rescued from a neighborhood

Hi!  I'm named Toivo but you can call me Toe!  I'm very smart - or so I'm told - more dog-like qualities.  I like following my foster mom and dad around so I can assist them with their daily chores.   They need help with all these kitties and cats, you know.   I'm very curious and playful and like humans a lot better than cats.   Young children make me nervous - I guess cause they are active, too.

When I was with my first foster, I was constantly sprayed when I tried to make friends with the two older cats in the house.  So, when the older cat(s) would swipe and growl at me, I'd also get sprayed by the human and thrown back into the cage or bathroom.   As a result, I never learned to socialize with other animals, and not only that, missed the stage on how to play like a kitten.   So my foster mom now has tried helping 'relearn' these steps.   Slowly and surely I'm making awesome strides.   I've turned out to be very loving with my foster mom.   Bottom line, I'd do better by myself with adults - just need to find a home that would appreciate my smarts and personality.  

I love being with my foster mom and playing with her or just being there with her.    I'm really a great cat - just need to find someone who could care about me as much as I would care and love that them!!  

A note from Janet (foster mom):  Toe is a very smart little feline with loads of love to give.  He had a rough and unfair start for a little kitty - poster child for all the things not to do - but he's going to make someone a good cat.   Toe just needs a second chance to a loving environment.   He'll do the rest...

About Purr Paws Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purr Paws Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3). We are a foster based rescue, meaning that we do not have a shelter. All of our cats and kittens live with their foster families until adoption. We are a no-kill rescue, meaning that we do not euthanize for space. Quality of life is important to us.

Purr Paws Rescue is always looking for new foster homes and volunteers to help with adoption days, transport, and the adoption center at Petsmart Cypress.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoptions on most Saturday's and Sunday's at Petsmart Cypress (Hwy 290 @ Spring-Cypress) from Noon to 4pm. For more information, please check out our website.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a $95 adoption fee which helps cover the costs of getting the cats and kittens to adoptable status. We do have an application, which can be filled out online on our website, and then a contract upon approval.
