Toronto Cat Rescue wishes everyone a safe and happy Easter long weekend!
Please remember that lilies are highly toxic to cats. If a cat ingests even a small amount, it can do severe damage to their kidneys (more information). If you are bringing a festive Easter lily or Spring bouquet that includes lilies into your home, please ensure the flowers are placed where your cat cannot nibble on them.

A BIG thank you to Pet Valu for the Adopt-A-Thon events at their Pet Appreciation Weekend April 9th & 10th!
For the month of April please continue to go into TCR’s associated Pet Valu locations and donate a $1 by purchasing a PAW. Seventy-five cents of every dollar goes to Toronto Cat Rescue and the wonderful cats who still need forever homes. Also, log onto the PAW Contest and enter to win free ipads, pet food and pet products!
At Pet Valu on Bloor we had a great turn out. Lots of people came by to say hello to the cats, and so many people donated $1 to PAW. We have raised so much money for Toronto Cat Rescue (total still to come). Thank you so much to Stephen and his wonderful team at the store who put up balloons, big signs, great deals/door prizes and encouraged people to donate. We had two kitties adopted! Jeffie and Chester were both adopted into loving homes with great families to spoil them the way they deserve. We also had lots of people interested in the cats that were there who will hopefully come back and adopt (see cats that were at the Adopt-A-Thon), as well as many people asking questions and getting educated! All-in-all it was definitely a successful day.
Thanks again to all those who came out and donated. Thanks to our very special volunteers who volunteered their time and talent to helping make the weekend a great success. We really appreciate it… and so do the cats!
Hunnie found herself dumped or abandoned at a feral cat colony last summer, and started showing up for food at some of the feeding hotspots on the street. What an unfair fate for a pet cat at the age of 13 to be left to fend for herself! Before TCR trapped this girl she was living outside, but was lucky enough to have a winter shelter and daily food. Hunnie was spayed by someone early in her life, so the story as to how she ended up an abandoned cat is a mystery. This poor girl was living outside with hardly any teeth!
Now safe indoors in a short-term recovery home, TCR is looking for a foster or adoptive family to take her in. She is very friendly and loves to be stroked, and she seems to be okay with other cats. Other than having hardly any teeth left Hunnie is a healthly girl and she so desperately hopes she can have her very own retirement home! She really is a miracle kitty for surviving such a brutal winter at her age, and we think it’s time for her to stop having to worry about her basic survival!
Hunnie has been adopted!
