Luna with her favorite toy!
A little over 15 mos ago, we rescued a little white kitten that someone had abandoned on the side of a road in a cardboard box. It was during a full moon (hence the name we chose). The vet said she was approx. 5 wks old when we got her (Sept. 30). Her eyes were green when she was a baby, but gradually turned a golden color as she got bigger. She is completely deaf, and we keep her indoors at all times for her own safety. She is sweet mostly, but has a tendency to randomly go into a "stalking" mode and attack our hands/arms. :/ Like, 'draw blood' attack. It has lessened a bit as she has gotten older, but she still does it occasionally, usually at night when we are settling in to sleep or early morning. She has slept with us since we first got her. We keep her shut in our room when we are sleeping or gone, as she is prone to mischief when left to her own devices. She LOVES to play fetch with us...of all the cute little kitty toys we get her, her favorite toy of all?...a drinking straw! lol! She is very alert, smart, playful, and one minute loves to cuddle, and the next minute is running and hiding from us. She has a custom made scratching post, but prefers my sofas...Can't seem to break her of THAT little habit. She refuses to be socialized with any other animals (dogs or other cats), and hisses violently at any other animal that comes near. We tried right away when we got her, thinking that the younger she was, the easier it would be...alas, not so, much to the dismay of my in-laws Bischon who really just wants to be friends and love on her. Not happenin'.
All in all...we spoil her mercilessly, and love her completely...she has brought so much love and joy into our home. She is our sweet little princess. If anyone can identify her specific breed, we would love to know.
