Before Onyx came to live with Murphey and her husband a year ago, her life had not been easy. “Onyx survived being separated from her mother too early and [living in] filthy conditions in the house where she was found with a lot of other cats,” Murphey told The Dodo. “Her ears were black with dirt and we had to have them cleaned.”
When Murphey and her husband first saw Onyx, they were immediately smitten by how well the little kitten got along with their dog Captain, chattering at him through the bars of her cage. And when she fell asleep in Murphey’s lap, curled into a little ball, they knew she was coming home with them.
