Happy Gotcha Day, Luna!

This Sunday (June 10) is Luna’s adoption anniversary, otherwise known as her “Gotcha Day”.

It has been seven years since I encountered her at the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter and she chose me. Here is her official shelter photo:

Luna has of course grown up a lot over the years, but in some ways she hasn’t changed much. Here are some very recent Instagram photos of her:

Please join me in wishing Luna a happy 7th Gotcha Day!
