Facts about Thomas

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
 Hello friends: My name is Thomas and I am just one year old and love life. I am very friendly and cuddly with my people and love to play. I was found in a yard all alone and rescued by a nice man who lived there. He brought me to a local vet thinking they could take me. When the office staff said they couldn't since they are a veterinarian and not a shelter, a rescue lady sitting in the lobby saw me and said, "I'll take him in." She admitted later she has a real weakness for felines that look like me and then when she found out how friendly I am she wasn't sorry. She has two cats already but wants to find the best home for me.
I'm a very handsome honey-colored "orange" boy with lovely tabby marks, stripes and swirls in my fur and I have deep orange eyes. You may have heard that orange boy tabbies (most of us with this coloring are boys) are known to make the most loyal, mellow, and enjoyable companions. I live up to this legend. 
I am a very adoptable one year old male, neutered, with shots all up to date. I’m just waiting to play and cuddle with you.
Must be indoors only.

About Pets Bring Joy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate about the fact that pets bring joy to the people who love them, and vice versa! Our full mission statement is presented on our website,, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," emphasizing adult cats who often get passed over in favor of kittens. We support them through the kindness of volunteer foster homes, and work to find qualified, loving homes for them all.

We also encourage collaboration within the rescue community, working with smaller "grass roots" rescue organizations to help them with community outreach and fund-raising.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our sponsored cats are cared for by foster volunteers in their homes throughout Northern Virginia. We arrange for approved adopters to meet our kitties in their foster homes, where the kitties are in their most relaxed and natural environment.

We are also delighted to have been chosen as the resident rescue organization for PetSmart's East Fairfax store, located at 9528 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031 (at the corner of Pickett Road and Main Street aka "Little River Turnpike"). You may *view* our kitties any time that the store is open (store phone: (571) 328-7770), but it's best if you contact us via email first so that we can arrange to have a PBJ volunteer meet you to open the cat room so that you can *interact* with them.

We regularly hold adoption events at the store on Saturdays ... please check our website,, for our latest adoption schedule.

We also have animals housed at the PetMAC in DC. Please visit their website:; visit Lori at the PetMAC DC store 7 days a week or email Lori at for more information.

Our Adoption Process...

We require completion of an initial on-line application; our evaluation process involves two phone interviews, a vet reference check, and a home visit.
