Katherine is active duty Navy, based out of Virginia. She’s been in service for several years and, together with her spouse, decided to commemorate the holidays and New Year by giving a shelter pet a second chance at life. Little did Katherine know that she would be inspired to save not one, but two such lives.

Midnight is an ebony-furred, four-year-old cat and Lucky is also four. Lucky sustained amputation of his toe following a cancer diagnosis, but so far is cancer-free.
