Meet Murphy (Brown)!

Murphy's story begins with when we rescued her mother Molly, a calico, in early March 2014. We were contacted by people who were feeding her and were worried because she had a badly infected wound on her rear and was very pregnant. They could not afford to take Molly to a vet.

So we took Molly in to see a vet and placed her in a foster home so she could be treated with antibiotics, heal up, and have her babies in safety. Around midnight March 22 and into the early hours of March 23, Molly gave birth to five kittens, including Murphy, the only female.

Murphy is a sweet cat - eager to play but also keen to be pet and snuggle. She would enjoy living in a home with another cat (or cats). She likes to eat so her food intake will need to be monitored (feed her in meals rather than leaving food out all the time).

She and her littermates have been spayed (or neutered), microchipped for identification, and vaccinated against rabies and are up to date on their FVRCP vaccinations. Their mom tested negative for FeLV and FIV (two cat diseases) on intake and again when she was spayed, so her babies should be negative as well.

Her adoption fee is $40. Adopters must plan to keep her safe indoors. Email us if you would like us to bring Murphy to our adoption event Satrudays 1-5pm at the College Station Petsmart (back by the cat litter) so you can meet her.

About BCS Spay

About Our Rescue Group...

We target companion animals least likely to be spayed/neutered - those with low-income owners and stray cats - and help them get fixed so they do not contribute to pet overpopulation. Sometimes some of the cats we help cannot safely be returned to where they were found - for example they are sick or injured or multiple cats have been run over in the area. We rescue these cats, get them well, and find them safe, indoor homes. We rely on private donations and adoption fees to fund our program. We almost always spend more on vet care than the adoption fees we charge.

Our Adoption Process...

Email us at for an adoption application. You must have permission from your landlord if renting. Any other pets must be spayed/neutered and up to date on their shots. You must plan to keep the cat indoors. Once you application is approved (usually within a day or two), we will arrange for you to meet with a cat or kitten that fits what you are looking for. The adoption contract requires you to return the cat to us if you are ever unable to keep him/her for any reason. Adoption fees range from $40-80. Cats and kittens have been spayed/neutered, microchipped for identification, and are up to date on their shots (FVRCP and rabies).
