The family found the kitty wandering on the side of the road when she was just 3 weeks old. “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,” Angel Olavarria, Luna’s brother, told The Dodo.

Everything a proper quinceañera should have was there – think lots of food, decorations, cake, balloons, and so on. Oh, and Luna even had a perfect little outfit like every other 15-year-old girl would.

“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,” Olavarria said “She loved it even more when we opened up a nice can of tuna for her.”
