Cat of the Week: Thomas

Thomas (A14147210) is one cool cat! Even with the stress of living in a shelter, this big boy remains cool, calm and collected.

Thomas has been hanging out at the shelter since his family moved and left him here. Being in a cage is quite boring for this social, outgoing guy. Thomas is quite interested in anything you happen to be doing, including taking photos, writing, or reading a cage card, and tries to help you out with these activities. When he’s not hard at work, Thomas enjoys being pet and scratched behind the ears. This chubby tabby-and-white boy is like a teddy bear that you just want to hug! Thomas is always sad to see you go, and will try to summon you back with a meow that sounds like it’s coming from a small kitten! If you’d like some ‘help’ with your household chores, Thomas is just the cat for the job!
