Facts about Kanti

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB: April 10, 2015

Kanti came to Toronto Cat Rescue as part of Project Velcro which rescued cats from an over-capacity rural shelter. He is a wonderful cat who has come such a long way since he arrived at his foster home. For the first couple of weeks Kanti was so scared that he could not handle human contact and just tried to stay as small and hidden as he possibly could. Now he has truly become a velcro cat, one who often follows me around the house so closely I have to be careful not to trip over him, and who doesn’t hesitate to crawl all over me to get attention as soon as I’m sitting down.

When he wants attention Kanti will follow me around squeaking or climb up into my lap. He likes to climb right up and get face to face so he can’t be ignored. Sometimes he just wants to cuddle and will curl up in your lap or beside you to enjoy being pet, scratched, and having his belly rubbed. Other times he wants to play and will crawl all over you until the toys come out.

Kanti has a lot of energy and can sometimes get a bit bored and lonely without stimulation. He can also be pretty vocal about it (mostly in terms of squeaks and trills, he hasn’t quite mastered the meow yet). He needs lots of toys to play with (on his own and with his human) and preferably another cat to be friends with. He really likes other cats and its really good for him to have the company and a friend to play with.

Although Kanti is as friendly as can be with his foster mom he is still a shy and skittish cat with other people. He is a cat who will bond very strongly with someone who is willing to spend the time and patience to get to know him, but he may always be a bit shy around strangers and other people.

It has been a wonderful experience to watch Kanti come out of his shell and realize he is safe enough to get the love and attention he wants and deserves. When I first met him he stayed hiding in his tent hissing and shaking when I got even close to him. Now I am very happy to watch him run around playing and not hesitating to crawl right into my lap and curl up purring (and drooling sometimes!) in contentment. He is an absolutely adorable petite squeaky boy who will make a great companion to someone willing to take the time to get to know him.

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