About Thomas

I am in a foster home but I am still AVAILABLE for adoption!

Hi, I'm Thomas! I am a transfer from Lethbridge. I am a sweet boy, and while it can take me a minute to warm up to new humans, I am actually quite a social butterfly once I've observed the situation for a minute! I am a big beautiful guy, and enjoy affection from humans and from companions of the feline assortment to. I even think I would adapt to living with a dog as long as they are gentle with me. I am great with kids as long as they approach me quietly, and will show you my belly for some rubs once I feel safe. I am still young, so I can adapt to living in all kinds of environments! I really enjoy sitting in my "catio" watching the birds, so a home with a perch for me to observe the world sounds swell. I'd really like a couch to lounge on and some people to love, so come by to meet me - I promise you'll be smitten!

I tested positive for FELV (Feline Leukemia Virus) which is a disease that impairs a cat's immune system and is linked to cancer. Our knowledgeable staff can tell you more about what it means to adopt an FELV positive cat, but it would be safest if I am the only other cat in the home or with another cat that has already tested positive (this disease does not affect people or dogs). I am healthy at this time, and a very sweet boy!

While at the shelter, I became friends with another FELV positive cat named Benny. Now we are in a foster home together, and have developed a very sweet friendship! While we would be okay to go our separate ways, it sure would be nice to find a home with my buddy Benny because I enjoy the company of other cats, but shouldn't be around cats that aren't already infected with my virus. We're a pretty cute pair!

Here's what my current foster has to say about me: "Thomas AKA Big Tommy.... is still very much a kitten and has a lot of kitten things to do. He's a busy bee and still quite curious of everything. He is a very confident kitty! Thankfully he has not been destructive but we've set him up for success by not leaving anything (especially food) out. He LOVES playing fetch with the crinkly toy that we got him. I throw it up the stairs and he retrieves it, brings it to me and puts it on the ground for me to throw again. I get tired out before he does! Thomas also loves belly rubs and has a lot of dog-like qualities that are so charming. He likes a strong pet and is his preference. He'll let me pet him for a long time if it's a firm rub. He's a vocal guy and loves our morning conversations. Thomas does cuddle on his own terms but when he does he melts into you. Thomas and Benny: They cuddle and play together and groom each other. Benny would love more cuddles and tries to scootch in with Thomas but Thomas has other things to do. Thomas keeps Benny more active which has been good for his weight loss journey. I think they would suit a large family well as they are so diverse. Someone that has kids to play with Thomas and an older, calm and gentle person for Benny to cuddle. Thomas would do great with dogs too but needs time to recognize they're not a threat."

Here's what my previous foster has to say about me: Thomas does not seem to have any anxiety about new surrounds and is very active and loves space to run around in. Thomas is still very much a kitten at heart with all the zoomies in him. He loves running round, jumping up and getting into and on top of things. He loves company and I wish I could give him more to do! He would be perfect for someone with young kids. His cheeky demeanor and charismatic personality is a favourite of everyone who's visited. While he does love the occasional cuddle, he'd much prefer a belly rub or a companion to play with the toys together with. His favourite spot is on top of the cat scratcher where he can watch the house and out the window. Thomas has really learnt boundaries and no longer jumps on to the counter when preparing his breakfast or dinner. He also knows the word "no" and stays back when I'm eating food compared to the early days where he would force himself onto my plate to try and get a piece. Such progress!
