"You've got to meet Murphy!"

Murphy is one of the most unique kitties that has ever lived at Cat World. He is quite content to spend the day tucked into one particular cubby. It's his safe place and happy place. Tempting him to come out of his very own fortress is a little beyond his comfort threshold at this time, but don't let that deter you. Grab a wand toy and dangle it by the portal to Murphy's lair, and get ready for some fun!

Murphy the handsome tiger kitty loves his toys.

While Murphy is very reluctant to come out of his 'safe place', he is delighted when people stop by and visit with him. He can't get enough head rubs and even likes his belly tickled. Murphy makes the most of his play time and his throaty purr rumbles out of his cave, even if you can't quite see him.

Murphy is a young cat. We estimate he is around 2 or 3 years old. He came to the Sanctuary in the fall of 2018 and was pretty scared. But slowly, very slowly, Murphy is getting comfortable and his playful nature is starting to show.

Thanks to your support, Murphy is safe while we look for his special someone. And because we know that every pet is an individual, we are in no rush to push Murphy out of his comfort zone. With time and love, Murphy has already made great progress. His caregivers expect that one of these days they will open the door to his cattery, and Murphy will be on the floor asking where his supper is.
