Facts about Mathilda

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB Septebmer 5, 2016
Matty was about 5-6 weeks old when she was found, alone, on October 9. On October 21, she came to her foster home, along with excellent litter box, eating and scratching post manners. Matty had some trouble gaining weight but is now strong, healthy, active and beautiful.

At first, Matty wasn’t sure if she wanted to be picked up and held. However, as she watched her foster brother being cuddled, she decided it wasn’t so bad and climbed up to join him. She now regularly invites herself onto a nearby lap and purrs happily. When she has had her fill, she departs to do something else... chasing a wand toy or spring or ball or a shadow or the tail of a big cat--anything that jumps and twirls and tempts!

Matty is a calm, gentle and fairly independent kitten. She will probably be good with small children who treat her respectfully. She could perhaps be an “only” cat but only if she is not left alone for extended periods. She loved playing with her foster brother, Babu, and when he left to live with a rabbit, she looked for him and was sad. She invites the resident cats to play and is very brave in approaching them.

Matty has a soft and silky coat, a tiny “milk moustache” and bright green/gold eyes. She has had access to many types of food but prefers raw and especially raw quail and chicken hearts as treats. There is an excellent complete raw diet prepared in Ontario as well as freeze-dried complete raw diets, so continuing to feed raw should not be a problem. She will go to her forever home with a starting supply of favourite foods.

Matty answers to her name already. She is a smart, pretty, interesting and over-all lovely kitten who will make someone very happy. Her foster family is already missing her and would happily adopt her if it were in her best interest. Sweet, funny little Matty!!

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.
