🌙 Midnight ~2005 to 10th Sep 2020. ❤️
I remember meeting Midnight for the first time. He was an aggressive, timid and a hissy cat. He was very prone to flu, and it’s impossible to give medication to him without getting your eyes scratched out, so his medication was mixed with his food and placed inside a cage so the other cats could not eat it.
Fast forward to 2018, the shelter moved to a new place. He was still this aggressive, and timid cat. He had a good friend, Clive, who’s always by his side. Unfortunately Clive passed away due to a heart failure in 2019. Midnight was then left all alone without his friend. He’s always sleeping inside the litter box. He would always let other cats eat first cos he doesn’t want to fight & get boxed in the face. I decided to become friends with him. He would cringe and move back whenever my hand came towards him to pet him. When he finally trusted me a little, he will let me pet his head. Beneath that timid demeanour, was a sweet and gentle cat who just wants to be loved. I made up my mind to adopt him when I move to my new house, which will be next year. However, he got really sick in Apr 2020, from a severe flu and a chronic asthma attack. I decided he would come home with me then. He was sweet to the other cats, who were not so nice to him. 😅 He was especially drawn to Lilou, one of my black cats, because maybe Lilou reminds him of Clive. Then he got closer to Da Bai, one of my old cats in the house. They got along pretty well.
