Thomasina's mom: Ruth Koschorreck
Ruth adopted Thomasina when she was about four months old. A friend asked Ruth if she would take this sweet looking stray kitten, since Ruth’s friend already had several male cats of her own. Thomasina was a very loving cat, who loved to snuggle and cuddle up with Ruth. One of her favorite places to curl up and snuggle was a shoebox. She seemed a little shy of strangers, and would stay close to Ruth.
One day, Ruth discovered Thomasina had refined taste in music, when Thomasina started listening very intently to opera singing on TV!
Thomasina was used to indoor living, which is why Ruth was so distraught when one day Thomasina slipped out the front door while furniture was being moved in. After two weeks, Ruth had given up hope of ever seeing her beloved Thomasina again, when a neighbor’s cat’s meow drew Ruth’s attention to her doorstep. There was the neighbor’s cat, along with Thomasina! Back home, again!
