Facts about Abby

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB March 31, 2012.

Abby is a beautiful, slim brown tabby. She was rescued from the outdoors by TCR while pregnant and gave birth to five beautiful kittens in her foster home, all of which found homes.

Abby is shy and skittish at first, but she is very loving once she gets to know you. She will come to you for pets many times a day, and especially loves getting scratched on her chin and rump. She has a loud rumbling purr. She is a very tidy and well-regulated eater, and has a funny quirk of scratching around her food dish before meals.

She gets along well with her fellow feline resident in her foster home and they love chasing each other around the house. She can also get into a game of laser pointer. She is good with cats, but can get territorial with female cats, so males only!

Abby will do best in an adults-only home. She can get scared if chased around and will sometimes bite if she feels threatened or over-stimulated, so a house with toddlers is probably not the best home for her.

She is a good cat with a good heart! All she needs is a little patience at first while she gets used to her new surroundings, and she will be a sweet and loyal companion.

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!


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.
