June 10 is Luna’s Gotcha Day, or the anniversary of her adoption.
Here is her official adoption photo from Santa Cruz County Animal Services, back in 2005:
This photo had not yet been posted when I went to the shelter on June 9, 2005. I was browsing the kennels and this charming little black kitty came up and greeted me. It was perfect, I knew I really wanted a black cat. It turned out she had just come up for adoption after being surrendered to the shelter by her previous family. I played with her for a bit, and said I would think about it overnight, even though that wasn’t really necessary. The next morning, June 10, I called the shelter to hold her for adoption, and I picked her up and brought her to her new home that afternoon.
She has been such a joy for the last three years. I get verkempt thinking about how I found the ketzela and brought her into my life.
We have since left behind that first home. But she has truly shined in her new life as an elegant and sophisticated city cat:
Please join me in wishing Luna a happy 3rd Gotcha Day!
