“He still seems to be scared of going out in the garden. He will go out sometimes, but then he will stand there shivering for a bit and then wants to come straight back inside,” explained Graham.
One of Thomas’s favourite pastimes is to watch the rescue chickens that Lauren and Graham keep in their back garden from the window, or when he’s feeling brave enough, from the lawn itself.
Lauren said: “Having Thomas is made extra rewarding because of what he had been through before he was taken to Blue Cross. It’s scary to think how close he was to not making it.
“He has changed our lives in many ways. He is full of energy, loves to play and absolutely loves being nice and warm in bed. He is also incredibly loving.
“He is still incredibly naughty and cheeky - we have to be careful with any food that’s left out as he will shamelessly steal it. But he’s absolutely adorable and we love him lots.”
“He is so far being a good boy with the Christmas decorations and he loves it when the fire is on.”
Amanda said: “After everything he had gone through, it’s so lovely to hear that little Thomas is thriving in his new home and is getting all the love he deserves. Everyone at Victoria was very fond of him, and we are so relieved that all of our care to save him paid off and that he is getting to enjoy his first Christmas in a home.”
“We’re looking forward to our first Christmas with Thomas. He’ll be spoilt rotten with presents and is likely to get a special dinner of his own. We couldn’t be without him now,” Graham added.
