Facts about Tom

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Tom would be happy for the rest of his life doing nothing but loving you. More than anything, he loves to sit on your lap.

For reasons we cannot fathom, this sweet cat was living outdoors as a stray. Somehow he got smeared with tar, which started a terrible allergic reaction so that his eyes and face were painfully swollen. On top of that, he had a severe abscess in his nose that swelled so large he stopped eating.

Thankfully, a kind woman moved into Tom's neighborhood, begged us for help, and even volunteered to foster him. Without her, we would not have been able to help Tom.

Estimated to be three years old, Tom is now in excellent health. He also gets along well with dogs and with other cats.

More than anything in the world, though, Tom just wants somebody to love. He fits perfectly into any lap, and he'll never stop loving you if you give him a chance.

Please also consider a tax-deductible donation to help Tom and other cats like him. 100% of proceeds go to medical care. We can only help them because of you.

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
