A family in Charlotte, North Carolina decided to throw their cat, Luna, a beautifully frilly quinceañera for her 15th birthday.
A quinceañera a is a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, typically involving a mass followed by a party.
Luna was just a 3 weeks old when Olavarria’s family rescued her off the streets and took her into their home.
“We love her to pieces and we wanted to do something special for her, so on her 15th birthday we decided to give our little cheese ball a surprise quinceañera,” Angel Olavarria said.
“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 celebration was attended by 12 members of family and friends and continued for 3 hours.
“She was such a good sport through the whole thing that we think she actually knew we were celebrating her. She loved it even more when we opened up a nice can of tuna for her,” Olavarria said.
The family is already planning her 16th birthday celebrtion.
“We are thinking about throwing her a sweet 16,” one of her owners, Brigitte Olavarria said. “Every additional year we get with our precious Luna deserves to be celebrated!”
