Facts about Slim

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB: January 27, 2014

Slim loves to snuggle. he is a purring machine, and will knead you gently while you rub his ears, and then fall asleep on you. He has no problem investigating, but takes a while to get comfy with a location, and after he gets comfortable with you he'll love to be around you all the time. Once he really gets to know you, he'll put his paw on your arm to say "please cuddle!" and roll onto his back for a tummy rub.

That Slim is such a sweet boy is really amazing as he has a sad backstory. He was abandoned outside this winter and had a rough go of it. He came to us as a scrawny, skinny boy, unspayed, with bad teeth and matted, ratty fur. But over the last couple months he has made an amazing turnaround! We nursed him back to health and has had teeth removed. Because of this, he's a bit of a pirate - his lip catches on a fang, and he looks like he is snarling at you (two teeth) or sneering at you (one tooth). And he drools when he sleeps (but who doesn't???) Otherwise he is completely fine, health-wise. He may look a little ferocious, but he really is a pussy cat (obvs).

Slim has one little behaviour bugaboo: when he's unsure or nervous he may pee on something to say "mine". This is not unusual cat behaviour. When you first take him home, keep him in a small space until he feels secure enough to feel at home.

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 adopt@torontocatrescue.ca.

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!

Note:

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.
