Cat of the Week: Midnight in Washington, DC

Cat of the Week badge

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.

Anyone looking for a friendly little house panther? Midnight could just be your guy. He is 8 years old and very social, plus he’s got that great black coat. Midnight will greet you at the door when you come home, and he’ll meow back to you when you call him. Fun! He also enjoys playing with toys, and he gets along with other cats. Sometimes petting makes him a little nervous, so you do have to pay attention to his signals. For this reason, he might do better in a home with adults or older children who won’t force their attention on him. Midnight has to eat special food because of an allergy, but the food is available in most pet stores and online. He is also a “hidden gem,” which means his adoption fee is waived!

Midnight is currently in a foster home through the Humane Rescue Alliance. Find out more about him here, and to see more pictures, check out his Instagram account!
