Thor

Chief Morale Officer

Thor's Bio

Thor came to us as a kitten. He was adopted out but returned to us as an adult. Thor loves when pets come in to see him and leave treats for him to clean up. He has a big personality, and yes, only one eye, but don’t let that fool you. He can see shadows out of his right eye and spot a treat from a mile away.
