RIP Murphy (non-GSD)


Murphy
1997-2009

Our Norwegian Forest Cat, Murphy, passed away this evening. She had been suffering various illnesses, mostly related to age, and has been declining since our move. Over the past week, she slowly lost the ability to walk and keep herself clean, could no longer make it to the litterbox, and eventually began to hide, so we made the difficult decision to put her to sleep.

Our county permits burial at home, so she has been laid to rest close to the wood line on the field behind the house, between the wildflowers.

This is the cat who'd sleep on my head at night, and she will be missed as my little furry headwarmer.

Re: RIP Murphy (non-GSD)

Oh My Gosh I am so sorry that you lost her - She was quite a beautiful creature indeed.... I am sure that you will miss her horribly as we always miss our sweeties that pass before us......
I think that it's nice that you could have her grave near to you and covered in flowers......Animals are such a special gift that they give to us each and all.....their hearts , their sweet ways. It surely makes my life worth living...........

I am so sorry for you all......

Re: RIP Murphy (non-GSD)

I'm so sorry. What a beautiful girl she was! That wise little face, and that beautiful coat. It sounds as though you gave her a wonderful life, and loved her so much. She was lucky to be with you, and you were lucky to have her. You made the decision that was best for her, and I bet she is grateful and looking down on you thinking about how she can't wait to meet you at the bridge to be your kitty-earmuffs again. I'll be praying for peace for you and your family, I know how much you all must be hurting.

R.I.P. baby kitty.

P.S. My senior kitty sleeps right on my head, too, so I really, really feel for you.

Re: RIP Murphy (non-GSD)

Chris, I am so sorry. What a gorgeous girl and I know she will be missed terribly. There's just nothing quite as wonderful as having a kitty wrapped around your head at night...

Run free and healthy, beautiful Murphy...
