Happy Valentine’s Day !
We’d like to introduce you to Count Midnight !
You can tell by the picture why we named him Count Midnight !
He was a stray that started hanging around. It took us around a year for him to start trusting us. Then we noticed that he had a problem with one of his front legs. It looked like pus was coming out from puncture marks. Even though he had started to let us pet him a little bit, we had never picked him up. But with that infected leg, we knew we had to take the next step of picking him up and putting him in a carrier to see our vet. We got him to our vet who went ahead and treated his leg and gave him his shots while he was under getting neutered. We kept him inside while he recovered. During his recovery time, he got to know our other cats and what life was like on the inside of the house. At that time, we had thought that we weren’t going to adopt any more cats, we just wanted to make sure he was good to go on his own. The day came when it was okay to let him out and when we opened the door for him to leave he just sat there and looked at us like we were crazy. He had got a taste of what life was like on the inside and he was never going back outside again ! When we saw how much he wanted to stay inside we knew that the other cats had gained a new brother ! We were surprised when he took such a liking to our dog Benny.
(Sorry Benny’s decapitated-looking in this photo.)
He absolutely adores Benny ! He follows him around like a shadow. We never imagined that a cat off the streets and a dog from the shelter would become buddies. Count Midnight has been with us a little over a year now, making life a little more interesting and wonderful !
