Feline Friday

This Feline Friday is super special, as we are celebrating a super special feline—our very own Cooper Murphy.

Five years ago today, we brought home a 12.1-pound cat, from the snow and our friends front porch. We spent several days trying to find his people with no luck. It became obvious that he had been “dumped.” Here are links to three of the first posts about him.

There are some other posts from that same time period. You can find links to them on the bottoms of the three listed.

And here’s an early photo, which I don’t believe I have ever posted.


Party Time

Angel Mau baked a cake for Cooper in his bakery at the Bridge and sent it down on a cloud. he did a great job making cake that looks a whole lot like his brofur. Ah shucks, we can’t tell a lie. Cooper had the same cake last year. What can we say other than it suits him purrfectly!

We also have some noms and drinks. Please help yourself and stay as long as you like.

Cooper Murphy! You jumped out of the frypan into the cushiest life ever! We are so happy that you became a Kitty Blue! We are late in visiting. Mom was bust Friday and Caturday and we are just now catching up! But we are going to sing you the song anyway!

My mancat….Snap! I dreamed we were together and frolicking in the sunshine. Wouldn’t that be lovely. I want to tell you how much you mean to me but some people may think it’s to mushy. I love you with all my heart and your ginger face is to die for.

Whisker Kisses forever,

Tyebe….your little crackle.

Happy 5th Gotcha Day to You! Happy 5th Gotcha Day Cooper Murphy! Happy 5th Gotcha Day to You! And Many Many More! My Mango Gotcha Day was Good Friday 2011! I also went to the Vet and was also found FIV and FELV Free! So I came inside! I puffed uos and deep throated Growled at Aspen and Willow and they ran! It tools Mom about 12 weeks ska 3 months to tames MEEE! And, Mom was ready to tear out her long hair!! Then suddenly I got it! I had food and water and a car tree to sits in a cuddle cup and Mom gots MEEE a toy yellow fish with some fur too! Suddenly I calmed and knew I was HOME at long last! No longer shivering puffed ups against the cold April Rains that year!!
