Greetings to Team Thomas!
When you stop to consider the sheer number of details our staff has to consider with the FIV+ cats, regarding who can be in the same room at the same time; who needs to be separated; who needs to eat which diet; and who needs to be watched more carefully than usual, you begin to wonder if the old saying about humans using so little of their available brain power is accurate.
We’ve been so lucky with Thomas that way! Sure, he gets annoyed when Jasper rubs on him too much, and yes, we have to watch those skin lesions, but usually Thomas’ needs are limited to attention from humans and a sunny place to call his own.
Thomas was in the solarium snoozing a couple of weeks ago when two of his sponsors, B. and K., dropped by for a visit. Now, we know this couple loves cats; they’ve got six of their own and sponsor several of ours. But it seems that the feeling is mutual. No sooner had B. sat down in the solarium than Thomas climbed into his lap. Once there, His Orangeness curled into a tight ball and was fast asleep within a minute or two. K. made a valiant attempt to persuade B. that this was Fate and that they needed to take Thomas home, but alas, B. wasn’t buying it.
Medically speaking, Thomas has had a beautifully quiet month, with no recurrence of those troublesome skin lesions. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll be gone for quite a spell now, if not permanently!
As usual, thank you for helping to keep Thomas in such fine fettle.
PS: Thomas would love to see you if you should have a chance to stop by for Tabby’s Place’s annual Open House & Low-Cost Microchipping Clinic on October 9th. He is eager to meet the amazing sponsors who are such a big and beautiful part of his life. The Open House runs from 11 am – 4 pm.
