Meet Murphy

Murphy showed up in the yard of a pet supporter. He didn't want anyone to touch him, so it took several months to develop a trusting relationship. Now he loves everyone!

Although he wasn't sure initially about coming inside after spending so long in the woods, he has decided that being a housecat is the best thing ever :) He uses his litter pan appropriately and will politely seek attention.

Murphy is very affectionate, loves to jump onto your lap and be held. He is devoted to his caretaker and loves all of the friends that visit. His purrs could vibrate them out of their chair :)

Murphy would do best in a home without small children or other cats. He seems to be indifferent to small dogs and may be fine with polite big dogs.

Prior to adoption, Murphy will be neutered and up to date on core vaccinations.

April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events at this time. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific pets. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple pets.

Whether kittens / cats come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be added if using our veterinarian. Additional fees for 3rd kitten vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies.
