RIP Murphy

Ok so most people wouldn’t really know I had a cat as I don’t tend to talk about him, mainly because my Dad has been looking after him for the last 3 or 4 years.

He called me last night to say that Murph wasn’t doing to well and had been sick and poo’ing everywhere. He was getting upset on the phone, and  I had to be harsh and say that he was probably on the way out – not those exact words but along those lines as my Dad can be a bit stupid sometimes. You have to know him to understand what I mean… but that’s a whole different story.

anyway back to kitty.

Mum called me this afternoon just as I got back from lunch to say that Dad had been on the phone to her and that kitty had just slept away. He managed to get him to the vets yesterday afternoon and they said he was just old and that there was nothing wrong with him, just to keep him comfortable until it happens basically.

I got Murphy from an animal rescue centre when he was 2 years old, he was the kind of cat who hadnt had much handling but I just used to pick him up for 5 to 10 min everyday to get him used to it. He would sit for so long until he he had enough.

He was a good cat – never had to take him to vets for anything and he was generally a happy kitty.

So to die at the grand old age of 13 with no major problems throughout his life I think is pretty good =)

No doubt my dad will go get drunk and drown his sorrows about it as that is what he did when the dog died and unltimately how he ended up looking after Murphy.
