Hi there, my name is Murphy. I came to West Suburban from someone who found me at a truck stop. When I first got here you could tell I was livin life on the edge. I looked a little rough and skinny, but Im doing great now! I am very much your typical cat. I want attention when I want it, and will go even so far as to be your little shadow following you around the whole house, but other times I enjoy my space, lounging around in my favorite cat bed. I do okay with most of the cats in the cattery, but in my forever home I would do best with a female cat, or a submissive male cat, or no other pets at all! As far as staff knows I have never been around dogs so they dont know if I would do okay with one or not. If you think you have the home for me then what are you waiting for?! Apply today so we can meet.

Please note - since we always accept our animals back we only adopt to the following Illinois counties: Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Will.

If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out our online adoption application.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
