It's Caturday!

Welcome back for another edition of Caturday, where we review the week in cat news, and get to know some of your fabulous felines! This week we checked out a fashion shoot down on the Caboodle Ranch Cat Sanctuary, Pork Chop the cat dazzled us with his Oscar caliber purrformance in Walking for Kisses, we all unanimously agreed that the World's Grumpiest Cat is completely adorable, and I recapped my day on the set of the new Fancy Feast "Storybook Wedding" commercial earlier this week.

We also have a fun giveaway going on right now where you can win your kitty a handmade Penguin or Eggplant catnip toy from Fair Ivy surprise package subscription service! Click HERE for all the deets on how to enter!

I'm also super excited to announce that production on the first ever Catsparella podcast is underway, and the premiere episode will be debuting next week! Get ready to experience cat culture in a whole new way, as I reveal my exclusive interviews with lifestyle guru Colin Cowie and cat handler Karen Thomas from the set of the Fancy Feast commercial shoot, along with answering some reader questions during a segment called "Kitty Q & A with Catsparella"!


Now on to the task at hand, this week's featured kitty-cat is a tiny stunner named Luna. Another example of a black cat that's anything but bad luck, this gal went from street to chic when she was rescued as a stray last year, and now enjoys all the creature comforts of a loving forever home!

Her mama, Ginger writes:

She's 4-years-old and I adopted her from the shelter last summer. I just kept the name she came with since she answered to it and also had a little white "moon" on her belly. (Ed note: AWW!)

So glam!

Her nicknames include Little Cat, Lulu, Moona and Poubelle.

She was found as a stray, and I imagine that is where she got her eating habits from! She'll eat just about anything including plastic (which is naughty!) and she loves to eat pizza and fruit especially. Her ability to scavenge through the garbage for noms is why one of her nicknames is Poubelle (it means garbage in French).

Werk it, girl!

She is a tiny cat, often being mistaken for a kitten, but she's smart as a whip and super-friendly! At house parties she is the centre of attention and loves to be pet and held over your right shoulder. She's really smart--I've taught her several tricks now such as fetch, jump up, high five, how to sit at a table like a nice lady (Ed note: !!!) and more. I hope to teach her to paint next.

Her favourite activities include eating, sleeping in different places and blinking at me like an anime cat; and she is one of the best things to ever happen to me.

She always looks so startled when I take her photo... I imagine her saying the following:

Why are you looking at me funny....?

Oh no! She found my new hiding spot!

This isn't a basket. It's a BOAT! I'm on a BOAT! *cue Lonely Island song*

I love Luna so much! She's definitely got the look, and she's street smart to boot! I'd love to see her sitting like a lady, and can't wait to see her upcoming paintings hanging in a museum someday! It's always touching to hear someone say their cat is one of the best things to ever happen to them, and it's plain to see that Luna loves her Mom just as much as her Mom loves her!

Special thanks to Ginger for sharing her little moon baby with us this week! Please do take a moment (or two!) to stop by and browse her fabulous blog, Ginger Won't Snap!

Want to see your cat(s) on Catsparella? I'm always taking submissions for my weekly Caturday post! Email your best kitty pics to, and include your cat's name and anything else you'd like to share! I can't wait to hear from you!

Luna is super pretty!!! Please tell her we send kisses. It must have been really fun to meet the Fancy Feast Star Kitty!!!! WOW!!! Our big brother had a super huge crush on her! when ever he would see her on TV her would strut in front of her and purr! LOL So for a long time Mommy hung a picture of her near his toy bin. It was his pin up girl!!! Sadly we never got to meet our older brother cause he went to the Rainbow Bridge 2 years ago. We will watch for the commercial though cause we love pretty girls too!

Oh goodness! What a beauty! Smart and good looking, what a combo. It would be so difficult to not let her be the center of attention with all that cuteness. And congrats on all your success. Life is great with cats!

Luna, we think your sister lives here. Her name is Little Miss BG and she is little and she is always hungry but she knows how to find food. She comes in to eat and then runs outside to eat with the ones on the porch. You are so cute Luna. We think you are terrific and glad you have a great home.

I hope she does not eat plastic too much...:-)

Ginger said...

Awww you are all so sweet! I read your comments out to Luna and she purred and snorted a little. I think it was a laugh!

Now she's chilling like the queen she is in her newest toy: The Shue Box (TM)
