Murphy

Murphy was born about 8 weeks ago on

a farm here in Mason County.  His mother

was fed and allowed to be an outdoor

mouser cat.  Naturally the farmer did not

want to be bothered by trapping and getting

the mother cat spayed under our free feral

fix and release program.  Nope, he handled

the kittens in the same way his father had.

Murphy’s litter mates were all killed by a

very accurate gun.  Murphy was lined up

in the sights of the man’s gun when a lady

happened to see what was going to happen.

“Stop” she shrieked, and got a box, caught

the terrified kitten, and brought him to our

shelter.  Since we are closed for new intakes

naturally we could not take this kitten.  If

you believe that you don’t know us very

well.  Murphy hissed and cried that first

day until we held a bowl of wet food

under his chin.  He gulped it down and

then curled up in the back of the carrier.

That was three days ago, and he has now

progressed to allowing himself to be

cuddled in a towel, and held for as

long as any of our volunteers have

time.  There is no law forcing the man

to get the mama cat spayed.  As you

can see Murphy is a very pretty kitten

and will soon be looking for a forever

home.                       Granny Kat, Norma
