Thomas has quite a story!
I brought Thomas the cat into Dr. Visser the end of February 2013. Thomas has quite a story. He is a yellow shorthair, probably about 6 years old. He wandered the Bashas' parking lot at Scottsdale Road and Grayhawk for over five years. He made a lot of friends, mainly begging food from Bashas' shoppers. He slept in the bushes and managed to hide from coyotes, bobcats, owls and hawks. He had several kind-hearted women who fed him every night, rain and shine. Two of the women had been feeding him for over five years. But, the property managers were supposedly very unhappy that people were feeding stray cats on the property, and two of the businesses posted nasty tempered signs telling people not to feed the cats. I figured it was time to catch Thomas and give him a forever home. I took a cage out for a week and got him used to coming and going into it. Then, one night he went in after tuna fish, and I closed the door. He wasn't happy, but didn't bite or scratch. I took him to my vet and found out he had some broken teeth. My vet recommended Dr. Visser, so I brought Thomas to have his teeth fixed. I don't know how someone can do a root canal on a tooth as small as a cat's, but now Thomas has three of his four canines, thanks to Dr. Visser. He also had two infected teeth extracted and got a good cleaning. Thomas is a beautiful cat with a great personality. And now he will have a beautiful smile! He is one lucky cat!
