Facts about Shiraz

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
DOB: October 1, 2015

Shiraz (or Shirri, as we affectionately call him), is a sweet little boy cat in need of a loving family. He's a bit shy, and likes to hide in boxes and square spaces. However, with a calming influence and a bit of patience, he'll show you what an awesome, funny little guy he is.

One of his favorite games is chasing a knotted plastic bag around the house. Most mornings and evenings, he'll walks around with his butt and tail in the air, politely directing your attention to his empty food bowl. He's a sensitive little guy, and is very well behaved. He's patient and gentle, and might be a good fit with kids.

Shirri has an ongoing eye infection, and takes a half-capsule of L-lysine with his morning and evening meals.

In the last few weeks that Shirri has been with us, he's transformed with a scared little kitty hiding in his litterbox to an affectionate, curious little thing. He's completely stolen our hearts and we hope that his adopting family will give him his forever home, and that he'll never have to see a shelter again.

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!
