Lady Moon

Dear Lady Moon,

You may have heard that I sent a letter to Mr. Sun last week, regarding his lack of timeliness in showing up every morning. His showing up late has completely thrown off my morning feeding schedule. It's almost impossible to get Mom out of bed when it's still dark.

I was quite surprised this weekend when he approached me and we had a nice little conversation while I was on the porch. Poor fellow, seems he feels a little put upon, you know, with the whole global warming thing. He explained about how busy he's been on the other side of the world. He even mentioned how extra hard he'd worked during the summer, here in the desert (I told him he didn't need to work that hard).

After a little digging, he started to tell me the real story. He complained that Ms. Cloud sometimes hogs the sky and steals his thunder - oh and that funny bit he does on Thunder had me nearly hysterical.

Eventually he got around to telling me about a certain "Diva" who was interrupting his work. I think we both know who that is, don't we. He was careful not to name any names, but I'm not blind. I couldn't help but notice that some nights you barely make an effort. New Moon? More like No Moon I say.

So if you are going to hog the spotlight, the least you can do is show up! Mom is pretty slow-witted in the morning, so if you shine in our bedroom window she might think it was time to wake up. I bet I could get my breakfast before she even figured it out. Let's work together on this - one diva helping out another.

Thanks,

Lady Floofington, AKA Fin

Your mom sounds so much like my mom. The sun has been later showing up and mom has a harder time waking up, too.

Thank you for coming to my slumber party and celebrating my 14th birthday with me!

So maybe if it's a full moon with a clear sky...you can get an all you can eat all nighter buffet?

Hey Fin,
We gave up on Lady Moon a long time ago. It's impossible to figure out her schedule. Sometimes she shows up, sometimes she doesn't. She can be late or early, she can be all there or not-so-all there. Heck, she's so confused that sometimes she show up turning Mr. Sun's shift; what gives with that?

That diva Lady Moon! Sometimes only half of her shows up! What's with that??

MoMo said...

OK Fin, so you had a talk with Mr Sun. If I were to do it, I wouldn't tell SS about it. She might think she has a schizophrenic kitty on her hands.

Good luck with this plan Fin.

Great plan, Fin.

Parker said...

Let me know if this works, OK?

The Whiskeratti said...

We wish you luck, Fin. (Our Mom sleeps with blackout drapes on her windows, so Moon and Sun don't matter too much here).

We will eagerly wait to see how this request pans out!

Cindy said...

Good luck. We don't like the evening routine changed either getting dark so early when we could be watching birds.

We know what you mean Fin. We have to take turns jumping up and down on Momma's belly to get her up in the mornings now that she's switched to the night shift at work.

Lady Moon gets us confused too. Could you have another word with Mr. Sun for our Beans. They are going to Las Vegas next week and mum saw the temperature is around 100. We don't want them to be overcooked when they come home. Thanks

Lady Moon certainly does work off a schedule all her own, doesn't she? Good of you to try and tame her for your well-being. Let us know how that works out, 'kay?

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

My mom sleeps with the room VERY VERY DARK, DARKER THAN MY ARMPIT. So, she has to rely on the alarm to wake her.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Good angle to try. Let me know if it works!

Fin that was a great letter - I hope it works.

Keiko and Luna T. Katt said...

you're so lucky to get to meow at the sun!

The Monkeys said...

You're such a convincing girl, Fin! We're sure the moon will listen to you!

Tuck said...

Have you heard form the moon yet? That diva better know that you are the top cat around that place and you always get what you want!!

I should be so lucky to have Glogirly get up each day with Mr. Sun.

I should be so lucky to have her get up each day at the same time, give or take an hour or two.

I've got to save a few nuggets of my food each day so that I don't starve to death in the morning waiting for Glogirly to catch up with the rest of the world.
