Facts about Melon

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

Melon is a funny, sweet girl who will squeak at you in the silliest way for kibble or a few scratches on her head. She's a big girl who loves her food, but otherwise healthy.

Her ideal environment would be a quiet one with no children or other pets. She just wants her food, a place to snooze and the occasional bit of petting (once she's comfortable with you). She uses her litter box perfectly. She's always been an indoor cat. Melon would be perfect company for a quiet individual or couple.

Full disclosure: unless you give her something else to scratch and keep her nails trimmed, she will scratch your furniture. If you keep her coat short (pay a groomer or DIY), she doesn't shed as much as other cats her current owner has had. Also, she sometimes yowls at night but it happens less if you take her toys away at night - she likes to carry them in her mouth and then "yell" about it. (Lots of detail there but wanted any potential adopters to know the whole story.)

Melon is participating in our Courtesy Adoption Posting Program and is not the property of Toronto Cat Rescue. Toronto Cat Rescue does not accept responsibility for any pet placements that result from this service. If you need more info or would like to adopt please contact Marc at directly. Thank you!

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...

***AUGUST ONLY*** All our cats two years and older have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. our standard fee of $175).

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.
