Facts about Prudence

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB February 2, 2007.

Prudence is a big personality and super sweet at the same time! She starts purring as soon as you say her name. Although shy and cautious at first, once she warms up to you she'll be your best friend. She loves to be pet and given kitty massages. She'll gently put her paw out if you stop petting her as if to say "please continue!". She enjoys a five minute knead from time to time. It has to be the right amount of softness and she just loves it. She likes being snuggled, but prefers to sit next to you instead of on you - on her own terms.

Prudence is a senior car but still needs significant playtime. She plays on her own, but loves if you join in. She does well with other cats for company but not necessarily to play with. She is currently the dominant cat in her foster home. She just loves food - and your food too if you don't watch! She would do well with windows or a window sill so she can look outside. She is memorized by the birds and the squirrels!

Prudence came in as a stray needing some extra medical attention. Since in foster care she licks and scratches her tummy and legs etc. as if they are irritating her. She is currently on and off medication and food trials. The vet and her foster family are working together on a solution to eliminate the problem.

Her foster family shares: "One of my favourite things about Prudy is waking up in the morning and having that furry face staring right at me so excited for me to wake up and say good morning to her. Her personality is really the most rewarding part of her. She deserves a very loving and caring home."

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...

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!
