Proud owner of the worldâs 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@example.com.
PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. PAWS pulls at-risk animals from the City of Philadelphia's animal control shelter and adopts them out, either from our adoption center (located at 2nd and Arch Streets), from one of our adoption locations at area PETCO and PetSmart stores, or from our network of foster homes.
PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
When you adopt a pet from PAWS you truly save a life!
PAWS' Adoption Center in Old City is open Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11a.m.-7p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please reference this animal's ID NUMBER when inquiring about this pet.
All animals adopted from PAWS are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs older than 1 year, $200 for puppies under 1 year, $50 for cats over 6 months of age, and $75 for cats under 6 months of age.
