Facts about Hassy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB September 8, 2014.

Hassy is a strikingly beautiful, affectionate and playful little kitty. She loves pets! When she first arrived at her foster home, she was very nervous of her new surroundings and preferred to say hidden. But she could not resist coming out when she suspected pats were involved! With lots of loving pats, it didn't take her long to settle into her new space. And once settled she was always near by, never turning down a pet or a play session. Playing with a wand-toy is her game of choice.

Hassy is quiet and doesn't meow much, but she does make delightful "mrrp" noises when you pet her. She is very communicative with her tail which she wags when she is happy or excited and will give YOU pats with it. Sometimes she'll sleep on the side of the bed with you, or sometimes she'll relax in the next room as you sleep, but when she hears you stir in the morning she's right by your side ready for her morning pats! If you don't get up right away, she may give your hand and fingers a few encouraging licks (adorable!), but she doesn't press the matter and let's you get up when you are ready. But don't forget the morning pats! They're her favourite.

Patting sessions can get Hassy excited and it might turn into an impromptu play session that would not be appropriate for children, so Hassy is best in an adult-only household. She gives you a cue that she is feeling feisty by opening her mouth up in a most adorable way! (see picture). When she gets feisty, just pull out the wand toy which seems to be just the thing she is in the mood for. It is now known how she is with other cats and dogs, but it is thought that Hassy would like to be your only feline friend. Adopt this fun-loving girl today.

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.
