Rusty's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Rusty's Story...
Tested Negative for FIV and FeLV, DOB May 4, 2013.

Rusty has the characteristic cheeks of an intact male because he was neutered late in his life, but he's got a funny little meow sounding more like a kitten than such a big guy.

Handsome Rusty went from 0-100 after arriving in his foster home. He was hiding in a box when his foster parent picked him up, and then hid under the bed for a week.. but once they started brushing and patting him he started to purr and come out bit by bit. He's now a sweet cuddly boy who gets along well with his new foster sister and sleeps on the bed with his foster family. He's still a bit jumpy with sudden noise and movement, but he is loving indoor living and all the comforts of a home and family.

Rusty would be best with female feline siblings (he loves his foster sister - they give each other lots of head butts and sleep together), or in a single-cat family where he can shine.

Rusty was a street cat taken in by a Quebec animal agency. He had a neuter surgery that opened up and made him miserable, but once that was sorted out he was a new boy! His foster family shares: "While he was holed up under the bed with the annoying cone on his head, I promised him it would be so much better. He was going to go from a ragged street cat (who I'll bet lost most battles) to a prince. Now he gets it. Taking that cone off was a very happy experience for both of us. I think he was semi-feral and can't believe his luck now!". Adopt this handsome, sweet boy and make him your newest family member today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Toronto Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Toronto, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Toronto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toronto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto paves the way for another one to be saved.
