Pet Connection: Meet Murr

He's worth all the gold and frankincense in the world.

Okay, so they don’t spell it the same as the Biblical gifts the three wise men gave to baby Jesus — frankincense, gold and myrrh. But big kitty Murr is a treasure in his own right.

Murr was rescued as a stray from the pound by Homeward Animal Rescue. And since Homeward’s Heather Klefstad has a lot of upper-body strength, she hauled the 14 pound, 9-oz. orange Murr into the KVRR Morning Show studios to visit live with Emily Welker.

Murr is a purrfect companion for these cold wintry holiday nights. He was purring within minutes on the desk with Emily and Heather, and loves to knead gently and cuddle up — he practically goes limp when you pick him up. He’s good with other cats and with cat-friendly dogs as well. Plus, he’s a real youngster in cat years — given good diets and appropriate health care, cats can live into their 20s.

They say the best things come in small packages, but Murr is a Christmas gift that’s bursting with big love. Check out his profile at this link:
