Thomas is the ultimate lap kitty. There's nothing he likes more than to be next to you and keep you company while you read or watch TV. He's also great company while you work on the computer and will lie next to you on your desk and ask gently for pets and loving. Thomas is one of those big boys who are so loving and gentle, and all he wants to do is thank you for being his rescuer. He gets along wonderfully with other cats and kittens, and he ignores the gentle dogs he lives with. Thomas was rescued only hours from death as he had tested positive for FIV. This virus in cats means they have a compromised immune system, however it does not mean they can't enjoy a long, healthy and happy life like every other cat. FIV+ kitties can live well into their late teens and it is not contagious to other cats in the home. It is spread by deep puncture wounds like the kind un-neutered males can give each other when they fight for territory, and Thomas is a lover not a fighter. It would be very hard to find a sweeter and more loving boy. Please come meet Thomas and you'll fall in love with him.
