THOMAS is a four-year, two-month-old grey and white tiger male cat. Thomas was adopted from us as a young kitten, and he was somewhat timid and withdrawn. His new owners thought they were doing Thomas a kindness by allowing him to retain these characteristics, but he really needed socialization. It’s apparent that Thomas was well cared for, for he’s a beautiful and healthy boy. His family recently celebrated the birth of their new baby, but the baby’s unaccustomed presence drove Thomas into hiding. Hiding is no life for a feline, or a family trying to care for him and a baby, so Thomas came back to us. You can see in Thomas’ eyes how much he wants to bond, but how uncertain he is in how to do so. He loves to be talked to, and his eyes close as he relaxes to the sound of your voice. Thomas will flourish with a patient and kind individual, who will allow him time to be by himself, but who will also insist that he interact and participate in the household. Thomas has potential…imagine being the one who could bring that out!
