Midnight, the Shack Cat

Some of you saw her when I wished everyone a happy Halloween...
Well, this little girl has been working her magic on me...and I'm falling for her big time!
She's been coming into the work shack, the nights I work and she snuggles up on my shoulder and neck and rubs noses with me!
She really likes her little bed to curl up in to!
I might have to change my 'handle' sometime in the near future...

She has the eyes of an old soul, so mysterious and pretty.

Yes, I think you will need a new name!! How cute! Are you the only one that cares for her in the shack or can she become a shack cat with joint custody??

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

Midnights story is she is one of two cats that hang around here...they have no official home...
The other one is named Rosebud, she is also black, but has a big white spot on her chest, she is truly a feral.
Both cats are possibly related, they were trapped when they were younger and at least both got spayed.
Supposedly, Rosebud was put up for adoption, but escaped and found her way back to this area!
For a reason that only Midnight knows...
She decided to trust the former Lead here and when I came on board, she decided to trust me as well...
He always had food for them and so do I.
I started adding l-lysine to their canned food as I noticed Rosebuds eyes goobering up really bad earlier in the summer...
Rosebud only runs away about 15-20 feet now when I get the canned food out...she used to streak off!
Midnight and I have really bonded...she really likes to do the chin rub and head butt on me!
As far as I know, she's around two years old...
That she's survived this long with the owls, coyotes, and all the other predators around here, is testament to the fact, that this tiny, delicate little girl is a survivor!!
I've been trying to think of some other names that might fit her, as she hasn't figured out that 'Midnight' is her!
I've just been calling her 'Pretty Girl' for now!!
Other names: Onyx, Jet, Inky, Little Foot, Tiny Dancer...
Suggestions welcome!! :p
