Cats arrive at Crash's Landing after enduring all kinds of circumstances. Midnight Cowboy's path to the shelter has been one of the toughest. Now, he needs a permanent home. Please adopt Midnight Cowboy!

Crash's Landing is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue center.  Since opening in Grand Rapids in 2002, Crash's Landing has helped more than 2,500 cats. But there is still work to be done.

Each Friday on 100.5 The River is Purrrfect Friday, where we feature a cat from Crash's Landing that needs a home.

This week, we're spotlighting Midnight Cowboy.

The story of Midnight Cowboy is over five years in the making. He was abandoned and left on the streets for five long years. During that time he was given some shelter in the winter, but still largely had to take care of himself.

Midnight Cowboy wasn't the nicest cat for a while, but as the years on the streets made him increasingly weaker, he grew much friendlier.

Finally, he was brought to Crash's Landing where he was treated for a variety of ailments. He was flea-ridden, suffering from a nasty cat bite abscess on his back and had torn a nail completely off to the point that the toe had become very swollen, painful and infected. He also tested FIV+.

In just one month, Midnight Cowboy has come a long way. If any cat deserves a second chance, it's him. Please adopt Midnight Cowboy!
