Marvin and Seuss are the most gentle, calm and loving pair you could hope for. These brothers have never been apart and they really do enjoy each others company. You’ll find them grooming each other, playing, or just hanging out. They love to snuggle under your bedspread (no need for electric blankets!) and when you are around they’ll come say hi, crawl onto your lap and nuzzle up to you. They’re cheerful and oh so chilled out. If you want companions that will just fit right in with your lifestyle, these boys are perfect! They have never been outdoors, and they are in perfect health.
Marvin is a lap cat, he’ll curl up and go straight to sleep. He likes to hide in small, dark places when left alone, but comes out immediately for affection when you come home. He can be a little shy, but loves cuddles once he feels safe. He often meows when you wake up in the morning until you pat his head to say hello!
Seuss (named after the Dr.!) is braver than Marvin he’ll always check things out to let Marvin know everything is okay. He loves to roll upside down on your lap, and he is more likely to sleep right next to your or behind your head than on your lap. He can be quite playful at times, a bit more than Marvin. He broke his hip joint from his femur as a kitten (had surgery, no problems since, but one leg is an inch shorter now) and he can be a bit clumsy. He likes to be picked up and thrown over your shoulder. He will purr up a storm and hang out there as long as you let him, its adorably cute!
The brothers were adopted together many years ago. Their owner became very allergic to them and had to surrender them back to us. Please give them their forever home!
Just as people are living longer than they did 50 years ago, so are cats. Most people are reluctant to adopt a senior cat due to the fear of them passing away too soon.
Did you know that well cared for indoor cats can live to the age of 20 years? Cats are considered seniors when they turn eight years old! So why not consider adopting a senior kitty this March? Senior cats are some of the hardest to find forever homes for, so when you adopt a senior cat you are truly saving a life. For the month of March ALL of our senior kitties have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. $175) in an effort to help them get adopted into their warm and loving forever homes. View their profiles now!
Adopt Sweet Holly!
Reasons to adopt a senior cat:
- A senior cat’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
- A senior cat already knows basic household etiquette like litter box use and do’s/dont’s of playing.
- Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats that can get up to mischief.
- Senior cats make great napping buddies during the cold winter months.
- If you have a senior cat already, another cat of similar age can be less stressful for him/her than a young kitten (careful introduction of course).
- Senior cats are generally less demanding than younger cats so if you work long hours, they will be more forgiving of the time left alone.
- Again, senior cats are truly some of the hardest to find homes for, so when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life!
We had 42 adoptions this weekend from all of our PetSmart locations that participated in the adopt-a-thon!!! Thank YOU adopters, PetSmart, and all of the volunteers that made it this great success happen!!
Join us February 22nd to 24th at Toronto Cat Rescue’s affiliated PetSmart locations below for a HUGE Adopt-A-Thon event! Many, many kitties will be in-store waiting for their forever families to adopt them… will you add a furry member to your family? The cats sure hope so!!
ALL kitties at the event will have a reduced adoption fee of $100 – all ages, all colours! This is an amazing deal as our adoption fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations (rabies when age appropriate) and 6 weeks of free pet insurance. PLUS: All adopters will receive from PetSmart a free bag of Purina Pro Plan dry, free Purina clumping litter and other coupons for Petsmart merchandise and Purina food.
Twinkle is the sweetest cat who looks like a permanent kitten because she is so tiny! Unfortunately her current owner is no longer able to care for her, so Twinkle is seeking a new home.
Tiny Twinkle is gentle and loves affection. She loves to play and be brushed. She is very chatty and sweet. She easily gets along with children and loves dogs. She isn’t good with other cats. She would prefer a quiet, gentle retirement home.
This little dear has moderate kidney disease that doesn’t require treatment right now, but will so in the future. Twinkle needs someone who will be willing to help her during the ups and downs of the disease (her foster mom can answer any questions you may have). Due to her pending treatment, in lieu of our standard adoption fee, a donation of your choice is appreciated.
Please don’t pass her by due to her senior status – Twinkle has lots of love to give and is very entertaining with her cute mannerisms and expressions! She was born July 15, 1999 and has been spayed and vaccinated. To set-up a meet and greet or to adopt, call us 416-538-8592, press #1 / email us: email@example.com / fill in our adoption online form on our Adopt A Cat page.
Update: Fabulous news – the gals have been adopted together and are now in their forever home!
Meet Asher and Aristotle – two sweet, bonded, declawed sisters. The have been together eight years and completely love one another. These girls were in a home and the new baby was severely allergic to cats. The owners tried to find the girls a new home, but were unable. Asher and Aristotle found themselves dumped in a shelter – absolutely terrified. One day they had been in their happy home, the next in a noisy, scary cage. The shelter worker was nice, and advocated for them to be rescued and kept together. A Toronto Cat Rescue foster home took them in and showed them kindness. The girls started to feel more comfortable and at ease. They are healthy sisters, who will curl up and sleep together. TCR feels the sisters need to stick together forever – please take these easy going cats into your home!
Because we would love to have them adopted quickly, they have a reduced adoption fee of $200 for the pair (vs. $175 each). They have been spayed, vaccinated and declawed and were born July 1, 2004.
