Young Thomas here is a little bundle of energy and he’s just desperate to let it all out and go crazy … and I think we can all sympathise with him right now! This one year old boy has lived all of his life so far stuck indoors and is more than ready to get into the great outdoors and do some proper exploring, like climbing trees, charging across a lawn, and (dare we say it) quite likely having a go at hunting a real mouse!
Not that Thomas doesn’t enjoy a plain old catnip mouse, but he’s certainly been contemplating trying out the real thing. Because he has been confined to an indoor setting, Thomas has picked up some rather antisocial habits along the way and will need resilient new owners that are prepared to be patient and put the time and effort in to get this cheeky chap rehabilitated. Although Thomas is friendly and enjoys being around people he has learned that attacking his nearest and dearest is a good way to get some attention. He’s certainly not the most aggressive of cats but he does give a nifty swipe and toothy nibble to the unsuspecting. He’s not being nasty, just naughty. The best way to deal with this kind of behaviour is to ignore it when it happens: the more fuss and noise people make, the greater the thrill for Thomas.
With the right new family and some safe outdoor space in which to burn off some of his youthful energy, we’re sure Thomas will start to relax, settle down, and grow out of his bad behaviours. Thomas will be best suited to a home with no young children and no other pets. Thomas has been vet checked, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and had treatments for fleas and worms.
