The Perfect Cat

Since I brought her home, she was a very friendly and vocal pet. I didn't mind the frequent meowing, because it felt like she was communicating more so than complaining. She picked up on going to the bathroom in the litter box very quickly, but she had a problem at first with getting poop on her paws when she tried to cover it. After many times of me washing her paws after, she started doing something very peculiar. She would go to the litter box, and after she was finished she'd go to her water bowl and dip her paws in it and lick them clean. Of course I'd then have to go get her fresh water and clean the bowl. But I thought it was interesting because it appeared that she was trying to save me the trouble of washing her paws by doing it herself. Her fur was thick and shed a lot, but it lessened when I started using a wire tooth cat brush. It made her fur feel like silk. She had wonderful coloring as well. She had black, white, and orange bits in her fur. I was told she was a tabby mix.

Luna had a lot of energy. When she wasn't jumping all over the place, she'd either be sleeping in one of my open drawers, or on my lap. She was very fond of kneading my leg as well. And she was great at catching any bugs or lizards that came into the house. I kept her inside, but she knew how to hunt. Overall, she was a sweet and very intelligent cat.
