Tom (in foster care but available for adoption)

Tom (in foster care but available for adoption)Tom (in foster care but available for adoption) - Orange, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male

Tom is 7 years old and he is a big boy. His elderly owner was hospitalized and will be unable to care for him if/when she returns home, so the family surrendered him. Poor Tom has never been away from his home, so he is quite bewildered. He can be petted once he trusts you and will sit on the couch beside you. He is NOT a lap though, nor does he like being picked up. Tom is definitely a "foodie" though and may, occasionally, growl in order to get a sample of what YOU are eating. Tom needs to be brushed or the fur on his back matts. The best time to brush him is when he is eating. Please consider giving this boy another home. He does NOT like other cats but he is alright with a quiet dog. Tom would be good with a senior or in a quiet home with no children.
