He was adopted by Doug, who at 85 years old said he’d like an older cat too. He renamed the cat Thomas and wrote to the branch to tell them how Thomas was settling in. His letter reads:
After hearing about a 15-year-old tabby needing a place where 'he can spend his remaining years in the comfort of a loving home with an armchair to relax in', I was taken to meet Butch. To my delight and everyone's surprise he jumped at once onto my knees and, with a confident rumbling purr, made my acquaintance. That was mid-August. Butch, who I renamed Thomas, came to live with me on 16 September after my summer holiday. Now it’s a few days into October and in that short time Thomas has happily begun to make his home with me and what a delight that has been.
