Early in life Thompson was caught in a trap and lost a part of himself. Excuse him then if he seems a little bit jumpy and wary of things that are new and unexpected. But he has a heart so big that he's willing to jump into the fray when he gets an opportunity. He loves his routine (meals, belly rubs, and a soft place to lay his head) and he still keeps an observant eye on things going on out there. It may not always look like it, but he finds his way to keep up with others.
This boy discovered during his first year in life that the world is all about his favorite four letter word: play. All the world is one big toy as far as he can see. Don't let that totally blank look he gives fool you. He's just resting a moment before he pounces, chases, or does something some in the house see as immeasureably cute while others find tiring.

A boy who lives up to everything about his species. Endlessly curious, friendly in a clunky way (which he'd deny as he regularly demonstrates by his swagger and strut) suave when he wants to be; impossible to ignore, soft as silk. Biggest nightmare? Getting stranded in a room full of rocking chairs (in other words he has a long, impressive tail).
