When she was just three weeks old, Luna’s family found her wandering along the side of the road.
The family decided to adopt her and for the last 15 years they have smothered her in love and attention.
So much so that for the cat’s 15th birthday her family decided to do something extremely special – they threw her a quinceañera.
A quinceañera is a cultural tradition and a right of passage where a girl’s 15th birthday is marked with a lavish party – mainly celebrated in the Latin American community.
Luna’s family decided that she needed a celebration.
“Luna is an absolute sweetheart, loves curling up with people and loves laying on her back on the floor,” Angel Olavarria, Luna’s brother, said. “We have spoiled her with abundant love and she has outlived all of our pets. On her 15th birthday we decided to give our little cheese ball a surprise quinceañera.”
Olavarril’s mom was the genius behind the idea and planned the party for almost a year before her cat’s birthday. She began working on plans for the party a week in advance and knew there would be lots food, cake and decorations.
Luna also had to be dressed up for the occasion, and was treated to a beautiful dress.
“My mom found the dress on Amazon,” Olavarria said. “I totally thought my mom was joking when she said she was going to order a dress for her, but my mom never jokes about our pets.”
The table was laid with a pink tablecloth, there were balloons and even flowers. The family just wanted their beloved cat to know how much she means to them.
When the big day finally arrived, Luna was dressed in her pink dress and sat at the head of the table.
There were 12 friends and family who got together to celebrate Luna’s big day. They partied for three hours as well as eating food, including a tradition tres leches cake.
Luna had a great day and was truly spoilt by everyone that loves her.
“She was such a good sport through the whole thing that we think she actually knew we were celebrating her,” Olavarria said “She loved it even more when we opened up a nice can of tuna for her.”
