Luna was adopted from RAPS as a kitten 10 years ago. When her owner passed away, she was taken in and cared for by the owner's daughter. The daughter has now moved to Europe for a few years, and so at the beginning of July Luna came back to RAPS.

She was still a little nervous about her surroundings and new faces when I met her last week, but it looks like she's going to be a sweetheart. She may even move to the No. 5 Rd. Shelter for adoption when they have more room.

  1. I know it would not be fair with the other kittens but I'd love to see some more of her!

  2. So sad that she would lose her home at ten years of age. Now she will have so many changes to adapt to as well as many cats to contend with. That's alot of change for a senior cat that was also an only cat.Hope she gets out of there quickly and gets adopted into a loving home!
