Brown Tabby

Drinking out the toilet, we had to always leave the seat up for her.

Favorite Toy:
She didin't play with much toys at all. But Murr was always a good at catching and killing mice.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Murr was a mountain lion, laying atop of the cupboard. On top of the bed, her favorite in livingroom was the chair and sometimes on my lap.

Favorite Food:
Murr was being fed medical food and didin't liked at all. We had to mix some of her regular food with it. But she loved her kibbles!! Murr enjoyed are chicken and beg for some.

Arrival Story:
My mom and grandma use to go shopping at the Goodwill every Saturday. Alot of times I would go with them. I was 8years old and even my brother went but not my dad. Then after that we would go into the Restaurant for something to eat. The lady that worked in the store had a tabby girl. She was very sweet and friendly. It would greet everyone that came in and just loved being petted. She never tooked the cat home at night, left her all by herself and was in the dark each night. The owner was moving away and couldn't take the cat with her. Had to find a new home for Murr. There someone that was interested in taking Murr but the person never showed up. She offered us the kitty and we had to let her know if we wanted her. We talked it over as a family and all of us agreed that we would take her. We all went down to pick her up on Saturday. The lady put her in a box with no problem at all and we went into the restaurant to have something to eat. She was scared, nervous and getting very anxious in the box. Me, dad and my brother went home with her and I carried the box all the way home. Was almost home and she almost got loose out from the box. Her paws was sticking through and I could see her face. But we made it safety home without her escaping out. I let Murr out and she was very curious, exploring every inch of the livingroom. Was soo scared in her new place! I couldn't find her anywhere, I looked in every possible place that she could hide in. Finally we found her beside the cupboard and stove.

Ever since we had her, Murr never liked any adults that she didn't know too well but loved her family very much. Didn't mind kids at all and when my friends would come over and Murr would hang around them alot. They even picked her up. I don't know what happened to her but maybe she was abused by an adult person. Any family members that came over and she didn't like at all. Murr would be sitting by the hallway door so no one could passed by her. She hissed and growled at them. We always have to get her so they could by without being threaten by her. I think Murr was protecting her family. Never gain any weight and always was skinny all her life. We noticed that she was drinking more water, losing lots weight and peeing everywhere. One time I was petted her and all I could feel is her bones and ribs. My mom made the approinment with the Vet. The Veteriarian took blood, did some test and got an urine sample. It was bad news and Murr was diagnosis with kidney disease. We started the treatment right away, the Vet did put her on intravenous and flush out all the toxin out of her body. They kept her in for a few days. We had to give her pills two times a day, no problem giving her the medicine at all. She had to be fed medical food and that was a problem Murr wouldn't eat it so we had to take her off it and fed her the regular cat food. Didn't want her to starve. After the treatment, never got fatter. Murr was good for 1year and but started to go down hill after that. Couldn't control her bladder and started peeing on my mom bed. Had a hard time keeping her food down, losing her teeth, couldn't walk too good anymore and falling off the freezer everytime she would jump up there. It was time to let her go and made the decision to have her putdown. The hardest thing to do but I didn't want to see her suffered anymore and she was in alot of pain. On Jan 28/2000 had Murr put at at the age of 13. I feel really bad that I didn't say good bye to her for the last time and I wish that I had of. We all miss her murr and you will alway be in are hearts. We love you!
