Happy Halloween!

Halloween Feline Reminders:

1. NO Halloween candy for your fabulous felines, it will make them really sick.  If you want to treat them, give them their favourite cat friendly snacks or catnip.  Read more: Chocolate Toxicity in Cats and Dogs / For a gross Halloween cat themed treat for people, make a Kitty Litter cake!

2. Keep your cats indoors on the week leading up to Halloween, and of course on Halloween night itself – crazy things are known to happen! If you are already making the smart choice of keeping your kitties inside, let your neighbors know to keep their cats inside and start a “neighborhood watch” for the local friendly kitties who are most at risk.

3. If kitty is dressing up this Halloween, please share a picture on Toronto Cat Rescue’s Facebook page – we would love to see!

Note: The lovely cat pictured in our “Happy Halloween” graphic is Eiryn – adopt her today!

  1. We adopted the most adorable 7 month old kitten from you. Her name was Suzie and we renamed her Riley. She died today. She was just 2 and a half years old and died from a liver disease. Our family is devastated. She was THE best cat. Please tell me, how do we go forward, adopt another cat, and know that she is healthy and going to live to 20!?

    • Hi Deborah, We are very sorry for your loss, how heartbreaking. Riley was very lucky to be loved by your family – it is the very best a little rescue cat can hope for! There is never any guarantee regardless of the cat you adopt (or even purchase from a breeder) that you will get a cat that will live until the ripe old age of 20. It is very tough, because we just can’t detect what the future holds, regardless of how much testing is done. There are so many unpredictable things that can happen, but adopting a young adult / adult cat is one suggestion we can offer.
