Thompson


Isn't Thompson a handsome mancat?  Thompson is the only cat at Cat's Eye who is formerly feral.  He is also a perfect example of how tough life can be for a cat on his own.  He was caught in a leg-hold trap and lost his left front leg.  He gets around fine now, though he is better at running than walking.  He sometimes joins Diego-san and Theo in a game of Thundering Herd of Elephants.  He loves to wrestle with Theo and is an excellent bunny-kicker.  He comes running when he hears the popcorn popper going, because he has discovered that he likes popcorn, though he is rather picky about which kernels he will eat. -d ma will put down a handful for him, but he only eats three or four kernels.  He loves fresh water out of the tap and will jump up on the sink when he hears the water running.  When -d ma wears shorts in the summer, Thompson likes to lick his legs.  Thompson's special time with -d ma is when -d ma is watching TV.  Thompson gets up on his chest and settles down for a nice session of petting and TV watching. Thompson is very attached to Diego-san and the two of them will often just lie next to each other, hanging out. Thompson will usually start out the night lying at the foot of the bed, but usually winds up somewhere else sometime during the night.

                                      Thompson loves to wrestle with Theo.
                                      Their matches are really something to see-o.
                                                 Thompson bunny-kicks;
                                                  Theo gets in some licks,
                                      Then it's a merry chase for Thompson and Theo.

He's very handsome! One of our cats lost her leg in a trap too. That was very sad. But, she got around just fine without it. But, it made me very sad that she had to go through that.

Thank you for your kind words about Upsie. :)

What a recovery from a hard beginning. Thompson is fortunate he has a good home now and other cats to play with.
