12/7/2017 - 10/8/2019On October 8, 2019, we lost the love of our life Murmur to high-grade lymphoma. She was a fighter, enduring multiple hospitalizations, hard medications and constant monitoring. Despite this terrible time she never stopped being open to the love and affection her mama and papa overwhelmed her with in every spare moment that did not require treatment.

Small but mighty, Murmur had a personality ten times the depth of her human parents combined. She always made her opinion on any given subject known, especially when it came to food choice and attention. Our routine was on her schedule - every morning Murmur got what she needed as a first priority, sometimes leaving us scrambling to get ready in time for work! Not only did our routine revolve around her needs, but any visitor was subject to the same standard. To Murmur, humans were welcome so long as they were prepared to provide treats, a peacock feather and a brush, but no other animals were allowed - no exceptions. In return, she held conversations with us spawning the creation of our own family language and traditions. She knew exactly what she deserved and we were so blessed to have been chosen to give it to her.

More than anything else, she was the greatest light of our lives to date. Her undying, unconditional love and affection taught us how to love, properly, and how to sacrifice our own well-being for the sake of hers even if the choice was exruciating. We welcome the indescribable pain that has come from grieving her loss because it is the natural consequence of the nearly two years of exultation we received for having her in our lives.
