About Murray: I’m a shy boy but I am learning to trust. I have beautiful gold eyes and big soft ears that I love to have scratched. I am the cautious one in my little family and need other confident kittens or an adult cat(s) around for me to gain my confidence. I watch them to learn if it's ok to trust you. It's very important for me to have that dynamic. I’m food motivated so with a little patience I will learn that you are a positive thing for me. Then I’ll let you pet me and love me before and after meals, and eventually I will come for belly rubs if the other cats are getting loves too. I would do really d well with an older adult cat that is very nurturing and cuddly. I like to cuddle with them. I like to play and run all around the house. I really like my cat tree where I can be up high and watch what's going on below. I do not like to be picked up and held yet but am showing signs that I will eventually tolerate it for short periods. (Please be aware, some cats do not like to be held or picked up regardless of their upbringing. A cat is a cat and that is that.) I would do best with someone who has experience with shy cats and understand I just need some time and patience. My foster mom gives me lots of love when I ask for it now and she understands that sometimes I really just wanna do my own thing. If you have a quiet home with room for more than one cat I will grow into a very loving and loyal friend. I have been around a doggie. Honestly, not my favorite thing. This doggie isn't very big and he doesn't chase me so I keep an eye on him, growl a little when he gets too close. Other than that I think I can learn to tolerate him. Murray has been neutered, microchipped, tested negative for FIV/FeLV and has received age appropriate vaccinations. (His brothers are Alex and Bruno.)

Please understand, Companion Cats is made up of volunteers. Arrangements will need to be made to view our adoptable cats and kittens in person. Our adoption fee is $80.00 (or two for $120.00, over one-year-old.) Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue cat. Please also visit us on Facebook, @companioncatsinc

Additional adoption info

The first step in the process of adopting a pet from Companion Cats is to complete an adoption application. It provides information that enables us to assist you in the selection of a pet. Together, we will be able to determine if the adoption is in the animal’s best interest, and the process ensures that you will find an animal well-suited to your lifestyle.

Our $80.00 adoption fee for Adult cats (or $120.00 for two) and $100 adoption fee for Kittens (or $150 for two) includes the cost for general care while being fostered, microchipping, age appropriate vaccinations, testing for FIV/FeLV, and spaying or neutering of the animal. To be considered as an adopter, you must:

*Be at least 18 years old
*Have a valid driver’s license or Michigan Identification Card stating your current address
*Provide the name and phone number of your veterinarian
*Have the knowledge and consent of a landlord, if relevant (also provide the name and phone number of your landlord)
*Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper nourishment and care, as well as, training for a pet

More about this shelter

Companion Cats is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of volunteers. Our mission is to spay or neuter and find suitable homes for unowned cats, thus ending the suffering of abandoned and homeless cats living on the streets.

Once spayed our goal is to place them in an environment that best fits each cat. This method provides the most humane living situation possible. Both friendly and feral alike deserve the perfect forever home. If the cat is not very friendly but is homeless, perhaps this means being a “Barn Buddy” or being introduced into a controlled colony. If feral kittens are found, it might mean living in a volunteer foster home where they can be socialized until old enough to be tested for FIV & FeLV, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated prior to adoption
