If you are looking for a kitty to adore you, here is your guy in good time! Murphy is a handsome black gentle cat whose wish is to find a guardian with the savvy and patience to bring out his inner lap cat. At times he outwardly asks for affection while at other times he is timid. He submits easily to being picked up and held for short periods, suggesting that if you can show him it is safe he will stay forever. Although he does well with other cats, he can be dominant with them at times. He'd probably do well with a confident yet submissive companion, or with a loving cat-friendly dog. Because Murphy is shy, he's not a good candidate for living with children younger than teenagers, and even they will have to exercise patience to help him blossom. Give Murphy a chance, and he will undoubtedly repay you with bountiful affection and excellence! We estimate that he was born in early April 2008. Bio# 2730C MB
