TC: A Star Passes

I haven't felt like writing this blog the last few years. I've been too busy taking long morning naps that turn into long afternoon naps and licking my fur until it's super shiny. But I did feel the need to get on here to pay tribute to my mentor.

TC, the original TVMA cat, has passed away.

Now I know what you're thinking: Wasn't TC your nemesis? Well yes, there were a few years of that, but in recent years, and actually always, I've secretly admired TC. I mean, someone can only be your nemesis if they're your equal right?

She was the first cat I ever met who wrote her own blog and had a job, serving as the feline communications specialist (and Slim Pet Challenge spokesperson) at TVMA. She was even on the cover of the Texas Veterinarian and on an episode of "Must Love Cats" on Animal Planet!

I've competed with her in the past, but the truth is, I wanted to be her. She was truly one of the best of us.

Happy trails, TC. There aren't any canines where you are. You will always be my inspiration.

Love,
Luna

I've actually started a new blog in recent years. You can find it here.

Luna Hats


This probably isn't a surprise to anyone, but recently I received some fan mail containing a picture of someone wearing what they call a "Luna hat." Now I do not endorse the use of my image to sell hats (especially since no one has approached me with money or food), but I can't help but think that this hat on this fan is quite an improvement. More people should try and look like me. So, though I did not give permission for someone to use my likeness to make this hat, I would still like to say to whomever wants to improve your looks, that you are free to try and look like me. I don't blame you. Who wouldn't want to?

2012 New Year's Reso-Luna-tions:


  • Take more naps in the sun.
  • Finally catch that moving red dot.
  • Continue stacking dead crickets in the corner.
  • Continue being beautiful, shiny and skinny.
  • Continue being better than TC.

National "Luna is Skinnier Than TC" Day

It's National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone how much skinnier I am than TC. Even though TC was the one who received national attention on Animal Planet this year (on a video segment about fat cats, mind you), my body type is actually the physique that healthy felines should be aiming for. In fact, according to a pet-person weight conversion chart on the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention website, I would be a slim, healthy 108-pound female if I were a person (since I weigh about 8 pounds as a cat), while TC, who is 14.2 pounds, clearly has a person-weight of more than 200 pounds, which is almost double my weight either way. Therefore, I am naming it National "Luna is Skinnier Than TC" Day, in honor of me.

New Desk


Today I received a new (well, new to me) desk for all my dedicated blogging. So far, it's just as comfortable to lay on.

Getting in the Way of Work...


...is hard work. Do you think it’s easy to stretch across two sets of papers in an upside-down position? No. As you can see, it takes concentration.
