Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-cat rescue

October 31st 1995


I love to have my belly rubbed and to be spun around on the floor by Dad. I also like to sit outside in the cat enclosure and watch the fish swim. BEST FRIEND: Ratter

(1) Tugging on my one white whisker--Dad likes to do this to tease me. (2) Being pestered by that youngster "Baby Baby"!

Favorite Toy:
I love my scratchy ramp laced with fresh catnip. I can scratch and stretch on it all day long. Sometimes I like to take a nap on the ramp--it's comfy.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Anywhere near my Mom but especially at her feet on the recliner. I also enjoy taking a nappy in the sun by the water garden with my fish friend "Zataran."

Favorite Food:
Whiskers, Friskies (blue can). (I was very fortunate not to have any of that tainted food!)

I am a great Guard Cat; good as any dog. I let out a warning growl when someone is approaching our home. I'm also a great kisser. I give nibbler kisses and I will hold you tight with my paws.

Arrival Story:
We thank all of you for your condolences and gifts for our Midnight who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 7-14-14. ************** Midnight showed up during the week of Halloween--scared to death. He hid underneath the house and would not come out. We were very patient with him. We would sit outside and talk softly to him and then one day I started singing "Amazing Grace" and he slowly approached me. I continued to feed him and sing to him and then one day he let me touch him. It took us a long time to win his trust. Midnight is terrified of the rustling sound of plastic grocery bags and runs whenever he sees a large lawn bag. I believe a man had him in a plastic bag and was going to use him as a sacrifice.

Midnight has beautiful golden eyes, white whiskers, and soft black hair. Midnight's favorite pose is to lie down with has arms crossed across one another. Stately!

It's been a month. We love you Midnight. Constant in our thoughts. I feel selfish; I should let you go. It is so hard. It's true, you don't know what you had until it's gone. My constant companion. I do little more than work and sleep and look at your pictures. I have an altar for you with a candle that I keep lite. For ever loved; never forgotten.

Dear God, thank you for Midnight.

For my Midnight

My heart is in the frost, little one, for thou hast left me,
and gone to the land where walks already thy mother and all thy kin.
Thou hast left me alone to mourn thee, my little man,
and I will not be comforted.

20 years thou dwelt with me, and I loved thee always,
I knew no other like unto thee - forever will thy place be empty.
Forever wilt thy presence be missed, and always will there be sadness
when thoughts of our loss do come.

Forgive me, little one, for your last hours, I kept you as long as I could;
Then those dreaded words -- it's time to do what is best.
My lost is greater, I hope greater than yours. I would not want you to shake
your head in disbelief and nonacceptance. Even now, late at night I
sit here alone, alone and missing you. Tears, sniffles, hurt.
I know that there is a God and prayers are answered. I know I will see you again.
I love you Midnight.

Thou wast with me during the times that tried heart and soul, I miss thee with each day,
and look to your haunts, and hope to find you.

Old age will finally dim both sight and mind,
but memory of thee will last throughout -
I pray God of His infinite mercies to let me see you again
when it is my turn to leave this Earth.

Oh, how I hope that thou woke to find thyself with the Maker!
I hope that now He rubs your soft ears as I used to do!
I pray that one day we shall be together again if it is His will.

Then know, my beloved cat, that truly thou wilt not be forgotten -
Truly, you live on in my heart and mind.
It is my desire that one day our ashes will be mingled and we will be together again forever.



Missing You Midnight

My heart aches. I miss you my friend.
I miss falling to sleep while holding your hand
I miss holding you on my shoulder.
I miss you lying at my feet while I was on the computer
I miss you staring at me while I eat; I eat alone most of the time now.
I miss the bathroom visits.
I miss you greeting me at the door when I come home.
I miss rubbing your belly.
I miss your sneezes.
I miss looking into your eyes.
I miss your smell.
I miss the way you would reach out and touch me.
I miss your love nibbles.
I miss your meow.
I miss you always being where I was.
Daddy misses you too.
