Having come to know front courtyard resident Murray for expressions like this...

... I was surprised to learn from Gaye that he used to be quite the scrapper in his youth. She's not sure just how old he is know, but remembers that he was already a resident of the sanctuary when she first started coming there.

These days, when he's not making faces, Murray often content to act like a nice older gentleman.

This is not to say he isn't interested in a little interaction. When he wants some attention, he's quite happy to holler for it. 

And yes, sometimes Murray still gets into fights. Gaye was recently surprised to see him so involved in fighting Dirky that she needed to throw water at them to snap the two cats out of it.

Aging? Perhaps. Still spunky? Absolutely.
