Purr! Head rub! My life is so wonderful!
Purr! PURR!!! This has been the best year a cat could ever live!
So many head rubs. I need a break.
I have been given all the attention my cuteness deserves.
But, you see, I didn’t always have it this good.
Just a year ago, I was staring into the depths of loneliness. I didn’t know what sort of life I would lead.
There I was, mired in depression. I was happy for my human parents…
They were getting married and planning the whole wedding themselves. My Mommy’s relatives from Belarus would be around for two whole weeks. And Scott was shooting his latest movie while trying to meet a deadline at his day job. They also had to move, so they were shopping for a new apartment, and a car. And instead of letting me eat the leftovers from the wedding, they hired a cat sitter and went off on a honeymoon. I got a postcard.
That’s Alaska? I’m sure they had fun. And get this…
The cat sitter tried to sing to me.
I know, right? Meow. Just silly.
Then we moved, and … let’s just say it was a bad idea to hide in the computer desk.
But after that, Scott began telecommuting.
And I had a lot more space at our new digs!
And I got a new cat tree!
I was so happy!
Hey, I don’t look happy enough. Make me look happier.
Purr! So happy!
Scott and I always liked to sneak up on each other. I get all playful and perky when we try to scare each other!
But then Scott started to take it too far.
It was hard to get any sleep, and cats need a lot of sleep.
When was I going to get some sleep…
On top of all that, they had the gall to introduce me to the neighbor’s dog, Tucker!
I had to hide.
I figured I was safe.
But then Scott told me he had some good news.
Meow? What’s the good news?
Scott showed me.
Scott actually created me my own website!
I was going to get to do a dramatic piano recital as part of the big announcement!
DUM DUM DUM DUMMMMM….
Purr! Total standing O!
Here’s me looking like a gangster!
You feelin’ lucky? I didn’t think so.
Scott’s creativity has no bounds!
He’s been great with photo-editing, so he can make me…
…look like a kitty in a Victorian-era mystery!
He’s also a computer programmer, so he can integrate all sorts of things into my stories.
There was one post where he leveraged cheap labor (using Amazon.com’s “Mechanical Turk” technology) to quickly name hundreds of my pictures. And used the technology of a company named Versal to create an online class about the Luna. Did I mention when he bought me a telescope?
This kitty right here got to see Jupiter!
But it wasn’t only about the blog.
I mean, what does a cat really care about a blog anyway? Scott was able to come up with fun games for me!
Like the game of treats!
And he would knock down icicles for me!
Sure, Scott had a day job, but I didn’t let that stop me.
Every morning, there I was, waiting for him to wake up and play …
And then I’d get him to spill his coffee everywhere.
When he sat down at the computer to work…
Purr! Not going to happen!
Picture trying to work for a whole year like that.
I didn’t make it easy for him, but I’m sure he liked it that way!
Scott wanted me to have the best life possible, so he even took me outside!
It was so pretty out there, and I explored a lot. But not really my thing.
Especially when I ran across the mean neighbor’s cat. I hissed a lot.
But then… meow. This was a sad moment in a kitty’s life.
It’s hard to talk about. I got really sick.
Scott really did everything he could to ensure I would return to my happy furry self, but I was not eating and it was difficult to pee. He researched everything he could and asked many opinions of many vets.
Scott often let me sleep on him. It made me feel a little better to be so close to someone who cares so much about me.
He brought me to the vet and I got an antibiotic shot. I could not let him down. I wouldn’t make someone I love so much suffer so greatly. I had to recover.
And I did.
I got the best care any cat could hope for. I really felt like I was a truly special kitty.
And then… the greatest thing that could ever happen to a cat…
Scott published a Luna book.
Check this bad boy out!
Since when does a cat look that bad ass! Self-published, on Amazon!
We had catnip to celebrate!
It’s all coming to an end.
The greatest year a cat has ever lived… will soon be over.
Scott is starting a new job, and he won’t be telecommuting.
He promises to continue my blog, doing my patented top-model kitty photo-shoots on weekends.
But it won’t be the same.
I will forever remember this past year…
… as the best year a cat could ever live.
Note from the cat daddy:
Luna is such a beautiful, affectionate creature, and more and more, it’s become apparent to me that she is meant to be shared with the world, to add just one more ray of sunlight in people’s lives. We make too good a team. I think during my year at home, I set up the foundation for Luna’s lifetime of sharing, and she’s not going anywhere.
I hope you frequent littlechomper.com, with over 60 unique, photo-laden ultra-cute Luna stories, and counting. I invite you to come enjoy my furry little Luna, and my quirky humor. And with that, I’ll leave you with the most entertaining three seconds a cat can offer.
