Facts about Whippet

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB April 11, 2015

Gorgeous Whippet came to us with his two siblings when he was 4 months old, he was feral and he had very poor social skills. After a lot of socialization work in his current foster home, he's shown great improvements. He still need socialization and an environment with a very social cat who love human companionship will help him get even more trustful towards humans. Although he's sometimes shy and shows his fear by hissing and trying to scratch (if you push his limits), lately when he's resting, he enjoys the occasional forehead and tail petting. A household with an outgoing cat who can show him it's OK to trust humans, and a human companion who will be patient with him is preferred. He's currently not a lap cat, but in the right environment, with the right patient and loving person, he could easily be. He's still scared of many things including children (and the noise they make!) , so the socialization may be slower in their presence. He hisses and may still show aggressive behavior such as trying to scratch when he's scared. Someone who has experience, understands cats and has a lot of patience will be best.

He's a cat with the attitude of a lion king. He has a great personality, and once you lock eyes with him, he bewitches you. He's curious, playful and enjoys life. Once he trusts humans fully, he will be a very outgoing cat. He's addicted to Temptations treats which he will eat right off your hand and LOVES the presence of other cats. He trills at them all the time, enjoys playing and grooming other them. He's a playful cat, any toy with string and laser pointer will get him going. He loves to climb on the cat tree or anywhere high where he can observe the situation.

Only the right home will be considered. Everyday Whippet demonstrates progress and he has bonded with our 8 month old social kitten. He's got a larger than life personality and we grew very fond and are proud of him. He will stay will us and continue his socialization journey until we find him the perfect home! Is Whippet the newest addition to your loving and patient family?

About Toronto Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

***ALL cats over 8 months of age have a reduced adoption fee of $100 for the month of August 2016!!***

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 a bonded pair is $100 per cat, vs. $175 per cat.
