Facts about Midnight

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: Midnight
  • Hair: Short
Midnight is a sweet young girl who desperately wants to be someone’s forever friend. She would spend hours snuggling under your chin if you would let her. She has the habit of treating you like a member of her cat family and will sometimes give little love bites and head butts. For this reason, I would not recommend that she be adopted into a home with young children who would not understand her actions.

She is starting to show that she wants to be the boss of the house and will sometimes cause trouble with the resident cats in her foster home. She seems to enjoy the company of her sister, Twinkle, and another foster cat named Daisy, but other than that she would likely prefer to be by herself.

Midnight likes all kinds of toys and is very inquisitive. She wants to explore everything! However, after a little while exploring she will come back and look for you, wanting your attention.

Midnight was born May 2015. She is spayed, current on vaccines and tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Midnight has also been micro-chipped.

About Our Rescue Group...

The 4Paws Rescue Team is a nonprofit community-based all volunteer organization that takes in neglected, abandoned, abused and unwanted cats and kittens.

An animal rescued by 4Paws will never be euthanized except out of medical necessity.

Additionally, 4Paws is dedicated to supporting the management of populations and improving the health of feral cat colonies. 4Paws volunteers also hold seminars in local schools to teach children the importance of responsible pet care.

4Paws is a qualified public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are fully tax deductible as allowed by law. A copy of our FY2005 annual report may be viewed by clicking here.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fairs are held once or twice a month at various PETCO stores in Northern Virginia. The adoption fairs are usually held on Saturday’s from 1:00 to 5:00. Between 30 and 60 cats and kittens are shown for adoption at each fair—with the larger fairs generally occurring April through October.

While they are waiting to find permanent loving homes, our cats temporarily live in foster homes. The foster families bring the cats and kittens to the adoption fairs to be seen by potential adopters. Applicants have the opportunity to handle the cats and in some cases, meet the foster parents who can provide additional insight into a cat’s habits and personality.

Our Adoption Process...

At the adoption fairs, if you meet a kitten or cat that you want to adopt, you will be asked to complete an application and contract and leave a check for the adoption fee ($120 for an adult or $145 for un-neutered kitten of which $50 is a deposit that is refunded after you provide 4Paws proof of sterilization). We ask that you pay the adoption fee up front at the fairs in order to “put a hold” on the cat until your application is processed. If your application is not approved, your check is returned to you.

Neither cats nor kittens are sent to their new homes on the day of the fair. It usually takes 4-5 days to process the application before the cat can go to his or her adoptive home. Pre-approval is an option, though. To accelerate the adoption process, you can fax a completed application and contract to us at 703-560-9795 a few days before the fair. Adoption Applications are available on this website.
