have always been associated with the Moon. Like the Moon, they come to life
at night, escaping from humanity and wandering over housetops with their eyes
beaming out through the darkness.

is the smallest of the trio and she acts a little
differently than Star or Sun.
She is called "Moon" because she was the first of the three
to open her eyes, and they looked like little blue moons. She also
has a little golden crescent moon on her forehead. She is the eternal
kitten and loves to play and romp. She is very vocal. She loves to
leap up and sit on our shoulders. Sometimes she climbs up on a railing
post by the outside staircase and waits for one of us to walk down
the stairs so she can jump onto a shoulder and get a ride down. She
is obsessed with small rodents and has the ability to completely block
out any surrounding noises when she is hunting. This phenomena is
especially appearant when she is called to come in for the night.
There are times when I have called, and called, and called, and then
searched all over only to find that she had been very close by all
the while, poised in an ambush position, and completely oblivious
to my despiration! Moon has her own exclusive little drinking cup!
Her nicknames are: "Cakehole Moon", "Pifty", "Pazitty
Pifter", "Little Poof", "Pazooty Pooty",
"Piss Potty", "Puss Puss", or just "Puss".
She has recently discovered how fun it is to swat at the other cats
and send them flying off in terror.
moon never beams without bringing me dreams
