Tom – Adopted 10/30

Hi guys, I’m Tom, the chilliest cat you haven’t met. Yeah, why haven’t you stopped by to meet me yet? Well, let me tell you a little bit about me.

I spent the first half of my life in North Carolina. It was a good life, good climate, southern charm, but one day, I found myself at a shelter down there looking for a new home. The kind people down there knew I’d love Maine so they sent me to AWS. I gotta say, Maine is great – great people, great fun, great seasons. I like watching the leaves change, I love watching the sun shine and I gotta say – I love the snow. Well, let me rephrase that – I love watching the snow from inside! But enough about my interest in the weather. You want to know about ME.

I’m a handsome, friendly, sweet housecat. I love to be near my people, snuggling on a lap or napping on the couch. Really, I’m the total package, don’t you think? I’ll make a loving addition to your home and bring you plenty of joy and affection.

Well, before I say good bye, I should tell you one thing. It’s about my scratching. I love scratching. I’ve got these big ol’ paws, you see, so I do tend to scratch quite a bit. I really like to use the cardboard scratching posts so if you keep plenty of those around, I’ll probably not scratch your furniture, probably.

So please come by and meet me. I’m just waiting to become a part of your home!

Maddie Thayer is one cool cat! For her 10th birthday, she asked for gifts for our animals in lieu of gifts for herself. The gifts and supplies that she has kindly and generously brought to us this weekend will support all of the pets waiting for new homes at AWS. As she has a soft spot in her heart for senior cats, the adoptions fees for several senior cats, including Tom, have been waived in her honor!



Quite the model this old man is.


He’s thinking about maybe, possibly, potentially getting down to explore…if he can make up his mind…


Quite the paws, aren’t they?
