Midnight was our family cat. She wandered out to our house when I was in middle school, and older kitten that was nothing but skin and bones. Midnight lived somewhere between 17-19 years catching anything small that moved and protecting the area around the house from unwanted guests of both the rodent kind and the other stray cat kind.
She had been in failing health for the past few months, but her blood work was all normal, it was just old age kicking in. She could barely walk Wednesday but wanted outside so mom let her go. She watched as Midnight crossed the road and headed up the hill in front of the house assuming she would never see her again. Sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon, she came home, curled up in her spot beside the flower bed and passed away. I guess she had to make that daily trip just one more time. Midnight will be greatly missed.
