I love laying in mom's arms and putting my face on hers
Having my nails trimmed
straws and cat nip bags
Favorite Nap Spot:
my momma's closet
she has a knack for pissing other kitties off, just by breathing..but she also has a uncanny ability to ignore them too!She also opens cabinets and locks herself inside. typical cat
Well, God laid it on my heart to get another cat. Initially I told my husband that I wanted a little orange kitten. But then I changed my mind after looking at all of the older cats on Petfinder.com. I decided that I wanted an older cat that no one else would take. I seen Murphy on Petfinder, but she wasn't orange. I decided I would go to the shelter to see a calico that I had seen. I was very nervous about how my other cats would react to another cat, since they are all family and very klanish, not to mention spoiled brats.
Anyway, as soon as I walked in the cat room, I heard this awful squalling. Yep it was Murphy. She was the first cat that I held and seemed so gentle. I went through the entire room and held each cat and the calico that I went to see. I tested each cat to see how they reacted to the cats around them and even though their descriptions all said they were great with other cats, they all hissed and blowed at the others. All but Murphy. I knew I had to be very careful, especially since I have a special needs kitty and I wanted to make sure that another cat wouldn't hurt or mistreat him in any way.
Anyway, I asked the shelter worker about Murphy's situation and she told me that her previous owner of 12 years just brought her there and dropped her off with no explaination. She checked all her records and she had been recently vetted and had been vetted all of her life (at one of the most expensive places around too!) We just couldn't understand why someone would do that after 12 years. She told me there was little to no chance that she would get adopted at her age and that done it...SOLD! Murphy was mine.
She has been here about 2 months and guess who her first friend was??? you guessed it, Sweetie my little special needs kitty. They hit if off right away, he has never hissed or blowed at her at all. I wish I could say that for the rest of them. Also, the previous owner must have let this kitty run around outside. I have had a terrible time breaking her from going outside. She got out on me the very first day and I freaked out. She came back though and hasn't been out since. We love Murphy, even though she really sticks out in this family..
Murphy isn't orange and white as you can see, but we love her anyway. She is a realy closet kitty and sleeps uptop on a sheet. She really loves Sweetie and Peyton and they have become fast friends. Marino and Peachy don't much like her, but I keep telling them they might as well get over themselves because she is here to stay.
