Facts about Lola

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
DOB January 29, 2010.

Lola is a gorgeous girl with silky black fur and sparking yellow eyes. She has had a rough start in life. She was born outside and very sick as a kitten and although she survived, she lived a very lonely life. It was only through the kindness of one person that she survived. Sadly, that person moved and was not able to take Lola with her. That’s when Lola came to TCR. She was so depressed she wouldn’t eat, but after a while and lots of TLC, and she began to eat, but she was still withdrawn.
Things started to change when Lola discovered TOYS! She loves to play with many kinds of toys including the mouse dangling from a string in the doorway, her scratching post, or even her turbo chaser. She is in heaven when playing! Lola is still very nervous around people and will hide until she feels really safe. It's taken her a while, but she is often found staring at her foster mom from afar and giving her smiles with her eyes.

Lola has also become friends with the other cats in her foster home and can often be found cuddled up next to the household cat Romeo. She has learned by watching the other cats, therefore its best for her to go to a home where there is at least one other friendly cat.

Lola is extremely well behaved in that she only uses her scratching posts for her claws, has no issues with using the litter box, and has never been seen on a counter. As well, despite her initial distrust of strangers, when she is finally caught she remains quiet and well behaved for the vet.
Lola is becoming more social everyday but she needs a patient adopter who will help her come out of her shell and give her time to learn to trust. When Lola gets very stressed she does not lash out, rather the opposite; she withdraws into herself and stops eating. For this reason, when she goes to a new home, its best if she is kept in a small room to start so her eating habits can easily be monitored. At this stage, she sometimes has to be convinced to eat, but this is easily done and accepted by her. She needs a gentle reminder to get her going. Once she remembers how yummy her food is she will get back to her normal self. Won't you give this beautiful girl the happy ending she deserves?

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...

***AUGUST ONLY*** All our cats two years and older have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. our standard fee of $175).

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 an adult bonded pair (8 months or older) is $100 per cat vs. $175 per cat.
