off the evil that is the Maniacal Carrot…

Wait, what’s that?

Luna on tree looking down

I see Luna City is in danger!  I must come to their rescue!

I hope I still remember how to fly. Here goes nothing…

Luna trying to jump off tree

Ahhhh!!!! Can’t land!

Luna's paws mid-jump

Fwoooooom!!!!! (cat landing noise)

Luna looks downward with ears forward

Dooooo, doo duh doo doooooooo!!!!!

Luna looking forward from upward angle

DEE DUM doooo…..

Now I must locate the villain!

I can see the destruction left in the Maniacal Carrot’s wake.

The poor citizens of Luna City.  I am here for them.  Now I must lie in wait.

Luna in bed giving look off to the left

I will surprise the Maniacal Carrot with my stealth and agility.  It is, after all, a carrot.

Wait, what’s that!  I saw orange!  Time to attack!

Luna about to jump down from kitchen counter

Now I’ve got you! Dooooo, doo duh doo doooooooo!!!!!

Luna jumping down

RRRRK!!!  Stuck!

Luna jumping down hole

The carrot could only have gone down here.

Luna on edge overlooking stairwell

I will chase!

Luna starts to race down stairs

And fight!

Luna races down stairs


Luna stretching and yawning

Aha!  Alas, I have caught you, Maniacal Carrot!  Say your prayers, vegetable!

Luna lies down with carrot

Chomp chomp chomp chomp die die die die!!!!

Luna chomps carrot

Whenever the good citizens of Luna City are in trouble, I, the Furry Crusader will protect them, watching over them, always.

Dooooo, doo duh doo doooooo… meoooowwww (fade out)

And now for Luna’s end of post commentary:


Hey all, it was a fun adventure.  My nose is a bit more orange, but, no matter. I was victorious!  I’d like to give a shout out to:

James Schek, for being the first of many to come of my creepy Feedly stalkers,

Kyle Murao, for complimenting how pretty my new home looks,

Antara Sarkar, for giving me the time of day, despite how much she dislikes my species,

and Eric Bowersox, who ingeniously gets people to ask his fiancee programming questions.

I’ll do shoutouts for other readers in future posts!  Meow!

    Despite the fact that her bio says DON’T DO THAT! 🙂

  4. This is film noir material. Luna is a feline Barbara Stanwyck with a hint of batgirl. Congratulations on the new house.

    • Definitely could be the reincarnation of Barbara, I agree. 🙂 Thanks, by the way. We’ve been in the new house for a couple months now. The new home I was talking about was the website. We like both though!


  5. Luna, I am so happy to see you installed in your new home here on the net, and entering upon a new crusade. The grey background suits you, and no one should doubt the seriousness of a soul with eyes that reflect so precisely the shadows cast by the window screen. The orange carrots have no chance at all!

    • I was originally going for colors that I took from Luna’s fur, but this theme isn’t configurable that way until I pay another $30. It can at least use brighter text. But for now, I do think it looks good, so not going to change it for now unless it’s a problem.


  6. Suave. Luna gives Batman a run for his money.

  7. I knew Luna City would be safe!


  8. Dear Luna–

    Leela and I have been following you for some time. You’re tied-for-first with another cat (someone named Squishy). Please keep posting more pictures and stories of your many adventures. Keep fighting for Truth, Justice and the American Short-hair way.

    • We always wondered if it was just our imaginations when we saw a cat that looked like Leela in a black car peering at us from across the street. I take it that you were driving?


  9. Go Luna! But keep an eye on Squishy. He may give you a tough competition.


    • I agree. The force is strong in this young Jedi. It’d be weird to see Squishy around “Luna City” though. Perhaps no one really wants to move into a Squishy City though.


  10. Another superhero cat spotted, ..this one with a cape!
