Special and Unique Little Girl
My name is Midnight. I’m sure I got that name because my fur is as black as night.
Yes, I’m another black kitty looking for a home. Sigh. We always seem to be the last kitties to find homes. People come to visit, but they always go right to the pretty tabbies and calicos. I just sit in my corner, dark and unnoticed.
Every once in a while, there is a visitor who walks and in makes a beeline towards me. Those are the special people. I like those people very much. They are rare – but they are definitely out there.
The special humans see past our dark fur. Instead of just seeing a black blob, they notice our eyes – gold, green, flecked or speckled. They look at our noses and the pads of our paws – black, pink, grey, spotted or not. They see our ears – pointy, tipped, crinkled or notched. And they check out our whiskers – black, white, both, straight or curled. These are the people who take in the subtle differences in our coats. Yes, there are even different shades of black. And different undercoats. Take a look – you don’t know what you are missing!
We may be black kitties, but each of us is unique. I, myself, am unique. I could tell you about my eyes, nose, whiskers and paws. But I think that you need to experience them for yourself. Are you one of those special people? I’m one of those special kitties – come visit me and take in all my uniqueness.
