Interviews With Cats: Luna The Rescue
This week's "Interviews With Cats" features a cat with a cause: Luna is on a mission to make black cats cool. And man, is it working! Head on over to her IG account for more cuteness and discover what an awesome purr-sonality she has in today's interview!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: Hi there! My name is Luna Bear, I am also called Grogs, Luberry, Luna Petuna, Chunky Bum, Pooh Bear and Lovebug (amongst other things) by my mum. I am believed to be about 5 years old. I live with my mum and dad in a small village in Norfolk, UK.
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
A: My mum and dad love Harry Potter! Before they had me they had another black cat who they called Weasley. They decided to carry on this tradition with me and I am named after Luna Lovegood.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: I’d love to say that I have met someone famous, like Taypurr Swift, but sadly not! The day the RSPCA placed me with my humans to be fostered, I was scared at first but I came out of my shell when I realized there was somewhere lovely and warm to stay with food on tap (at set meal times). Also, making lots of new furriends on Instagram, although this is more exciting for my momager than me.
Q: Tell us about your best day ever:
A: I would probably say the day my mum and dad collected me from the cattery where I was up for adoption. I was hiding but bounded straight out from my hiding place when I heard my dad’s voice. They were failed fosterers for the RSPCA because they decided to adopt me!
Q: What’s your favorite treat?
A: TUNA. Tap the tin and I will be at your side.
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:
A: The time I pooped on mum’s clothes. No wait, the time I sharpened my claws on mums favourite handbag.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: Any holiday that I get to dress up! Halloween (which is the day of my birthday) and Christmas especially.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: An advo-cat and spokespurrson for all the black cats out there. We are awesome!
Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?
A: I have a trusty plastic stick with fluff on the end – gets me every time. My Instagram friend @scottsandcats sent me some catnip filled pasta toys for Christmas and I adore those!
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: I often sit on my hind legs like a little meercat, usually when I am waiting for food.
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: Although I pluck the furniture and the carpets to smithereens, my parents don’t mind because they say at least I am happy! I also wake dad up at 6am on the dot every morning and he gets up to feed me without fail!
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: Black, like me it goes with everything.
Q: Do you have a best friend? If so, who?
A: I am good furriends with a cat who lives two doors away called Simba. He has three legs and a very loud meow.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
A: Sitting in my grass patch in the garden.
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: I was very timid and frightened when my humans first looked after me, as I had been living on the street. I am getting more and more confident every day. I am a happy little girl who enjoys the simple things in life.
