Some might say my story is sad, but I don’t think so. I think it’s full of promise, hope, and the kindness of strangers. For all of my life I've just been a friendly neighborhood Tom, with no home of my own. I was super happy to get occasional pets from the strangers in my neighborhood who sometimes put food out for me. Honestly, I always wanted the pets more than the food! Sometimes someone even let me inside, which was great because all I really wanted was a home.
One day I got into a lot of trouble. I don’t remember if I was hit by a car or had some other accident. All I do remember was many days of pain and starving and I was dying. Eventually I was lucky enough to hide in the back yard of some CC4C volunteers and once they found me, they rushed me to the vet for care! My jaw was broken so I couldn't eat and I had major injuries to my backside. The vets cleaned me up and wired my jaw so it could heal. The volunteers let me live indoors! I have had a warm, safe inside home for the months it took to heal and become whole. They fed me and cared for my wounds and gave me medicine, and gave me the things I need the most: love and attention. I got to play with string for the first time, and I got an amazing mouse toy! And every single day I got to do my favorite thing... sitting in laps. I love lap time more than anything: even when I'm really hungry and there's food I'd rather sit in a lap.
Now I am healed and happy. I’ve got a second chance and I hope to find my forever home. Please come and spend some time with me, I’m super looking forward to sitting on your lap, and getting lots of pets, and giving you all of my love.
Please note: I screened positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus or FIV+. I have no symptoms and cats like me can live full, happy lives. FIV is difficult to transmit and FIV+ cats can usually live with other cats without spreading it. FIV has no effect on humans or any other animals other than cats.
