Updates! Midnight the Three-Pawed Kitten

Wow. Just wow. Yet again, you all prove that the cat community is a kind and compassionate one.

Just two days ago, the Cat Connection posted a plea for funds to help provide a series of prosthetic paws to Midnight the three-pawed kitten. Well, in less than 48 hours, you all donated $1,109 via Midnight’s GoFundMe campaign!

Let that sink in. $1,109. WOW!

$1,109 is more than one third of our goal of $3,100!

With these funds, we’ll be able to afford Midnight’s first prosthetic paw and put a down payment on his second. As a growing kitten, Midnight will most likely need five, but this will allow him to start his journey to finally being able to catch that feather toy that’s been taunting him:

so close
Keep trying, buddy!

Midnight sends his sincerest thanks to all the kind cat people who have donated to his care, including a special shout out from his buddy, Sauerkraut Kitty. Thank you so much, Sauerkraut, for lending your star power to another little kitty in need!!

In other news, we’re so happy to report that Midnight is improving every day! The staff at the Cat Connection is working with Midnight to help him gain confidence, learn to play and trust humans. He still has a long way to go, but we’re sure that once Midnight has his prosthetics, he’ll be running with his kitten friends in no time.


If you have it in your heart to donate a few dollars to Midnight’s rehabilitation, please visit his GoFundMe page. Every penny donated will be spent on Midnight’s prosthetics, and you’ll receive updates on how the little guy is fairing as he continues to grow and learn about the world.

So thank you again to all of you who donated, shared or liked Midnight’s story! We’ll be posting regular updates, so please stay tuned.

For now, Midnight is TIRED. All this rehab is kicking his butt, but he’s told it’s good for him. And yes, he does sleep with his tongue out:

Sleepy kitten. Sleepy tongue.
