Meow! My name is Murphy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Tan Or Fawn Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
Murphy is a very regal and distinguished gentleman with dramatic gold and black stripes and white markings. He is an independent guy who does not give his heart away to just anyone. But he is affectionate with people he lets into his circle: once he gets to know you, he'll tell you his story and will answer when you call him by name. In his foster home he learned to get along with other kitties and even dogs, and he loves to sit in a sunny window and watch people and cars and birds go by. He loves to have his ears rubbed, but is not comfortable yet with being picked up. Murphy loves treats; his favorite toys are laser lights and anything with strings or feathers. He loves to play, and then curl up and take a nice long nap in a secret place.
More information about Branford Compassion Club
Branford Compassion Club (BCC) is a non-profit feline
rescue organization that serves not only Branford, CT,
but surrounding shoreline towns. The mission of the club
is to provide for the feeding, shelter and care of homeless,
abandoned and feral cats; to educate the public about the
importance of spay/neuter population control, responsible
pet ownership and kindness to animals; and to establish an
ongoing community network to achieve these goals.
Branford Compassion Club was founded in November 1997,
by a handful of compassionate Branford residents concerned
with the growing population of feral cats. The residents
united to form BCC to alleviate the hunger and suffering
of feral cats in this community.
The Branford Compassion Club is an all volunteer organization, and as such we are only able to be open on Saturdays from 11-3. If you need to come in at a different time, please call and we would be happy to set up an appointment with you.
At the Branford Compassion Club, we do require a potential adopter to fill out an application, which includes vet history and references, and is then reviewed by an officer of the shelter. Adoptions may happen the same day, if possible. There is an adoption fee of 125$ for adult cats and 150$ for kittens, this fee helps to offset the cost of all the medical procedures done prior to adoption such as:
Medically checked by a veterinarian
Tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS
De-wormed and De-fleaed
Vaccinated against Distemper and Rabies (over 3 months of age)
The adoption fee also helps us to intake another cat once the space from your new family member opens up.
