Thumper was at the shelter for almost two months and the cat volunteers loved him for his big fangy front teeth and extra-sweet disposition. Volunteer Regina thought he was adorable and decided to take him home He's been with her for a while now. She says: "Thumper is doing great. He is very affectionate and loves to sit on laps while we watch TV or sit at the computer. He is exploring the house more and is very curious. He is feeling much better since his loose tooth was taken care of and shows his appreciation by snuggling with us (and our dogs) every night.
