Domestic Short Hair

An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Male

Proud owner of the world’s loudest purr, this gentle giant will melt your heart with his internal combustion. Tom wants little else than to be held and loved, and will curl up in your lap and reward you with continuous purrs. Truth be told, he loves a good meal and a tasty treat just as much. Rescued from an abandoned building in North Philly, this sweetheart has transitioned easily into indoor living, showing much gratitude for a warm bed and regular meals. He is learning to play and greatly enjoys chasing his feather toy around a room. Tom is interested and curious about other cats, and has not shown any aggression towards his roommates. He would probably not like to live with a dog, as he is fearful of barking.

We almost forgot to mention, as the photos can attest, Tom is one handsome guy! With gorgeous yellow-green eyes and a soft black and white fur coat Tom is ready for his close up!

All Tom lacks is a home he can be in forever, and a person to love unconditionally. Can he be yours?

Tom is considered special needs as he is FIV positive. FIV positive cats can live long, healthy lives and can even live with other fiv negative cats! Please click the link for more information.


If you'd like to meet Tom please contact his foster parents at [email protected].
