Tom had been at AWS for a looong time. Every time I did my volunteer stint, I would check on him and became entranced with his sweet face. The staff were good about letting him out to roam the room because he wasn’t going anywhere quickly due to arthritis (and age). Finally one day driving home I thought, I MUST give him a home so as soon as I got home I called and went the next day to get him. He is the sweetest cat, most loving, I have ever had and I’ve had many! Cauliflower ear and bowed front legs – all just make him sweeter. And he’s friends with my other kitty, Soxie, very loving. So if you find a cat with “problems”, take it. You will be rewarded!
