Message from Tommy-boy
My name is Tom. I’m a 4.5 year old boy! The volunteers at Metta Cats & Dogs Sanctuary call me Tommy-boy when I’m cute and “THOMAS!” when I’m cheeky. hehe.
I’m very loving and attention seeking! I will bite the grilles on my gate if volunteers walk past without patting my head (how can, right?) but once they give me attention, I will wag my tail non-stop and ask for pats and head rubs.
Recently I developed a skin condition, and the volunteers told me they will start to look for a loving foster home for me to heal ☹ this is because the shelter’s floors are washed twice a day to keep the place clean… but it means that my skin condition won’t heal fast. I’m sad to leave my fellow doggos and loving hoomans but I am a brave boy so I’ll do my best!
A couple of weeks ago, one of my sisters died. Her name is Vera… it was very sad. The hoomans cried a lot because it was so sudden. One moment she was fine and bouncing around, the next moment she had a hit and passed on. Shelter life can be so sad sometimes. I hope Vera is watching us from heaven. We miss you, Vera!
How about some good news now! My friends from the cats side have some happy news. One of them, a ginger cat called O2, finally got adopted – after getting returned by 2 families because they couldn’t cope with his flu and FIV condition. I’m so happy he finally got his forever home!! And another long-time resident, Tam Tam, also went for his home trial. Hopefully his family will adopt him after that!
Anyway, here I am, waiting for my turn! I am looking for someone patient and understanding – I have been through A LOT of traumas in my short life ☹ but my devoted hoomans can attest that once I get to know you, I’m a cute cheeky waggy-tailed boy! Come and see me sooooooon!
By the way, big news for all of us at Metta, we will be moving to a new location very soon! Sadly our current home will be taken back for redevelopment. So, if you'd like to contribute to our relocation fund, pls visit our website https://give.asia/campaign/help-metta-cats-dogs-sanctuary#/ for the link!
