Luna was found alone in a cornfield when she was only 5 weeks old, and three days later, she found her forever home and quickly settled in. Her new family already had another cat, Shayla, and figured Luna would learn and take cues from her. They’d always just leave Shayla’s food out and let her eat whenever she was hungry, and figured that method would work for Luna too — until they realized exactly how much she loves food.
“When we first got Luna we open-fed her,” Tarin Tanner, Luna’s mom, told The Dodo. “That was a bad idea because she gained weight so fast and at one point the vet handed me a pamphlet on cat obesity. That's when I knew she had to go on a stricter diet.”
