Toronto Cat Rescue

Support Our Scotiabank Marathon Team

Lucky number 7! This year is Toronto Cat Rescue’s 7th year involved with Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. On Sunday, October 22nd our team will sweat and pant together in the 5K walk/run, a half-marathon, or even a full marathon! We are a slow and yet steady bunch that have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $30,000.

You are probably wondering why we do this year after year. Every dollar raised in this event means another cat will be rescued and will find a loving forever home. So far in 2017, we have taken in over 1700 sick, injured, or vulnerable cats from situations of abuse, neglect and certain death. These cats have one life, not nine. We strive to make them as happy and healthy as possible. But we can only do that with your help.

You can support our team’s efforts by chosing to sponsor a team member, or the whole team and help us reach our goal! It’s really easy, just click here to support the team. Thank you!

Bring Mistress Mia Home

Mistress Mia has been waiting patiently for years to be adopted. She is a very special girl, who would love a family to call her own… a family with other cats! She has a special adoption fee of $50.

***

MISTRESS MIA is already spayed, up to date with shots, VERY good with cats, adult-only family, born December 13, 2011.

Does your kitty love other cats and want a loving friend, girlfriend, or life long companion? Look no further! Mistress Mia is a perfect match for any cat who is looking for their lifelong kitty companion.

Mia is often misunderstood by humans because she doesn’t like being touched by them, but she LOVES other cats and has one of the gentlest souls. Even though Mia does not enjoy physical contact with humans, she loves to hang around and be close to them and is always curious about what you are up to. Mia is the most low-maintenance cat, and her gentle, sweet, sassy essence will be a lovely presence in your home.

Mia loves to cuddle and play with other kitties, and has even been known to affectionately help out with grooming her kitty friends. She is flirty and sweet with male cats (which is fine because she is spayed!), and takes on a loving and nurturing personality with other female cats.

Mia’s other hobbies include catching and killing scary bugs for her foster parents, staring out the window happily for hour looking at the birds and the clouds, and taking long naps nearby her human family.

Mia has a glowing personality. She enjoys snacks of cat treats (chicken and tuna), and will come up to you and take the snack out of your hand with her paw. She appreciates when you respect her personal boundaries and will come sit near you and blink at you lovingly when she feels safe around you. Mia LOVES to play, either with a friend or by herself. She likes to connect with humans through playing with interactive toys, and will play with pretty much anything that she finds on the floor (although she is responsible and never eats things she isn’t supposed to).

Mia was rescued from a hoarder house with fifty other cats – no wonder she loves cats! This also attributes to why Mistress Mia doesn’t act like your typical kitty around humans; we are still new creatures to her and she is still learning the etiquette, but she has come a long way and gets more and more social every day!

Mia has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). FIV+ cats can live long happy lives with a good diet, low stress, indoor homes, loving families, and annual vet check-ins. She does not require medication. She can live in a home with other non-FIV+ cats, as the virus is only passed to other cats by blood (ie. deep bite marks). Please do not judge her based on a blood test! Mia is in excellent health, though sometimes she has a teary eye, but she is great at managing this herself. Mia is a very clean cat and never needs help with grooming, brushing or maintaining her claws (she is so happy with a scratching post).

Mia’s foster family shares: “Mia has brought so much joy and love to our home. When our own cat was ill with a degenerative disease (no cure/treatment), Mia was our saviour. Mia would cuddle and groom her little friend, and would even help her to the litter box when her disease progressed. When our cat passed away I could feel Mia mourning her friend. She now has a new foster kitty to pal around with and is so happy to have a companion. Her soul is sweet and gentle and even though she is very unique, she will be a perfect fit in someone’s loving and patient home.”.

Because Mia is seeking her special family, her adoption fee is $50, versus our standard $175… she hopes her adopter is YOU!
