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.
