Tommy is the sweetest cat I have ever had the pleasure to spend time with. He is the king of the couch and loves to be brushed and pet. If you're on the sofa, it's pretty much a guarantee he'll be right beside you purring away nudging for belly rubs (yes he LOVES belly rubs!). He is a vocal boy and loves to meow and chatter with you. Tommy would make the perfect addition to a mature household as he is sometimes a little skittish around loud noises. Tommy has come along way and will continue to improve in the right environment. He tolerates dogs, but would do much better in a pet free home.
He uses his litter box very well, but is a big boy and sometimes partially misses the box. Picking a large litter box and making sure it is always clean has essentially eliminated that problem.
Tommy came to TCR as an owner surrender but visits to the vet have given us some more insight into Tommy's earlier life. His clipped left ear and puffy cheeks indicate that Tommy likely came from a colony and was neutered later in life. He is a true Tom Cat, turned cuddly mama’s boy!!
Tommy is a big boy at 21lbs and will need some more help losing the extra weight. He will require two feedings a day (but he'll always ask for more) rather than free feeding as he does not understand portion control yet. With the help of a feeding ball and the discovery of his love of flying feather toys Tommy is already on the right track!
The day I met Tommy I knew he was special. His personality is 10 times bigger than he is. He is constantly goofing around filling my home with funny chirps and so much love. I will miss Tommy greatly, but am so excited for him to find his forever home.
