Pet Of The Week – Tom

We’d like to introduce you to Tom! Tom is a handsome, older kitty who came to Green Hills Animal Shelter in August 2020 after being rescued from a life on the streets. Life on the streets isn’t easy for any kitty, but for Tom, it was extra hard because Tom has FIV, which is an immune system disorder that makes him more susceptible to illnesses than other non-FIV kitties.

After arriving at the shelter, Tom quickly and gratefully embraced life as an indoor kitty and he immediately won the hearts of the shelter staff and volunteers with his charming ways.

When you meet Tom, the first thing you’ll notice is his expressive face and his gorgeous cream-point coloring, but there’s more to Tom than just good looks; Tom’s personality is that of a true gentleman. Tom is a very sweet boy who loves everyone he meets. He enjoys attention and is always ready to be petted.  And, despite being a bit older, Tom still loves to play.

Tom gets along well with children, dogs, and other cats. As we mentioned previously, Tom is FIV positive, which means that he will need to be adopted to an indoor-only home, but since FIV is spread primarily through deep bite wounds, Tom can still live happily and safely with other kitties as long as they all get along well. At the shelter, Tom lives in KittyWood with several other special needs kitties, and, the gentleman that he is, he gets along great with all of them.

If Tom could describe his perfect Forever Home, he would request an indoor-only home where he could loll in sunbeams and watch the birdies through the windows.  He would be very happy to share his home with children, dogs, or other cats, but he would also be equally happy to reside in a single-cat household where he could be a lap kitty and the center of his family’s attention.

Tom will go to his Forever Home neutered, de-wormed, FIV/FeLV tested (FIV+), and up to date on all his vaccinations, including rabies.  He is an old soul who is sure to win your heart; could you make his wish of a Forever Home come true?

For more information on Tom, or any of the pets waiting for their homes at Green Hills Animal Shelter, please phone the shelter at 660-359-2700 or stop by during open business hours.  We’d love to meet you and introduce you to our furry friends!
