Local Girl Bella Needs Your Help

bellaSweet Bella is a gentle, loving princess who likes to take it easy and relax on the couch whenever possible. She loves to sit right beside her humans, and will happily let you pet her for hours. Bella wakes up from her naps to play with her favourite toys (the yo-yo and laser mouse!). She likes to be mischievous and drink from any water cup she can find, and will tip the cup over while looking right at you. She is a very saucy entertainer who will put a smile on your face every day. Once Bella opens her heart up to you, she bonds like no other.

Bella has had a rough go of things from a medical perspective. Thanks to generous support from TCR supporters, like you, she has received the medical attention she has needed. She has had multiple operations over the past year. The most recent was a surgery to remove an obstruction, which has left her with a big incision scar. Thankfully Bella is recovering in the care of her loving foster family, and is finally feeling much better! Bella is on the mend, but the bills have mounted to nearly $10,000. We all hope (Bella included!) she doesn’t have to endure any more trips to the vet for awhile.

donateWe are reaching out for your help to make sure Bella has the care she needs to live a full and happy life. Toronto Cat Rescue covers the veterinary bills for all the cats in our care. With your support, we can ensure that we don’t have to turn any cat away because of high medical expenses. Did you know that TCR spends over $500,000 every year on vet bills, from neutering and vaccination to major surgeries, like Bella’s? We rely on the generosity of donors like you to help save cats every day. Please consider giving generously to help Bella and other cats like her. Thank you!

Introducing Houdini and Einstein!

Houdini and Einstein are two handsome, brown tabby brothers who are seeking their forever home… and they are as special as they look! Please open your heart and home to these little dudes today.

“Houdini and Einstein here, and yes we are as smart as our names lead you to believe! We are biological brothers who have been together since the day we were born and hope to stay together til the end of time. 

We were recently diagnosed with Feline Leukaemia (FeLV), but don’t let that worry you we are both very happy, healthy, big 9 month old kittens.

FeLV is only in cats and cannot be passed onto other breeds of animals in the home. Other cats can contract FeLV through blood and saliva, so we can only be adopted into a home without other cats, or cats with FeLV. We both love dogs – big and small! The parrot in our foster home is our very own “cat TV” that we like to watch all day long. So far all the animals we’ve met we’ve really liked, so we’ve never had a reason to get angry at anyone. 

We have shown no signs of illness (we only found out because our mom got sick). We can live for many years symptom free and we’d be happy to teach you all of our amazing wisdom; like how we can climb to the top shelf of your linen closet and sleep among your towels while you run around the house looking for us. We both love hide n seek. Neither of us are really into snuggling during a movie, or curling up beside you on the couch. As like most intellectuals we’re both introverts and prefer our quiet alone time. Wherever there is a window letting in the sunshine is where you’ll find Houdini. The highest, softest perch in the house is where you’ll find Einstein giggling watching you run around looking for him. 

We are really excited to join our forever family… will it be you? We sure hope so! Purrs, and love!”

The boys were born August 1, 2017, and have been neutered and vaccinated. To adopt, call TCR 416-538-8592, press #1, fill in our adoption online form on our Adopt A Cat page.

Happy Family Day!

cute_cat_closedsign-600x450We’re going to be hanging out with our families on Family Day (Monday, February 19th), so Toronto Cat Rescue’s Volunteer Centre will be closed to the public for the day.

For those with the day off, here’s some info about what’s open and closed in the GTA, and in Kitchener. We hope you have a safe and purr filled day!
