Pet Stories: Midnight

Midnight Midnight's story is truly special!

I am a barmaid, with many stray cats of all kinds that frequent my place of employment! I had just gotten divorced, put my beagle of 18 years to sleep.

I have never had a cat before, so I was, and still am so new at her friendship, but it is amazing! So anyway, I did pray to my Mother, who has been gone in heaven for 27 years to send me a little kitten. I was not working that day, but I came in to see some friends.

(By the way, Midnight is sitting on my lap as I type, I swear she thinks that she can too!)

I walked in, and this tiny kitten kept running up my leg to my neck, she was so weak, and starving, full of fleas, and scared! I would put her down, she would run right up, the funny this is, is that I was wearing all black, and she is all black, and the time was Midnight! So I took her home with me, nursed her back to health, got rid of the fleas, had her spayed, and she is the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen. She will sit, if I say so, she retrieves her toys for me to play with her, and she does not have a mean streak in her ever! She has given me such hope, and happiness, I could not bear to be without her!

Thank you for listening everyone, and remember, a friend in life does not have to be human!

Take care and remember to treasure what you have today, for tomorrow it may not be there!
