Facts about Arwin

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB July 1, 2014.

Arwin is a very timid, shy girl, even though she has been in her foster home for a while now she still does at times hide when things get noisy or if she is frightened. She is unlike most cats in that wand toys seem to scare her and she will run and hide at any sudden movement of any kind.

Arwin has recently started to sleep on the bed with her foster mom and has let her foster mom know that she ‘loves’ to have her ears/face scratched. She will put her head on her foster moms open hand at night once the light is off and if she doesn’t start to give her scritches, Arwin will rub her head back and forth until her foster mom gets the hit. She has also just recently started to sleep near her foster mom’s feet for quite a while she would sleep at the far end of the bed. Because Arwin tends to be a bit on the scared side she has not always dealt well with the other cats in the home and has therefore been in her foster mom’s bedroom with very little activity (due to being scared of any toy other than what she can play with on her own) , because of this she has gained a fair amount of weight.

Her foster mom does not think she would do well in a house with children, but would do fine in a home that was quiet and would just let her be and not expect too much, though she just may surprise you. She is pretty quiet but will cry at her foster mom in the morning if she wants some attention as she is getting ready for work.

Will you be the one that will give this sweet girl a home where she can feel safe and loved? She just may surprise you and become a more affectionate girl.

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 a bonded pair is $100 per cat, vs. $175 per cat.
