Tom (in foster care but is available for adoption)

Tom (in foster care but is available for adoption)Tom (in foster care but is 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 died recently, so the family surrendered him. Poor Tom has never been away from his home, so he is quite bewildered. He loves to be petted and will sit on the couch beside you or at your feet, purring away. 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. Though he is overweight, Tom still loves to play and will bat a toy back and forth with you or chew on toys, and he can definitely jump when he wants to.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.
