Facts about Handsome

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Age: Approximately 6 or 7 years old.

Handsome has the best paws in the world. They are very large, with white scalloped ends and tufts of fur coming out of the bottom of the paws. When he is being petted he kneads the floor and shows off these beautiful paws.

Handsome loves to be petted and loves to sit in the middle of the space between the kitchen and the dining room watching the action as his foster parents get food prepared, breakfast, lunch or dinner doesn’t matter. He also sits between the foster parents at breakfast time waiting to be petted.

Bella and Handsome and four other cats were found dumped outside an apartment block after the people had been moved out. They were all trapped by volunteers who help with several organizations. One was immediately put up for adoption and five were placed in foster homes.

Handsome, originally named Hissy Boy by the trappers, has come such a long way. When he first arrived at the foster home he hid under a towel in the bathtub and hissed at anything that came close. It was clear he had been abused as any loud noise or the beginnings of a raised hand resulted in him running and hiding. Once settled in the foster home, his foster mother decided he needed a new name that he could grow into and renamed him Handsome Boy, now just Handsome. Handsome, with the help of his sister Bella has done beautifully.

He is a curious cat that watches and takes in everything. Now when his foster parents have company for dinner Handsome inspects each guest and ensures those he knows fulfill their job of petting and admiring him. Handsome loves to sleep on the rug next to a heated wall and at the bottom of the stairs to the second floor. He is the guard cat of the main floor.

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. Handsome would love to be the newest addition to your family where he can get lots of attention.

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.
