Try to picture this: the morning routine, in front of the bathroom mirror, with the cat in the sink batting at the mascara brush as you try to apply it to your lashes. That’s how every day starts for Callin, who adopted the water-loving Luna when she was just a kitten. That was six years ago, when Callin first cuddled Luna at the Animal Humane Society. The little black and white kitten with the bright pink nose had fallen in the water dish and was soaking wet, so Callin tried to warm her up. She snuggled Luna in her jacket where she fell asleep. The bonding had begun even before the adoption paperwork was done.
Since then, Luna has enriched Callin’s life with lots of love, mischief and silliness. She went through college with Callin, and now they share an apartment. Luna is a very social cat that loves to talk and demands attention, sometimes by knocking things over to make a statement. “I’ve had friends who say they’re not cat people and they say they like her because she acts like a dog,” Callin says. “Anyone who sees us together sees the bond that we have. I am thankful every day for her being in my life.”
