Facts about Mira

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB December 31, 2008.

Mira is a big, friendly eight-year-old who's getting friendlier and more active every day. She came to her foster home very overweight, but has been dieting and dropping pounds like a champ. She can now jump onto low chairs, which is an achievement for her. Her foster parents are very proud!

She's a great snuggle buddy and work companion. Her current foster parents work from home, and Mira loves to feel like part of the team, so she has a favourite chair next to the worktable that she occupies faithfully, with occasional breaks to go chase down errant specks of dust, phantom bird-noises, and various ants.

Mira also loves: hunting and batting at plastic bags, being brushed, and pretending to be a dog. She's extremely playful and loves to play-fight with chairs, table legs, and various walls. She might wake you up a bit early to be fed, but she'll also stick right by your side when you wake up, and keep you company throughout the day. While not a lap-cat, Mira is definitely a people-cat. She loves getting to curl up next to you while you watch TV or read a book. She will make an amazing little companion.

Thank you for welcoming a senior cat into your family - an adoption fee of your choice is appreciated versus our standard adoption fee of $175.

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!
