Domestic Short Hair
14 years old
Hello! How nice of you to stop by! It was my face that caught your eye, I’m sure; probably thinking to yourself, “Wow! What a handsome fellow!” Thanks, I get that a lot. So, yeah, I’m Thumper and I’m 14. If you are still reading, then, like me, you are very wise. You already know that an older cat is a relaxed cat, a mellow cat, an appreciative cat…..You already know that I’ll be fine by myself while you run a few errands, that your house will be fine, that your brand new leather couch will be fine…. You already know that I’m as happy to lounge in the sunny window as on your lap and that I prefer petting to playing. It would also be correct to assume that, as an older and wiser feline, I have many purrrrrls of wisdom to share about patience, loyalty, tenacity and unconditional love, and that I don’t mind hanging out with other chill cats.
What you might not know however, is just how much I love eating. Cat food, cat treats, that cake you left on the kitchen counter, that milk in your cereal bowl (what do you mean you weren’t done?). I’ve been compared to a dog in this manner, which I would find offensive it if wasn’t true. But think of it this way, you’ll never have to clean crumbs off the kitchen floor again because I’ll do it for you! I could be your sous chef! Maybe I’ll stop once I fatten back up now that my shelter hunger strike is over, but I’m not making any promises.
Since you’ve read this far, I guess I should also let you know that I’ve got a bit of an arthritic hip. It doesn’t stop me from doing everything I want to do, thanks to my arthritis medicine, but I do need to be a little more careful. For example, I don’t really need your help to get back down off the kitchen counter (really, just hide that cake!), but I would be grateful for a helping hand sometimes. My fast-moving days are behind me so I’d like to avoid a house with fast-moving hazards, like unfriendly dogs. On the plus side, (for you, anyway) is that although I am always on the lookout for a chance to explore the great outdoors, you’ll likely be able to catch me purrrrrty darn quick.
Anyhoo, I guess that’s enough about me. Why not tell me a little something about you? Go to the PawsCo website and fill out an adoption application. I already know, even before I read it, that you and I would be great together. We should set up a Meet & Greet! A quick email to my PawsCo friends will get the ball rolling!
