Facts about Zorro

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB August 3, 2009.

Meet Zorro! The lovable laid-back hunk who wants nothing more than a family that will give him chin scratches and pets, and in return he will always repay you with purring and head butts. He is a very easy going fellow that will greet you at the door when you get home, and will spend his time following you around and cuddling up beside you once you sit or lie down. Although not a full lap cat, Zorro loves to climb over you so that he can endearingly headbutt your cheek or nose, or simply get to your other side where your hand is resting (for petting him of course!). Just look into those big yellow eyes and not want to pet this guy all day - good luck!

Zorro does have quite a playful side as well - bust out a laser pointer and Zorro will be running all over the house and jumping on the walls to catch the red dot! When you eventually have to put the laser pointer down don’t fret, Zorro usually finds a spring or some other form of toy to bat around to keep himself entertained. Zorro doesn’t mind being picked up, wearing a collar or harness, or even getting in a carrier. Strangers are no issue for Zorro, as they’re simply more people who he can win over to petting him.

Zorro was surrendered to a shelter by a family that was moving and just didn’t have the time for a cat anymore. Poor Zorro is the perfect gentleman and it’s hard to believe someone could ever give him up. Per his intake form, he is playful with other cats.

Zorro has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). FIV+ cats can live long happy lives with a good diet, low stress, indoor homes, loving families, and annual vet check-ins. He does not require medication. He can live in a home with other non-FIV+ cats, as the virus is only passed to other cats by blood (ie. deep bite marks). Please do not judge him based on a blood test!

His foster family shares: "Zorro deserves a second chance with a family that actually cares about him, and I have no doubt that he will brighten the lives of any family that he becomes a part of. You’ll be hard pressed not to fall in love with him the moment you meet him.".

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.
