Facts about Beau

  • Breed: Hemingway/Polydactyl
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB October 14, 2014.

Don't let that little angry face fool you! Beau is a total suck and loves to be around people. He will gladly sit on your bed and purr away while getting chin scratches and head rubs. Beau loves to knead with his luscious 5-toed paws - he's a polydactyl - and will doze off with his arms stretched out in front of him in a Superman pose. He has a young and energetic personality and loves to play with toys, fetch his octo-mouse, and race around. It is hard to capture just how ridiculously cute this guy is in pictures - but his Cindy Crawford beauty mark should give you an idea.

Beau came from an over crowded shelter in Quebec and was one of 50 cats saved from death row in mid October. Beau would probably do best in a home as the only cat, so he won't have to share the attention. (He doesn't seem to be a huge fan of the other kitten in his foster home at the moment, but this could change with more time). Beau would make an excellent cat for a family with kids who are a bit older and know how to respect his space.

Beau will chase his own tail and attack it as if it is a foreign intruder! He loves feet and socks - he will lick your toes any chance he gets and will give little love bites on the feet (though he's being trained not to do this). He will gladly steal a pair of socks and bat them down the hall!

Although he has his own water dish that he likes to move around with his paw, Beau prefers to drink from the toilet (which is being discouraged) and the bathtub (which he's allowed). He's quite the character and such a sweet guy!

Beau has been through a lot and now can't wait to settle down in his forever home. You won't believe the joy he'll bring into your life! Come meet Beau today and prepare to fall in love!

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.
