If there was ever a penalty for being friendly – Thomas has paid it in full. Thomas’ full name is Sir Thomas Trueheart, and he was living life as a stray in California. He got that name because even though he was terribly mistreated – he still loves humans. As a stray, Thomas got acid poured on his head.
He lost one of his eyes. A family that had been giving him food found him and took him to the vet.
After he had tested positive for FIV+, which is basically the cat version of AIDS or feline immunodeficiency virus, the vet said the best thing would be to have Thomas put down.
When the family contacted Milo’s Sanctuary, they felt Thomas deserved better than to be put down. You see, Milo’s Sanctuary is used to working with cats that have special needs and they didn’t have any trouble helping Thomas.
