Found several months ago malnourished and underweight, "Midnight" is a black cat available for adoption through the town's Animal Shelter, 211 One Rod Highway.

Former Selectman Sherri Steeneck showed off the feline at her regular pet-adoption segment of Wednesday's Board of Selectmen meeting.

"She's very gentle," Steeneck said of Midnight, who is estimated to be about 3 years old. When she was found, she was wearing a purple collar.

Steeneck initiated the "Wednesday's Pet" program while serving as acting first selectman, and even though she no longer serves on the board has continued to bring a pet from the shelter once a month to highlight the homeless animals available for adoption.

All but one of the strays featured in the program have been adopted so far, Steeneck said.
