Please help the cats and kittens in Toronto Cat Rescue foster care by becoming a TCR Agent – together we can help get them adopted into loving, forever homes!
Being a TCR agent is:
2. Free – it doesn’t cost a cent!
3. Location-less – you can do it where ever you live
4. Rewarding – it will make you feel great (and give a cat a second chance)
All you need to do is TALK:
Spread the word about Toronto Cat Rescue to all your friends and family that may be looking to adopt a cat, or will offer a cat a loving home. We have cats for everyone – all ages and personalities, cats that are loners, cats that love dogs / cats / rabbits, cats that act like dogs, cats that act like… well, cats.
Educate people on the rewards of having a cat to share their life with. From companionship to laughter and entertainment, cats are fairly low maintenance and small home friendly – and again, TCR has cats for everyone!
Direct people to our website (via direct link or a search engine) because it has all the information they will ever need on it, plus pictures and bios on all the sweet available cats. Facebook allows for easy sharing of information – join our group (we are a fun bunch!) and invite at least one other friend to join as well. Refer someone to this blog and ask them to subscribe! Again, it is easy, free, location-less and rewarding!
Added bonus: The more people you inform, the more people they can also inform – let’s get the ball rolling today!
Remember: The more cats and kittens that are adopted, the more kitties we can rescue from impending death and loneliness due to higher availability in our foster homes.
Please, we implore you to tell just one person – this small gesture may help save a cat that would otherwise not be saved. As always, all help is greatly appreciated… and one person can make a difference!
Update February 25th, 2011: This little fellow has happily been adopted into his forever home!! Lucky Bullet & lucky family!
It is amazing what some cats go through in their little lives and not only survive, but are highly adoptable and adaptable! We want you to meet Bullet because you might say he “dodged a bullet” and came out loving everyone who comes across his path. The volunteers at TCR are so happy that we were able to save this little fellow and hopes he goes from rags to riches!
Bullet got his name as he has a bullet (well a beebee) in his head. Yes, poor Bullet was shot in the forehead with a Beebee gun by some nasty person, and then dumped at a rural animal control shelter – abandoned, injured, scared and marked to be euthanized. Lucky for Bullet a TCR foster home was at the shelter and brought Bullet to the vet. The vet x-rayed Bullet and treated him with antibiotics, but it was felt that the pellet was better left in his head, so Bullet will live his life with a reminder of his “near death experience” in his forehead. None of this horrible experience has left Bullet worse for wear and TCR has given him a second chance at happiness, he is currently available for adoption.
Bullet loves to cuddle in for a good night sleep and is always there when you need a cheer up. From the time his foster family walk in the door from work he is there ready to greet you with chatter and meows and talk of how his day was and what he saw out the window. He loves to watch the squirrels and play fetch with a ball of tinfoil. He is an easy going guy who is happy to be loved. This is what his foster dad has to say about Bullet: “No matter how rough your day was, you know you’ll be greeted by a lovable cuddle bug who has missed you while you were away”. We think that says it all!!
Bullets Stats: DSH, brown tabby and white, male, neutered, vaccinated, DOB February 14, 2009 (of course this charmer is a Valentine’s Day baby!). If you would like to make a donation towards his x-ray & vet costs, please click here.

A fun game is to stroll slowly past your human when they are sitting down, trailing your tail across their leg in a loving manner. Rub your face on the corner of a nearby table, all the time purring and putting on a display of affection. When they attempt to pet you or lure you onto their lap, casually saunter away, leaving them bewildered and frustrated.
