Murray has a heart-warming background story. He was rescued from a kill-shelter in New Orleans. Jefferson Parish Animal shelter was happy to take part in a transport where 100 other cats and dogs were relocated from New Orleans. With the help of a grant from Petfinder.com and some very dedicated volunteers, a bus was retro-fitted for cages and sent to New Orleans to aid some very crowded animal shelters and rescue groups. Over 100 animals were settled in cages and travelled to the Midwestern states with the hopes of finding forever homes. Purrfect Friends took in 14 of the cats . That was in 2011. Murray was part of this group.
Murray came to Jefferson Parish with an injured eye. They performed surgery to save the eye, but he is blind in it. He is a little bit of a sad case! He is very affectionate though, but may take a little time to adjust to new situations.
Murray was adopted in 2011 but a year later his owner passed away. Her parents took care of Murray but now they are moving and can no longer keep him. They have taken great care of him. He is still friendly and sweet. He is adjusting to his foster home, but would be happier in a home of his own! He is a talker and will flop over to be petted. He loves attention and is doing well with the other foster cats. He is lovely and he loves belly rubs! Our vet looked at his eye and confirmed that it was ok and not bothering him.
Murray is an affectionate sweet, big boy. He loves to play and especially loves to cuddle.
