Facts about Bella

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Age: Approximately 6 or 7 years old

Bella has a beautiful while bib on her throat. As well, she has scalloped white paws. Bella is a lovely girl who is happiest when she is sitting beside you on the couch. And if there are two people on the couch that she can squeeze between she is even happier. Bella has a purr that not only fills the room, you can hear her throughout the house.

Bella loves to walk around the house and play with her squeaky mouse. Throughout the day the squeaky mouse will be found in various locations no matter how often it is put back in the cat toy box. After Bella and her brother Handsome became familiar with their foster home, the foster parents would come downstairs in the morning to a mess of cat toys spread throughout the living room and dining room. But now Bella has decided the squeaky mouse is the best.

Right now Bella and Handsome, sleep on the main floor of the house as the resident three house cats “protect” the upstairs and their owners from any intruders, feline or otherwise. However, if her foster Mom gets up in the night Bella is immediately upstairs to greet her and get a pet. Bella is waiting for an owner that she can sleep with. Once Handsome and Bella were at the family cottage without the owner’s cats. Bella was immediately on the bed and slept beside her foster Mom. At breakfast, Bella and Handsome claim the foster parents’ attention alone for lots of petting.

Bella and Handsome and four other cats were found dumped outside an apartment block slated for demolition after the people had been moved out. They were all trapped by volunteers who help TCR and the Toronto Feral Cat Coalition. Of the six cats one was immediately adoptable and was placed with Toronto Animal Services. Bella is the next most adoptable. However, her foster mother kept her to help with Handsome as he learned to trust humans by watching Bella.

Both Bella and Handsome are now ready to go to their own homes. In an ideal world Bella and Handsome would go to the same new home, however they would both be fine in a home of their own.
Bella would love to be the newest addition to your family and find an owner of her own that she can share a bed with! Bella has lived in a house with two adults that is relatively quiet. She is great around others who have looked after her, when the foster parents were away. It is unknown how she would be with children. Bella can't wait to meet you!

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.
