Important Note

Paddywhack is best friends with Mohawk. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
DOB August 30, 2015.

Although they don’t know it, Mohawk and Paddywhack are two exceptionally extraordinary cats. Initially when they were found in a box back in April, it was thought they had suffered severe injuries to their back legs. Their legs were badly deformed and they were unable to use them. A consult with a specialist confirmed that the deformities were likely congenital and that they were otherwise happy and healthy boys.

To initially see the boys is shocking, not just because they look so different, but because they have adapted perfectly despite their deformities. They run as fast as any other cats, climb and play just like any other cats, race up and down the stairs and use their litter box perfectly. Nothing holds these two back from living and enjoying life to the fullest.

Mohawk and Paddywhack are two of the sweetest cats you will meet. They are always happy to see you, never without a purr, and ready to snuggle by your side at night. They love everybody and everything – kids, other cats and dogs included.

Because they pull themselves around with their front legs and drag the back end of their body, they require a home without carpeting to cause friction burn. They will also need to remain on the lower end of a normal body weight. Because they are unable to jump, they do use their claws to climb up furniture.

This dynamic duo are ready to take over your home and your heart! Adopt them today by filling in our online adoption form now!

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.
