Murphy & Mitchell

My husband desperately wanted a pet and couldn't get me to agree to it. One day, he said we were going to the Humane Society and that was it!  Once we walked into the kitten room, the first one I saw was Murphy the orange tabby. I put my face close to his cage and he grabbed my hair right away and started playing with it. It was love at first sight. When we brought him home we took pictures and video of him like he was a new baby!

Five or so months later, we decided Murphy needed a playmate so we went back to the Humane Society and met Nibbler the black and white kitty. Once in the viewing room with him, I held him close, and he licked my face (still does!). We knew he should be ours. I renamed him Mitchell. Our cats are a large part of our lives, and bring us both happiness every day.

Thank you to the Humane Society for taking care of our boys on their way to us!  Both are happy, well-fed, love to sleep and enjoy their perch high atop the kitty tree.
