Viral tested negative, DOB March 2008. Desperado was an emaciated stray who appeared on a TCR volunteer's doorstep just before Christmas. His demeanor was so desperate that he seemed feral. He ate any food left out for him, trembling with fear and shaking with the cold. He moved into an insulated shelter with a heating pad, and began to stay close to the friendly house. He grew braver and braver until one day he began to persistently meow at his feeder, and the next day started to eat treats from her hand, purring and rubbing. He was not feral at all, but another terrified cat who had been abandoned outside in the dead of winter. Desperado adjusted quickly to life inside again - "What a relief!" he thought.
Desperado loves to be pet, and starts to purr immediately. Sometimes he purrs when he is looked at! He happily rolls around for belly rubs, loves to sit in a friendly lap and seems to have no threshold for "enough pets, already!". His affection is uninhibited. Desperado is very gentle with his claws and teeth, even when he is excited about a treat. He enjoys being vigorously combed, loves chin scratches and neck rubs, and can't get enough cat nip - ever!
Desperado is shy around loud voices and is hesitant about meeting new people. It takes a little bit of gentle work to earn his trust, but when you have it he is a loving cat with an amazing personality. Desperado is happy to socialize with female cats, and laid back male cats. He has bonded with his foster mate Mama Mia in his foster home and must be adopted with her. He is not suited for a home with children.
He is a bright orange spotted tabby, with a dollop of white on his throat, chest and feet. He has a constellation of cute freckles across his nose and lips. Desperado is very small for an adult male, with a huge tomcat head. Desperado would love to move into his forever home, where he will give you his entire happy heart.

Rescue Group Info...
Toronto Cat Rescue is a no-kill, non-profit, 100% volunteer group. TCR helps find homes for homeless, abandoned, sick or injured cats, as well as helps cats escape situations of abuse, neglect, or imminent euthanasia. TCR relies on volunteers to foster cats in their homes until a cat lover comes along to adopt them, so we know the cats personalities in a home setting! TCR saves cats from Toronto, GTA & Kitchener area.
Decided on the kitty you would like to adopt? Please call the TCR Hotline - 416-538-8592 (press 1 for adoptions and leave a message) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a pre-adoption interview.
An adoption coordinator 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.
Next 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 kitty 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 also includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations and ongoing fundraising efforts carry us the rest of the way!
