Meet Carol Ann Ormes, Crab Kate and Jonathon Livingston Crab.
In August 1976 Carol purchased Kate and Jon at two different stores along a boardwalk in Maryland. Their shells were the size of the tip of her pinky. 35 years later, in 2011, Crab Kate passed away.
Today Jon and Carol still live together in Miami Florida and August 2020 they will celebrate 44 years together!
