Welcome Luna!

I didn’t intend to get another cat… it happened by accident.  I swear!

I knew in summer it was hard to find fosters for the VOKRA kitties, so I thought I could open my home to a kitty in need of a place to live other than a cage.  One foster had to get rid of her foster kitty because family members who were allergic were visiting her home.  So I volunteered to take ‘Melinda’, an extremely shy and skiddish black kitty.  She was found giving birth to her 5 kittens in somebody’s garage.  They had the right frame of mind to call VOKRA who came to collect Melinda and her kittens.  All kittens were homed except her… shy, skiddish, and black, she had a slim chance at finding a furever home.

I picked her up on my birthday, August 2!  The kitty introductions went well.  I kept Melinda in my room and closed the door.  Ciara and Sookie were definitely curious who the meowing bundle of fur was on the other side!  Slowly and carefully, I introduced Melinda to the kitties.  There were a few hisses and paw slaps, but soon they learned the natural order of things.  Melinda was the type of cat who needed kitty company… she bonded immediately with Sookie and Ciara (they took longer to get used to her!).

The name Melinda didn’t suit her though, and she didn’t respond to it.  I tried a few names but settled on Luna.  She’s black like the night, and its a pretty name for a pretty kitty!  She even turns her head when I say her name.

Luna is a very special kitty indeed… she has a curled tail!  Its called a Flank-Curved Ringtail and its a genetic mutation apparently, similar to Manx and Bobtail cats.

Things are pretty happy now in the Alexander home.  Sookie is the slow and careful blind kitty, Ciara is the chubby love-hog, and now Luna is the spastic loving newbie, very vocal at dinnertime!

    Luna is a lucky kitty. How nice of you to give her a furever home. Also glad her fur buddies have accepted her.
