Meow! My name is Roller
|Breed:||Siamese||Color:||Brown Or Chocolate||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.
DOB December 1, 2009. Roller is a handsome neutered siamese/snowshoe cross with bright blue eyes. He is a sturdy, muscular brute! Roller lived outside close to a notorious housing project for at least a year. Despite his tough guy looks, Roller turned out to be a friendly affectionate cat who had no trouble making friends with his female foster person. Roller loves to keep himself looking sharp, so he grooms constantly. He also has a snaggle tooth on his lower jaw, which makes his smile a little crooked. Roller tested as FIV+ but despite this blood test he is a healthy and robust boy. Most cats with FIV can lead healthy and normal lives on a healthy diet and with regular vet checks, and Roller seems to definitely be one of those!
Roller loves to get pet, is happy to get picked up, gives affectionate head butts, and loves to sleep in a lap. He is playful and loves to charge around after toys. He says "Eeeerrr..." a lot, so Roller may be a pirate (ship unknown). Roller also has some special feelings about bathroom sinks. He believes that when he is in a sink that he is invisible, but also that no one is supposed to touch him when he is having some sink time! He rolls around ecstatically like it is the best thing in the world.
Roller is in a foster home with several other cats. He seems unnerved around other cats, and can act like a bully towards them. He can occasionally be moody towards people, particularly when he sees another cat. Roller would probably be happiest as an only cat. He would do fine in a quieter household, with respectful children over 12. His signals are easy to read when he feels moody, and his good humour returns promptly when he is given a little space. He seems more shy meeting men than women. He can be a little stand-offish with new people, but once he decides that they are okay, then he will relax and happily get pet and give head butts.
Due to his former rough life, Roller is very concerned about food. He will eat unattended human food, even hot spicy curries! He will tip over garbage cans in pursuit of anything that smells like food, and jump in the kitchen sink to lick pots. Hopefully this obsessiveness will wane a little with time, but his adoptive home will need to be patient with this. Roller is a great guy who is looking for a position as the benevolent ruler of your home, and your 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!
