About the Campaign
Tommy was on the force, for real!
He was part of the Kansas City Police Dept.
Ok, Tommy wasn’t out arresting criminals, but he was catching mice. Really! He was the mouser for the police department’s stables. The Kansas City (Missouri) PD had a mounted division and Tommy patrolled the barn. Are you a rat getting in the hay? You are under arrest! A raccoon trying to steal carrots? Paws up!
Though he was a top quality mouser, Tommy wasn’t that good with city politics. In 2019 the city closed the mounted division, and thus the barn. Tommy was out of a job, but also just about ready to retire. That is where his current owner Bill came in.
Bill worked for the Kansas City parks and rec department, and he adopted Tommy when the stables closed. All good! And it has been good for years. But now Tommy needs some help.
What is wrong:
Tommy got a tumor on his tummy in late summer of 2022. Bill on a small fixed income, so he rallied up some police folks and cat lovers, and got Tommy surgery to remove the tumor. But here is the thing: the tumor came back.
Tommy is now with a doctor we know well, Dr. Tarantino (no relation!) at Blue Ridge Animal Hospital. The doctor has Tommy staying at the clinic, and is hopeful that removal of the tumor again, making sure to get all of the necessary mass, will help Tommy a lot.
So, back the mew! Support a cat that served his community with a donation today, you’ll be proud that you did 🙂
