Tom has been coming by for about 6 years now. He might have even showed up before Girl did. Every bit the tom cat he does not stay in very long when he does stop by. I don't know if he has another home or not, I like to think he has several spots to get a hand out.
Lately I have been trying to entice him to hang around more by giving him a catnip mouse to play with. I have also been using what is left of this stringed toy. At first he was afraid of it when I would swing it near him, causing him to run from it. As you can see now he will play with it. Being a rare treat when Tom will grace us with his presence I do my best to make him feel welcome.
All the girls think he is hot, they just will not leave him alone. I think he is a bit shy, or maybe more of a Casanova as he doesn't really like all the attention. He is mostly a loner and will not play with the ladies, and will hiss at the other toms.
I just had to get these pictures and share. They are not the best, try playing with a cat while taking a picture with the other hand. It is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I just wish I could get more of the others in action. Oh well enjoy Thomas Catticus at play.
