Midnight & Maizey - posted 08/07/2013

From Jenn of South Euclid, OH

After losing our family house cat, Dinah, there was a great emptiness in our family. We decided to adopt a new cat. I found on the internet. I never knew I could browse pet profiles online until I found petfinder. We knew we wanted another black cat like Dinah so I browsed all black cats until I found Midnight. Something about the way the foster parent described him made him sound like the perfect cat for us, only he was bonded to his sister Maizey. We didn't want 2 cats, did we?

I took my kids to visit the foster home after being screened by PAWS, and it was love at first sight with Midnight. Even though the hose was full of all sorts of animals, I was drawn right to him. He was playful, outgoing and friendly. But where was Maizey?

She was more shy and fearful, and her foster mom said she didn't like to be held. We searched and found her, and I picked her up. To the foster mom's surprise, she settled in my arms and purred!

Then and there I knew we were going home with 2 cats.

Now, 6 years later we all couldn't be happier. Midnight continues to be everybody's best friend and has even learned to jump through a hoop. Maizey made friends with our beagle, Murphy and sleeps on my hip every night.

If we ever decide to adopt another pet, PAWS and will be our first stop.
