Facts about Tommy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB: June 15, 2008

Tommy is the sweetest cat I have ever had the pleasure to spend time with. He is the king of the couch and loves to be brushed and pet. If you're on the sofa, it's pretty much a guarantee he'll be right beside you purring away nudging for belly rubs (yes he LOVES belly rubs!). He is a vocal boy and loves to meow and chatter with you. Tommy would make the perfect addition to a mature household as he is sometimes a little skittish around loud noises. Tommy has come along way and will continue to improve in the right environment. He tolerates dogs, but would do much better in a pet free home.

He uses his litter box very well, but is a big boy and sometimes partially misses the box. Picking a large litter box and making sure it is always clean has essentially eliminated that problem.

Tommy came to TCR as an owner surrender but visits to the vet have given us some more insight into Tommy's earlier life. His clipped left ear and puffy cheeks indicate that Tommy likely came from a colony and was neutered later in life. He is a true Tom Cat, turned cuddly mama’s boy!!

Tommy is a big boy at 21lbs and will need some more help losing the extra weight. He will require two feedings a day (but he'll always ask for more) rather than free feeding as he does not understand portion control yet. With the help of a feeding ball and the discovery of his love of flying feather toys Tommy is already on the right track!

The day I met Tommy I knew he was special. His personality is 10 times bigger than he is. He is constantly goofing around filling my home with funny chirps and so much love. I will miss Tommy greatly, but am so excited for him to find his forever home.

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!


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.
