Purrfect Post Cats of the Month - Tom & Jerry

It's time again for a special HSEC blog post spotlighting our feline friends!  This month we have double the fun with two brothers, Tom and Jerry!

Who doesn't love a fat orange cat?!  We have TWO!  Tom and Jerry were adopted as kittens by an elderly couple and unfortunately their human mom passed away in the Spring.  Their human dad then went to stay in an assisted living facility which is how they came to us at HSEC.

Tom and Jerry are both gentle giants and when they first arrived at our facility it was a bit of a shock for them.  They were both very afraid of the staff and would escape from their cages every time they had the chance!  Fortunately over the past few months both cats have really come out of their shells.

Jerry is a sweet boy who can still be a bit shy at first but he really does love attention once you get him out to play!  When volunteers take him into the HSEC cat play area he struts his stuff and and head butts them for attention!  Jerry also loves to roll over on his side and, a sure sign he wants you to pet him!  Jerry is a classic orange tabby, the smaller of these two brothers.

Tom is one big gorgeous ball of fur!  His coat is a rich tabby mixed with reds and oranges, what a looker!  Tom absolutely loves chin rubs and being petter, although, like his brother, he can still be a bit shy when you approach him at first.  Once he realizes you are there to play and pet him he'll start to purr right away!

These awesome cats have been living at HSEC for several months now and we'd really like them to go to a new forever home where they can get the endless love and attention they deserve!  Tom and Jerry have been together forever so we would prefer that they went to the same home if possible.

All cats with the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, on flea prevention, and tested for FIV/FeLV.  Adoptions come with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet and one month of free pet health insurance!

If you're interested in meeting Tom and Jerry please visit our facility, give us a call (252) 413-7247, or e-mail us at!
