Facts about Sheridan

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB June 9, 2010.

Sheridan was very leery and shy when she came to her foster home but has become very sweet and friendly. She enjoys meeting visitors and likes to be petted. She is a super-sized girl so is not a lap cat and dislikes being picked up. She likes to lie on the bed with her foster mom at night.

She loves playing with fishing rod toys, foil balls, and other balls that are thrown so she can chase them. She will play by herself with a foil ball or a string hanging from a chair.

Sheridan dislikes being groomed: she may snarl or spit, but is not vicious. When she first arrived at her foster home, she did not groom herself, but now she's back in the habit. It would be helpful to have her claws trimmed regularly at the vet's or a groomer's. Sheridan may have been abused or treated roughly in past--she doesn't enjoy being touched on the top of her head, the base of her tail, or her toes. But she loves being stroked under her chin and enjoys belly pats.

Sheridan has become more comfortable, playful, and relaxed. She loves sitting on a chair where she can look out the window, but seems reluctant to get up on anything that is not perfectly stable. She uses a scratching post regularly but won't get up on the cat trees, possibly because of her weight. Sheridan will be a very loving pet to the right family.

About Toronto Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Toronto Cat Rescue is a registered, no-kill charity run by volunteers.

Our mission is to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats from situations of abuse, neglect or imminent euthanasia.

Our vision is for Toronto to be a city in which no adoptable cat is killed and rescue organizations such as Toronto Cat Rescue are no longer needed.

Our registered charity number: 889-198-727-RR-0001

Our Adoption Process...

Decided on the cat or kitten you would like to adopt? Please call 416-538-8592, or email

An adoption counsellor will return your call and give you more details about the cat you are interested in and ask some questions about your home to make sure the cat will be a "purr-fect" fit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well.

You will be supplied with the foster home address to have a meet and greet with your kitty. If both parties are happy, you can sign the TCR Contract of Adoption, pay the adoption fee and take your cat home with you in a safe carrying case.

Adoption fee is $175 per cat. This ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the attention they need, are spayed or neutered, and receive a rabies vaccination at the appropriate age. It includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. For City of Toronto residents, the adoption fee includes a mandatory City of Toronto cat license that is valid for one year. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations and ongoing fundraising efforts carry us the rest of the way!


1. ALL senior cats (8 years or older) have an adoption fee of the adopters choice, vs. our standard adoption fee of $175.

2. Our adoption fee for an adult bonded pair (8 months or older) is $100 per cat vs. $175 per cat.
