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 BCSSpayDay@gmail.com 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.
