He is a character!

MURPHY is a long, lean, and handsome tabby with tons of personality. He's a happy fellow who loves to purr and greet you at the door when you get home. Murphy is an active boy who needs a like-minded male buddy to bond and play with.

Murphy's favorite morning activity is to sit by window, smell the air, and watch the birds outside. In the afternoons, he likes to lounge near the windows in the sun or in his favorite chair. Murphy also likes a good game of chase, whether it's with the other cat in his foster home, or by himself. He can keep himself entertained, too, and likes to knock his toy balls around his home.

Murphy needs a moderately active home with room to play and where he will get quality people interaction. He needs an adult-only home (with no babies or young children down the road) or a home with older kids who want to play, but understand how to handle his sometimes playful personality. We have not seen Murphy interact with dogs so we aren't sure how he would do.

Murphy is a truly wonderful cat who will be someone's loyal companion.

Note: Murphy is shown in photos with the other cat in his foster home, Poe.
