Since then I have been mom to the sweetest cat there is, Tom. (Except for when my friend took care of him for me for 6 months. Thank you!)
Tom has given me so much already in just one year. He acts as a prompt alarm clock when I over sleep my alarm. He becomes my bedside buddy in times of homesickness and heartache.
He's there for me when I open the door after stressful days of work and ready to tackle me in the morning.
Happy Birthday my little Tom! I hope you have many more and we get to share more wonders of the world together.
