My name is Petra Luna and I L.O.V.E. cats! We live with a colorful bunch of Oriental Shorthair cats – and also take care of several adorable community cats. So I guess you can tell we are passionate about cats. You can connect with us in many ways: Subscribe to my YouTube Channel, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and/or sign up on my website. I’d be delighted to answer any questions you might have when it comes to cats… so ask away. Also, I always want to learn more so I can’t wait to hear your tips and tricks to deal with your feline family members!
Zeus is our 7 year-old boy, who wasn’t supposed to survive his 1st birthday according to a feline heart specialist, because of his extreme heart condition. He is running our lives and makes sure we’re keeping up with our daily routines. Sometimes, he likes to speed up the ‘events’ like taking a shower, brushing teeth, using the treadmill etc. so that we get to his favorite routine – play time! We cherish every moment with him and he’s as fit as a boy can be – which makes us happy every day! His favorite toy: A soft blue ball from Germany. Can’t be any other ball and HAS to be blue – he plays fetch as long as you have time to throw the ball!
Angel is Zeus’ sister and a real tomboy. She is challenging Zeus every day while also making sure she’s awake when all the others are asleep so that she gets ALL the attention from us. She likes to talk a lot, too, and comes up with all kinds of creative sounds to show that she’s unique. Her favorite toys are the metal wrapping around a champagne cork. When she sees me opening a bottle she’s already there to pick it up. This is what she likes to fetch all day.
Sochi is our beautiful and playful scaredy-cat from Germany. Her motto: In case of doubt, disappear quickly! Sochi and her sister Imp traveled all the way from Germany to California together. Her sister lives with a friend of mine in Sacramento, CA. Sochi, our little Marilyn Monroe, loves to tease Zeus… and always gets what she wants! She is also the model of our CatCrazy Channel logo. Her favorite toy is a feather teaser wand… fits well since she just loves to chase birds!
Zsa Zsa is our very elegant, athletic and independent addition to the family that recently came to us from Germany. She loves our cat wheel and gets jealous when anybody else dares to use it. She also loves when we play with the fishing rod and a feather toy. Zsa Zsa voices her opinion clearly and lets you know if she wants to be touched right now – or not. Meaning: She is full of tortie-tude! When she does, though, she wraps her whole body around your arm and holds you gently with all four paws.
Briga is extremely smart and figured out how to open doors, drawers, boxes of all kinds – locked or unlocked – extremely quickly. But not only that…. she is very beautiful inside and out. I love all her little dots, stripes, spots, color patches – and the bright, intense, shiny colors of her soft coat. Briga arrived from Germany half a year ago together with half sister Zsa Zsa and they both get along fabulously. Briga likes to watch TV and steal things from locked containers. However, there is nothing she loves more than to snuggle and cuddle up as much as she can. And then, all of a sudden, she gets it in her head and does a somersault in the middle of the room. She loves to chase birds and chatters a lot when pursuing them. Needless to say, she loves toys with feathers – and they don’t last long!
Xena is Zeus’ and Angel’s mom – spunky, affectionate, witty and smart as smart can be. She showed her babies all they need to know to train us biped ‘monkeys’. We recently lost her to an illness that couldn’t be cured. We tried it all and will always miss her.
Onyx is our favorite community cat, who adopted us about 4 years ago. He is a very lovable boy and only lives in our yard – by choice. My husband built a bed for him that is off the ground and safe from wind, rain and sun. In the mornings, he comes running with his tail up in the air as soon as we open the door to the backyard, then he flops on the ground belly up, looking forward to getting pet. – that’s more important to him than being fed. He enjoys his outdoor life and we accept that. He is the king of our little outdoor jungle and invites his friends Red, Pebbles and YumYum to come have breakfast with him. Since we didn’t want any unwanted kittens we went through the Trap/Neuter/Return program with him and the others at FixNation.org – which is a fabulous organization and worth checking out!
