BOO! A black cat needs a home!

Eileen’s dad died and she needs to find a home for his black cat, Midnight.
I wrote about Midnight a couple of weeks ago but no one has responded. Thanks to Bob Solotar for checking on this and recommending that I give it another shot.

Dear Gary:
I have been trying to find a home for my Dad’s 5-year-old cat, Midnight. Dad was a Pearl Harbor Survivor and such an animal-cat lover. He had 7 cats/kittens when he died in May. All of these cats adopted my Dad. With the help of my students and Dad’s neighbors, I’ve placed all the cats except a young mama Siamese and Midnight.

Every day I go over to Dad’s house, feed Midnight and let him roam about the backyard. He prefers to stay indoors. The house is being sold. It is on the market. Midnight isn’t dealing well with strangers wandering thru HIS house. Midnight doesn’t understand what happened to Dad and what he did wrong to deserve such crazy treatment. He’s a love-a-lap meowing kitty.

I would take Midnight if I could. The neighbors are caring for the mama Siamese at the moment. Can you ask your readers if someone can adopt Midnight? He’s just 5, jet black, fixed, fluffy and loves to eat. He slept with Dad every night. The house is empty. He sleeps on a blanket on the floor. The animal shelter is NOT a good solution. Thanks.

The information I promoted in today’s Times’ column — about the lovebird found in an Oakley back yard, plus two more cats that need home because their human has asthma, is below. Just scroll down a little.

** If any of these animals catches your fancy you and you take one home, please let me know which one so I can tell my readers it worked out. Thanks.

You can e-mail me at Thanks. /Gary
