Happy Days!!

Happy days are here again!!! I found Murphy last night!!! The apartment complex has several big like semi- truck containers out in the back (they are redoing the apartments) and he was hiding under one of them… dc had put some food out yesterday morning and last night after work I went back to where the food bowl was at (for the 2nd time), got down on my knees to look under the container, and he stuck his head out… I thought I was going to have to drag him out but after he stuck his head out he just started creeping out really slow… normally he’s not big on being carried around but I picked him up and he just latched onto me… I cried the whole way home I was so happy!!! Mazzy on the other hand has been hissing at Murphy and I both since I brought him home… she is not a happy kitteh… poor “little” Murphy is worn out and last night he was sleeping in his bed and she walked over to him, started hissing at him and slapping his ears… he was so tired he didn’t even move but she is being mean!!! Back to her “old” self I suppose… she’s acting the way she did when we first brought him home… I know in time she’ll be ok with him being back but until then she’s just going to have to get over it… (I know, I’m such a mean momma)… Murph is covered in dust so today at lunch I’m going to buy him (and her) a new collar and make new name tags with the correct phone number on them… I’ve also got to get some kitteh shampoo or some shampoo wipes or something, I think they have those- shampoo wipes… he’s like a big dust ball!!!! You just pet him and your hand is covered in dust… I tried brushing him last night and then dc and I tried to clean him with a wet paper towel but it’s going to take more than that… I don’t care though!!! I’m just so happy he’s home!!!! I just had to share the good news!! Thank you ALL for all your positive thoughts!!!

I knew you would find him! I am so happy you did!

I wonder how long he was under there! Poor Murphy must have been so scared.

I have never given a cat a bath (personally), but I know people do it. Good luck if you go that route ;)

YAYAYAYYAYAYA! I am SOOO over joyed that you found Murphy! I am thrilled about the happy ending! And relieved! What an agonizing experience this had to be for you. I'm glad he is home.

They have dry kitteh shampoo out there - I think all you have to do is sprinkle it on and brush it out. No water needed.

Mazzy will get used to Murph again. Maybe he has all these interesting smells on him that she can't resist hissing at

good news!! I went to petco yesterday and got some shampoo wipes and then some "foam shampoo" but no water was needed for either!!! I was deathly afraid that if I tried to actually give him a bath he might really leave only to never be found again!! He is all clean and smells good!!!
