Facts about Rose

  • Breed: Abyssinian
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
DOB June 9, 2010.

Rose is an incredibly sweet lap cat. She is constantly getting up on our laps or rubbing against our legs, or petting herself with our hands. She is very playful, with her favourite toys being soft balls. She carries them around in her mouth and presents them as gifts. She almost never meows, but purrs like a motor.

Rose gets along very well with the other two adult cats in her foster home, but she doesn't like the idea of sharing her humans and gets displeased if the other cats approach when she is sitting on our laps. However, she happily eats and sleeps side by side with them.

Rose was surrendered by her previous owner in April of 2017 to Toronto Animal Services, and has been staying with her Toronto Cat Rescue foster family since June. Her foster family shares: "Rose is the easiest foster cat we've ever taken in. She was on my lap within hours of coming to our house, and needed no adjustment to our cats or our toddler. She even tolerated my toddler trying to put a t-shirt on her!". Adopt sweet Rose, she would love to curl up in your lap!

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.
