Brother Oliver managed to sneak his camera into Kitty Valhalla while the Guardians were trying to coax forth the True Spirit of Thomas. He is still a very timid kitty, and likely will continue to be for a long time, but with the help of a new mouse toy the Guardians have been able to help him come out of his shell now and then. Take a look. I think Brother Oliver’s photos speak for themselves.
The little guy is definitely still in there. He hasn’t been lost to the wilds forever as sometimes happens to neglected and abandoned kitties. It’s understandable that it will take a while to earn Thomas’s trust though considering his first guardians left him in a pile of garbage. The Brothers and I are all just happy that the Guardians found him and brought him inside where he will be safe. I visit him as often as I can and tell him over and over that I was just like him once, and that in time his fear will subside.
Of course, Thomas still replies as he has from the beginning by saying, “I doubt it!”, but I think I detect some weakening of his doubt.
We’ll keep working with our frightened little brother. He may feel like giving up on humans because of the way his previous guardians treated him, but The Brothers, the Guardians of Otis and I will never give up on him.
So Sayeth Otis
