“How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank! Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music creep in our ears: Soft stillness and the night become the touches of sweet harmony.”
– William Shakespeare, the Merchant of Venice, Act V, scene 1

It doesn’t take much after spending time with Luna, KCAC’s small black shorthaired rabbit, to realize what a spiritual soul she has. Although she was an owner surrender, KCAC staff is unsure of her age, even though her name comes from a rich history steeped in Roman mythology.
According to the story, Luna, the goddess of the moon rode her chariot across the night sky enveloped in the illumination of the moon, which served as her crown. The moon’s glow lit her path as she traveled to be reunited with her mortal husband.
What a lot of information for such a sweet and simple rabbit that’s just looking for a forever home! Luna loves getting petted and cuddled once she gets to know you. Since she is litterbox trained, she makes it easy to clean up after her.
If you’re not afraid to become a bit “moonstruck” by falling in love with little Luna, then come spend some time her. She’ll definitely brighten up your life!
Her adoption fee is $20.
Congratulations to Bubbs, KCAC’s 1-year-old brown and white domestic shorthair on finding the perfect forever family willing to give him all the love and petting he requires. You deserve the best, Bubbs!
