Formerly frightened former stray Thomas meets the extraordinary Murkin for the first time, in this heartwarming video.
Murkin helps his mom foster cats and kittens for their local shelter. Thomas was found on the streets in rough shape, but he’s doing well with excellent care, in preparation to being made available for adoption.
Murkin’s Mom says, “About Thomas O’Malley Flufferpants:
Mr. Flufferpants is a stray kitty we rescued. When we found him, he was living as a feral kitty in my apartment complex. He was covered in fleas, missing large patches of fur, and had an eye infection. I had him neutered, scanned for a microchip, and vaccinated. I feed him a hypoallergenic prescription diet now, and his fur is growing back in quite nicely. We also discovered during our physical exam that he has a heart murmur and also needs some dental work. So for right now he is staying with me until I can save up enough $ to get his teeth extracted, and then he will be adopted out into a loving home.
He was scared of dogs at first, so I let him slowly get used to Murkin from a distance. Then I started giving him treats and pets with Murkin sitting about 20 feet away. Finally, after about a month of this, I let them meet for the first time. And it went really well!!”
