Facts about Izzy

  • Breed: Hemingway/Polydactyl
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
DOB May 1, 2015.

Izzy is polydactyl, meaning she has extra toes! These toes come in handy when she's playing or wanting to look like she is wearing snowshoes. She will often stick her tongue out when getting a particularly good scritch.

Izzy is extremely affectionate. She loves to give hugs when you return to the home, and has a wonderful time rolling around in laps while getting a scratch. She is only two years old, so she still has a playful side, but is often happy just to sit and cuddle.

Izzy gets along with the big seven year old boy cats in her foster home relatively well. She likes to punch them when they aren't looking, but she can get tense if they get mad at one of her kittens. There is no reason for her to have any problems with other cats, especially when she is no longer living with her kittens. Izzy has only met dogs while being in a carrier which she did not enjoy; in time she may get used to a calm friendly dog.

Izzy is gentle but can get rowdy and try to lightly nibble fingers. It's best to have a toy on hand to switch with, especially around younger children.

Her foster family shares: "Izzy had a rough go after she gave birth to her six babies. She got an infection from a kitten who unfortunately didn't make it and had to have surgery which ultimately saved her life. She has been an amazing mom to her kittens even after she could no longer let them nurse. Izzy deserves a home where she will be loved and pampered for the rest of her life." Adopt this beauty and welcome her into your family.

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!
