Facts about Anastasia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB April 20, 2014.

Anastasia is a beautiful speckled princess who had a bad start in life and is now learning to trust. She needs an owner who will have a lot of patience with her slow progress, and who will be proud of each step she takes towards being a relaxed kitty. Ana is easily startled by quick movements and loud noises. When she is comfortable and you are still, she will come out to play and frolic, but until that time you should expect her to hide a lot. She would do best in a home with other friendly animals, as she enjoys their company and also learns from their example. Because she nips when excited, she would not do well in a home with children.

Once she has learned to trust you, she absolutely LOVES to be petted and is very affectionate. Same with being brushed - once she is touched with the brush, she will flop all over trying to get every spot of her brushed! She will also play as long as you're willing to wave a wand or laser pointer. She loves to bat around crinkle balls. She can be vocal, meowing with her very cute tiny meow to let you know she wants more pets or more playtime!

Here is a video to show just how sweet Ana can be: https://vimeo.com/193789239

Ana came from a hoarding situation, and so did not have proper socialization and stability in her early years. Her fearful nature comes from this. It is recommended to start her in a very small space like a bathroom, and then into a bigger space like a bedroom and so on. When she is very stressed out, Ana gets diarrhea that can be sorted out with the introduction of psyllium husks into her diet for a few days.

Ana really really wants to trust and let herself be loved, she just needs the right people who will let her get there. Once she blossoms you will find yourself with the cuddliest, sweetest friend! Her foster mom is very proud of each step Ana has taken towards confidence.

Come meet this beautiful girl today and prepare to be dazzled!

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 adopt@torontocatrescue.ca.

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!

Note:

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.
