Meet Midnight

Midnight, a very social young male, was surrendered to the shelter in mid-August because his family was moving and could not take him with them. He broke our hearts, crying at the cat room door and looking for his family, scouring the cat room and barging into the adjacent bathroom to see if they might be hiding in some corner, as if it was all terrible mistake that led them to put him in a carrier and leave him in a shelter cage. But he’s now settled into life at the shelter, and though he finds it VERY boring for the most part, he is very happy whenever his volunteers are in to give him attention. He loves to pal around with us, helps us with our chores, supervises the dish washing and laundry folding, and when it’s time for a break from chores, he will claim a lap to get in his daily snuggles and kisses. When we exit the cat room into the office, he sits at the glass door crying for us, and then waits patiently for our return. And when we’re busy with a chore he doesn’t enjoy assisting, he’s happy to play with toys or sit on the windowsill to take in the day. He really likes being our sidekick, inspecting our work while we clean, and making sure we haven’t accidentally left any food in the can.He can get sassy sometimes, though.

As affectionate as he is — and he LOVES to be carried around and hugged and kissed — when he’s had enough, he might take a swat at your hand. But that behavior is true of most young cats. We really think the shelter environment is stressing him out and making him feel trapped.

Midnight is a little bit of a mystery of late. He was very good friends with his shelter mates Clarence, an older male cat, and Blackjack, a younger male cat, but then both were adopted. The boys were allowed a lot of liberty together, and loved running around together. They would spend the night out of their cages, and all be there together at the door in the morning to greet the volunteers. There was no need among the three for any to claim the “alpha” role. But his male cat friends were adopted, and the shelter recently had an influx of female cats and now Midnight seems to be very agitated by them. One of the new cats is definitely a pushy alpha female. We just can’t say for sure why this guy, who was great pals with two other male cats, is now suddenly agitated by other cats, which all happen to be female. And now that we can’t let him out with the lady cats, he is getting much less liberty than he used to.

Midnight is 3 years old, is neutered, box-trained, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee is $50. Fee may be paid by credit card or money order, payable to “Town of Scituate.” Personal checks are accepted from R.I. residents only, and no cash is accepted.
