DOB May 8th, 2016
Hi! My name is Papaya and I've been with my foster mom for a few weeks now. Before my foster mom, I was very under-socialized and occasionally, I still run away from people approaching me. I enjoy to be pet under my chin and on my back. I'm still very young, so the best way to interact with me is to get my playing!
When my sister and bigger siblings play, I get a little crazy! I like to chase feather wands the most, but I'll really play with anything. Shoelaces, hair elastics, you name it.
I used to be a feral kitty, but now I'm happily indoors, though because of my past, I can be a little shy.
I would do best in a home with other cats, preferably playful as well. I wouldn't be good with children, or rambunctious dogs, because I frighten easily.
With love and care I could be a fantastic and affectionate cat.

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.
