Facts about Mickey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB July 6, 2008.

Mickey is a big cat - not a fat cat, just a big-boned, lovable sweetheart. He has the cutest baby pink nose, with a big head, big paws and a lot of fur. It is suspected he has some Maine Coon somewhere down his ancestral line (just not to give you the wrong idea, he’s definitely smaller than a Maine Coon). He is definitely 100% handsome!

Mickey came to his foster family after his owner had passed away. He was a little shaken by the rapid changes that followed this sad event: being put in a shelter with so many different fellow-cats wasn’t something he appreciated. Nor did he appreciate the vet who pulled some of his teeth. He showed his discontentment by hiding away, for at least a week, behind his foster family's underwear drawers (somehow a very popular place with ALL their foster cats).

It didn’t help that they had to feed him medication twice a day, an act that he refused to participate in by keeping his jaws shut tight. So yeah, after a week of hiding and pill - feeding a truce was reached and slowly, but surely, Mickey decided his foster humans weren’t so bad after all. A little (sorry, no, BIG) purr-machine evolved before their eyes. It turns out, this adorable sweetheart LOVES humans!! He also loves to play laser pointer with you!

Mickey likes nothing better than to sit with you on the couch, sleep propped up against you or ‘head-bunt’ himself against your leg. Mickey is a little jumpy though, and his foster family has a theory about that… they think his previous owner was perhaps a bit slower in his/her last years of their life. Whenever his foster parents walk slowly, he won’t run away. He is nervous of unfamiliar noises, but with time will get used to his home and relax more.

A great character-trait of Mickey’s is that he talks a LOT. He responds to his name, lets you know when he’s been to the litter box, and just generally makes noise at night. Mickey is just a great, great (pun intended) cat and he has ALL the qualities to make someone really happy, but he is best suited as an only cat in an adult-only family (because of his jumpiness). Mickey can't wait to meet you and be welcomed into your quiet, loving 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!
