Although we all know that death is a part of life, well it is never an easy aspect to deal with, especially when someone you love leaves this Earth.
It is with deep sadness that I am here to tell you that our amazing cat Midnight has passed away. This actually occurred last Tuesday, but I have not had a chance to report on it, and actually, I just didn’t really feel like it.
Midnight has been a member of our family since I turned four… he was my birthday present! We did not know his exact age at the time, but he was at least 1 or 2, making him around 20(+) years old at the time of his passing. We bought him from an animal shelter in the early 1990s and was and continued to be a true blessing to our family.
I know that every pet owner is bias about their own pet (understandable!) But I mean it when I say this was one of the best cats that has ever lived! He was incredibly friendly, feisty (in the best way!), playful, he loved to be around people and cuddle. He provided us all with comfort, company and support… Midnight was our companion, he stuck with you.
It’s safe to say that he was the “Main Man” of our house too. He did what he wanted and we would not have had it any other way
Midnight had not been doing well this past year. His age was showing and I am pretty sure he was on his 200th or so “life” by now… forget 9 lives, he was way past that! I know he was in some pain the last few months, and he is now in a better place and at peace. But that does not mean I don’t miss him… that does not mean that my family- his mom, dad, brothers and sister, don’t miss him more than he knows.
Midnight was beyond a simple house pet, he was not just a cat… He was a member of our family, has been with us through all of these years, I grew up with him. Oh goodness Midnight, how I am going to miss you. I love you my dear kitty.
This video was made by my brother Russell several years ago…. why yes we are obsessed with this cat!! It’s all about the Midnight- The Man, The Myth, The Legend… enjoy, it’s just a fun little bit
Do you own a pet or did you? Tell me about him or her!
If you do not have a pet, would you like one? What kind?
Rest in peace Midnight <3
