Tommy - Tommy the tank
13 years | Male | Senior foster | Nervous
Tommy has been the much loved cat of an elderly gentlemen, they had been best buds since Tommy was a kitten. Tommy had been living in a rest home with the gentleman for the last 3 years but sadly his health declined and was no longer able to keep Tommy with him.
Tommy has really come out of his shell at the shelter, much to the disgust of some of the other cats. He has become the master of sneak attacks, popping out from underneath hiding spots to surprise unsuspecting cats. Despite his chunky frame he is actually quite stealthy! Tommy loves being out on our deck and is quite adventurous climbing the cat towers. Tommy isn't really a fan of pats, but he does enjoy watching everything that's going on.
Since being in our care we have discovered that Tommy has Feline Asthma. He is on steroids to manage the condition and his wheezing is getting better, but as he is also very obese this isn't ideal. Tommy needs to lose weight for the sake of his health so his new person will need to be committed to helping him achieve this.
Due to Tommy's age and health needs he is part of our Care for Life foster programme.
Tommy will be happiest in a quiet, adult only home as the only pet.
