Photo(s) of Tom (1)


Tom emerged from a garden, as I rushed down my road, on the way to the chemist before it closed for lunch, on 29th July 2010. He followed me, meowing all the way, to the end of the road. I asked two people on the way if they knew whose cat he was, they didn't. He was Tabby, skinny, looked old & wasn't wearing a collar. I didn't want him near the busy road, so I turned back thinking he'd just go into his own garden on the way back up the road. He followed me, meowing, to my front gate, not pausing at all except for fusses from me and to rub round my legs. Now too late for the chemist, I decided to go indoors, the cat would go then. I opened the street door showing our dog at the top of the stairs, which I climbed, definately not expecting the cat to follow me, which he did! Past the dog and into the kitchen where I fed him some of our cat's food. He readily scoffed it, not put off at being sniffed by Blaze! He went to sleep on one of the dogs' beds and stayed! He was my third soul mate, followed me everywhere he could, slept curled up into my stomach every night. His identity chip showed he'd been adopted from Foal Farm. The owner, from Charlton, never replied to their calls and I readily became Tom's foster 'mum' as the sanctuary was full. He was 14 yrs old, had a Thyroid illness and how he came to have travelled so far I'll never know! Tom woke me one morning, crying, he looked dreadful. At the vet, I was told he was near his end and as he was having difficulty breathing, it would be kinder to have him PTS. A lady from the Cats Protection League told me the stray cats search out someone to help them. I'll be forever gratefull that dear, sweet, precious Tom chose me and I'll always miss him.
