What a character Polka Dot is. He entertains everyone with his silly antics and playful nature. He often walks around the house with a toy ball in his mouth or spends his time chasing dust flecks in the air. He is currently seeking his forever home, or a single-cat foster home until he gets adopted!
Wherever he is and whatever is around him he can turn it into a game. Polka Dot is a happy boy who doesn’t appear to have a care in the world. When he is done with all of his playing, he also loves attention and will curl up in his foster mom’s lap to sleep while she watches TV. He rolls on his back for a belly rub and is fine to be picked up and cuddled. He has a cute little meow he makes when he wants attention. Polka Dot is a sweet boy with a gentle soul and a playful nature.
He was rescued from outside along with his mom (Amber) and his siblings (who have all been adopted). It is Polka Dot’s turn to find his forever family. Polka Dot is Feline Leukemia Positive. Despite having the virus he is currently in good health, but most likely the Feline Leukemia virus could cause complications down the road. However, for now he is a engaging, stunning boy who deserves a proper chance to have a forever home. Although he does get along with other cats, he can only go to a home with other cats if they are also Feline Leukemia positive, as it is a contagious virus to cats only. He lives with big dogs and a child and he is fine with all of them. Polka Dot is a real show stopper and is guaranteed to make you fall in love with him.
In hopes of finding Polka Dot his purr-fect family, we are waiving our standard adoption fee of $175 for a donation of your choice.
Polka Dot was born July 30, 2012 and has been neutered and vaccinated. To adopt, call us 416-538-8592, press #1 / email us: firstname.lastname@example.org / fill in our adoption online form on our Adopt A Cat page. To foster (single-cat family please), fill in our Foster Application.
April 21st to 27th, 2013 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. Toronto Cat Rescue would like to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers for their amazing dedication, time and passion. We are 100% volunteer with no government funding, so without our volunteers Toronto Cat Rescue would not exist.
Please take a few minutes and leave a message for our amazing Toronto Cat Rescue volunteers!
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!
Join us on Saturday, March 30th from 10am – 5pm for an adopt-a-thon with Pet Uno! Royal Canin is sponsoring the event, so adopters will get some fun freebies and coupons. Special adoption fees: Our adoption fee at the event only is $100 for cats over 6 months, $175 for kittens under 6 months, but $250 for a pairs of kittens under 6 months of age. The adoption fee ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the medical attention they need, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (and receive a rabies vaccination if age appropriate). Our fee also includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance.
Please welcome a new furry family member (or two!) into your home. There will be lots of kitties waiting to meet you outside of their foster homes.
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!
