*Urgent* Indoor / Outdoor Home Needed For Archie

Little Archie needs a family!

Archie is a smart, playful and affectionate boy who was rescued from life on the streets last September. His rescuers brought him in for the winter, but continued to give him access to the outdoors on their cat-proof balcony. His rescuers surrendered him to a TCR foster home recently, as Archie did not get along with their resident cat.  He is very unhappy as an indoor only cat in a small apartment and as a result he has starting acting out.

Archie needs a new foster or forever home as soon as possible.  He is an adorable, lovable, chatty, indoor/outdoor boy.  Please help us help Archie.

Archie’s new home should be a single-pet home, and he’d love a larger sized apartment/condo, or even better, a house. Archie is a rare case in that he needs access to the outdoors, and while almost all cats adjust to indoor-only living, he cannot. TCR is looking for a home for him that will provide supervised, secure access to the outdoors, ideally via a cat den, enclosed deck, or secure backyard.

Archie was born January 2008 and is FIV/FeLeuk negative. He will be microchipped prior to adoption. He is a lovely chatty boy, who plays fetch and begs like a puppy. He purrs loudly and loves his treats.  hank-you, we appreciate it – and so does Archie!

Welcome To Newcastle!

Bright-eyed and playful Tanner seeks family.

The Newcastle Colony is now a managed feral cat colony that was started and almost entirely completed in February 2011, as a collaborative project between Toronto Cat Rescue and Urban Cat Relief in Newcastle, Ontario. All but one new female and one trap elusive male have been trapped, fixed, and returned to their home at the colony, where they are fed daily and have shelter. The colony consists of 14 cats total, 6 of whom were breeding females! Luckily this colony was totally TNR’d (minus the one new female) before any kittens were born! Two adoptable cats, Tanner and Rocky (Rocky has been adopted!), were also taken into the TCR foster system.

Donations to help with the expenses of this colony are greatly appreciated – we estimate the total medical bills so far to be around $1,600-1,800, as there was a medical emergency with one of the cats because she got a piece of string stuck around her tongue. You may donate online via CanadaHelps. Thank you for your support!

Note: Feral cats are too wild to live as companion animals because they have never had exposure to humans, however they are exactly the same as our indoor companions in every other way.  Toronto Cat Rescue’s mandate focuses on educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering for both owned and feral cats. For feral cats we promote what is known as Trap-Neuter-Return (Monitor).
