Handsome ginger tom in West Yorks needs forever home - URGENT

Post by TommyT » Sun Jul 15, 2018 9:57 am

This is Tom. He's approximately 5 years old and came to live with us after having an accident with a car during some time as a stray. Enormously affectionate and loving, he'd make a brilliant solo pet for anyone with a heart. His handsome face is difficult to resist!

Tom is very well socialised and spends most of his time following us around the house looking for cuddles and/or treats. We always know where he is because he's usually at our side! He doesn't stray far from the back door, and while he tolerates other cats in the neighbourhood he can't get on with our very timid tabby (Hamish), so it would be best if he went to a new home on his own.

Because of his injuries (bashed nose), he breathes quite heavily, but otherwise he's in a fine health with a good appetite. He has a historic broken rib when healed poorly as it went untreated, but it makes no odds to him and he's a good little sprinter when he needs to be!

Tom is litter trained and responds to his name. His favourite food is ham and his favourite game is 'hunt the laser'.

Desperately sad to let this lovely boy go, and would love to place him in his forever home where he can have all of the ham and cuddles his heart desires.

We are in West Yorkshire but willing to travel reasonable distances to give Tom the home he deserves.

NB Out of the country 17-21 July, but will try keep an eye on here. Tom (and Hamish!) is being well cared for while we're away!

Ohhh noooo! NEVER show me a ginger tom!

He is gorgeous and ought to get a home pdq, but it's a good idea to post your area if you're comfortable with that, and, if you haven't seen this, the part 2 is full of good advice re vetting his new home -
