Description
Tom is a lovely, special boy looking for an amazing home who can meet his needs. In return he will share his unlimited love and cuddles. As a little kitten in SPCA care it quickly became evident Tom had developmental issues and was physically stunted compared to his siblings. Besides having dwarfish characteristics, his mobility was also very poor and normal things were very challenging for him. Tom was eventually diagnosed with feline hypothyroidism which is a rare but manageable condition. Things improved a lot for Tom once he started treatment but he will always be a bit slower, wobbly, and find certain things challenging. Tom will require life-long daily medication for his condition and an adopter will need to be committed to this as well as prepared for the cost of more frequent vet exams and blood work. Potential adopters will need to show that they have researched the condition and have talked to their vet before adopting.
Tom is worth it though and is such an amazing little guy to spend time with. He has no idea he is slower than other kittens and is pretty fearless. He may not be able to run around as fast and climb like others but that doesn't stop him from doing his favourite things like hunting shadows, and playing with his favourite toy, a lid that spins away. He is chatty, playful, and an excellent cuddler. Cuddle time with Tom is awesome! Tom loves attention, kisses, and being brushed which makes him purr like crazy. He loves being around people and furry friends and will follow you around to be with you. Tom lives with other cats and a dog in his foster home and would likely be happy in a multi-pet household. To meet Tom please contact the Kamloops SPCA at 250-376-7722 or kamloops@spca.bc.ca to schedule a meeting.
Tom has been waiting over 200 days to have his dream come true, a fur-ever family. Are you that special someone? Primary Color: Grey Weight: 2.4kg Age: 0yrs 7mths 2wks Animal has been Neutered
